New Website: Wendy Bilas

We've just launched this fresh, new website for artist Wendy Bilas. Built on the Squarespace platform, Wendy's site has been updated with a clean, modern styling and has been designed so that she can easily maintain content herself.

It is a pleasure to work with an artist this talented, business-savvy, and tech-competent.

I've been working with Artist Wendy Bilas to produce some marketing materials, ads, and a new website (still in the works). It is always an honor to help present the work of incredibly talented artists, especially one as kind and gracious as Wendy.

Fall Art Shows: Powell, Bilas, Dowdy, Fuller

The Holiday are approaching and the artists are gathering their works for art shows and studio sales.

Next week, client Lesley Powell will host clients in her new studio in Dilworth Artisan Station for an Open Studio Sale on Oct 25, and on November 7-8 Wendy Bilas, Christina Dowdy and Jenny Fuller will host an event with guest artists offering jewelry, ceramics and knitworks. I prepared printed invitations and email versions for both of these shows.

Athletes United For Youth: 2008 Celebrity Sizzle Invitation

Athletes United for Youth, the non-profit organization of Jay Bilas, Steve Smith and Dell Curry, provides free after-school care and summer programs, computer learning centers, mentoring and substance abuse prevention programs for over 400 children in Charlotte's most at-risk, under-served communities.

Bilas called on us to design an upscale, yet cost-efficient invitation for their annual fund raising dinner at Ruth's Chris Steak House.  The tea-length invitation was produced using affordable full-color digital offset printing to allow nice reproductions of their photos and to fit in their stock #10 envelopes.  Included with the invitation was a 2-sided reply card and reply envelope.

Group Art Show Postcard: Wendy Bilas, Christina Dowdy, Jenny Fuller

Charlotte artists Wendy Bilas, Christina Dowdy and Jenny Fuller asked me to create a postcard to promote a group show they hosted during the holidays.  The biggest challenge with including multiple artists in one piece is to select and arrange the work of all artists in a harmonious, complementary way.  Often the styles and palates of the artist differ, as does their vision of the finished product.   Here, we were able to find a color scheme and simple layout that evenly highlighted the work of all three artists.
