Veer: Visual Elements for Creatives
Imagine Getty Images’ little brother as a celebrated hipster designer, and you’ll get the Veer brand. More than just licensing photos, illustrations, and type, Veer was all about inspiring creative excellence in our customers.
I was with Veer for nearly three years before it was absorbed into Corbis. Here’s a look at just a few of the pieces I helped create.
The top designer and I were tasked with creating Veer’s most luxurious print piece. The concept was to delve deeply into the human experience. Each spread evokes a different human need, such as laughter, romance, safety, or freedom. I’m proud to have contributed concept and copy as well as several visual ideas. Also proud that this won props from Applied Arts and The American Graphic Design Awards. (Get a better look at it in the Creative Director’s portfolio: http://sheldonpopiel.com/needs/)

New Old catalog
Since today’s grannies today are more likely to heli-ski than sewing bee, we decided to explore the new face of old. Contains extensive statistics, original interviews, and era-appropriate song lyrics that capture each section’s theme. [Won kudos from Applied Arts.]
The monthly Visual Elements Catalog
One of my favorite tasks was writing Merchandise Blurbs for Veer’s in-house store:
After cranking out even more concepts and copy for the website, ads, and customer gifts, I’d take a minute to exhale Veer’s weekly marketing emails, such as Tap into Talent, or their highest revenue generator: It’s Marchandise!
