Since most of us won’t be lucky enough to win the Powerball Jackpot, we need to plan for retirement. I designed these retirement guides for a branch office of Voya to present to their customers in the Arlington government.

It was a lot of fun designing a variety of materials for my son Justin’s nuptials. It also gave Renee a chance to pull out her watercolor brushes again.

Not all of these tributes to movie posters of the past are successful, but overall I think they did a great job. I always get a kick out of trying to replicate a genre from the history of graphic design and it looks like the designers here were enjoying themselves as well.
