I was honored to be asked to design and layout Cordova’s Clean Harbor Insert this year. I had so much fun incorporating these beautiful watercolor wave graphics throughout this information packed 4-page publication from Native Village of Eyak and Cordova Clean Harbor project partners.
Right out of college I was the front page designer at the Idaho Statesman where I was honored to working with a very talented crew of reporters, photographers, editors and designers. The forward thinking, alternative storytelling and maestro news team meetings taught me so much about teamwork, collaborative design, info graphics and the future of news design. I was lucky to be there during a very exciting time when the news team was a Pulitzer Prize finalist for it’s coverage of Sen. Larry Craig, R-Idaho. My cover designs from this time won first place in news design from the Idaho Press Club.
I didn’t grab my copy of the Anchorage Press last week until Sunday afternoon during a leisurely trip to Girdwood for a little lunch and exploration. So I was pretty pleased when I sat down at a restaurant with a copy of the press and the Insider’s Guide slid out. This is one of my most recent projects. I had a great time working with the wonderful folks at the Anchorage’s alt weekly on their combined visitor guide and restaurant special — Cuisine Scene. The visual theme was inspired by nautical and map design with some seersucker stripes and a splash of neon — an ode the the bizarre combinations of lime, teal and tangerine I have been seeing and crushing on lately.
What are those lovely fonts?
Why they are called Seaside Resort, Pacifico and Futura.
