I’ve had the opportunity to work on several newsletters throughout the last few years. These were created and/or edited using Microsoft Publisher.
Sacramento 49er Travel Plaza Employee Newsletter
Between March 2014 and August 2015, I designed, compiled and edited (and occasionally wrote articles for) the quarterly employee newsletter for the Sacramento 49er Travel Plaza.
The Jan/Feb/March 2014 issue (the first issue on which I worked) was a complete redesign (from the Travel Plaza’s previous Word-based newsletter) with a brand new name, new look (including the color scheme and fonts) and new features/sections/graphics. I stopped working on this publication when the employee newsletter was discontinued after the second issue in 2015. In 2017, I was asked to continue the newsletter and I approached it with a refreshed design based on the company’s new logo.
California Delta Conservancy Community Newsletter
As an unpaid intern, I designed (based on a design template created by a previous intern) and edited the quarterly community newsletter for the California Delta Conservancy in the winter of 2013. The articles were much longer and more technical (they were written by scientists) and I was first tasked with cutting them down. I also worked on designing the table of contents, placing photos, writing captions and laying out the pages. Unfortunately, my work schedule (full-time at a retail store) at the time only permitted me to work on one issue, but the experience taught me valuable skills.
