Half the fun of the travel is the esthetic of lostness.
To the surprise of no one that knows me, Ray Bradbury is my favorite author. I snatch at any work he’s ever done, and one of the top items on my bucket list is to read every word he’s ever published.
One thing that always struck me, reading his books, was his language. Words rolled out of his characters’ mouths like butter. He’d be so descriptive of the scene that I’d find myself winded and smelling the morning dew, just like the boys running through the morning grass in his books. And I realized, his words held a lot of wisdom. So I decided I’d like to make some posters featuring quotes of his that hit home for me. This is the first. You can buy it on Søciety6.
The Peabody Retirement Community is one of the premier retirement communities in northeast Indiana. Every year in April, they hold a Tulip Festival, to celebrate the thousands of beautiful tulips on their grounds. In 2013, they rebranded their business, and this meant the logo I’d done for their Tulip Festival in 2012 had to be updated as well. This was the resulting mark, used on print, digital, and even bus advertising.
Formed in 1987, the Huntington County Literacy Coalition is a not-for-profit organization in partnership with the United Way. It helps Huntington County residents acquire reading, writing, and math skills at a basic level with the goal that such skills will allow individuals to participate more fully in society and in the workplace.
An intake coordinator at the public library works (my workplace) to match community volunteers with non-reading adults or adults working on their GED who need tutors. A board of community members interested in promoting literacy serve six-year rotating terms and meet once a month to oversee the coalition.
