Join me in a quick trip back to the summer of 2007. The phone rings: it’s Gil Shuler’s office, asking me if I’d like to interview some local folks for a piece they’re designing for the Charleston Regional Development Alliance. The goal? To show businesses around the country and around the world how wonderfully diverse and vibrant the Charleston professional landscape is and ultimately, entice them to bring their businesses here.
This is one of my favorite print pieces. Not just because Gil and Amy Pastre collaborated to create a piece that looks and feels like the best of the Holy City, (honored in the Communication Arts Design Annual) but also because I got the opportunity interview a diverse group of Charleston professionals, including chef Mike Lata from FIG and uber-architect Ray Huff.
