Something about the end of summer/start of fall has once again put me in a reflective mood.
I even dug up an old Bucket List, which I can at least say I’ve initiated, and accurately refer to as a work in progress.
For now, I reflect upon my successes. In the past ten weeks at my current post, I’ve helped:
- Gain over 1,000 new fans on Facebook (>10%) — purely from organic posts and thoughtful, quality content
- Double the average impressions per post
Aside from that, I’m excited about smaller, everyday victories. Today, for instance, I got support from two community partners in promoting our organization. And next week, I’m looking forward to representing the organization at a nationwide conference. I hope to share photos from the event, so keep your eyes peeled!
What are *your* victories, whether overtime or for the day? And have you told your roommates about them and posted updates on the fridge?!

Crawl. Walk. Run. Fly.
I should probably start building my profile on Dribbble. For some reason Behance seems a little over my head…
As previously stated, I started some serious design work.
Click the following for a look at Judi Huck’s first program with InDesign (thanks again, friends at Absolut Color!).
There’s one page I wish I designed differently, but that’s an opportunity for my next program layout. Overall, this process was a major challenge and learning experience. Like many workers assembling such marketing/promotional materials, I dealt with various text, image and formatting changes. Naturally, these have the tendency to occur under the pressure of tight deadlines and turnaround times…
Thank the printer gods things ran so smoothly with my first official, professional print order! And thank the employment gods it wasn’t a complete disaster and I still *knock-on-wood* have a job!
I look forward to cleaning my desktop :)
Bleeds and crop marks have been included in the exported file to signify the nature of this work as truly in process.

New York International Ballet Competition (www.nyibc.org) is one of those clients who are always an immense pleasure to work with. There hasn’t been a day where I have not felt grateful and appreciative of the opportunity to serve on their team.
The screenshots above are from a temporary site I built for them this summer. Which means, a full-scale site renovation will be out any day now. I’m happy for NYIBC and proud for my small part in helping them get there. Cheers to Celebrating 30 Years!
