I have worked on many logos and brands over the years. The most creative freedom I found in logo design was working on Broadway Shows. Most shows would take up to a year to create the initial posters so there was plenty of time to explore logo and type.
I have created( alone and with a team) all kinds of advertisements from dance clubs to Broadway reviews of opening night. I have also produced ads(TechnoMarine and Bell & Ross) that were already created by the company but must be built to the specification of the magazine.
Many of the posters I worked on we started from just a sketch. After approval we worked with illustrator(s) photographers or created the final art ourselves.
I have created many direct mail pieces from golf shoes to Chris Blackwell’s Island Outpost and Broadway.
