The Quaker Redrawn

November 29, 2011

Logo Illustration

Working with a talented agency in Seattle, i created some new 1 and 2 color interpretations of ‘the Quaker’ for Quaker Oats. Not sure this one will see the light of day, but a very interesting excercise in the subtleties of branding. Getting to work on an iconic piece of advertising history was a coup for me.

Poster & Collateral Design

Have i really been doing the poster and invite for the past 8 years? yup, and i have enjoyed every year.

On this 20th anniversary my aim was to create a refined and rich look, employing custom typography and illustration using limited, but BOLD color. The background pattern and table setting were my favorite elements. O’Neil printing did a bang-up job with a rich double-hit black and spot varnishes.
