Dr. John Marks and his father, Dr. Gerald Marks, enjoy international acclaim in the field of colorectal surgery. The latter Dr. Marks is also an accomplished and admired water colorist. When it came time to design the new website for their world-renowned practice -- and inspired by his skill with a paintbrush -- SONDER & chose Gerald Marks watercolors as the graphic theme. http://www.markscolorectal.com

After a cross-country shooting odyssey that began in Reading, PA and ended in Los Angeles, a new 6-minute film I directed for Penske's Worldwide Meeting debuted at The Phoenician Hotel in Scottsdale, AZ on February 20th. The piece was produced by Monogram in Philadelphia and captures the essence of the company's values, pride and work ethic in Penske Associates' own words.

Seymour Chwast's New York Times column about logo designs for the "Occupy Wall Street" movement inspired me to try my hand at designing a symbol. That's how uninspired I was by the featured designs. Can my logo become THE symbol of "The new American revolution?" Sure going to try and make it happen.

I've recently developed a stem to stern branding package for a new, ingenious, patented minimal wallet. MiniMax will put an end to overstuffed wallets and cheesy rubber bands forever. From the name and tagline -- The minimal wallet with maximum capacity -- to the logo, web site, animated 3D video and sales materials, HOT Productions was there. Can Brookstone, Macy's and the rest be far behind?
From the logo and brand positioning statement-- "Why Philly sandwiches are world-famous." -- to the delivery trucks. From the fresh, new look of the advertising and trade show booth to the in-progress web site redesign. SONDER & is in the process of completely overhauling Amoroso's brand as the iconic Philadelphia bakery takes the national stage. With its burgeoning frozen capabilities and expanding presence in the food service industry. Amoroso's is now a recognized brand coast-to-coast. No, make that an international brand with sales to steak shops, supermarkets, stadiums, grocery stores and corporations in all 50 states, as well as Bermuda, Canada, Dominican Republic, the Philippines, Guam and Puerto Rico. Please excuse me but I just can't help myself ... We're really on a roll!

. Norman Carpet One wanted a billboard promoting the carpet retailer's penchant for saving customers money. Through the magic of Photoshop, Benjamin Franklin's iconic portrait on the $100 bill was transformed into a comic "Norman the Floorman." And a memorable, hard-selling billboard became money in the bank.

The music videos and award pieces I directed for Penske Truck Leasing brought the crowd to its feet and helped launch a thrilling kickoff for the company at their annual meeting held Feb. 21--23 in Scottsdale, AZ. Working with Jim Feenstra, Penske's Senior VP Marketing and Don Metcalf, Director of Product Marketing, the videos were produced through NFL Films and shown on a huge 24 ft. LED screen to an audience of nearly 1500, including company founder and racing legend Roger Penske. The event opened with a live performance by Nikki Yanofsky singing "I Believe," the song she performed at the opening ceremony of the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. The screen was filled with dramatic black & white still photographs of Penske employees captured during a two-week, cross-country odyssey to 7 of Penske's major facilities. Ken Kauffman was the still photographer, George Pilhuj handled editing, Michael Ventresca was the AE and Marie Patriarca produced for NFL Films.

It was time to write the Pennsylvania Lottery's first TV campaign and I decided to demo a spot, save some money and use myself as on-air talent. The Lottery Director said he couldn't have cast a better street hustler himself and insisted my acting debut appear on-air, along with four additional spots.
