Sunbird Gallery & Framing
One of Bend's finest artists and art directors early in this century was Pamela Trow Johnson and she asked for my help in creating a print campaign for her friends Steve & Sandra Miller who owned a prominent gallery downtown with a framing shop upstairs. For magazine ads, we came up with a visually striking way to show off the diversity of their frames and used the headlines to highlight the quality and care of Steve's custom work. For the newspaper, we went with heavy frequency and produced a total of eight small-space B&W ads, and they let me run rampant with some artsy-fartsy wordplay. My artistic mom would've been proud.
