New Job

I started my new job this week working as a “Marketing Assistant” (code for graphic designer) at Student Union Marketing. I’ll be getting to do lots of work – especially in different mediums – not just print ads. We do labels, storefront design, tags, ads, tshirts, posters, and my first assignment – a catering menu. A friend, who used to have my job here, James Crotchett, designed the logo for Celebrations Catering before moving on to Saatchi & Saatchi X in Springdale, AR.

I applied the theme and such to this menu design. It’s pretty hefty. I got a left pinky finger cramp from changing font styles over and over from the original Word document it started as. Of course this would never happen if we had Apple keyboards. But no, my new boss is a PC person! Hopefully I can show her the light by the time I graduate. The pics will be higher-res evenutally too. For now, they’re iStock comps that I removed the watermarks from.

So this is the 1st draft I worked on last week and tweaked a little this week. It’s being proofed the rest of the week, so I’ll update it when it’s all ready to go to press.

WordPress doesn’t allow me to embed Issuu flash pieces, so you’ll need to click here to check it out in all its Issuu glory. I love Issuu – great interface and quality, but my only problem is a lack of  functional embedding for WordPress.

Here are some thumbnails to get you to click on the Issuu book link.
