i’m technically an art director, but i really hate to stop there. my real love is typography and design. i also believe that the writing is as important as anything else when it comes to a concept being as great as it can be. so i like to say this to anyone viewing my work: please read the copy. I’ve been fortunate to have worked with some of the best writers out there, and it’s truly the combination of their craft and mine that makes these ads (and design pieces) as beautiful as they are. also a word of caution to the sensitive: be aware that some of my work is a bit racy. i try to make “appropriate” work. and that just means that if the subject matter warrants hard hitting (and sometimes “hard to look at”) imagery, i cater to that sentiment. it’s my way of creating factual, honest and sobering pieces of communication. at any rate,  i appreciate you visiting and spending a few minutes with the things i’ve made. – rob
