I've started many blogs in my life only to abandon them a few weeks in, but it seems this one might stick around for a while. I've already had some great new opportunities and made some great new friends and contacts through The 'burbs & the beers, and I'm looking forward to seeing it continue to grow. Plus, it's great to have this creative outlet and somewhere to share my adventures.
So, I asked my friend Jess Keefer to help me make it look a little prettier around here. What do you think of the new look?
As long as I have known Jess, she has produced inspired art and photography that seems to make the world look prettier. She's placed third for the past two years in the annual juried gig poster show at our local art gallery, The RMG (one of my favourite spots here in the 'burbs!). It's been so great to see her develop her skills over the past few years through Durham College's Graphic Design program (yes, she is still a student believe it or not!).
Jess nailed this project with very little direction (I was like, "I duno, like a bottle label or something maybe?"). To view more of Jess's work, check out her Facebook page, Design by Jess Keefer. She's available for freelance work just like this!
