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 and inspire others to take action.
Every project should start with careful analysis, bringing the best ideas forward. My approach is to focus your core message, distilling the essence of design into solutions that resonate and compel an audience to action.
Successful design is not only style, rather it is the result of critical thinking.

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 I've done.

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.

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.
