Chamber Membership Directory 2016

ChamberCover2016_sm I enjoy working on the Naperville Chamber of Commerce Membership Directory because it constantly challenges me to try something new. Every year I have to find a unique way to photograph people and locations that I might have already photographed dozens of times for previous publications. For this year’s cover I found myself on the roof of a parking garage, hanging over the edge in an attempt to get a nice sunset shot with the Carillon bell tower in the background. It had to be the perfect time of day so that car headlights were on, but the sun hadn’t disappeared behind the horizon yet. ChamberDir2016_sm Every time I think we’ve used up all of the good ideas I manage to come up with another one. I’m sure next year’s will have something to do with the new Water Street project. You can find the Membership Directory all over Naperville. And it’s available at the Chamber offices too.

Community First Medical

community-first-medical-Matt_small Community First Medical Center in Chicago is a newly rebranded hospital that was in desperate need of improving their online presence. Working in conjunction with Culloton Strategies, Catherine created a consistent brand guide and designed each page of their new website. community-first-medical-Header_small All the photography was done by Jeffrey (and styled by Catherine) over a four day shoot schedule. Soon we’ll be adding some video elements and doctor interviews that we captured, using the talents of editor Matt Rice. community-first-medical-story-small Hair and makeup for the staff and patients was done by Christine Stahl. And a big thank you to Andrew Touhy and Steve Hamilton at Culloton for being so great to work with through this whole redesign project.
