This past month has been a crazy new transition! I’ve taken a new day job with the University of New Orleans, as the Production Coordinator in the Office of Communications, Public Relations and Marketing. I’m so stoked about this new position, as a way to further my knowledge of the graphic design and printing business, try new things, meet new coworkers and just generally experience new things in New Orleans. So far, I love it here! My first project was a big one and I got to see it fully complete last Thursday!
The UNO Athletics Department rolled out a brand-spanking-new logo last week, to the delight of students, athletes and faculty, and I helped design the signage to reflect some building changes around campus.
Having been freelancing for so long now, I had completely forgotten how great it can be to collaborate and work on a team. Working with another designer for the first time in awhile was really fun, and I look forward to many other projects in the future!
The office I’ve inherited at UNO is chock full of incredible paper samples. I just wanted to take a minute to share some of the beautiful pieces I found stashed on my bookshelf.
“Folding for the Fabulous” Sappi folding technique guide. I can see where this is going to come in handy.
Royal Linen Royal Laid samples. I am loving the illustrations on this one. If these papers are ever retired, I’m turning this book into some artwork for my office walls.
Beautiful, modern emboss on another sample from Royal Linen.
By far my favorite find was the French Paper Company’s sample books, specifically the patterned paper. I have to remember this for some personal projects – I love the idea of this paper for some babies and brides!
Thanks for sticking by me in this transition period. I promise to get back on the blog train regularly now!
Question: Do you work in an office outside the home? If so, have you decorated? I don’t know what to do with my big, empty white walls!
