The Tides

A lot of my work is done for The Franklin Center of Public Integrity. Franklin Center for Government and Public Integrity was founded in 2009 to address falling standards in the media as well as a steep falloff in reporting on state government and provides professional training; research, editorial, multimedia and technical support; and assistance with marketing and promoting the work of a nationwide network of nonprofit reporters.  Supplementing these efforts is their newly launched Citizen Watchdog program that trains ordinary citizens to report from local communities.

My role is to take their reporting/training and give it some visual appeal. I will be posting a lot of older work along with everything that is new. The tides is an infographic giving a visual representations of information to present complex information quickly and clearly.

This one is the “dark version”. Which version do you like? Leave a comment below or on Facebook.

And just to show another option, I did this one with the regular ocean colors.

WIN Cycling

With the launch of WIN Cycling by WORS, I was given the opportunity to do some graphic design work for them. Don reached out, asking if I would be able to help out the organization that will help grow cycling in high schools and I was very pleased to do so.  Here is a link to the press release from WORS on their new logo that Justin Piontek Graphic Design created.

I was asked to keep the logo similar to the current WORS logo but at the same time make it something that will stand alone as its own entity. For those of you who aren’t familiar with WORS you can visit there site here to see their logo. When I think of  the WORS logo, I think of the little guy on his bike and the state of Wisconsin. Wisconsin didn’t make the cut to the final logo but the little man did (with some minor tweaks).

Stay tuned for more of my design work for WIN Cycling.

P.S. I plan to do this blogging a lot more often with updates related to design (mainly my own work, but will post inspiration as well) along with all of my biking adventures.
