THE BIG PICNIC : EVENT PROGRAM ///// This small booklet was handed out at Stern Grove Festival Association's annual fundraiser, The Big Picnic, which helps keep the Festival's popular summer concert series free for the San Francisco Bay Area. The event is a rustic yet VIP affair in the Grove, which is known for its eucalyptus trees. The design draws upon the experience of picnicking under fluttering leaves, keepsake vinyl in tow, in hopes that one of the visiting music stars will sign it. ///// ROLE: Art direction, design, photo retouching ///// AWARDED: GD USA American Graphic Design Award

KEY TO SAN FRANCISCO : GIFT INSERT ///// This mini brochure, slightly larger than a business card, was created to accompany a novel client and media gift distributed by San Francisco Travel: a reproduction of cellhouse key 107, the key at the center of the Alcatraz '46 escape attempt. I expanded the nine-square motif of SF Travel's logo into an abstract key illustration that recurs throughout the design ///// ROLE: Art direction, design, digital illustration, photo editing/color correction ///// AWARDED: GD USA American Inhouse Design Award

SAN FRANCISCO HAS NEVER LOOKED MORE GOLDEN : CONFERENCE PROGRAM (1/2) ///// In 2012, the San Francisco Travel Association adopted the theme "San Francisco Has Never Looked More Golden" for its B2B materials. The theme was developed in celebration of the Golden Gate Bridge's 75th birthday and a number of other major events (US Open, America's Cup, etc.). This booklet was developed as a program and notebook for a B2B conference hosted by the Association. The hero image on the cover incorporates a sunburst, a gentle nod to the Golden Gate Bridge's Art Deco elements. The back cover features a photo of the rivets on the bridge. ///// ROLE: Art direction, design, digital illustration

SAN FRANCISCO SNAPSHOT : CITY BROCHURE FOR CONVENTION ATTENDEES (1/2) ///// When groups select San Francisco for their conferences, meetings and conventions, they can order a city brochure through the San Francisco Travel Association to get their membership bases excited about registering for and traveling to an event. Following a rebrand, the Association needed a new city brochure selling the "SF 101" experience. Drawing upon the striking vermilion of the Golden Gate Bridge and the paned SF Travel bridge icon, I created the San Francisco Snapshot brochure from the ground up; in addition to designing the brochure, I wrote all the copy. My goal was to build an informative, enticing and vibrant piece of collateral that would attract a diverse audience ranging from young to old, conservative to cutting-edge. ///// ROLE: Art direction, copywriting, design, photo retouching
