Traverse Magazine Lifestyle Features
At Traverse Magazine, I collaborated closely with the editorial staff on ideas, then worked with our staff photographer or freelance photographers to carry out the creative concepts. I designed every feature, down to the kerning and final photo retouching. Traverse has been the premier regional magazine for Northern Lower Michigan and Upper Michigan since 1981. The magazine was recognized three times for General Excellence (CRMA) and once as Magazine of the Year (IRMA) during my tenure as Art Director (2000–09).
