Video I produced for the Texas State Library and Archives Commission’s latest exhibit, Texans’ Struggle for Freedom and Equality which offers visitors the opportunity to view documents and images integral to Texas’ social history, illustrating the heroic efforts of early Texas settlers, the consequences of Indian and Mexican conflicts, demands for civil rights for African-Americans and Tejanos and the campaign for women’s suffrage.
As Communications officer of the Texas State Library and Archives Commission, I recently took on the task of re-designing and re-branding the image of the agency. The mission of the Texas State Library and Archives Commission is to safeguard significant resources, provide information services that inspire and support research, education and reading, and enhance the capacity for achievement of current and future generations. The new logo incorporates our iconic deco-style building into three options of a logo that is now used on all agency collateral, letterhead and external media.

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.
Recently I had the pleasure of working with St. Charles, Missouri based ABC Daycare and Learning Center to update their web site and freshen their look. The new site features many updated visual elements, sliders, parent testimonials and maps to help prospective parents find the perfect location for their preschooler.
I produced and edited this segment highlighting the unique bond that is held between the electrical linemen who are responsible for keeping the energy flowing to countless homes across the mid-west. The piece was featured as part of the St. Louis based reality/health lifestyle series The JJK Effect, hosted by olympic gold medalist Jackie Joyner-Kersee.
