Long time no see…

The pandemic has been hard. Full stop. (Death, illness, and isolation are not happy-making things.)

What hasn’t been difficult is working with a wonderful set of clients. We’re firing on all cylinders for a crazy-amazing group of people and organizations. Here’s just a brief taste:

HumanGood

My relationship with HumanGood is one of the most fruitful collaborations of this part of my career. We are working on all kinds of projects using all of my skills: design/art direction, marketing consulting, music, film, photography, voiceover, film producing and event producing, etc. etc. … I just returned from a quick filming trip to the Bay Area last night (photo above). So rewarding.

The Planetary Report

I love this magazine. Getting to tell — visually — the story of space exploration from a nongovernmental perspective (The Planetary Society is fully funded by memberships, like National Geographic) is sheer joy. This issue had some COVID-era complications: we couldn’t get the paper that the magazine is usually printed on. At. All. Nowhere in the world. So we had several quick phonecall meetings, made some new paper dummies, weighed it to make sure postage was not going to increase, and leaned into the pivot and printed on a new paper. I press-checked it right before leaving to film in the Bay Area this week, and it looks beautiful.

Many more stories to tell, but I’ll save those for later. If you’re looking for a communications expert who knows their way around visual marketing — print, internet, broadcast — give me a call. We have lots of energy to make magic for you as well.
