The Greenwich Historical Society preserves the history of Greenwich and inspires a spirit of discovery through educational programs and exhibits and encourages active participation in the preservation and interpretation of the Town’s past.
I was hired by the Historical Society to produce a host of graphics, from printed event invitations, banners, posters, brochures, newsletters, email blasts, etc.
Later i was asked to redesign their website and keep it current. i worked with a programmer and helped them implement a shopping cart.
i was then asked to make it mobile-friendly and added a content management system so they could make minor changes in-house.
i work remotely with the Greenwich Historical Society on a daily basis. i relish the chance to meet with them in-person occasionally to strengthen the relationship and also i get to see their beautiful campus and amazing exhibitions and collections.
i am cognizant of their branding and keep all the materials i produce in line with that, but feel i can still keep it fresh. They are embarking on a big capital improvement to their campus and with it they are looking for a new look for their identity program. i look forward to working with them to implements that.
This bit in the book fascinated me: Hobos of old had a whole set of symbols which they’d carve on a nearby tree or post, that they used to advise other hobos if a business or home was friendly, provided food, had a mean dog, etc.
more to come...
