CROSSROADS RHODE ISLAND
Crossroads is the largest homeless services organization in the Rhode Island. They been serving the homeless since 1894 with housing, basic needs, shelter, case management, referrals, education and employment services.
Crossroads initially came to me for their 2017 Annual Report. They wanted a report with more impact than their previous annual reports and something that showcased that they were more than just a homeless shelter.
To celebrate their 125th Anniversary I helped them with an addition to their logo.

TYGER AT THE NET
Arnold Taylor’s long time dream was to publish the book he had worked on for much of his adult life. The book was written but he was unsure where to go from there. Arnold came to me to design and format the cover and inside layout. The cover image was painted by his granddaughter Aila Bally. I also handled all aspects of print- from selecting the right printer, to negotiating cost, to cover stock and paper choice. Sadly, Arnold passed away shortly after the book was printed. It was an honor and joy to help bring his dream to reality.

DIGS DESIGN COMPANY
Digs Design Company is an award winning interior design firm located in Newport, Rhode Island. Digs is run by lead designer and Principal, Jocelyn Chiappone. Jocelyn's work has appeared in numerous publications including New England Home, Coastal Living and Rhode Island Monthly. She creates spaces that bridge the classic and the modern, the vintage and the eclectic, the elegant and the savvy.
Jocelyn wanted a logo that was simple, classic, timeless and blue. We also created business cards, letterhead, signage, postcards, hangtags and stickers as well as Digs' website.
The Rhode Island Coalition for Children and Families was formed in 2015 as an agency whose mission is to promote the safety, health and success of children and youth from infancy to adulthood.
They came to me to help create their branding and messaging. For the logo they wanted to stick with the image of four people of various ages standing in a circle to represent a family and unity. The different colors and the serif font give the logo the bright, friendly feel they were looking for. We continued that look and feel for the letterhead and business cards.
I also am working with them on their website which, because they are a newer organization, will be added onto and updated regularly.
STEAM CONNECTIONS 2015
The Barrington Education Foundation is a non-profit organization of volunteers dedicated to the support and enrichment of all students within the Barrington Public Schools.
In November of 2015 they held their first STEAM event to celebrate Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM).
They came to me initially looking for a logo. They knew they wanted the logo to incorporate a bridge - something symbolic of our town. Using that concept, I turned the bridge into people reaching out and connecting as that is what the STEAM event is all about - professionals reaching out to inspire the next generation of STEAM professionals.
From the logo we went on to create banners, lawn signs, brochures, flyers, stickers, etc.
GASBARRO BUILDING & DESIGN
Gasbarro Building and Design is a local build and design firm. The client was looking for a redesign of their existing logo. Something that was modern, cool and would look good on hats, t-shirts and their truck. We also made business cards, letterhead and signage.
