St. Louis was GRAND, but opportunities to put my educational writing and design skills to use as the Communications Officer for the Texas State Library and Archives Commission came-a-knockin’ and I couldn’t resist the lure of Texas (and tacos…. ok mainly tacos). I whipped up this geometric banner using images held in the collection of the Texas State Archives.

Client: Catholic Charities of St. Louis Advocacy Department/ Latinos en Axion

Brief: I was approached by the advocacy department of the Archdiocese of St. Louis to design a campaign to help raise awareness of the deportation and separation of immigrant families in the city of St. Louis and the State of Missouri and to promote the passage of comprehensive immigration reform. As part of the first phase of the campaign, collateral was created to be used as mail action pieces to be signed by parishioners and sent to key decision making legislators in Washington D.C. The second phase of the campaign will include additional print materials and an art installation on Cherokee Street, the thriving epicenter of multicultural St. Louis.
Recently I had the pleasure of working with St. Charles, Missouri based ABC Daycare and Learning Center to update their web site and freshen their look. The new site features many updated visual elements, sliders, parent testimonials and maps to help prospective parents find the perfect location for their preschooler.
Train travel is one of my all time favorite ways to get from point A. to point B. ( thanks, middle school algebra). One of the best parts of the trip is deciding what types of edibles to bring along to nibble upon while en-route. This particular journey to Chicago called for pumpkin seeds, smoked kielbasa ( I love stinking up the train car with the smell of Eastern European smoked meats), hard boiled eggs (laid fresh from a very talented South City St. Louis chicken), Afghani flatbread, a hunk of pepperjack cheese, butter and mustard. Alllllllllll abord!
