George Oppen

A Narrative by Author Eric Hoffman

Author and poet Eric Hoffman is a longtime creative collaborator, friend and client who has written extensively on George Oppen for well over a decade. The release of this book is a proud and celebrated moment, so I was honored when he asked me to design the cover of George Oppen — A Narrative. The key feature in this design is the transparent band that seamlessly wraps the cover, spine, and back cover, highlighting the book title, byline, and pull quote through careful placement and a little luck.

Land formations unique to Theodore Roosevelt National Park in Medora, North Dakota where the Bakken shale is located, now the second largest area to produce oil in the US. Project goal is to increasing public knowledge about protected areas and national parks with private interest encroachment. More illustration.

Bunch & Bundle

Food With a Story

Bunch & Bundle is a brand with a mission: to change the way we think about buying food. The idea is simple, make the story of our food transparent, including where it comes from and its harvest date. 'Bunches' of people opt in to buy food that might not otherwise be available (for example, there are over 500 varieties of bananas, but we only have access to 1 in the US), and farmers have a better idea which items consumers want. The brand has started taking shape through strategy, name ideation, and logo design. Nabeel and I continue to work together to develop brand and identity.
