Seattle Animal Shelter Awareness Campaign

Last fall I was asked to be on the team to create an Awareness Campaign for the Seattle Animal Shelter. In addition to the dedicated folks and volunteers for the shelter, I've worked with Cindy Chischilly of White Canyon Design and Emily Rieman of Best Friend Photography—two huge animal lovers themselves. We designed a series of six ads which run on Seattle bus tails and interiors to educate the public on important issues: animal cruelty, spay/neuter, adoption, licensing, finding your lost pet and public safety. Currently the fourth ad, Find Me (pictured above), can be seen running on the busses so keep your eyes open. The final two are currently underworks and will launch later in the year.

The animals featured in the ads were all photographed specifically for the ads and their inspiring stories can be found on the shelter's website.

Georgetown Garden Walk: Sunday July 11th!

I've had the pleasure of designing the materials for the annual Georgetown Garden Walk for the past four years. In 2007 we had the plucky strutting chicken who reappeared on a cozy nest of flowers for 2008. Last year it was a collaboration with my husband who had designed the Garden Walk materials for several years prior to me. For this year's concept I was thinking about everything that is going on below ground to make a successful garden. Who doesn't like worms? Those hard-working little compost makers, chugging along, eating up waste and churning out pure garden gold.

So mark your calendars for this awesome, free event and plan on checking out the 15th Annual Georgetown Garden Walk! For more information, contact Jon Dove at 206.763.9895. Free maps of the garden locations are available the day of the walk at the Bank of America parking lot, 1112 S. Bailey St.

A June Desktop Background for You

Between travel and work, May somehow disappeared on me. I've been busy catching up on projects, tending to my garden (slug patrol) and hoping that summer sticks around once and for all here in Seattle. I'll soon post some recent design projects I've been working on, but in the meantime here is a new desktop background for you. It's from my 2010 calendar and was one of my favorites.

Same directions as the last one—there are three sizes to choose from, just select which one fits your monitor and click on the link to automatically download the file. I hope you enjoy it! :)
