City of Wichita Parks and Recreation Department

Fall 2011 Activites Guide

About This Project

What I Did:

  • Photographer
  • Lighting
  • Prop Director
  • Graphic Designer


This was a quite ambitious project.  The City of Wichita Parks and Recreation department decided that it was time do change the formatting of their seasonal activities guide from a newspaper format to a magazine style format.  For decades they used that newspaper layout so not everyone was thrilled with the daunting task of a whole new re-design.

I, on the other hand, was very excited!  I almost could not believe it when they approached me to design the cover.  Thousands of people would see not only my graphic design skills but also my photography skills.  So the pressure was on!  It was a blast shooting the cover at Boston Recreation gym!  Although the layout went through several concept revisions we finally landed on this concept. The City of Wichita loved it and the patrons of the Parks and Recreation department were very pleased with the new format.  Overall a big risk with a successful outcome!
