In the mid nineties, I worked for a division of the Martin Agency in Richmond, Virginia (USA). My job consisted of entry- to mid-level tasks — everything from photo retouching to light advertising copy and design challenges. One of the accounts we supported was Saab USA.

For a presentation, I recalled Saab’s rich history in quality automobiles and jets.


I provided input on art and copy for an advertising design.


I handled photo retouching for a wide variety of advertising assets. I was the guy who made the cars look super glossy and appealing — a Saab tradition that continues today.
