Northern Africa and Middle Eastern Peoples

When the International Mission Board (IMB) shifted their focus from regions to people (affinity sites), all regional sites needed to be updated to the new corporate structure. The North African and Middle Eastern (NAME) people’s affinity required a new colour palette and site design in keeping with the new IMB corporate site.

In addition to the site design, I also created a “non-logo” brand for the NAME teams, which can be seen here.

With the shift of focus away from people groups at the IMB, the above-mentioned site is (sadly) no longer active.

Site redesign(s) – Western Europe Regional site

The three images below show a site design progression for the Western Europe regional site. The first two images are a before and after look at the site, while the third image shows the result of a move towards “People Group” focus.

Site redesign, circa 2007

Present site design

My involvement on the site was as follows: first design – 0%; second design – 100%; third (and existing) design – 75%

With the shift in focus away from people groups, the IMB site(s) above are (sadly) no longer active.

Yearbook ad

While living overseas, I was asked to create small (1/2 page) ads for a local private school in the Black Forest. This is one example of a typical ad. Names have been obscured for security reasons.

Western Europe Poster

A poster/table-top display created for a conference. This piece incorporates two well-known Western European landmarks over a background “sea of faces” to get viewers to engage in more than just tourism while on travel in Europe.

In addition to designing the poster and the use of recognizable landmarks, I also coined the phrase “look beyond the landmarks” to be used with many different silhouetted landmark images in subsequent designs.

Coppelia Poster

A modern retelling of the Coppelia story – set in Manhattan and adding hip-hop and jazz numbers – the West End Academy version of this ballet required a poster with a little of the old and a little of the new … and a little nod to the Godfather film series. Created in Adobe Illustrator CS3 with freehand vector art (no stock art).

Poisoned Dwarf – CD

Poisoned Dwarf cover for their premiere CD.

The stained-glass design was designed based on a similar window found in a local pub (The Green Leafe Cafe) in Williamsburg, VA. As I am now doing some stained-glass work, this may be fun to actually build …
