posted by Michael Sloan
client: The New York Times / City Section
art director: Richard Weigand

As he prepares to leave his beloved Upper West Side apartment, the author of this article reflects on the parade of characters that have passed through his home over the years.

Social Security Claiming Guide
posted by Adam McCauley
client: Social Security / Boston College
art director: Ronn Campisi

This was the cover for a fun project, a new brochure produced through Boston College by Social Security.  The brochure covers all the bases for learning about how to best claim your Social Security benefits.  The illustrations (around twenty) needed to convey abstract information such as age, income level, economy, retirement, etc. in a way that was consistent and graphic.
