MY ROLE: ART PRODUCTION & PHOTO RETOUCHING
At Martha Stewart I worked as the Art Production Assistant with the Editor at Living and Creative Director of Books and Special Projects to organize assets for final print. Books and SP's I worked on include Encyclopedia of Sewing and Fabric Crafts, Cooking School, Martha Stewart Cupcakes, Halloween and Christmas Special Living issues and more.
I also worked with the photography retouching team and retouched and edited pages for Living Magazine, Weddings, and for the first Martha Stewart Living issue featured during the release of the iPad.
"In the magazine world, 2010 will be remembered as the year of the iPad. With its launch on April 1, the “savior” device paved the way for print-magazine art directors and designers to reinvent their publications — at warp speed. Each week, it seemed, a reimagined issue was ready for download. What I love about this cover is that it succeeds in slowing down that frenetic, mad-rush pace. The time-lapse video of a peony blooming was seamlessly stitched together from 180 stills shot over 10 hours and then compressed into 10 mesmerizing seconds: a feat of beauty and of technology"
