It is a special pleasure to be a part of a strong campaign team for an especially strong candidate. Susan Harden is an smart educator, gifted in collaboration and communication, and an excellent prospect for our community's leadership.

I worked with her team to refine campaign branding and develop a campaign website.

Signage: Dilworth Artisan Station

Dilworth Artisan Station is an old building in the historic SouthEnd neighborhood of Charlotte, and is home to working artists' studios, interior designers, and professional offices.  This summer, I worked with the buildings owners, twin brothers Bob and Dick Fuller of Crossland Studio, to design a marquee listing artist studio tenants. Fred Hutchinson of Fred Vinyl steered our material selections, fabricated and installed the sign. (Thanks, Fred!)

Earlier this year, I designed window signage for Crossland, an architectural antiques restorer, and my client Anne Neilson's new gallery in the building's ground floor.

Event: Love Thy Neighbor

We enjoyed an inspirational evening with The Harvest Center and special guest Kathie Lee Gifford tonight at the Westin, their biggest-ever "Love Thy Neighbor" annual fundraiser.  I was honored to help plan this event, to provide design of programs, banners and other visual marketing materials, and to participate as one of 900 guests in this lovely dinner!

I look forward to quality photography from the pros, but until then, share a few pre-party captures from this well-executed event.

Thanks are in order to Fred Hutchinson of Artistic Images for the swift printing and installation of our window signage!

New Signage: K. Interiors

I am tickled with the beautiful sign erected this week at 708 East Boulevard. Clients K. Interiors, Deep Branch, and Heidi Kirschner have inhabited a new space in this old Dilworth house and we worked hard at the end of last year to design signage that would reflect their impeccable taste, clean aesthetic, and provide good visibility in their new high-traffic spot.

We created a metal sign with modular elements that would allow them flexibility as they took on new residents.  Primary letters are raised, with secondary lines printed, a solution that provided the drama of three-dimensional signage while allowing the flexiblity of providing additional information at a scale that wasn't cut out for diecut lettering.

Printer/Manufacturer Pheonix Signs was terrific to work with and produced a beautiful sign that my cursory photos are not doing justice.
