Georgetown Centennial Identity

2010 celebrates the 100th anniversary of the annexation of the Georgetown neighborhood by the city of Seattle—an important moment in the history of this colorful community. Over a period of several months I worked with the Georgetown Community Council to develop this identity which will be applied to materials for upcoming events, fundraising and marketing.

Some of the key words the identity needed to convey were: quirky, fun, historic, independent, gritty and enduring. It also needed to be timeless and evoke the personality of the neighborhood—a unique, rich historical past, along with spirited community activism.

I presented several options to choose from and in the end my favorite solution was chosen. The palette represents the brick of the neighborhood's buildings and the individual elements highlight some of the well known landmarks of the area.

Green Eyed Lady Illustration: In Print

I can't believe it's already February! I hope you all enjoyed Hot Tea Month and have flipped your calendar to settle into Embroidery Month. A couple of weeks ago I got an advanced copy of the February/March issue for Horticulture Magazine and was so happy to see my Green Eyed Lady illustration peering back at me. Pick up a copy, it's chocked full of great gardening advice!
