The Mountaineers 2017 Annual Report
I was beyond thrilled to work once again with The Mountaineers on their 2017 annual report. Using a square shaped page was a refreshing departure from the more typical letter-sized booklet. This format provided ample space for large photos and clean layouts that feature plenty of white space. And speaking of photos, this organization is not at loss for excellent photography.

I was thrilled to work with The Mountaineers, an organization that I have been involved with numerous times as a member and class participant, and have a hand in the look and feel of their Youth Education Brochure. The youth focused programs at The Mountaineers give young people of all ages opportunities to find outdoor adventure and learn new skills with their youth, teen, and family programs. Researching the project, I dug into my copies of Mountaineers hiking guides, all published circa 1970. I was inspired by the detailed hand-drawn map illustrations of Marge Mueller that accompany each trail description and wanted to pull these maps into the brochure design. More
Wind Rose Cellars and North Olympic Land Trust
I’m very excited about collaborating with Wind Rose Cellars and North Olympic Land Trust, a long time client, on a wine label design for the Field Blend Red Table Wine. I used this project as an excuse to get inky, and ended up printing a 13-pass reduction cut on my Vandercook Universal 1. Read on to get the full scoop on our process for this artwork, from inspiration to planning to production. Proceeds from the sale of this wine will benefit North Olympic Land Trust. More

PCC Farmland Trust
PCC Farmland Trust’s 2015 annual report broke the mold of typical year-end financials. Instead of spending extra pages (and dollars) on lengthy donor lists, the Trust opted to keep things simple. The primary method of distribution was an over-sized postcard that highlighted key accomplishments from the year. A smaller print run of booklets was also produced for occasions where more detailed information needed to be shared. We kept things branded by using consistent photography on all support materials, which include a in-store sign and web banner.
appeal for PCC Farmland Trust was branded ‘Forever Farms’. The infinity symbol was used along with the type lockup in order to add a quick visual cue reinforcing this concept. The entire package included an A7 card and envelope and A2 response card and envelope along with web and social media graphics.

PCC Farmland Trust
There are many good reasons why protecting farmland is a good plan. We helped PCC Farmland Trust answer the question of why this matters by creating an easy to understand, visually engaging infographic that explains why. Originally designed to fit a 8.5×14″ legal sized document, the components of this infographic can be pulled and used individually for targeted pieces, and the entire piece was enlarged to fit a 40×84″ tradeshow banner.
