WEB CONTENT:  PTO Ideas

PTO Ideas is a site I owned for 7 years (but sold in 2013), designed, and for which I have written 99.9% of the content.  This site is a prime example of the success of content marketing.  These industry-related, informational, key-word rich tutorial articles have driven PTO Ideas to the top of search engine results for PTO fundraising and event planning – the exact market it strives to reach.

BUSINESS NAMES & TAG LINES:  SimplyPut Organizers

SimplyPut Organizers is a company name and tag line I designed for a new start-up home organization business.  This advertisement describes the services and presents this company just as the owners had intended – a group of Moms who mirror the clientele they’d like to attract.

 

PROGRAM BOOKS:  Youth Hockey

The local youth hockey organization asked me to design and layout their 70-page program book that included, a cover design, rosters, team ads, and over 50 advertisements.  The following ad is just a sample of the ads that I designed.  In this particular ad, you can see that I altered the image, cleared away the background completely, and highlighted just the image of the player.

EVENT PROMOTIONS:  Council of Social Concern

This local nonprofit chose a baseball theme for their annual auction.  I designed their program book cover, tickets, raffle tickets, and newspaper ads to resemble a baseball ticket.  Here’s a sampling…
