Design Work: Documentary films

Design of one sheets, business cards, press kits, DVD packaging, and website and social media banners for independent documentary films. Scanning of historical photographs and photographing of various elements and models for inclusion in the design.


One sheet design and photography for Bravo! Common Men, Uncommon Valor, a documentary film about the 77-day siege of Khe Sanh during the Vietnam War. The story of the siege is told by 15 members of Bravo Company, 1st Battalion, 26th Marine Regiment who were there. From the Director's Statement: "The movie captures history. It is a study in PTSD and psychology. It is a memoir of war. It is poetic, like rhythmic verse. It speaks on multiple levels in multiple voices, funny, sad, loud and profound, it's one hell of a story."​​​​​​​

Bravo! Common Men, Uncommon Valor, directed by Ken Rodgers, edited by John Nutt, and sound design by Mark Berger, has been awarded Best Documentary Feature at the 2015 GI Film Festival, San Diego and the 2016 Major Norman Hatch Award for Best Feature Length Documentary FIlm by the  U.S. Marine Corps Heritage Foundation.
