PORTFOLIO

FUNERALNET NFDA ONESHEET FLYER

GRAPHIC DESIGN

The NFDA (National Funeral Directors' Association) has a yearly tradeshow where many deathcare market leaders converge to market new products and services. The design direction was directly influenced by the FuneralNet site, as I inherited both the typography and gradient web 2.0 feel from the current site. This flyer was directed by sales & marketing and designed by me.

PROGRAMS USED:
