New Hampshire Creative Club






The New Hampshire Creative Club is an organization of creative professionals such as graphic designers, photographers and illustrators. Every year they sponsor the "Academy Awards" of New Hampshire creative types–the NH Creative Club Annual Exhibition. This year, I was invited to design the call for entrees brochure. I was happy to oblige–an opportunity to get my work in front of colleagues around the state plus the NHCC gave me free reign.

The NHCC logo features a person having a eureka moment. Staring at the logo I thought of the statues on Easter Island. The idea of bringing the logo to life tickled me–and it would fun to illustrate. The fact NH is the granite state–well, that was just gravy.

Once Jim Roland (NHCC member) assured me that no one had done an Easter Island theme I started brainstorming headlines. "Don't just stand there" and "It's time to show the world what you're made of" seemed clever enough. I'm particularly fond of the bunny.

FYI–The final brochure was a tri-fold, 6x9.
