Extending an existing brand.

For baby-expectant parents, Target offers gift registries. New catalogs and marketing campaigns are developed each year. Target Creative Manager Sarah McNerney asked Deb to extend the Target bullseye campaign to Lullaby Club. Deb developed concepts, art direction, and design for a welcome kit that included a playful catalog, a rhyming welcome book, and coupons. And when Target AD Dawn Selg developed the catalog for the re-branded registry, Target Baby, Deb joined the creative team, developing concepts and art directing photography.

Simple Life is a brand concept Deb developed for a country modern line of home decor that included naming, photo style, packaging, and in-store marketing.

Concepts and art direction for home office, party, and stationery in-store marketing featured lifestyle snippets.

For a recruitment campaign aimed at college students,Target Creative Manager John Mayhew asked Deb to create concepts, art direct photography, and develop a style guide for billboards, posters, kiosks, transtops, internet banner ads, and newspaper inserts.
