What Lisa's been up to, September edition

Another busy month for the staff here at LHD&E. The first thing I did was a new site design for Alert Chicago, a site for residents of Chicago that helps them get ready, respond, and recover from local emergencies. The challenge with this site design is that there was so much information that needed to be represented, including different dynamic news feeds. I incorporated different photos from the city on a seven-column grid to give the site enough space to breathe, while being navigable.

Next, I did a design for Dr. Lauren Streicher's personal site. Dr. Streicher is perhaps one of the best-known OB-GYNs in the country with an absolutely amazing career. As well as her practice, she is a book author, XM Satellite Radio host, Chicago Sun-Times columnist, host of iVillage's In The Loop, and frequent contributor to Good Morning America and Chicago's CBS affiliate. She's also wonderful in that she takes otherwise taboo/scary topics regarding women's health and invites discussion. It was truly inspiring to work with her.

I built a site for Ridgeline Capital Partners. The site is currently staged on my site, but is launching soon. The beautiful design was done by Amanda Hellman of Blue Print Design Group.

Lastly, I wrote an article on design for the book industry for HOW magazine. Obviously, a topic I know a lot about. I got to talk to some really interesting designers from Picador, HarperCollins, Quirk, and (of course) Chronicle. Read it here.
