FashionAWARDNOM_WIX

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!

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. (Designing it was my happy place TBH.)

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.
