Achieving the Impossible
Here’s a sneak peek at the most intense design project I’ve worked on to date: the alumni magazine for The American University of Paris. As the school prepares to celebrate its 50th Anniversary Gala in less than two weeks, I learned that there was a last minute design project that needed tending to: a 40-page, full color, magazine. A special 50th anniversary edition, no less…. and we had a week to pull it off. Could it be accomplished? I was doubtful. But, there’s something to be said of working under pressure—the adrenaline kicks in and you just concentrate on the job at hand. We’re closing in on the final product now and I couldn’t be happier with the result. Whew. pages for mepages for me2pages for me3spreads for mepages for me4
Poppies Take the Prize
I certainly felt a sense of accomplishment with the completion of the spring issue of Berkshire Botanical Garden‘s magazine, Cuttings. Working with a new client and under an extreme deadline, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. Fortunately, we had instant chemistry and the design progressed seamlessly. With the project to the printer in record time, we were patting ourselves on the back for a job well done! Oh, and the poppies took the prize for the cover image! (It was definitely my favorite!)

Sneak Peek: Berkshire Botanical Garden
Spring has sprung and I’ve decided to take the graphic designer’s approach to gardening: layout the Berkshire Botanical Garden’s next edition of “Cuttings.” I’ve been getting my hands dirty, digging through the Garden’s library of images for the perfect cover.  Here are my favorites… will have to wait and see which one takes the prize! covers
Sneak Peek: Details
I’m super excited to be working with interior designer, Carole King of Details on the redesign of her website and advertising. We’re just getting started… but thought I’d share a sneak peek at where we’re headed. Carole is an amazingly talented woman: not only does she run a successful interior design business, but she also owns an amazing shop in the village of Egremont, MA. It’s loaded with unique accessories, artwork and furniture that can’t help but inspire your space in some way. Her energy, talent, creativity and honest approach to design has made my job so much fun. details ad_the hills
