In August, the work that I did on Pomona College‘s website went live. NewCity, where I worked at the time, has now featured a case study about it on their homepage, but it lacks my perspective as the primary designer, so I wanted to share some about my process. (more…)
I signed up this spring for a Unitarian Universalist media group on Facebook, for making assets to share our “good word.” Being an actual designer, the couple of samples I shared apparently went over very well, and I was hired by the curator of the UUA WorshipWeb to make a set of outreach materials for General Assembly.
