For the second year in a row, Comcast hired me to create portraits for their national United Way campaign. This year’s poster features WMAQ Traffic Reporter Kye Martin.
If you haven’t already seen them, this video and print fundraising ad campaign is now appearing online, in print and on buses all over Chicago. Shooting an integrated marketing campaign with both videos and stills for the AIDS Foundation of Chicago gave me a great opportunity to create effective visuals that I hope will allow this charity organization to exceed their fundraising goals! It was also been another opportunity for me to work with talented graphic designer Dan Paterno.

I’m so glad that I can finally share these images with you now that the ad campaign has been released!
At the end of winter, on a day when the temperature didn’t reach 10 degrees, I needed to create an ad campaign to promote an organization that competes in summertime athletic events to raise money for charity.
