Barter Theatre celebrated its’ 80th anniversary year by creating a series of flat, illustrative posters for the 2012 season under the creative direction of Nathan Wampler. My contribution to the project included “Good Ol’ Girls,” a southern musical and “I’ll Never Be Hungry Again,” a musical spoof of “Gone With the Wind.” This was the first Barter Theatre season release to be featured in the William King Museum. The project was featured in the Bristol Herald Courier, and along with Coburn Creative we received a silver Addy in 2013 for this campaign.
Raymond W. McLain is a world-touring artist from the folk music mecca Hindman, KY. A collaborative effort, we wished to create a brand representative of his virtuosic skill and world-class talent.

Part of the Arts Array Spencer-Miller Memorial Concert Series, the McLain Family Band took the stage in Abingdon, VA. The appalachian band has made 14 international tours under the sponsorship of the US State Department, played concerts at the Grand Ole Opry, and appeared at Carnegie Hall and at the Lincoln Center.
“Tidings of Comfort and Jazz” came about when Steve Sensenig, a touring pianist, came to Barter Theatre in Abingdon, VA in 2012. The typography is playful and improvised, evocative of Jazz music.

I produced a 15 video series for Barter Theatre’s 2012 summer run of the Broadway hit “Avenue Q.” These videos were shown during the show, projected on a screen in the middle of the set. These videos served as visual aid, subtext and scene transitions. This is the introductory cartoon that welcomed the audience into the production. The overall look and feel was meant to mimic low tech, old educational cartoons like School House Rock and Sesame Street.
The scope of the project included: cartoons made in Illustrator & Photoshop, animation in After Effects, cuts of live footage from Premiere, & selective color keying using Keylight.
CREDITS: This video series was made under the Direction of Katy Brown, with The Musical Direction of Steve Sensenig, the sound engineering of Miles Polaski and features the Puppeteering of Nick Koesters.
