A Month in the Life of a Graphic Designer

Graphic Design of Jacksonville, FL

There is a certain speed and quantity of work at the Law Office of JMP that keep it challenging and interesting. While I wear many hats here, this last month was all about graphic design. I worked on a magazine ad for Folio Weekly and Void, party collateral, re-branding of the letterhead and business cards, place-mat ads for the Metro Diner, a sponsorship ad for Jacksonville’s Armada Football team and it’s all topped off with a rush job/first time three-fold printed newsletter. And, I’m certain I forgot a few. Phewy! Put a fork in me…I’m done!!


Folio Magazine Ad: This issue was dedicated to Art and Design, so I asked John if I could design an out of the box ad. Keeping Folio readers in mind, I wanted it to be hip and modern for the out and about crowd of Jacksonville while also creating that connection to John. I used great colors, a stylize picture and a great quote John, a list of his practice areas and of course contact information.

Metro Diner Place Mat Ad: In tight spaces you have to keep it simple and direct, a a photo of smiling faces always pulls your reader in.

Party Collateral: Coozies and Magnets for special event were a rush job so I’m not crazy about the design I created but it works when you are given a couple of hours. Sometimes completed design is more important than perfect design that doesn’t make deadline.

Custom Designed Business Cards: In my early days with the firm, I rebranded it with a new logo and brand guidelines. Eventually, folders, signs and business cards became an extension of that brand design creating consistency and brand recognition.
