This layout was one of 4 layouts nominated for a Fashion Award. I was not chosen but they did use one of the layout pages as the big screen image for announcing the category so.... The others were just a little better. Can't win 'em all!
The periodic special home addition for Gambit Weekly. At one point I was responsible for laying the entire section out cover-to-cover. It was my happy place TBH.
Ah the dying out of print! BUT PRINT IS FUUUUUN!!!!!!

Gambit Weekly Fashion Layout - Alpha Award Nominee
Gambit was my very first job while still earning my degree. I pretty much dove into the deep end and almost drowned tbh; but I stopped, refocused and kicked harder to really develop all I use now. It has paid off! This top beauty was nominated for an award. There were 4 nominations and I was against the likes of Mignon Faget!!! Her designs are divine, and I did not place. But! They did use my main page as the award section intro image, so it obviously didn't suck that badly. BUT MIGNON FAGET!!!! I mean.... swoon.

This was a quarterly special section that came out. For a while I designed the entire section on an old cream Mac LONG before the cloud came out — way back when a 4G hard drive was "so huge". I was also blessed with not one, but two of the higher-grossing ad reps, so I was able to start passing some of the issue off. I got to keep the feature but helped art direct the guts. We had some great designers on staff so it was pretty easy to do.
