Over the summer I began a brand new project with my dear friend Melanie Piana. Melanie is running for city council in Ferndale, Michigan. This has been my first opportunity to work with campaign graphics and materials. It’s harder than you might imagine!

At the start of the project, like any designer, I had all kinds of ideas about how to present something different and innovative for Mel’s campaign. As you get into this kind of work there are a lot of parameters to consider and you really have to shoot for the middle in order to appealing to a candidate’s potential constituency. Ferndale is a broad mix of demographics let me tell you.

Naturally Mel had her own ideas about how her campaign was to look and I think we’ve collaborated beautifully, creating a look and feel that is both vibrant and appropriate. I’m anxious to see how my first time out in this particular design world stacks up against her competitors.

Learn more about Melanie’s campaign at her web site or on her Facebook page. And if you’re Ferndale resident get out and vote, November 3, 2009!
