The 2013-2014 TSLAC Biennial Report comprises highlights of data presented in a graphical form from the most recent two years of operation of the Texas State Library and Archives Commission. The data includes information from the Texas State Library, Texas State Archive, Library Development and Networking Services and Texas Talking Book Program. The design falls directly in line with the new graphic standards I have implemented at the agency as Communications Officer.

Brief: I was approached by the advocacy department of the Archdiocese of St. Louis to design a campaign to help raise awareness of the deportation and separation of immigrant families in the city of St. Louis and the State of Missouri and to promote the passage of comprehensive immigration reform. As part of the first phase of the campaign, collateral was created to be used as mail action pieces to be signed by parishioners and sent to key decision making legislators in Washington D.C. The second phase of the campaign will include additional print materials and an art installation on Cherokee Street, the thriving epicenter of multicultural St. Louis.
In an effort to help raise funds for the relocation and reconstruction of a beloved St. Louis area bookstore, I developed these “book bonds” as a way for customers to invest in the store’s new location as well as guarantee/encourage continued patronage in the future. Book lovers could purchase these book bonds, printed on some very lovely linen textured paper stock, for less than the face value of the actual bond. The purchaser could then use the current value of the bond, or wait six months for the bond to fully mature, thus getting a return on his or her literary investment. The bonds were a big hit during the holiday season, as they made the perfect “gift that keeps on giving.” Literally.
Print materials and website designed for Community Health Vote, a non-partisan voting rights organization working to make voter registration readily accessible via more than 1,200 of America’s Community Health Centers. The easily navigable site allows health care professionals to search localized voter registration procedures in their state.
Fundraising design and event coordination for St. Louis independent bookstore, the Book House, featuring more than 2o “locally grown” authors in support of the construction of the book store’s new location.
In keeping with the “locally grown” theme the event also features local beer samplings from Schlafly Brewery and silent auction items from area businesses.
T-shirt/Visual branding for KOOP 91.7 FM‘s (Austin, TX) 2013 Fall Membership Drive. The design features notable Austin landmarks including the moonlight tower, Texas State Capitol dome, El Federico’s mural of Mary, and the “i love you so much” tag. All underlined by the Congress Ave. Bridge complete with an iconic flock of bats.
