(note: the top sliders and Exterro section were added later and was not designed by me but their in-house designer) AccessData hired me to design and project manage (hiring and managing the writer and 3 developers) a 250 page website launch. Each page is uniquely designed with many special tabs and features. She then hired me to design and manage two other sites promoting their 30th anniversary, as well as, an event. After finishing the site, the client loved the look-and-feel so much they used my designs to influence a new company brand on all their marketing pieces.
I was a VP of marketing for a legal eDiscovery software and services company. During the five year period, taking the existing logo, I grew the company image, into a much more progressive and modern brand. My goal for designing this corporate brochure was to set the company apart from competitors, in a rather dry industry, with eye-catching graphics and intriguing content. Most of the images were created by combining a several photos and effects. Picking out three words to place on the images that describe the content helped to create curiosity. Coming up with creative headlines, and working with the writer to streamline the content, gave us an effective message captured new interest.

I was hired by an agency quite awhile ago to design a 12 page corporate identity brochure, launching Enfrastructure (which is now called TechSpace). The black and white images are silver duo-tones, so they have a beautiful shimmer. The brochure helped launch their new concept successfully into a thriving business today.
I had the opportunity to design glass art for an office in London. The software company wanted to boost their employees moral by making the office atmosphere more creative. The large illustrations were done in Adobe Illustrator, pulling from the images, icons, and illustrations I used in the past to develop the brand.
This video is one of the first I designed explaining Quantum Leap for expert benchmarking. It launched a series of videos describing features and processes.
HaystackID contacted me after I designed their company logo and wanted me to design a logo for an offering “ReviewRight” eDiscovery technology.
I had the privilege to work with Rob Robinson, the CMO for HaystackID LLC and legal discovery technologist, to design the new logo mark for Haystack ID. Rob and I kept in touch for years, always knowing it would be great to work together in some capacity. It paid off for us, as we had a great experience working together. They love the logo and have used it to influence their brand image across all collateral.
Tricia Martin wanted a website designed especially with her taste in mind. Even though she sells her books on Amazon, she wanted a site where people can get to know her better, read about all her books, and follow her blog posts. We thoroughly enjoyed working together and will continue to work on the site as the days go by. Her beautiful heart reflects in her writings and after reading her work I found myself feeling very calm and peaceful. Her website can be viewed at: soulbreakthru.com

Worked with The Hackett Group to create the brand for QuantumLeap. Designed the ad, sells sheet, video animation and a kiosk to hold the monitor… a quick turn around for a trade show that proved to be a big success.
I had the pleasure of designing this event website promoting a partner conference in Dublin. Top navigation pulls you down the page instead of to another page. Here’s the link to the site: http://accessdata.com/partner-conference-dublin/
I wanted to create a warm and inviting brand that’s professional and friendly. I updating their colors by brightening the hues, updating the corporate logo by decreasing the size of the icon, choose a specific font to match, designed the technology logos, designed and produced content for the website and multiple brochures, e-blasts, webinars, invitations, banners and all promotional materials. The company has been receiving the due attention a well defined brand deserves! (This website is no long active.)

Dara Sandrini, a friend of mine, came to me wanting a logo for her new personal fitness and training business venture. I wanted to design a logo that was personal to her so we took inspiration from her tattoo and turned it into a logo! It fits her personality perfectly. Now she’s getting requests for t-shirts and hats!
The Hackett Group contacted me to create an invitation inviting their distinguished guests to a cocktail hour at the Museum of Natural History. The exhibit had the largest displays of dinosaurs. I designed an invitation that had a die-cut around the dinosaur, opening to full-bleed greens. It was a big success and created excitement and momentum.
It’s such a pleasure to design a postcard for Shelby Nolan with Green Leaf Design. She designed the flowers for our wedding ceremony and reception. With a romantic, magical, baroque feel, everyone was mesmerized by her creativity. She produced exactly what I had visioned. Shelby wanted a postcard for a spring promotional. She can hand it out as a business card or mail it to her clients.
Nothing is more rewarding than to finally design my own wedding and all the printed pieces that go with having a wedding. The brand turned out better then I had imagined.

Spellbound Development Group, Inc. is starting a new division of their company called CrewSafe. A restaurant can join the CrewSafe Alliance to benefit from discounted prices on restaurant supplies! Companies like McDonald’s, Taco Bell, KFC, CKE, Pizza Hut and Jack In The Box are all members of CrewSafe Alliance. CrewSafe came to me asking to come up with some ideas for a national campaign to draw attention to independent franchise owners to join the alliance. Using bold colors to match their website, I wrote fun attention getting headlines and imagery to motivate membership. These three inserts stack one on top of each other and is inserted into a die-cut folder to show headlines on the top.
