I created, designed, edited, and copyedited the first ever print edition of Enculturation|Intermezzo — a refereed journal of rhetoric and culture. Conceptually, this was a difficult project.

Some of these tools allow you to upload pics or create schemes from scratch. I am currently working on a website for a local restaurant. The owner wants natural colors —mostly greens and browns. So I’ve been finding and creating food-flavored palettes. Here are are few that … Read More
