Chopper the Hippo

The hippo I helped design was name Chopper. I find it to be a very appropriate name...

Share a Coke

I've been wanting to write and post so much new content, but life and work have been busy. I did want to comment on what an awesome branding job Coke did with their new "Share a Coke" campaign. I have seen so much free advertising and publicity from the news to social media.

No matter what name was on the can/bottle, people were going to drink it. However, people are searching out/creating their own Coke bottle names, and if they find one I bet they'll post it to Facebook or tell a friend.

Well done!

Top Pizza Restaurants 2014

Top Pizza Restaurants 2014

Journalist and Food Connoisseur, Scott Schroeder traveled the United States in search of the best pizza restaurants. After trying over 100 of the best independent and chain pizza restaurants each city had to offer, Schroeder had the difficult task of narrowing his selections to three.

The award goes to...

1. Cici's Pizza
A vibrant atmosphere, great selections, and all you can eat for cheap makes this restaurant a people watcher paradise. Cici's left a lasting impression on Mr. Schroeder's colon. "Cici you later."

2. Little Caesar's
Little Caesar's has someone else's pizza waiting for you long before you arrive, and only makes you pay $5.00 for it. Mr. Schroeder commented, "Pizza. Pizza."

3. Domino's Pizza
Mr. Schroeder came across a quaint, little restaurant nestled in a fast-moving city. He had stumbled upon a Domino's Pizza, known for making one of the highest quality pizzas in the world. When Mr. Schroeder spoke to the CEO, he said that the pizza he used to sell his customer's sucked, so they decided to revamp it into this award-winning formula.

So, next time you are out traveling, look for one of Mr. Schroeder's award-winning pizza restaurants near you!

Rolling Stone's Intentional Mistake

Rolling Stone's Intentional Mistake

Although it is old news now...working in/with Design, PR and Marketing for as long as I have, you have to assume this Rolling Stone magazine mistake was intentional. A large amount of professional proofreaders, photographers, editors, and designers would have seen this, and somebody would have known this was incorrect before going to print.

If "John Hancock" wasn't "mistakenly" put on her back tattoo, this cover would have been ordinary, and easily ignored; however, the mistake made it talked about for weeks.

You can't believe everything the media feeds you...

Wine Header

Wine Header

Designed, and have been printing/producing a number of these wine headers for retail.

Tick in a Jar

Tick in a Jar

Pretty gross. I guess this is what I get for taking the dog out in the woods for 8 hours. Removed this "sucker" from the back of her neck, and threw it in some alcohol.
