> RAPS: After nine months of working with an old two color design Focus Magazine grows up. This magazine is now in full color and is much more organized. It visually carries the reader from one department to the next and helps the reader to distinguish between a department and a feature section. It also provides a much more robust and user-friendly table of contents. There is a commentary page located in the back that previously looked like an afterthought and now really stands out and calls attention to itself.
> INTERNATIONAL BOTTLED WATER ASSOCIATION (IBWA): IBWA's magazine REPORTER is all about bottled water. It was the first magazine I was given the lead on. The process started with a review of all of the articles. I read through them while taking notes, sketching, and starting an image search until it was time to design. The magazine was a quarterly magazine and my role was design of the features while the production artist formatted the departments. Each quarter was a different topic: management, international, a resource guide and the conference issue in which the popular sessions became feature stories in the magazine. I worked on REPORTER for 3 years.
> National Breast Cancer Coalition (NBCC): A bimonthly newsletter developed to keep those dedicated to NBCCs efforts in advocacy up to date. I designed everything including the masthead.
> UMCP Terrapin Anime Club: A fanzine for Japanese animation (anime) enthusiasts, written and reported on by a group of students at the University of Maryland. They wanted a strong presence at "cons" (conferences) held in the US. I designed a magazine that was easy for them to layout and produce on a very small budget. I designed four issues and turned the design over to the students. I provided the design for free because it was a learning experience for me to create a magazine from the ground up. It was also a very different topic which allowed for a less structured design. My approach was a take on the comic book style.
