Below are promotional samples and infographics. Most have been designed for multiple media: print, digital and occasionally signage. Infographics are of special interest, combining the distillation of a complex subject matter, designing it in a manner that draws the eye through the composition and employing a style evocative of a historical period.

Self-promotional piece which won a Silver Award from Typographer's International Association.

Self-promotion is a great vehicle for self-indulgence. This graphic was used on printed hand-outs and T-shirts. It won a Silver Award at Typographer's International Association's annual show.

Print ads for Foreign Affairs auto repair.

Foreign Affairs sells and services mostly high-end imports. Their budget allowed only black and white print ads mostly reproduced on newsprint.

A map of Clan MacMillan's historical lands in Scotland and Ireland.

A map of Scotland illustrating Clan MacMillan's traditional homelands and landmarks. Originally sold as archival prints, this was repurposed for a display as well as an online version.

A retro-style graphic for JoJo's Retro & Vintage shop.

This promotional graphic for a vintage dress store is a take-off of the film poster for "Attack of the 50-foot Woman". The image combines a scan of a postcard, circa 1962 (the orange Ford Falcon certainly dates it), and a model photographed in period dress on a Hopkins driveway one Sunday morning.

Map of immigration routes of Scottish Highlanders and Scots-Irish.

Another map, this illustrating migrations to Pre-Revolutionary America. Much the same media applications as the Clan map above (see an enlargement). Additionally, an earlier incarnation was used by The Scotsman Magazine in an online article. This is available as an archival print.

A logo for a gathering.

A logo for the 2012 Clan MacMillan gathering. It combines the Minnesota state bird, the loon, with two Clan symbols, the claymore (two-handed broadsword) from the crest and the holly plant badge. This found its way on to print, T-shirts and other products.

A map for Scottish Highland immigration to Canada.

Scottish Highlanders made up a significant proportion of Canada's early European settlers. This map traces those migrations and their settlements with a supporting timeline. Additionally, an inset map illustrates western exploration by Highlanders and their descendants. See an enlargement. This is available as an archival print.
