It’s way past time to make this official on my blog, so here it is. In early September Peter and I officially became Massachusetts residents (well, I guess it was “official” in early October, when we changed our vehicle and voter registrations). On September 1 I started a position as Senior Associate of Digital Campaigns at the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee, a nonprofit that promotes global and domestic human rights and social justice. I’m very excited to explore my new state, and to keep exploring New England from the perspective of “that girl from the Midwest.”
To kick off these explorations, some Massachusetts travel art:
“The Emerald City” has been Seattle’s official nickname since 1982.
I originally posted this on my online portfolio, but I think it belongs on A Hoosier in the Nutmeg State as well. My boyfriend, who is from Seattle, served as my inspiration for this experiment. Now he can have a little piece of home, all the way in Connecticut. For reference, in real life this is an 18″ x 24″ poster.
Some decorative themes I’m thinking of using in future projects, complete with cutesy naming conventions:
I really, really love the grime vector packs in Illustrator. Perhaps too much.
I have a really hard time dealing with idleness. That’s why I spent most of my holiday vacation beefing up my design skills. The result? Postcards featuring scenes from my home state! Feeling inclined to support my work? You can have a printer-ready PDF of four postcards for $2.
This year I decided to send out some holiday cards. These were designed for digital distribution, but could easily be modified as print cards.
