Community College of Aurora, CO came to me to create and appealing design for a mailer with a predefined form factor. They provided photos, copy, and the school colors and logos. It needed to appeal to the client and ultimately the donors being solicited.


  • Limited guidelines provided

  • No other predefined visual branding motifs

  • Create a mailer that appeals visually to the recipients and communicates the message effectively


  • Researched similar mailers for other academic institutions

  • Ideated and created a few mockups

  • Received feedback and created final version

The final piece was folded with overlapping elements. As the recipient interacts with the mailer other elements reveal themselves for a continued conversation.
