Infographic: A year in review!

It's been a big year! Pat and I got married, traveled over 15,000 miles, and contributed to many events and programs that led thousands of students to faith in Jesus. We're grateful for your partnership in prayer and financial support this year, and for your friendship and support as we joined our lives together in marriage.

We're looking to reach our budget by the end of June by raising another $5,000. Would you prayerfully consider giving a one-time year-end gift, or begin a monthly gift as we start a new fiscal year?

Sometimes, pencil and paper works best

A current project I'm working on is an updated brochure for new staff to give to potential ministry partners who want to learn more about InterVarsity. The first part of my design process for a project like this is to think through how the text will be separated onto each spread, based on the content of the text. Once I've made a plan for that, I start sketching each spread and making an estimate of where the text will go and how it will work together with images and other elements. These sketches will be my guide as I work in the computer to actually lay this all out with the actual text and real images. Sometimes working with paper and pencil is a lot faster when you're in the initial stages of design!

Stay tuned for the final product by June or so.
