Because I work from home, I didn’t get to see the printed product until a couple of days ago. I do love how the covers turned out so I just had to hug our very hard-working EIC Marbee for making sure they got printed beautifully.*
*In this country, graphic artists rarely get to exercise creative freedom when it comes to commercial endeavors so I’m really really grateful to Sesame Seed for not setting limits on my passion for design.
My Arn also had another collaboration with photographer Andrew Contreras and this time it was for a fashion spread with a theme close to my heart – Broadway musicals! Shei, of course!, wrote the beautiful copy that accompanies it.
