Julia Robins, is a well respected real estate agent at Century 21: Albertson Realty located in Greenport, New York. She is also a local government official having served on the board of trustees for the Village of Greenport for nearly 4 years.
She needed a campaign to differentiate herself within a saturated real estate market out on the East End of Long Island. Having been a carpenter building and renovating homes on the North Fork- it was clear what the message needed to be. The preferred method was mailings- so I designed a series of postcards that spoke to her professionalism & trustworthiness. The photographs I took are at several of my favorite spots in Greenport & Southold.
Her website will be live in the coming month - so if you're in the market for real estate on the North Fork of Long Island and you're reading this - do the right thing ;)

Samsung developed custom flat screen TV's which can be bought as live art canvases for the design in home or office.
They needed a creative exploratory for their in-house marketing team for social media + digital ad buys. We landed on these, letting the art speak for itself while driving home the functionality of the product/service.
