Big Book of Central (For Mobile Exhibition)

BigBook WebsiteTo start the African American Museum’s mobile exhibiting, I designed and produced (photo-copied pages for) The Big Book of Central.

The All-Yearbook boasts one page from every Central High School Yearbook, from 1922-1971.

Central was the first Fort Wayne high school; the book is kicking off our coverage of the history of education in the city.

 

 

Mini Mobile Display

Working on a series of mobile display panels for the African/African American Historical Society Museum. I designed and am presently building the mobile displays for my Central event. But the museum will also use them for their Museum on Wheels program. This is the MINI.

The content pages are held up with magnets (bottom left pic).

Folding Wing Aircraft – Folding Paper Airplane

Airplane

As a co-production with the African American Museum here in town, I conceived/designed this paper airplane that tells the story of Hermon Grimes Sr., the inventor the the folding wing aircraft design that helped win World War II by shortening the war and savings lives.

With every fold, more of Grimes’ story is told. We plan on incorporating this into our MADE History Comic/Aeronautics for kids program.

MugPacketForSite

I designed an information packet for my Central High All-Decade Coffee Mug, for when we sell them to outside gift shops. Currently, they can be purchased at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art and Visit Fort Wayne, in addition to their gift shop of origin at the African American Museum.

Center for Nonviolence Poster

Jason 2

The first in a series of anti-violence posters designed pro-bono for the Center For Nonviolence, here in Fort Wayne. I photographed the volunteers separately, and collaborated with the center’s marketing department on the copy.

BBall Play-by-Play Recreation

PlayByPlay

For my 2015 Central High All-Year Reunion. It’s a play-by-play recreation of an old basketball game that was recorded without sound. With the help of Ray Thompson, the 6th man of the bench for Central, we are reconstructing the game. 21 Alive’s Kent Hormann provided the play-by-play off a script I wrote and his improv from watching the game.

I had Kent do 2 passes: a color commentary (general) version and the play-by-play summary with the players’ names. The specific version is based on the play-by-play that Ray Thompson, the 6th man off the bench for Central, provided as we watched the game together.

I combined the 2 to make one audio track and applied that to the video. Currently working on the DVD duplication of the game (with interviews from 2 Central players).
