For a period of about 5-6 years, I did a great deal of work for the investment firm AG Edwards, mostly for a quarterly investors newsletter, but also for several in-house advertising projects. When I originally contracted for this work, our agreement was for a 5 year unlimited usage, but since the company is actually no longer in business, I think it might be safe to post some of this work.
Anyhow, these are the illustrations I did for this company in 2006. Most of the work this year tended to feature the ‘nest egg’ concept, which was their current ‘corporate image’ in all their media ads. After a while, the ‘egg theme’ got to be a little constricting.
Throughout 2005, I did a great deal of work for AG Edwards, both for a quarterly investor’s newsletter, and for several in-house advertising projects. The nature of the agreement I had with them was for a 5 year unlimited usage, so, up to now, I’ve been waiting until the 5 years are up before posting these samples on my site. (I’m actually posting this one in 2010) But since the company is no longer in operation, I’ll be posting the remainder of the artwork for this client. Much of it is of an investment/money/savings subject matter, and in the last few years I started doing more and more with a ‘nest egg’ theme, since that was their current ‘marketing concept’.
Anyhow, the ones in this post were illustrations I did for them in 2005.
All the illustrations in this post were for the investment firm AG Edwards done during 2004. At the time, our agreement was for a 5 year usage of these illustrations, so I’ve held back on posting them until the time period has elapsed. At this point, however (2010), since the firm is no longer in business, I think I’ll start posting the rest of the illustrations for 2005 and 2006 at my earliest convenience and put them into the ‘reprint mill’.
Most of these were for a quarterly newsletter, that usually involved an overview of the market, a smaller article about retirement accounts and a few others on various subjects. It was usually quite similar from quarter to quarter, and so a challenge to keep coming up with fresh approaches to the same subject matter (while at the same time, doing similar work for other financial clients).
These were a series of illustrations for AG Edwards, for their quarterly newsletter. These generally had to do with investing and savings, with only slight variations from quarter to quarter depending on the current financial situation. I have been saving illustrations from this particular client to post until a 5 year window has passed, due to usage arrangments I made at the time these were contracted.
A few more ‘investment’ illustrations for AG Edwards. Due to the usage agreement, I am posting these illustrations only after five years have passed. The firm was eventually bought out by another company sometime in 2007, so I suppose it no longer even matters, but I’ll continue to honor my end of the agreement regardless.
