The Jefferson City Public School district (Jefferson City, Missouri) was established in 1838. Since its beginnings, Jefferson City High School has proven to be one of the most successful schools for both athletics and academics in the state. To celebrate the 175th anniversary of this esteemed institution, representatives of the school board contracted my services to help increase the visibility of the school’s alumni network, and to help build a database of engaged and informed former students.
Facebook engagement among this demographic proved to be the most successful messaging tool, netting more than 1, 500 Facebook fans/followers in less than four days. I created a number of graphics, including virtual alumni badges, buttons and sharable content for former and current students to display on their own pages. Rolling out this campaign during the school’s much celebrated homecoming week proved to be a real success for the Jefferson City Public School district’s initiative.

Logo created for Capitol City Cinema, an independent, community funded cinema in Jefferson City, MO. The community funded project will bring art house style films to central Missouri, paired alongside mouthwatering offerings from Capitol City Cork.
The logo features a graphic portrayal of Jefferson City’s Capitol dome ( construction was completed in 1917- USA Today touted MO’s Capitol building as the most beautiful in all 50 states! ). The focal point of the logo features a film reel, the monochromatic scheme is a nod to the glamour of classic film, whose medium was really beginning to take a silent hold during the construction of the city’s Capitol.

I recently hosted an Urban “Camp Inn,” inviting friends to to bring camp gear, roast marshmallows, tell ghost stories and bask in the glow of a fire (created from a 1969 Sony B&W TV with footage of a real camp fire looped on the screen, and logs made from contact paper and Trader Joe’s coffee cans) all from the safety of the great indoors.
