Texas Graphic-Design Arts & Crafts State Fair Poster The Official State of Texas Arts & Crafts Fair

The Official Texas State Arts & Crafts Fair is hosted annually every Memorial Day weekend in Kerrville, Texas. Several years ago, I had the honor to design the annual poster, new logo and write the slogan.

How else can one represent the great state of Texas than with a boot? We found a child’s boot in Cotulla, Texas and it became the still life “vase” that held the artist brushes and tools. No stock photos here. Everything was custom shot for this purpose. This poster, the slogan “The Art of Texas”  and all of the respective campaign elements went on to win eleven gold medals in state, national and international competitions.

Texas Graphic-Design Church Poster Second Baptist Church, Houston

I created this poster number of years ago for a teaching series by Dr. Ed young of Second Baptist Church, Houston. It remains among my top 10 favorite poster/sermon series covers I have ever created. To produce it, I hand-crafted a 5’ sword out of folded paper, leather, wood and plaster of Paris. Scripture for the background was created with photocopy cut-outs of old hand calligraphic type. Everything was then photographed in pieces. Those pieces were photo-combined and transferred into the design.

Second Baptist kept the real wood and paper sword under glass for a number of years. I’m not sure where it is today.

Texas Graphic-Design Movie Poster Driftwood 8 Theater

Marketing a movie starts with making the theater the star.

While I was creative director at a local ad agency, we were working on advertising and branding for a new theater from client, the Great Texas Movie Company, opening up in Marble Falls, Texas. At only 70 miles away, out here in Texas we call them neighbors. The fact that the Driftwood 8 Movie Theater opened with eight screens was an amazing venue offering when you’re over an hour from Austin. To help get that point across in the market, I twisted a strip of 35mm film into a figure eight and photographed it. I then illustrated over the photo background, adding a kind of diamond shape faintly reminiscent of the tile decor that added style to the building. No clip art or stock images here. The entire poster was a one of a kind custom photo-illustration.

Texas Graphic-Design Grand Opening Invitation Gulf Oil Chemicals

In the early 1980’s Gulf Oil Chemicals built a new Synfuids plant in Cedar Bayou, Texas and wanted to throw a party in a big way. At the time I was a young pup art director at the Houston office of the mega-million dollar Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania ad agency—Ketchum, McLeod, & Grove (later Ketchum Communications, Inc.).

Money was thrown around in those days and these guys weren’t afraid to spend it. I decided to shoot a pair of scissors cutting a ribbon. Which is a common idea. But in this case, as the ribbon is cut, the folded invitation rolls open to reveal a photo of the new plant. But this couldn’t be just any pair of scissors. This one was a gold plated set, with a nifty, matching letter opener. And it came complete with a Gulf Oil branded leather case. I designed it such that a hand-full of real scissors went out in boxes. For those the VIP types they really wanted to come. The set slipped into the fingers of the hand in a die-cut invitation. For the masses, I configured the design so that just the paper invitation went out in a standard number 12 business envelope. Oh, and I must give credit to my lifelong photographer buddy-Frank White in Houston for throwing his genius into a single pair of scissors held in one man’s hand.

This small design hung in the New York Art Director’s Club show for that year. Imagine what Lamb Creek Creative Services can do for your company.
