My Newest Flyers for the Dedham Guild

This flyer show the Guild Working with Non-Profit Catching Joy to Celebrate International Dot Day On September 15th. I love all the color of the Catching joy logo. This flyer is  in the coffee shop, Mocha Java where the Dot cards are on display.

Yeah, The Dedham Square Artist Guild is turning 2 years old!! Big party in the works. I thought of having the number 2 should be very prominent.

This is for the Dedham Square Artist Guild Open reception at the Dedham Community Theatre. Fun show! I had to come up with this design very quickly. Istock photo to the rescue!

Cambridge Symphony Orchestra, Brochure Design

My latest brochure for the Cambridge Symphony Orchestra. I have been designing for this non-profit organization for many years. This year, I was able to meet their conductor, Cynthia Woods and many of the dedicated people who run this orchestra. 

I went with a new color scheme this year inspired by Design Seeds Blog. I have always had a bit of trouble with colors and putting colors together. The blog was a big help. I was able to work with new photos this year and I changed up the design a bit. I think the brochure looks pretty fresh.

Recent Designs

These are some of my most recents designs. My clients are Dedham Square Artist Guild and Dedham Shines. These are for up coming events for these two organizations. I have tried to use bold colorful designs to attract the audiences attention to these events while keeping the ads and flyers readable.

It helps when my source material are bright logos and beautiful artwork. I took many of the photos of the art used in these designs.

Street Seats, Design Museum Boston

This is a fun program/art idea by the Design Museum, Boston. I spotted two of these benches on the Harbor walk in Boston. You can take a tour of the benches around the Fort Point Channel area in Boston. There are artists from 23 countries that have designed these benches. There is lots of great information about the project, artists, locations, etc.  Click here. It is a fun way of thinking about design, art and sitting.

Flyer Design, Dedham Guild

As part of the Dedham Square Artist Guild marketing team I am able to design many of the flyers that we put on the web, social media and in the gallery.

I usually don't like to design flyers. It is a little bit intimidating. How do you have an exciting image to attract a viewer and also have all the information needed?

I am always looking on graphic design sites to glean ideas and see the newest style in flyer design.

Flyer design is becoming so much easier for me.

Poodle, Groomer logo design

It has been a awhile and I plan to post here more. 

These are logo ideas for a Grooming Business and also a groomer of my cat, Milly. My cat is very fuzzy and hairy and Jessica of FURRocious  is great with her. 

My client wanted to have a basic poodle with a spiky collar. She is a owner of a poodle named Gigi. The bottom logo is the final. My client wants to do a niche market of small dogs and cats. Business cards, Facebook, website and more coming up....
