Majesty Barber and Hair Studio

Fit for a King

I've worked with HB for many years now assisting his small barber business grow to include a steady array of clients. From business cards to posters, from point-of-sale or customer intake/booking software to a custom website, or even throwing in a dash of social media engagement, HB continues to explore ways to help his clients feel like royalty.

Hyattsville Community Development Corporation

A Mission of Revitalization

I am thankful that with my work as Economic Development Coordinator for the Hyattsville CDC, I can continually put my graphic design services to a public use, creating websites, maps, custom fliers, newsletters, guides, and the like. Of note are designs I've created or adapted for collaborative programs, like the Gateway Arts District promotional website, MyGatewayArts.org, and the CDC's own Downtown Hyattsville Arts Festival.

S. Rene Hoffler Real Estate

Take the Leap, Discover Your New Home

S. Rene Hoffler was 'straight to the pointe' when she shared her latest realty plans with me, after I took a class at her dance studio, Ballet Tap and All That Jazz, in downtown Hyattsville. As a realtor with Long & Foster, Rene wanted to rebrand her practice to better describe her love of dance with 'making houses move.'  

She sought a branding package inclusive of messaging (slogans, mission, values, etc.) and logo design. I am pleased to work with her to develop the 'Take the Leap' slogan and articulate her work through a logo descriptive of proper form, movement and style.

As a bonus treat at the bottom of this portfolio, see the program cover I drew for Ballet Tap and all that Jazz's “Around the World in Dance” concert.

Rankin Upholstery

Quality and Craftsmanship since 1945

Rankin Upholstery is a Gaithersburg business that's been in operation since 1945. When I met the owner, Dan Simon, he was in the process of renovating property in downtown Hyattsville, so I was more than happy to get a cup of Vigilante Coffee with him and get to work. Dan's work ethic reflects the wider Rankin family vibe, an attention to detail and a wide smile eager with imagination and finesse. He sought an ongoing branding and marketing package, including messaging (slogans, mission, values, etc.), a shop photography session, and graphic design for advertisements, posters, postcards, and logo design. Rankin regularly participate in auto/boat/air shows, regularly seek customer feedback, and are eager to share their portfolio work on their website and social media.

Lastly, surrounding my work with Rankin, I've assisted Dan with another of his companies, Apartment Keepers, in polishing a new brochure and in promoting tenants for one of his properties, called "SoHy". Check it out below at the very bottom of the sets.
