AIGA Clockwork 2009
This fall I participated again in AIGA's Clockwork event. I was paired with an organization called "A Woman's Purse," which helps young people in foster care transition to independent living. I developed a self-mailer brochure. My project received the "People's Choice Award" among 16 other entries.
UCDA Reveal Workshop
Brenda Foster of GCF Design and I co-chaired a regional UCDA workshop that took place at Towson University on June 12, 2009. The workshop featured prominent speakers including Ellen Lupton, and focused on marketing and design strategies for educational institutions. Read more at www.ucda.com/reveal.
ARLD (Academic & Research Libraries Division)
On April 17, 2009 I made a presentation to the Academic & Research Libraries Division of the Maryland Library Association which discussed techniques for developing innovative and cost-effective marketing communications on a limited budget.
This past fall the AIGA BlueRidge chapter held its first annual ClockWork event, where designers were paired with nonprofits that needed design work completed pro bono. I was paired with the Home Builders Care Foundation, an organization that designs and builds high quality housing for at risk populations. I designed a new logo for them and created an identity style guide to help ensure brand consistency across all their marketing communication materials.
