My friends Scott and Ally from Hortus Conclusus called to let me know that they needed an update on their logo. Hortus Conclusus is now called Hortus Arboretum & Botanical Gardens and in addition, they need a logo for the landscape business.

Since they liked the second runner-up from the original presentation for the “Hortus Conclusus” about two years back I was happy to oblige.


Digital New Years Card 2019

I’ve created this digital New Years card in Illustrator, the (gif) animation was done in Photoshop. The Instagram version is a video with sound that was added in Videoshop. Oh, the tools we have! Make it a fun productive year.




Earlier this year I participated in a logo design contest called “A New Image for Pinocchio” unfortunately for me I didn’t do as well with my logo presentation as I had hoped. It turns out this is a clear case that simple is not always better, or is it?  To see the winning design solution click the link here and judge for yourself. Congrats to the winner.


I’ve got this photo in the mail today. My coaster design for “LE PERCHE” a French / American restaurant located in the lovely city of Hudson. It looks like I have to go there and raise a glass.
