Recent Work

I rarely post design projects that I work on. I don't know why. I think I might start doing that more often.

I had the privilege to get to design the marketing brochure for the Doug Fields' Live Curriculum from Group/Simply Youth Ministry (the publishing co. I work for). It's such a great resource for youth pastors and small church pastors. I was actually stoked on the way the brochure turned out. I liked working with the creators of the curriculum and fellow designers on this piece. I love the collaboration of design. Yeah, revision after revision can suck sometimes, but when you get to hold the final piece in your hands it's all so worth it. I love what I do.

So this summer I went camping in Big Bear with a few of my best friends.

I like camping. I don't love it. On a scale from 1-10 it's about a 6. I mean, really, there's nothing better than a perfectly grilled steak, but I prefer it prepared at Ruth's Chris with a glass of wine. And I have all the rugged Patagonia and North Face gear, but, I'll be honest, it usually only gets worn when the marine layer hasn't burned off in the morning or it's a chilly evening at Disneyland.

This weekend was a blast though. The weather was perfect. We had absolutely nothing planned. We sat around all day and ate, talked, laughed, read and slept. I couldn't have asked for a more relaxing weekend. I love these guys.
