2008 UPAA Symposium

My fellow designer, Tracey Newell, and I (pictured) will be presenting a Photoshop tips & tricks seminar for the 2008 University Photographer’s of Association of American (UPAA) Symposium June 16-20 at Auburn University. The Symposium is housed by our university this year - our photographer, Jeff Etheridge, is the host. We will cover basic photoshop "plastic surgery", time-saving methods, and some incredible new features in Photoshop CS3. These techniques will help you make the most out of any photo shoot.

2008 GDUSA Inhouse Awards
My design work for our university’s Italian study abroad program has been recognized by Graphic Design USA 2008 American Inhouse Design Awards. To awardees, GDUSA released the following statement, "Each entry is judged against itself on its own merits, for excellence in creativity and effectiveness. As a practical matter, this results each year in a selection of between 10 percent and 15 percent of the entries as winners. 2008 is no different, though extremely competitive. A recordbreaking 5,500 entries were submitted and just a shade over 10 percent were honored with an embossed Award Certificate."

Circa 2000

It's hard to believe this photo is 8 years old! I really loved my Manic Panic© red hair. I kept this streak for over a year, I think until I finally covered it with a more natural tone of brownish red. This photo is from the first few days, but as it grew out, it actually looked even cooler. This photo is a little bright from the flash, but the color was actually very, very dark red...it blended kind of nice. I worked in the mall at the time and even little old ladies would tell me they liked my hair.

Anywho, Just thought I'd share my little jaunt down memory lane!
