page design

Paper and ink

This might not mean much to people whose idea of fun is ziplining or parasailing, but I do so enjoy page design. The very quiet, contemplative exercise of finding balance among shapes and colors. Like Japanese rock gardening, or like I imagine it to be, but since I’ve never Japanese rock gardened, I could have that wrong.

My client list has included manufacturers, utilities, colleges, hospitals, and retailers. Projects have included the usual print pieces – brochures, booklets, die-cutting, embossing – as well as outdoor boards, park signs, T-shirts, coffee mugs, enameled pins, tote bags, and lanyards (which I’d never heard of before I was asked to design one).
