Last week I whipped up a little identity starter kit for my friend, Christian McDaniel, a talent dynamo and super nice guy whose dream in life is to develop wonderful entertainment and creative activities for kids. For his web site, we decided to go with a banner design that can feature changing themes and various kid created coolness in the ink-blot blurb area. (I used my beloved blob brush to draw the logo in Illustrator, and drew the mocked in kid-drawn images with the pencil tool in InDesign.)

Christian McDaniel Business Card by Marla GoodmanChristian wanted his business card to be a tip of the hat to one of his personal heroes. I won’t mention the person’s name, but if you recognize the reference, Christian will be delighted.

When he’s not laying foundations for his kid-centric production studio or working on his children’s book, Christian is recording cartoon voice-overs and writing/performing in improv, sketch comedy, radio dramas, puppet theatre and children’s theatre. He was hilariously convincing as Fudge in the Equinox Theatre Company’s matinee of “Tales of a 4th Grade Nothing.”

Yet he still finds time to drive a fork lift and play video games. Now that’s my kind of client!
