Top Secret


Another super-cool project with my pals at Scholastic. The fun challenge to this project was getting the chains the line up around the kit made up of multiple pieces! I love good template. Seriously....I LOVE a good template.

How To Host a Wine Tasting Party


How to Host a Wine Tasting Party, published by Race Point Publishing, is the next lesson in your wine education. The kit, written by Dan Amaztuzzi, is went beyond book design. This kit includes a hinged, cigar box-style case; and 80-page book; wine-tasting notepads, a wine arome wheel, a wine and cheese wheel, and bottle tags to identify wines in a blind taste test.

A true labor of love (and not just for the love of wine), the design and art direction for this project was intensive and so much fun! From the digital weathering of the wooden backgrounds to the ornate graphical flourishes throughout, it's always a delightful challenge to design around the place where rustic and formal meet.

Cheers!

ORIGAMI CHESS: CATS VS. DOGS


This special project, Origami Chess: Cats vs. Dogs, for Thunder Bay Press (by way of The Book Shop, Ltd.) is part of a trio of Origami kits published and produced in 2015. 

As the centerpiece to these kits, I designed the 112-page instruction book for every step needs to create these amazing models. The Origami Aircraft models were designed by folding master Roman Diaz. Step diagrams illustrated by Marcio Noguchi.

These hugely wonderful kids include origami paper that I had the pleasure of designing. This is an insanely fun process. Here’s how it goes. The Origami Artist will fold the models in plain white paper. Then I take the handoff. I draw the features (in this case, markings and tails and ears, and such) on the models. then…shutter….I unfold and flatten these beautiful folded works of art. This serves as my map for art placement. It ensures that, in the final folded model, ears don’t end up on the hind end of of the Siamese cat!

Each of the kits also have a special feature. Origami Chess included a fold-out PLC (double-sided) chess board. The folding projects in this kit make Chess pieces suitable for play on the board.

The kit was constructed with a magnetically closed, over-sized, multi-part cigar box case.

Noah's Ark Origami


This special project, Noah’s Ark Origami, for Thunder Bay Press (by way of The Book Shop, Ltd.) is part of a trio of Origami kits published and produced in 2015. 

As the centerpiece to these kits, I designed the 112-page instruction book for every step needs to create these amazing models. The Noah’s Ark Origami models were designed by folding master Seth Friedman. Step diagrams illustrated by Marcio Noguchi.

These hugely wonderful kids include origami paper that I had the pleasure of designing. This is an insanely fun process. Here’s how it goes. The Origami Artist will fold the models in plain white paper. Then I take the handoff. I draw the features (in this case, Noah's robe and the tortoise's shell, etc.) on the models. then…shutter….I unfold and flatten these beautiful folded works of art. This serves as my map for art placement. It ensures that, in the final folded model, Noah's face doesn't end up on his back!

Each of the kits also have a special feature. Noah’a Ark Origami included a unique, custom-designed Build-Your-Own Ark model. I had the pleasure of taking this on as a paper engineering project. After dozen’s of prototypes, I designed the components that were preprinted and provided with the kit along with folding instructions. Once, you pop the pieces out, fold them, and connect them with interlocking tabs . . . you have the perfect ark to complete the diorama.

The kit was constructed with a magnetically closed, over-sized, multi-part cigar box case.

Origami Aircraft

As the centerpiece to these kits, I designed the 112-page instruction book for every step needed to create these amazing models. The Origami Aircraft models were designed by folding masters Seth Friedman, Marc Kirschenbaum, Jason Ku, and Dan Robinson. Step diagrams illustrated by Marcio Noguchi.

These hugely wonderful kids include origami paper that I had the pleasure of designing. This is an insanely fun process. Here’s how it goes. The Origami Artist will fold the models in plain white paper. Then I take the handoff. I draw the features (in this case, windshields, rivets, plane numbers, and such) on the models. then…shutter….I unfold and flatten these beautiful folded works of art. This serves as my map for art placement. It ensures that, in the final folded model, taillights don’t end up on the side of the Cessna 150!

Each of the kits also have a special feature. Origami Aircraft included stickers as the finishing touches on the origami-folded planes. These stickers included flight numbers, windshields, plane names and more decorative elements.

The kit was constructed with a magnetically closed, over-sized, multi-part cigar box case.

This Spy Kit Will self-Destruct


This Spring (2015), I worked with Scholastic Books on this very cool project. I designed this book-in-a-box spy kit (32-page book cover and interior, casewrap and promotional sticker for in-store presence). I also illustrated a few spreads with spot art showing the spy equipment included in the kit.

This kit is truly for the young spy in training. The paperback spy manual is hidden in this decoy book for your bookshelf so no one's on to you. When the kit is purchased, it features a sticker (left) that you peel off at home revealing the "cover" of the last book anyone might be interested, protecting your spy-in-training identity.

Noah's Ark Paper Engineering


Ya didn't know I was a paper engineer, did ya?! Neither did I.

 

For this special Noah's Ark Origami kit that I designed for The Book Shop, Ltd. for Thunder Bay, my job stetched beyond the design of the kit, instruction book and folding papers. This kit required a special feature . . . a 3-dimensionsal (build-it-yourself) Ark to display with the Origami Noah, Noah's Wife and Animals . . . 2 by 2, of course.

Origami Deluxe


This Sterling Innovation Deluxe Origami kit with The book Shop, Ltd. was a blast to create. I have a feeling that the precision and planning it took to design the instructional book and the 3-drawer packaging is nothing compared to the folding of these beautiful creations.
