I've been conveying information and translating concepts through graphic design, illustration, and print production for a darned long time. My work includes educational products, books, branding, identity, online media, packaging, advertising, and marketing communications for nonprofit and commercial clients like Coca-Cola, Hasbro, Adidas, Kaplan K12, and Workman Publishing. My textbooks and custom curriculum educational materials, including the award-winning reading-intervention product SpellRead, have been used in public schools across the country.

My knowledge of print production enables me to plan projects efficiently and communicate easily with vendors. As a 20-year Macintosh user, I can identify and resolve Mac software- and hardware-related issues that IT support often overlooks. A former resident of QuarkXpress, I live in InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop, while frequently visiting Microsoft's Office.

“My heart leapt. So much hard work has clearly gone into [the site], I'm really blown away.”

Phillip Johnston

“Working with Maurice, I feel that I have a talented creative partner — not just a graphic designer. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a talented collaborator.”

Deborah (Lerman) Rayow
Executive Producer
Scholastic Education

“He brings with him a wealth of personal and professional experience that not only strengthens our creative team, but challenges me to constantly evaluate and improve my own design work. It is a privilege to work with Mo.”

Michael Young
Creative Director
Kaplan K12 Learning Services

“Maurice is a talented, reliable professional — a pleasure to work with, and a big asset to any team. His bag of colorful skills makes a gray work world so much fun you forget you’re working hard, and he’s working hard (to make you look good).

Carmen Laube
Manager
M. Barry and Company

“He’s always willing to help and lend his trained eye — regardless of if a project is ‘his’ or not. He also always has the end user in mind. Our students are drawn to our products — Mo is why.”

Laura Paczosa Keehan
Executive Director

“His incredible skill-set helped make each one of the projects we worked on a success. His dedication to his job and Kaplan K12 Learning Services was unwavering. I truly envy his future co-workers.”

“[We] acquired a reading intervention product that had been developed by a mom-and-pop organization... It had not been created with design and mass usability in mind. Maurice took this program and rendered it nearly unrecognizable from before we acquired it... The key to the program's success — and to Maurice’s skill — is the emphasis on what is functional. His work will help to ensure that this very important program can be easily adopted and used to help non-readers become readers.”
