The Governor's Visit

Our Governor of Massachusetts, Deval Patrick, visited the Dedham Farmer's Market and Dedham Square. He talked to quite a few people and bought some food at the market. Dedham Square Circle asked me to design a poster to show all the community organizations that are active in Dedham. The them was to be patriotic but not over the top. I used some of my photos that I have taken of Dedham. It was fun to meet the Governor and hear him speak. The Governor is up for re-election this year.

Party Flyer

My latest flyer! This one was a very fun one. I wanted a retro look to give you the feel of hanging out at Kings. The flyer is for a benefit party that Dedham Community House is having at Kings. Kings has a cool vibe and is a great place to bowl or just hang out with friends.

The Dedham Community House is a wonderful organization that hosts classes, has a fun outdoor pool and a summer camp. It is a wonderful asset to the community.

Italian School Logo

I have a new design challenge. A friend of mine would like to offer Italian classes to kids and adults. It will be small at first. She studied in Italy for a few years. She wants the logo to reflect Italy and the area she lived in Italy, Arezzo. She was looking for something like the Crest of Arezzo, with it's horse and crown. I wanted to design something similar but not a direct copy. Another challenge is using the two names. One in English and one in Italian. I have given my client a few choices on this first round.

Travel Design

My uncle recently, went to Paris. He did a little shopping over there. He knows will be going to Germany and France, next month. He sent me these funky gifts, a passport cover, luggage tag, and tote bag for my birthday. I the photo directly above is the wrapping paper they came in. So cool! All the gifts are from the shop Pylones. They are so bright and fun.

He knows I love tote bags. I am trying to be nice top the environment. In Europe it is better to bring your own bags. Check out the store for all their neat and fun things. From housewares to fun and games. Thanks Uncle John!

Wonder Woman Makeover

Wonder Woman has had the just about the same outfit for 69 years. I remember watching the show when I was a bit younger, circa 1975. Debra Winger was Wonder Woman's, side kick Wonder Girl Drusilla, for a few episodes. I loved the rope and the invisible plane. She both tough and beautiful! I like the new outfit. More modern, she looks very cool, tough girl who take on the bad guys and girls.

This is good for a laugh
