RMNP Natural History Handbook

RMNP Natural History Handbook

This is an update on the first edition. I was able to update the design a bit and insert as many new photos as possible. There were many very exacting reviewers for this project. We had several rounds of revisions. Happy to say, everyone is still friends, and the book looks great!

Lil’ MacDonald Likes to Hike!

This is a fun children’s book. Lots of color, texture and room for creativity. We didn’t have an unlimited budget, so a few steps were taken to make sure the project came in affordable. The imagery was mostly stock. I added colors and texture to add interest. The paw prints and frames give the book a childlike interest. The Fun Facts were established to help break up the text.

The Complete Hiking Guide to Rocky Mountain National Park

The Complete Hiking Guide to Rocky Mountain National Park

Lisa Foster’s hiking guide illustrates and discusses every trail in RMNP, even those not found on the RMNP official map, but  can be found on USGS or National Geographic maps of the area. This title is in it’s 6th revision as of August 2013. A 2nd edition is due out 2015 when RMNP celebrates is 100th anniversary. There are also several smaller eBooks created for this title focusing on specific topics: Kid-Friendly Hikes, Hikes Under 3 miles, Technical Hikes, and Long’s Peak specifically. This book is crammed with so much information, my challenge was to get the reader to a specific hike or area efficiently, incorporating maps and images to illustrate the trail.

Cimarron the Bighorn Sheep

Cimarron the Bighorn Sheep

Cimarron illustrates the growth of a bighorn sheep for it’s first year. Each season has it’s own challenges. As a designer, I was pulling text and illustrations for two different sources. Many times the illustrations needed to be slightly altered to accommodate the text. Flowers, birds, rocks, and mountains  changed color, size, and shape to allow for more legible text.
