At one point in this site, I took a moment to apologize for being responsible for most-likely being the person who designed direct mail from DirecTV that probably wound up in your mailbox. I have to apologize yet again because I have an equally-dubious design history with Verizon Wireless. For nearly two years of my life in Los Angeles, I lived in a Verizon-colored world of “Can you hear me now?” Everywhere I looked, I saw the face of Verizon spokesperson Paul Marcarelli as I placed him in direct mail campaigns and billboards throughout the Pacific market. He served as the glue of the campaign as Verizon requested assets advertising everything from service provider contract buyouts, phone and accessory upgrades to an adorable child phone to have both voice and GPS positioning on a child. With the LA advertising market being very close-knit, I had built a reputation for understanding the Verizon brand and executing facets of their campaign. My relationship reached the point that I was requested by Verizon AEs to lead design legs of the campaign as I was contract designing with two of their advertising agencies—Campbell-Mithun and Rauxa Direct. Living and breathing this account for a couple of years, I am proud of the accomplishments during my time on these projects.
