Senior Associate

A 31-year veteran of BCT, Earl is BCT’s expert in environmental graphics, signage, way finding and branding. Embracing a multitude of design disciplines including graphic design, architecture and landscape design, Earl is adept at creating communication and branding systems unique to each site. His design input is invaluable and he has influenced the outcome of many, if not all, of BCT’s retail-driven, mixed-use projects throughout the years. His understanding of typography, color, signage and symbolism allows him to add vibrancy to each project in its conceptual stage.

Earl has touched many well-known projects including Power Plant Live, Lexington Market, Historic Downtown Silver Spring, The Avenue at White Marsh and most recently Ellis Preserve, a mixed-use project located in Newton, PA.

Earl received his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design from the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) and is a member of the Society for Experiential Graphic Design (SEGD).

"Environmental graphics are key to a project’s success as they serve to shape the visitor’s overall experience through wayfinding, identification and branding."
