In December of 2015, I was awarded a contract to develop a resource guide for City of Lake Forest. It is a city in Orange County, California that was incorporated in 1991.
The city communications lead was on the look out for an experienced designer who could take the lead on developing the resource guide creatively and who had experience in developing high quality layouts that aligned with the content.
After an in depth planning meeting with the stakeholders and staff, I developed a bookmap and concept, and provided guidance and input on content placement and imagery. Based on the approved concept I designed the guide and carried the publication through print production. The guide was very well received and I was asked to bid on other City projects as they come up.
Engagement level: concept to completion
