For the past 10 years I have been designing the Ripps family
holiday cards featuring their children. This is the birth
announcement for their eldest Max...
And this is the birth announcement for their
second child Oliver.
The first holiday card featuring the two boys.
All the photography is by their dad, Robert A. Ripps.
It's great to have the opportunity to play with the typography every year.
Last years. The kids are growing up...
This years card.
Two series of PDF covers for downloadable studies and papers, GLAAD Center for the
Study of Media & Society.
I designed fairly strict formats
for both series.
These four covers are studies.
With the exception of the stock photo above, all the images and art in both series were created in-house.
First of the covers for the papers.
At full scale the image of Green Lantern is much less discernable, which was the idea.
The bands of wood grain echo a wooden fence, a reference to how Shepard died.
We couldn't show the Sims, but we
found a way around that.
