the challenge

Can you help us make this happen consistently?

American Bridge—the company who built the Empire State Building, the Sears Tower and many other iconic buildings and bridges—needed a designer who would reliably help them uphold their company’s high standards by designing their quarterly magazine. They wanted to establish continuity from issue to issue, and also have a partner who could make it easy for them. This magazine was a huge marketing vehicle, and it needed to be handled as such. When a consistent, reliable partner was called for, THD answered.

Efficiency is the name of the game

In addition to designing the magazine on an exacting-timeframe, I’ve also helped to increase efficiency and empower an internal revision process. The result? High standards—acquired consistently, with a refined process that works.
