Natural Directions newsletter

Natural Directions newsletter redesign. Subscribe

Words are my first love (not counting, y’know, my kid and such), but I enjoy telling stories through lots of media. Sometimes that means learning them on my own, more often it means collaborating with designers, photographers, and videographers.

Projects and experiments I’ve led:

  • Redesign of Bastyr University’s recruiting newsletters
  • Nature Nearby: an interactive map
  • Psychology of climate change: A cartoon guide
  • Occasional photography, and much more selecting photos for tone and impact
  • Curating slideshows of submitted photos
  • Video: Fair Trade comes to Bloomington (an early effort!)
  • Redesigning static web pages informed by analytics and relying heavily on images (such as Bastyr’s Campus Traditions page)
  • Various radio appearances as a climate-change reporter
  • Twitter, Facebook, and other social media for source-finding, promoting work, and crowd-testing ideas (@jhiskes)
