Book characters are coming to life, and the iconic portrait of George Frideric Handel is encompassed by a classic cello. These ads allowed me the creative freedom to think outside the box and create rich visuals with tapestries, ornate patterns and playful typography — all of which make a big impact to promote these philanthropic events.

Why am I an RGD?To be an advocate for the graphic design profession and uphold the values and merit of the work we do.
Why am I a designer?My mind is a perpetual kaleidoscope of sights that inspire me and images searching for an escape hatch. I learned at a very young age that I could channel this into creative outlets, such as drawing, painting and writing. My affinity for form and function married perfectly with my overactive imagination. Design was the most logical vehicle to bring it all together.
