Save the Date Card

Save the Date Card

I created this Save the Date Card for my own wedding in December. We had a winter theme that used red, gray and black as the primary ceremony colors. The idea behind the design was to capture the idea of romance in a winter wonderland. This card was later turned into a larger poster.

Miss Pole’s Assorted Cards

Katana Business Card Prototype

This was a prototype for a limited addition business card we designed and produced. We called it the Katana (click here to view the Katana in action), after the double bladed samurai sword. When one side of the card was pulled, the other side simultaneously came out in the opposite direction, allowing for a lot of room for company information, bios and much, much more. We created less than 250 of these cards and distributed them at special events. These cards were designed to leave an impression, and they never failed.

Magazine Oil Illustration

TOil on Canvas Illustrationhis was an oil on canvas illustration I created for Fare Magazine during the winter of 2008. The concept for the illustration was to accompany an article written on proper table etiquette for various public and private dinner settings.

I attempted to capture a more timeless appearance by opting to create a 1950s feel, by bringing in retro looking characters and themes.
