eBay’s business system emulates the fun aspect of eBay. I thought of a fun family/community and decided to use illustrations by Steven Schudlich to symbolize the wacky products you can buy online. An individual of the “family illustration” is on the back of each card and changes color and icon per back. Originally, Mr. Applehead began as Mr. Potatohead but we were worried about copyright infringement but I think he works much better. After I designed this business system I would see the designs in their office marking off sections like road signs in their cubicle grid, these illustrations became part of ebay’s personality.

Almaden Valley Women’s Club is a non-profit group that stimulates interest in the social, civic, and cultural improvements for Almaden Valley California. Their fundraising efforts provide community grants and scholarships in the area. The first part of their project consisted of creating a logo out of a high school students artwork for the wine festival. Then they needed print collateral for their Art and Wine Festival in the form of a poster, advertising, bus tail signage, 4 page brochure, a website banner, beer and wine glass art. Additional requirements for the project included incorporating the oil canvas featured in the background as seen in the above poster as prominent as possible on all pieces of collateral.
Where to Eat Guide marketing kit to promote WTEG’s all encompassing tools to advertise local restaurants in select cities. WTEG’s owner use to have a very messy binder full of materials that overwhelmed his clients. Armed with a new box of these marketing kits the WTEG owner targeted Seattle as his next city for his guide and he sold out in a week.
Where to Eat Guide wanted an additional marketing tool to attract clients. Postcards were created with some brilliantly funny copy and not so subtle graphics that get the message right in the clients hands. The postcards stagger weekly in the mail to peak the clients interests.
