Wall Street Journal

This was a piece done for the WSJ, for an article on a new long-term care perk that may help defray personal costs called the CLASS Act (Community Living Assistance Services and Supports). It printed pretty small 1.75" x 2.5" - so it needed to be simple and easy to read. The turnaround was a little crazy too, and really forces you to think quickly and crank out ideas. Unfortunately some of the more conceptual sketches that were sent over first got the ax and the editor wanted something with a pile of moolah in it, which led to the final above...

materials used: pen and ink, textures, and adobe photoshop. Buy photoshop here.
