The Columbia Valley Weddings Magazine is an amazing resource of valley businesses who can help you create your dream wedding affordably – with a genuine rocky-mountain touch. Featuring a handful of wedding ‘trip reports’ based on a wedding concept, such as seasonal weddings, the magazine is full of helpful information and unique ideas.
Eggplant Studios has helped produce the Columbia Valley Weddings magazine for 2010, 2011 and 2012. For two of the three editions, Eggplant has been responsible for a complete redesign of the magazine – everything from styleguides to branding.
My responsibilities for each edition were art direction, advertising design, ad management and layout/production. We began by preparing advertising Rate Cards and E-mail newsletter graphics for the initial sales push, then moved on to advertising design and management, to finally the layout and production of the magazine.
Eggplant Studios worked closely with the Editor of Special Publications for layout and photo selection. Our close partnership, excellent communication and strong working relationship is evident in the final product.
Shawn’s Eggplant Studios graphic design skills and attention to detail has made our production process as seamless as it can be. The quality and relevance of his work demonstrates a solid understanding of the online market and trends. He pro-actively manages his time effectively.
From the initial conceptual meeting to the final upload of files to press, Shawn can be trusted to efficiently manoeuvre through each step to ensure nothing gets forgotten and each piece receives the attention the project demands for a successful outcome and a happy client.
