Logos & Marks

Identity development is my strength and favorite form of visual communication. I enjoy the process
of giving birth to new ideas and crafting a visual brand. The companies represented through these
identities are varied in scope, each with its own culture and personality. I have my favorites;
some for the small accomplishments and some for making a difference.


Reed Hilderbrand

identity development : rebranding

The new logotype had to represent the firm’s new leadership structure and collaborative culture.
Conceptually, it still needed to reflect their 20th century modern aesthetic. Physically, it needed to
present as one unit but be flexible enough to work in a variety of spaces. After a thoughtful
discovery process, detailed typographic and color studies, the new identity emerged.

I continue to utilize the skills I acquired during my experience in editorial design working with
photographers, illustrators, writers, reporters and editors. I learned how to interpret the written word
into consistent typographic systems and visually communicate a plethora of stories and ideas.


The Boston Globe

them with the tools to compete at a higher level in this new arena. The concept design
for the website organizes their work with a custom sorting function.

The goal of this website redesign was to overcome a perception that the firm did not build
contemporary projects. The site had to present a breadth of the firm’s design experience and

at the time. The lead typeface in their typographic family, Bodoni, required a multi-pronged
web font solution to ensure cross-browser display font integrity.

red and blue in the color family, each having assigned tasks.

“Visual communications of any kind, whether persuasive or informative,
from billboards to birth announcements, should be seen as the embodiment
of form and function: the integration of the beautiful and the useful.”

– Paul Rand, Thoughts on Design

Infographics 1

My interest in simplifying complicated concepts, ideas and data into visual form began
in my early days as an Editorial Designer at The Boston Globe. I’ve had the experience of
designing infographics for a variety of subjects in the areas of business, arts, health,
science, and sports. Most recently, I’ve been working with financial institutions and
pharmaceutical companies to help visually communicate their complex stories.

Infographics 2

After years of infographic design work, I’ve learned a little bit about a lot of things.
I’ve sorted through many complex issues, lots of data, and important concepts to
present them in an engaging and informative way. My priority has always been
to develop a consistent “visual narrative” that is easily understood and
helps further communicate the written word.
