JDI Brochure for the Current Generation

As the Creative Director for the Long Range Planning Committee (of Job’s Daughters International), it was my job to not only recognize the creative and marketing needs of Job’s Daughters International, but to address those needs with viable and beautiful solutions.

One of the most important tasks LRP took on was a new brochure, as there had not been a new one in nearly two decades! With declining membership, it was imperative that the organization invest in some new brochures to attract a fresh generation of members. (Because the organization is for girls ages 10 to 20, external promotion and marketing should always be a top priority. However, limited finances have often held the organization back in this regard.)

In the process of determining that a new brochure needed to be created, several ideas where offered. Brochures for young girls, brochures for older girls, brochures for parents, brochures for our organizations own alumnae, brochures for businesses. Huge beautiful brochures that were 12″ × 12″ folders full of goodies. A brochure that could be customized at the local or state level.

Certainly the ideas were lovely, but financial limitations at all levels of the organization proved that such ideas would have been cost-prohibitive. A 12″ square folder would have cost a ridiculous amount of money to mail. Full-color booklet brochures that could be customized, and only a few dozen printed for a small chapter? Never going to happen. A half-dozen brochures with language tailored to the reader was nice in concept, but how often were you going to be able to grab the exact one you needed in the moment? (Six custom one-pagers were created for this process, but they were designed to fit on a single letter-size piece of paper, and an individual chapter could easily print them out as needed (with custom contact information included).

In addition, recent insurance requirements demanded that the organization have media release forms for all individuals who were used in any promotional materials. Lots of the photos that we had on file were off-limits. (Which wasn’t a real loss—the photos were hopelessly dated anyway.) A photo shoot was in order, and I ensured that we included real members, of all walks of life, all races, all shapes and sizes. True diversity to represent our international organization.

The pink text is placeholder text and will only appear if there is actual text to include. Otherwise, the area is left blank for a less expensive custom option, such as a label.With all that in mind, I came up with an excellent product. The final brochure includes the following:

  1. The brochure layout has two covers (to illustrate the many activities the organization offers), and thanks to a tent-design, can stand up easily to be more eye-catching.
  2. The brochure fits in a standard #10 envelope so that no extra postage would be required.
  3. The brochure’s language caters to both girls (fun, friendship, activities) and parents (poise, philanthropy, scholarships), and is a manageable length.
  4. The brochure’s photos feature a diverse array of members from all over the nation doing all sorts of things.
  5. The brochure can be customized via data merge fields on the covers (shown above with the <<Jurisdiction>> text), as well as on the center Contact Us page, and custom versions can be printed at no additional cost, when the total (bulk) order is placed. The brochure can also stand alone without the custom text, and still look striking.
  6. The brochure is affordable to print, even in full color, per quotes that I received from multiple vendors. This is especially important given the custom option—something that a small chapter could never afford without the benefit of bulk pricing.





Fastline Performance Branding

business_card A local powersports shop was in need of some proper branding. The owner had attempted to design his own logo using WordArt in Microsoft Word, and other basic programs, but realized that his multiple attempts were, as he put it, “awful.” After relocating to a new space (and he needed new business cards anyway), he decided it was finally time to start fresh and get a proper brand. This would include a new logo, business cards, work shirts, rugs, bumper stickers, and a website, just to name a few!

He wanted a logo that implied speed but was legible, especially on a moving vehicle (which could be his business truck, trailer, a motorcycle, ATV, UTV, or snowmobile).

Using Illustrator, and some inspiration from logos that he did like, I designed the above logo. Once that was in place, we started ordering all the swag. The business cards, the bumper stickers, the car decals, the patches, the hats, the rugs, the etched glass door.

The final element was a new internet presence (including a new URL). I set up and got the owner started using social media to increase awareness of his shop (via Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram). Being non-techy, this was very helpful for him, as he could easily take before/after photos with his basic smartphone, and share them with his followers, and get lots of likes and shares. In addition, I created an edgy responsive website (using WordPress), so that he will be able to update it from time to time.

fastlineperformance_computerThe website is coming along, but is still under construction. The owner, Adam, realized that although a slick website was wonderful, the social media presence was even more important, and so he has focused most of his time there. Hopefully we’ll get most of the website’s pages populated soon! But in the meantime, you can’t argue with the power of social media, especially when it comes to maintenance and repairs on your most precious toys.

Video Production and Editing

Stik Pocket Promotional Fundraiser


I have worked with Job’s Daughters International in a creative role since 2003. In 2011 I was invited to join the Long Range Planning Committee to help the organization as a whole determine what its long range goals were, and to achieve them. One of the Long Range Planning (LRP) committee’s tasks was to revamp our branding, and appeal to a new generation of girls. An additional goal was to assist the Board of Trustees with determining an appropriate revenue stream for the organization via fundraising. As the organization is often compared to Girl Scouts, it was our mission to “find our cookie,” so to speak.


To promote Job’s Daughters International’s new brand among our target audience (10-20 year old girls) while simultaneously raising funds for JDI.

The Product

StikPockets are vinyl stickers that attach to the back of any smartphone or case, turning your phone into a wallet. They can be customized with a logo and sold or handed out for promotional purposes.

My Contributions

I found the product via social media in June 2013, and worked directly with the owner/inventor Brian Owen to get all necessary information. I also negotiated a price point that would be mutually beneficial so that we could raise much-needed funds, and Mr. Owen could get important client feedback for the fundraising branch of his business.

I designed four Stik Pocket designs (two for the initial launch, two for a follow-up fundraiser).

I did market research and data analysis to determine the appropriate number of Stik Pockets to order, how many of each (black and white), and multiple price points (two retail, two wholesale) to ensure healthy profit margins for the organization.

I wrote a proposal outlining all details of the promotion, costs, and projected profits. (Submitted June 24, 2013.)

I secured a booth so that the Long Range Planning Committee could sell Stik Pockets at the organization’s annual conference (“Supreme Session”) in Oakland, California.

I wrote a press release and sent it out prior to Supreme Session to get people excited, and come prepared to buy our product (or buy a bundle and bring it back to sell locally).

I created fundraiser bundles, including a pricing chart, incentive ideas, feedback request, and a tracking form.


The Long Range Planning Committee came to JDI’s Supreme Session (i.e., annual conference, July 22-27, 2013) with 1,000 Stik Pockets. In two and a half days of sales (about 16 hours total), we sold out of all 1,000 Stik Pockets. Our final gross profit margin: 88%. The fundraiser raised nearly twice as many funds as the next two top-grossing fundraisers combined.

In August of 2010, the U.S. Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission released new Horizontal Merger Guidelines. However, they only issued the Guidelines online via HTML and PDF. Realizing people within the industry might want to access the guidelines via alternate methods, Bates White set forth to fill in those gaps. In the Spring of 2011 I created both a print version of the guidelines that was used as a promotional handout, as well as an ebook version that could be accessed through all major e-readers, including Kindle (.mobi file), and Nook, iPad, Kobu, and Sony eReader (.epub file).
