Do as I say, not as I do!

As I was showing a customer how I have an html site with a WordPress blog embedded into it, I realized it’s been a LONG time since I’ve made a post!  Not just long, REALLY long.  My last post was in 2012.  I don’t even know how that’s possible!

So what have I been doing over the last few YEARS?  I’ve been busy with a lot of different projects both big and small.  I’ll fill you in on my last couple…

The Contrology Center Pilates Studio Germantown WI

Large EDDM Postcard for The Contrology Center Pilates Studio in Germantown, WI

The Contrology Center is a newer Pilates Studio in Germantown.  She wanted to reach people within a certain radius of the studio so we decided to use the “Every Door Direct Mail” program at the Post Office.  We printed an extra large postcard and picked our routes.  It worked perfect!  In addition to the postcard design, I also did all of the photography for this as well.  It was a fun project!


2017 Germantown WI Park and Rec Fall/Winter Guide

Germantown’s Park & Rec Fall/Winter Guide

First of all, I can’t believe I’m already doing work on fall/winter projects.  I love summer and even the thought of it coming to an end makes me so sad!  BUT, I absolutely LOVE working on this project.  It’s the perfect fit for me.  Organizing a lot of information and laying it out in a way that’s easy to understand and easy to follow.  It helps that the Park & Rec staff does a fantastic job of getting the information to me in a completely readable format!  Want to see the rest of the book?  Visit their website for the online version – and sign up for some classes there are so many great offerings!




Premier Bride Magazine Milwaukee Northeast Wisconsin Detroit

Premier Bride’s Summer/Fall Edition

The 4th of July marks the release of the summer/fall edition of Premier Bride Magazine.  Currently, I’m working on the Milwaukee (Southeast Wisconsin), Northeast Wisconsin and Michigan books.  One of my favorite projects of all time.  I love working on books with LOTS of pages.  Let’s me exercise the coordination between my right and left brain.  I’m fortunate – they give me a lot of latitude to be creative and try new things each time we publish.  It’s a great team and a great project.  Want to see the entire book?  Visit Milwaukee’s online version here.


Jefferson County Wisconsin Tourism

Jefferson County Official Guide and Website

Lastly, I have to share the latest website I’ve been working on.  The Jefferson County Tourism Council’s official website promoting tourism across the county.  We’ve featured some of the top tourism events and locations from The Fireside Dinner Theatre to a great local coffee pick me up Berres Brothers Coffee Roasters.  There’s also a packed event calendar and a signup for receiving a monthly newsletter.  It’s a feature-packed website and I’m so happy to be working on it.


That’s the latest in a nutshell.  Please know – I’m still keeping busy even if I’m not posting online.  But don’t follow my lead.  Keep up on your blog posts, add photos and don’t forget to include keywords on your photos for top notch SEO!!  🙂

Some new graphic design projects!

It’s been a while since I’ve done a blog post. I know – you’re all sitting on pins and needles, right? The reason I’ve been absent is because I’ve been busy on some new projects that I’d like to tell you about!

Toward the end of last year, I started working on a newspaper for the Leyden Township area in Chicago. It’s a fun and informative paper about news in the area. View the April issue of People and Places.

Getting into the holiday season, I finalized a gift card and gift card holder for Domani Salon and Spa in Watertown, Wisconsin and wrapped up another round of Premier Bride books.  This time, I worked on a new book for Hampton Roads Virginia.  I love doing books for warmer climates – the photos are just so pretty and always make me want to go on vacation!

Rounding out 2012 brought in a new project for 81 Main.  I got to wear my photographer hat again capturing some incredible new products like candelabras, vases, and more all designed for those who put together really amazing events.  The 81 Main Catalog was a great experience – I really LOVE putting together catalogs!!

That brings us to 2012!  And with any new year comes my involvement with the Jefferson County Tourism Council and the 2012 Jefferson County Official Guide.  It’s my 14th year working on the book – it’s a lot of work but incredibly gratifying to complete each year.

Last but not least, I worked on two other new projects one a logo for Walling Consulting Services and a brochure for Chemung Hills in Howell, Michigan.

So now you know what I’ve been up to for the last few months.  As the temperature starts to go up, I’ll be getting into photography season.  It’s a great way to get me outside!  Hopefully I’ll keep up on my blog entries so I can show you the projects as I go! Happy Spring everyone and talk to you soon!!
