seeing my designs in public

Recently, I redesigned the logo for KC Parent & KC Baby Magazine. Family Media Group launched the logo on the KC Parent Magazine with the September issue last month. They had sent me a mock-up of the magazine cover with the new logo prior to the release date, but seeing it in person had a whole different dimension to it. A couple weeks ago, I went to urgent care. In the waiting room, I saw the magazine. Just sitting in the magazine sorters like all the other magazines. I wanted to jump for joy, yell my excitement, tell the world that I designed that logo, but I restrained myself. Sitting there in the waiting room, I felt like a secret celebrity {albeit, I was the only person in the waiting room}. Thankfully, the short visit with the doctor was enough time to humble myself. But I still excitedly showed the magazine to my husband {and my mom a couple days later}. Now the October issue of KC Parent is out, but I haven’t yet had a chance to grab a copy of it.

October Issue of KC Parent Magazine

Yesterday, I was out doing some shopping at Babies R Us & there was the KC Baby Magazine with the new logo! It’s just so cool to see your designs in public! I grabbed a copy of it to flip through at home. The Art Director for KC Parent & KC Baby Magazine, who designed the covers of the magazines with the new logo, has also worked with the Editor to redesign the interior layout. And it keeps getting better with each issue!

KC Baby Magazine - doesn't that look great?
