Machens Advantage Magazine (Spring 2016)

Machens Advantage Magazine (Spring 2016)

Machens Advantage Magazine Spring 2016 Issue Print Design, Video, Social Media, Marketing Quarterly Publication Our goal for this issue of the Joe Machens Dealerships’ Machens Advantage Magazine was to create new types of engaging content and to create a piece that would have more longevity since the magazine was converted to a quarterly piece (from monthly). You can view the publication in its entirety (and some archives) on Issuu here or below. Team Effort I worked with Jeff Ausmus, Marketing Manager, and Mark Loeber, Junior Designer, on the issue. I designed the cover, infographic and Rental ads for this issue, created a template for the Regular Joe ad and art directed all the other ads. I also had the pleasure of doing some food styling for the recipe photo taken by CBT photographer Keith Borgmeyer. I also shot and edited the Pros on the Go videos for Cumulus radio personalities Chris Kellogg, Damon Knight and Mo Louis.   Gallery Click on a preview below to view full image.

Adventure Invitations

Adventure Invitations

Adventure Invitations Print Design, Special Event Every party needs a theme! For our daughter’s birthday and our house-warming party we decided to do an Adventure theme. I found some great ideas on Pinterest (see board here) and decided to use them as inspiration to create a one-of-a-kind invite to send to friends and family. The design is 4.25″ x 11″ and folded to be 4.25 x 5.5 inches to fit into a standard size envelope. I printed them 2 up on 32lb. paper without bleed to save a little cash. They turned out nicely and I’m so excited for our guests to receive them!  Throw a Party!   Custom invitations make your party even cooler. Get...
