Up those stairs and to the left

I had the pleasure of working with David Herbick on a full-page illustration for the Summer 2012 issue of Stanford Social Innovation Review. The article details a study that looks at the growing trend towards hybrids- combinations of non-profit and for-profit organizations. The first example given in the article is the Hot Bread Kitchen in New York City; a bakery that sells breads made by immigrant women in the area, while at the same time helping them gain skills for management positions in the food industry.

 I wanted to show how the revenue generated by the for-profit side of the business helps these women advance their skills and career opportunities. Thank you, David!

As I'm sure you gathered from the image above, if your eyes are good enough to read the print, the article laments the probable downfall of the Blu-ray video format. Very sad for us movie buffs, as it is far superior in quality to DVDs and streamed movies. Combining the broken, discarded dics with the shape of a broken heart just felt right. The AD on this was the wonderful Christine Bower-Wright. Thanks again, Christine!
