Digital Newsletters

KCETLink

Purpose: to format and redesign email templates for KCETLinks’s site editors who prepare content for weekly delivery.

We implemented formatted templates and styled them to suit the design guidelines for individual KCETLink shows and verticals. The templatized newsletters eased the burden of production for the side editors. Every week KCETLink distributes digital newsletters to thousands of subscribers in Greater Los Angeles and beyond.

How To Make Marinara Sauce

Purpose: to teach a something in less than 5 minutes with my iPhone.

Behind the scenes: This down and dirty assignment merged my analog and digital skills. After years working as a freelance lettering artist I returned to school to learn digital design and multimedia presentation. I wanted to learn what designers are using to craft current designs and experiences. For this project I linked the video to a background through HTML and CSS and posted it to my website.
