Selling Charleston to businesses

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.

  1. Thanks for the shout out, Jenny – it’s still one of my favorite pieces, too, and I use it frequently. It really captures the diversity and creativity of the place we are lucky enough to live. Nice work!
