For the first anniversary of 911, I took a "moment of silence" approach. Paying tribute to the victims of that fateful day, whose names appear on the background behind the rose. They were strategically placed so no names would be covered. This was the first time ever, that the front page of the Boston Herald ran without a headline.
"Once again you made the Herald shine. The calls complementing the Herald on its front page, as you know, have been astounding and entirely due to your creativity and for that I'm especially grateful."
– Excerpt from BH publisher Pat Purcell's note to me, the afternoon of September 11, 2002
911 ten year anniversary for Page One.
Niche quarterly magazine for upscale lifestyle.
Arts&Entertainment pullout cover and cover story page.
I designed and executed "Champions." A special sports publication destined to pay tribute to the local team that would bring home the "big title." It would celebrate the winning moment and the entire journey during the season. A way to keep the memories alive. Hitting the newsstands the date after the final game.
Before executing this layout, I art directed this concept of mine, on location at the rooftop pool of The Colonnade Hotel in Boston. An unexpected way to display swimwear. New solutions to old "problems."
A fun and informative, full color bleed preview of the 2017 Patriots, expecting great things for the season.

I created some publications, from conception to completion, during my time at the Boston Herald.
A niche lifestyle magazine with a target audience of young female professionals ... with that "attitude."
