I have been lucky enough to work with people from all different types of industries. However, I’d never had the opportunity to work with an author, and I really wanted to have the chance! So, when the lovely Caroline Rose reached out to me about her project, I was delighted! Caroline is a thoughtful, smart, and dog-loving woman who is inspiring others with her story of hope. I am beyond grateful to be working with her, and I’m so excited to share a glimpse of a digital download I designed for her. It’s called ‘Hope Rules,’ and in it, she outlines 10 ways you can offer support to someone who is going through a difficult time. To get a copy of ‘Hope Rules,’ just visit www.dearrileyrose.com and sign up to her newsletter!
There’s something big I’m wanting to share today… I’ve been working as a graphic designer for over a decade, but it wasn’t until this year that I had the opportunity to work on a program book that is almost 60 pages long! I’ll admit that I was a bit nervous about taking on this project. I had never done a book this big before, and I knew it included an elaborate multipage course schedule that would be a challenge to design. Thankfully, the VECCS team members in charge of coordinating with me were amazing! We were able to work smoothly and efficiently to create the IVECCS 2019 Preliminary Program—that’s right, it’s a preliminary book! That means a final program, with a few more pages in it, is coming later this year! But, now my nerves are gone, and I’m excited to tackle the next one! It’s hard work putting together a book this long, but it’s also very gratifying. I can’t wait to show you guys the final program in the fall!
Why is it that I’m only just now realizing that a bustling, busy Monday, which I generally don’t look forward to, can become an exciting day just by sharing a new project with ya’ll? So, check out this brand new brochure I designed and printed for my longtime client and friend, Wendy Bolerjack, aka Your Queen Bead. I loved getting together with Wendy to plan out the layout—in fact, the idea for this brochure came to us during one of our meetups. I’m delighted with how the piece turned out and how it showcases Wendy’s beautiful beaded servers on every page. Now, this makes me start the week feeling so much brighter! What activities make your Mondays better?
I can tell you
Last month BlackStone Studio created this brochure for the UIW Feik School of Pharmacy. I loved working on a this promotional piece because it was written in Spanish. I designed the brochure, and while I wasn’t the main translator for this project, I did collaborate in the editing process. I hope I get to work on more bilingual projects this year!
I’m excited to share another brochure booklet designed by BlackStone
