Mandate when creating Art Director's position in the Office of the President was to help design, drive, and train Council members and their staff on building a new, upgraded brand.
First was the announcement of my hiring, background, and intentions,
and next was the new logo, designed within first 30 days.

Part of mandate on joining Council was to establish an in-house design studio,
which I named Council Creative Group. With interns and staff, designs were created
for print, digital and traditional signage, web banners, web design and 
large format event promotions.

Event logotype designed for full campaign, from flags to digital
signage, web banners and social media.

Designed as part of "proof of concept" samples for new direct marketing
technology and business division while Sr. Art Director at Imtek Direct Marketing.
