New Publication: Fall Home & Garden 2008

The new edition of Patuxent Publishing Company's Home & Garden is out. The Spring Edition which I also designed was a lot more conservative. In the same tradition as that issue, it's very colorful, fun and literal. I did custom illustrations for the pages and was even allowed to do a full illustrative cover, possibly the first in the publication's history.


Fall Home & Garden Cover


"Front Porch" is the feature story by our staff writer. The design has a kind of free element along with the necessary product shots that go along with the text. The inside pages adopted the character of the cover illustration into the editorial space.

"Lawn & Order"



"Fall for Flavor", a story about window herb gardens with a fun and literal interpretation of the text.



"Clean Sweep", about proper fireplace care.


Fall Home & Garden is a supplement to the Howard County Times, Columbia Flier, Catonsville Times, Arbutus Times and Laurel Leader.

Portfolio: Back to School Designs

Uploaded my lastest designs, this time they're of the Back to School publication. It's a newspaper insert to several Maryland newspapers in association with Maryland Family which is produced by the same company and department as where I work, Patuxent Publishing. There were several original illustrations created as well as stock and submitted photos. The final designs were done in InDesign CS.
