I’m excited about this recent article I wrote at Schlitz Audubon, Woodpeckers: Storytellers of the Wisconsin Forest. I had a lot of fun working on it. The writing style is a combination or journalism, marketing, and educational writing while tapping our knowledgeable staff members as informational sources. The above graphic was put together by my colleague Zoe Finney, and features the quilting work of Myra Van Uxem.
Went to go swimming at the #Milwaukee county pool on 82nd and Good Hope and – what’s with this forest over here in the middle of the city? Went for a nice little hike; even startled an American Woodcock, which are great fun because they always startle back.
Within one brief brainstorming meeting we came up with the theme, name, and basic layout for the invitation for our Annual Gala at Schlitz Audubon. Below is the invitation, completed within a few days after selecting props. I love working with a nimble in-house creative team, how we can come up with ideas that excite us and have the resources and trust from our colleagues to make what we imagine live within hours or days.
