I was thinking about how long I’ve been a graphic designer the other day and I realized that it’s been 13 years this summer. Eight of those years, I’ve been working as a Freelancer. The other 4 years, I worked downtown at two different agencies. Gosh, how does time fly.
In honor of my new blog site, I’ve decided to highlight 20 of my most favorite projects. My hard drive is out and my archive cds are staked on both sides of my computer. Now I need to just track down all of the files and get them posted. I hope you enjoy this walk down memory lane.
#1 Mostardi Platt Environmental
My very first ‘big’ project as a freelance graphic designer was a company in Oak Brook called Mostardi Platt Environmental. They hired Plaidfish to create a new look that included a website, a folder, various brochures, booklets, tradeshow booths, cell sheets and more. They also wanted to use my photography for the pieces which was a big BONUS!! It was a great project. To figure out possible directions, we held a a creative brainstorming session at their company. It included lots of cutting, word collecting and more.
