More Fun Than Florida was a week-long program for teens at the Huntington Library. We wanted to do a throwback to the stereotypical vintage vacation postcards, and tried to mimic the feel with the marketing for this event.
Half the fun of the travel is the esthetic of lostness.
To the surprise of no one that knows me, Ray Bradbury is my favorite author. I snatch at any work he’s ever done, and one of the top items on my bucket list is to read every word he’s ever published.
One thing that always struck me, reading his books, was his language. Words rolled out of his characters’ mouths like butter. He’d be so descriptive of the scene that I’d find myself winded and smelling the morning dew, just like the boys running through the morning grass in his books. And I realized, his words held a lot of wisdom. So I decided I’d like to make some posters featuring quotes of his that hit home for me. This is the first. You can buy it on Søciety6.
The Peabody Retirement Community is one of the premier retirement communities in northeast Indiana. Every year in April, they hold a Tulip Festival, to celebrate the thousands of beautiful tulips on their grounds. In 2013, they rebranded their business, and this meant the logo I’d done for their Tulip Festival in 2012 had to be updated as well. This was the resulting mark, used on print, digital, and even bus advertising.
