Print Writing and Design

Web development includes writing and design for online audiences and the information I have written, compiled, designed, etc. for the web is included under the Web Development section.

These days, almost everything created in print is offered online as well. If available, the print materials listed below include a link to an online PDF file so that you can view them.

Before the conference,I developed the website to include abstracts and logisitcal information. I also provided the design for the program, Book of Abstracts [pdf], signs (sample sign), and more. After the conference, I replaced the website with the CODATA 2002 Conference Proceedings. (Note: I did not design the logo for this conference.)

I designed the logo, website, factsheet, program, badges, workshop proceedings, and other online and print materials for the FIrst International CODATA Africa Workshop in Dakar, Senegal, 19-21 July 2000. I served as the lead person for organizing this workshop. Details are on the Event Planning page.

From 1984-2000, I worked at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). While there, I served in a number of roles. Initially, I was an Editorial Assistant in the development of the NIST Calibrations and NIST Standard Reference Materials catalogs. Because this was before desktop publishing, I learned how to paste galleys, proofread, and perform other editorial tasks as assigned, including meeting with Government Printing Office staff to review galley proofs and resolve issues. I was also frequently asked to design PowerPoint presentations for high level personnel at NIST, including presentations to be given before Congress.

Around the year 1989 until the end of 2000, I worked in the Standard Reference Data Program and brought my writing and design skills to their PowerPoint presentations, flyers, brochures, catalogs, database user manuals, help sessions, and more. I developed the layout for all of the Standard Reference Data databases. One example of the many database user guides I helped to develop is here:

And here are some general writing and design projects I have worked on:
