Happy almost Halloween! This year I organized the 2nd Annual Great Pumpkin Contest for my department at work. Teams of 4-5 designers painted and decorated pumpkins. The entire company is voting for their favorite pumpkins and also bidding on them in an auction. The winning team gets to donate all the proceeds to a charity of their choice. Here is my team's entry. A two-sided edition from Where the Wild Things Are. Let the wild rumpus begin!

I've been designing all the collateral for an upcoming event in DC, the Breathe Deep 5k to raise money for lung cancer research and awareness. The pieces will be seen in the Washingtonian, The Washington Post, on posters and postcards around the city, and on the event t-shirts. I'm also designing all the the signage and banners for the event day.

We spent three great days last weekend hiking, driving, tasting cider, and scarfing ice cream in Northern Vermont for some peak season leaf peeping. We saw leaves, cows, and covered bridges and even saw a famous Vermonter—Jerry from Ben and Jerry's. Yes THE Jerry.
It's always a sign of a good place when I threaten to intentionally miss my flight and not return to DC—although these days it doesn't take much to make me threaten that. We were fortunate enough to get the last room at the Inn—the Green Mountain Inn. It was charming and everyone was so nice.
I ♥ Vermont.
