The Charleston area has been the subject of some fantastic press lately. Named one of the Best Places in the Southeast to Retire by The Wall Street Journal. Profiled in The New York Times “36 Hours In..” series. And, randomly, in Travel + Leisure’s List of America’s Most and Least Attractive Cities. (Sorry, Santa Fe, times are tough.)
Those of us who live here know the magic of this place. How it can leave even the most jaded souls gob-smacked and struggling for description. We don’t mind. It’s a rather nice problem to have.
With all that said, here’s the latest ad for the town of Mount Pleasant for the South Carolina Vacation Guide. Design by Mark Lawrence from Gil Shuler Graphic Design; copy by me.

I’ll admit it. I didn’t know what to wear to the 2010 Charleston ADDY Awards. The theme was rock ‘n roll, which to me means basically, anything goes. And, this being the creative community and all, well, anything goes anyway. I winged it.
For the record, I think Mark Lawrence from GSGD had the most fantastic seventies rock ‘n roll legend coat EVER. N’est-ce pas?
Twas an evening of reconnecting with friends (much love, KV!), colleagues, creativity, good energy and several social drinks. I must give abundant thanks to Gil Shuler for asking me to write the Anson House Sales Kit, which took home a gold. And, as ever, many, many thanks to my comrades in arms at Blue Ion. I had the great pleasure of writing for several of their winning websites: Kristin Newman Designs, Newbury, EQA Landmark Communities and Madaktari.
Congrats to all the winners…and to everyone…the work was truly exceptional. Thanks, Charleston. Some evenings you just especially rock.
