In 2005, MORPC decided the make some changes to their Horizons Newsletter. I was part of the team that came up with the idea of moving to a magazine format, so that longer stories could be told.
I came up with the initial layout, designed the masthead, laid out the articles, and managed the text.
Funny story about this design:. Grey Ghost Games had asked for ideas for the dice bags they were producing. I spent a few minutes one afternoon, came up with this rough design, and sent it off to GGG. Several other people submitted logo designs, and the designs were discussed heavily on the Grey Ghost e-mail list. After a few weeks, no real decision had been made, and the topic was dropped.
A few months later, at Origins game convention, I stopped by on of the exhibitor’s booths, and found brand new dice bags printed with my design! I was floored, because no one had ever told me that they had used my design (I wasn’t upset). Later that day, I caught up with the Grey Ghost rep and asked about it. Apparently, the information on who designed which logo got lost, and Grey Ghost had to go ahead and print the bags for the con. As it ended up, I got a couple of free bags out of the deal (which I wasn’t expecting), and a cool story for my portfolio.
