Winning Awards Equals Happy Clients!

Thursday, June 21st, 2012

I recently attended a banquet, at which I was honored to receive a number of awards that recognized the images I made for a few of my clients. In attendance were Patrick, Carolyn and Mark from Gerard Design, Brian and Matt from Navistar, And Mary and Barb from AMP Corp. Rock and Dennis from OfficeMax weren’t able to attend, but I heard they were very happy indeed! For Navistar and AMP we won a Gold Hermes along with a Platinum Communicator Award for the work we did for the “On Command” campaign, and for OfficeMax we won a Platinum Hermes for the work we did for the “Store In A Store” ad campaign . I’m so fortunate to be able to work for such passionate and skilled professionals, and being able to call them friends is the icing on the cake!

Great job everyone!

Ryan Partnership for GlaxoSmithKline

Monday, June 18th, 2012

A while ago I had the pleasure of working with Wendy Miranda, a senior art director at The Ryan Partnership. We made portraits of experts in the field of addiction control, for a stop-smoking campaign that was sponsored by Wal-mart and GlaxoSmithKline, the maker of Nicorette and Nicoderm CQ. Since I used Nicorette to successfully help me quit smoking, I was proud to be part of the project. We worked in tandem with a film crew, on a sound stage, shooting portraits in between motion takes. Thanks to my good friend Marty Rhomberg and the wonderful staff at Optimus, the shoot went off without a hitch.
