Recently, Gary Alphonso was asked by The Design Office of Ann Marie Ternullo to create this art for Maryland & Virginia Milk Producers Cooperative Association’s Facebook and Twitter pages. The art was originally created for the co-op's annual report. Ann Marie’s idea was to have the art modified by Gary, to create digital banners for their social media marketing–a very effective use of the art. Elements within the art were moved around to accommodate the Facebook and Twitter logos while maximizing the impact of the image area. Aside from offering a custom solution for their social media marketing it also took advantage of the branding established by the annual report, creating a nice continuity across platforms.
