newsletter graphic design

I designed this newslet­ter for Nation­al­way, whom I worked for from 2004 — 2008. The job entailed the graph­ic design of the piece, choos­ing pho­tog­ra­phy, edit­ing the final doc­u­ment, and han­dling the print­ing and mail­ing to over 10,000 mem­bers. After work­ing on anoth­er mail project for the com­pa­ny, I quick­ly dis­cov­ered that it is more cost effec­tive at times to recruit the ser­vices of a com­pa­ny that spe­cial­izes in some­thing like mail­ing than try­ing to han­dle it all your­self.

This was a great project that offered many chal­lenges that I was able to suc­cess­ful­ly over­come.

About the author

Dwayne Casey I’ve start­ed design­ing web­sites while at Uni­ver­si­ty of Hous­ton dur­ing my first Pho­to­shop 3.1 expe­ri­ence in 1996 on a Mac­in­tosh com­put­er. I built my own com­put­ers (Win­dows PCs) with the help of a friend and have been dig­i­tal­ly involved ever since. I am both Win­dows and PC lit­er­ate but grav­i­tate toward OSX. I’ve grad­u­al­ly got­ten back to my roots as a tac­tile artist / design­er by work­ing more with tra­di­tion­al medi­ums like draw­ing, paint­ing, and mixed media.
