Mugger's Marrow needed a label redesign of "Stick' em up" spicy glaze/marinades to better emphasis: organic, low in sugar, calories & sodium plus the various available flavors.
This was a lot of information to fit on the face: the logo, the name, all of the info, and the flavor photos but Johanna was able to create these clean, informative labels. The product is now in all Stop & Shop locations in Connecticut!

Southern New Hampshire University, Peabody Essex Museum, 
Paraxel International and the Beverly Farms Library. 

PEM Case Statement & collateral

Bohoy Design created a 200th anniversary logo and signature for the Peabody Essex Museum which they used as their icon until the development of their new branding and museum expansion.

For this expansion PEM hired Bohoy Design to create a case statement to help raise the $125 million needed.
The final result was a portfolio of colorful, interrelated pieces that represented the vision of the director and what the “new” museum would be.

To market the new museum and also it’s unique Chinese House [YYT], which was brought over from China and reassembled on their newly transformed museum campus, two informational brochures were produced by Bohoy Design.

For the novel "Ghost Ship" by Lori Townsend, Johanna did a pastel painting of a ship enveloped by ghostly mists and clouds, in an ink-dark night, on an eery roiling sea. The thriller depicts reporter Zilla Gillette who investigates the human trafficking of young girls and boys who have been abducted and carried by a vessel at sea to a hidden location.

Johanna used her painting, done in 2008 to symbolize the commencement of Obama's presidency, for the cover of the novel "American Home Wrecker" by Lori Townsend. 
The book is a depiction of the white supremacist underworld in America, as well as a look at domestic violence investigated by reporter Zilla Gillette.
For the cover design she ripped the art apart to simulate what the "home wreckers" in the book have attempted to do– divide America, abolish what our first African American president had accomplished, and to create tumult in America.

Pastel illustration by Johanna to accompany an article she wrote about baking for the MSFA Massachusetts Specialty Newsletter.
Excerpt: “The sun was slanting thru the crisp white curtains of the compact kitchen– a scent of wild rose from the blossoming bush outside the window was perfuming the air as the breeze blew in– but the scent of cake baking in the oven was the star. My mother was singing “la de da...” as she whipped up a 7 Minute Frosting to ice the impending cake as we all hovered and waited in anticipation to lick the beaters..."
