The Greenwich Historical Society preserves the history of Greenwich and inspires a spirit of discovery through educational programs and exhibits and encourages active participation in the preservation and interpretation of the Town’s past.
I've had an eight-year (and counting) relationship with the Greenwich Historical Society. i was hired by them to design a host of graphics, from printed event invitations, banners, posters, brochures, newsletters, email blasts, etc. for their many programs and exhibitions.
Later, i was asked to redesign their website and keep it updated. the time came that they needed to make their site mobile-friendly/responsive. i also added a content management system so they could make minor changes in-house.
I work with the Greenwich Historical Society on a daily basis. i relish the chance to meet with them in-person to strengthen the relationship and also i get to see their beautiful campus and amazing exhibitions and collections.
They are embarking on a big capital improvement to their campus and with it they are looking for a new look for their identity program. i look forward to working with them to implements that. i am cognizant of their branding and keep all the materials i produce in line with that, but feel i can still keep it fresh.
This bit in the book fascinated me: Hobos of old had a whole set of symbols which they’d carve on a nearby tree or post, that they used to advise other hobos if a business or home was friendly, provided food, had a mean dog, etc.
more to come...
