Small note: the ad at the bottom of the section is one of my NKJV clients! I did his gnome logo, the ad, t-shirts, and his social media graphics.
As a graphic designer in small-town, rural Nebraska, there aren't too many opportunities to win design awards. So when there is, I sure jump on it.
In August of 2016 I started working at the Sidney Sun-Telegraph as the Advertising Designer, then became the Design Editor in 2017. It has been such a great experience to expand my field of graphics to newspaper design and layout. I can honestly say, I absolutely love my job.
Every year there is a contest for Nebraska Newspapers. Last year was the first time I was able to submit for the contest. I didn't even get on the board. But this year, I was more prepared and had a full year of work to choose from and I finally got on the board! I got 2nd place in the Community Section, and I've gotta tell ya, I am beyond excited to even be listed next to some of these submissions!! Some of these ads that won are amazing!
