Me Becoming Me, CD design

I recently designed this CD for my talented, friend, Julie Sweeney. I also had the honor of taking her photos for this CD. I hadn't designed a CD in quite some time so it was a real treat to design one again. The illustrations are by Peter Reynolds. I thought the image was prefect for this CD design and represents Julie well.

Dedham History

My newest cover for the Dedham Historical Brochure. It will be part of historical tours that people can use when walking around historic Dedham Square. It has loads of information about the different Dedham historical houses and buildings. I think this will be the final. I also took the photos for this cover. It was fun getting the detailed shots. This projects is being produced through a collaboration between Dedham Square Circle and Dedham Historical Society.
