Williams Sonoma Annual Report Skills Used: InDesign. Illustrator. Photoshop Goals: This is an annual report that I created for Williams Sonoma, Inc. This was a great exercise in layout as well as getting creative with infographics. I wanted to be able to present the shareholders with an easy to understand set of charts and graphs while not loosing the beauty that comes from William Sonoma. I spent a lot of time researching the company and their products and tried to carry their "quality" over into the visual parts of the annual report. I also stayed within a color scheme that is very characteristic of their brand.

Skills Used: InDesign. Illustrator. GOALS: The challenge with this project was creating a creative layout that is both aesthetically pleasing and a pleasing experience for the reader. I collected a group of poems from various authors that are all related to the emotions of a woman. Each poem is printed on vellum and then overlayed on a picture that is related to the poem itself. I crafted the cover from Masonite, paper, book screws, ribbon and a whole lot of patience. Not only was it an exercise in layout but it was an exercise in patience and handicraft as well.
St. John La Lande Annual PTA Auction Skills Used: InDesign. Illustrator. Photoshop Goals: I had a great opportunity to work with the PTA last year for their Annual Aucvvtion. It is the number one money maker for their association. The goal of this project was to come up with artwork to match their overall theme called "Compass." All they asked is that I use the cross/heart symbol and anything with a map. It was a design that would be used through out all the planning, invitations, banners, posters and signs the day of. I wanted to create something that would be clean but impactful with lots of colors. 
When I was picking the font for this project I wanted something a little script but not super formal. I love this combination here. I think it's is classic and but also slightly contemporary. In working with this client I learned a lot about building a relationship with them. Open communication and working with others on the auction board as well as hitting printers deadlines.
