Creative Persistence

For nearly 20 years, I've deployed graphic design in the service of justice and equality. In the streets or online, that experience can help mobilize others to take action and win.

The only failure
is giving up!

Make no mistake, America is being tested. It is up to each of us to step forward and make a difference.

Design is a
good idea!

A solid idea is the
essential ingredient to
successful design and
good ideas are
themselves a result of
the design process.
Logos are a good example, here are a
few that I've created.

Design the process

In nature, form follows function. How things look is a product of how things work. The same is true in graphic design.


Human Rights Campaign (HRC) presented a common problem: how to publish numerous reports and brochures, while maintaining a cohesive look and feel. Here I created a design system where each publication could maintain its own character, while still remaining part of the HRC family.


Public Citizen logo redesign
The solution for Public Citizen was one of emphasis, both in the image’s perspective and use of color. Also a practical matter, redeploying the Statue of Liberty was a natural progression for Public Citizen.

“This is no time for timidity.” — Paul Wellstone
A native of Michigan, I came to Washington, D.C. in 1999 with the intention of fighting bigotry and the abuse of power with my skills as a graphic designer.  That journey is far from over, but with faith and resolve, I know together we will ultimately prevail.

As a designer for think tanks and non-profits in Washington DC, including Bloomberg Philanthropies, Human Rights Campaign and Public Citizen, I’ve contributed to this fight by deploying creative leadership and thoughtful ideas to help us win in the marketplace of ideas. Let’s get to work!
