If you are a dedicated follower of our Behind the Book blog, then you know how proud we are of each one of our students. For the past couple of years now, we have worked with volunteers and designers to create anthologies of all the work our students have done in order to showcase their achievements. Learn more about how our programs have evolved in the video below.
With everyone back with their glowing post-vacay smiles, BtB hosted a small party for those who have made the student books possible: our designers. With some traveling from as far as Chicago, (Fun fact: we even have a designer in London! – he couldn’t make it) our volunteer designers gathered for wine, snacks, and a meet and greet.
Grateful to have designers who have generously given up so much of their time into helping us construct our 2012-2013 student books, we couldn’t ask for a better group of people to work with, and are proud to display some of their work. (Below)
Working remotely throughout the year, Monday’s meeting was also a nice opportunity for the designers to socialize with the rest of the BtB staff, check out one another’s work, and get fired up about future books and programs for this year. “I really enjoyed seeing the variety of choices different designers made in their books – the fonts, colors, cover designs, and interior layouts – each person brought a lot of creativity,” Sara Reyolds, teaching artist for BtB, had to say about the gathering.

With so much creativity fluttering around us, we know we’ve got our best foot forward this year as we gear up for the start of our C.S. 21 program on September 20th. (More details to come.) But for now, we sing our praises to the lovely designers and volunteers, and thank you guys for continuing to help make Behind the Book‘s mission a reality.
