Charlotte STYLE Magazine Fall 2011

Alright folks, I can finally talk about one of my freelance projects that I've been working on for the month of September. Before I begin, let's back track a little bit. In Fall of 2008, I interned with Charlotte STYLE Magazine, an online publication just getting it's start in the Queen City. I stayed with them until Fall of 2009, eventually taking over as Art Director, overseeing all artwork put into the magazine. In 2009, I managed to juggle three jobs and it got to be a little much. I loved working with Charlotte STYLE, but it was time to leave. About two months ago, the publisher contacted me to see if I would like to join the team again for the Fall 2011 issue. Feeling a little bored at work, and wanting a challenge for myself, I gladly accepted.

I wanted a challenge, and I got it. This issue took a lot of time and effort but it was SO worth it. I had so much fun and it really made me love the world of graphic design all over again. It brought excitement and joy to my day. Something I have been missing in my work for the past year. I actually felt like I had a purpose as a designer again!

I am so proud of this magazine and how it has improved over the past 2 years. The magazine itself got an entire makeover and I can't express enough how glad I am to be a part of this amazing team.

Last Friday night, we revealed the DOUBLE cover to the public and the magazine went live. It can be found online at (be sure to take a look!) and you can also order it for print (go ahead, buy a copy!). Below are some memories from the issue release party. I was glad that my husband and good friend, Elyse were there for support. Thanks guys!!
