Selling adult reading programs can be a challenge. The demands of family, work, and day-to-day life can easily overpower leisure time that might be spent on reading, and finding the right marketing message to reach this busy audience can be tricky. Earlier this month we received a beautiful and thoughtful design submission from Stephanie Huff, Marketing & Communications Manager at the Wichita Public Library. Her poster and brochure designs highlight this year’s theme for WPL’s Adult Winter Reading Program, “Tour de Wichita: a reading journey,” which incorporates city sites and attractions. It’s a stellar example of community outreach and attractive design.
Happy New Year, everyone! 2015 has been a year of transition for April and I here at Librarian Design Share. Our jobs and responsibilities may have changed a bit in the last year, but our love of design continues, and so does Librarian Design Share. We can’t wait to see what amazing posters, displays, web designs, and other visually stunning materials you’ve been creating for your library! Over the next few months we’ll have new posts, new resources and recommendations, and a few surprises, too. We can’t wait to see where this new year takes us, and hope that your own journey is a happy one.
