Since the inception of Pagemaker – the precursor to InDesign – I’ve been creating and designing using desktop publishing software. In fact, I cut my teeth on Ventura Publisher (NOT Microsoft’s “Publisher”). And before Photoshop was even a twinkle, I was designing in Corel Draw.
I have created numerous publications for my companies and have been responsible for the custom publication 100% in-house as well as managing content and design.
Here are some of my favorite magazines:
Bimonthly Real Estate Magazine – A joint project between Hutchens Law Firm and Coldwell Banker Advantage. Click on the image to open the magazine in Issuu. Note: due to the scope of this project, we used a designer for the articles and the property listing pages, but many of the ads in these publications were designed in-house by me.
Harnett Health Magazine – a health magazine for the system’s two hospitals and seven physician practices. This project was created fully in-house by me and my marketing team. Here are just two of our favorite issues:
The Great Dane: A Beginner’s Manual – an educational manual I wrote and designed when I bred champion Great Danes. This manual was available for sale to breeders for their puppy kits.
Other Hospital Magazines – Central Carolina Hospital quarterly magazine and Dosher Memorial Hospital’s 75th Anniversary magazine. The CCH quarterly magazine was a group project with a design company with me supplying the creative elements, instructions, and written content. Dosher Hospital’s magazine was created 100% by me from research to camera-ready files sent to the printer.
