This was a cover for a story on shopping centers in Orange County that cater to parents with young children. The story package was interesting and relevant to our target audience, but it lacked any cover art. I created the illustration of the shopping mom with tons of bags hanging from her stroller and designed the remaining elements on the page to interact with each other.

THE NEWSPAPER CUT TO FIT YOUR LIFE
OC POST Santa Ana, Calif. Aug. 30, 2007 OC POST is a daily tabloid publication of The Orange County Register. It has a circulation of 30,000 growing daily. This is one of the health pages that I designed daily before the POST cut back on content pages. With the health page we are often left with out art, this page was no exception. For the main package I used an archive photo of spinach fields and cut out the background. For the top rail story I pulled the photo of the pregnant woman from a free stock art site and wrapped the text around her belly. Emily Lawrence emilymargaretm @gmail.com

Another recall of fresh spinach
HEALTH BITS A NEW RISK Gestational ●
diabetes may be associated with increased risk for pancreatic cancer, the New York Times reported. A study by New York University researchers found that as a pregnancy progresses, the action of insulin is blocked because of weight gain and the release of certain hormones. Most women can compensate with increased secretions of insulin, but in the U.S., about 7% become diabetic for the duration of pregnancy.
California produce company recalled bagged fresh spinach Wednesday after it tested positive for salmonella. There were no immediate reports of illness linked to the tainted spinach, distributed by Metz Fresh LLC of King City. The recall comes nearly a year after an outbreak of another pathogen, E. coli, in fresh spinach killed three people and sickened 200 others. The recalled spinach was dis-
tributed throughout the lower 48 states and Canada and sold in retail and food service packages. It covers 8,118 cases of spinach, although the company said more than 90% of that was on hold and would not be released. Last year’s E. coli outbreak prompted the Food and Drug Administration to warn Americans not to eat fresh bagged spinach. It later lifted that warning after tracing the contamination to spinach processed and packed by Natural Selection Foods LLC in San Juan Bautista, Calif. > AP
Recall facts The recall covers 1 0- and 1 6-ounce bags, as well as 4-pound cartons and cartons that contain four 2.5-pound bags, with tracking codes 1 2208 1 1 4, 1 22082 1 4 and 1 220831 4. You can contact Metz Fresh at 831 -386-1 0 1 8.

PRISON INFECTIONS The union ●
representing California prison guards says dozens of staff at Folsom Prison have tested positive for staph infections this year – including a potentially deadly strain – and the infections are spreading rapidly. Guards, a prison dentist and doctor have tested positive for Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus, or MRSA, a highly contagious strand that’s often resistant to medication, the union says. Scott Unger, spokesman for the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, said the state cannot confirm the union’s statistics, but has confirmed 35 cases of MRSA among Folsom inmates in 2007. Twenty of those cases have come since June. > AP
ANOTHER GENDER GAP Weight loss may be associated with the onset of dementia in women, but not in men, the New York Times reported. A study published in the Aug. 2 1 issue of Neurology found that women destined to have dementia began to lose weight relative to the control group 1 1 to 20 years before dementia’s onset. But there was no difference in men. ●
Cigarette packs sold in the U.K. will be required next year to display graphic images of diseased organs in a bid to scare smokers into quitting the habit, the British government announced Wednesday.

Asthma control needs a daily regimen Patients and doctors should pay more attention to asthma sufferers’ day-to-day symptoms, not just their severe attacks. Some 22 million Americans have asthma, and guidelines updated Wednesday by the National Institutes of Health stress the importance of adjusting therapy until their asthma is under control. The guidelines reflect a shift already under way, as specialists teach patients that a flare-up isn’t the only sign of trouble. Someone who avoids an attack by giving up exercise, or thinks it’s normal to wake up at night coughing, doesn’t have asthma controlled. Asthma hospitalizations peak in September and October, said Dr. Homer Boushey of UC San Francisco, a co-author of the guidelines. > AP
> COURTESY CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL OF O.C.
Guidelines ● Give your doctor details about day-to-day symptoms. ● Have a written “action plan” with instructions for daily treatment and what to do is asthma worsens. Share it with teachers and coaches. ● Inhaled corticosteroids are the foundation of preventive treatment for all ages. Patients also need inhaled rescue medication.

Lovin’ the Lotus position
Squeeze OC was a weekly magazine published by Freedom Specialty Media Orange County. Over the past year I have been lucky enough to freelance for the Squeeze OC. Sadly the print product was recently folded in an effort to cut costs company wide. I have really enjoyed every page I was able to design for the magazine. This is one of my favorites. “Joy Ride” was an ongoing feature on peoples “cool” cars. I was inspired by the featured Lotus and used it’s color and modern lines on the page. I played off the contrast of the rules and the sleek shape of the car. Emily Lawrence emilymargaretm @gmail.com
Joy Ride is a monthly feature that’s all about the love we have for cars. Every month, we profile a different local and his or her treasured ride – be it a sleek new sports car or a restored classic – the vehicle lovingly, passionately maintained for joy rides, not commutes.
CHONG PAK, 31, Buena Park
His ride: A saffron-yellow 2005 Lotus Elise Year purchased: August 2006 Behind the wheel: Pak, an industrial design instructor at The Art Institute of California-Orange County, found the car advertised for sale at elisetalk.com, an online forum for Lotus Elise owners and enthusiasts. Pak, who holds a bachelor’s degree in transportation design from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, chose the sleek two-seater because it’s “not like everything on the road.” Only 2,4 1 7 Lotus sports cars were sold in the United States in 2005, according to Automotive News, and the saffron color has since been discontinued, Pak says. Unlike most vehicles, the British sports car is built by hand, not robots. Performance perks: Some argue that the lightweight roadster, which
retails new for around $46,000, isn’t worth the money, he says. The car may not have a lot of bells and whistles, but its performance and handling make it worth three times its price, he contends. Under the hood: Pak takes the car to a local mechanic for maintenance and repairs, but many Lotus owners he knows do basic maintenance themselves. The Lotus has a four-cylinder, 1 90-horsepower Toyota engine, which makes routine maintenance like oil changes easy, Pak says. First car: A “conservative” 1 990 Honda Accord coupe. Also in the garage: 1 99 1 Mitsubishi Montero, which he likes for its “oldschool SUV look.” Favorite cruise: “PCH has always been fun when it’s not so packed. I’d love the opportunity to take it in the mountains and drive the curvy roads. That’s this car’s sweet spot – curvy roads.”

The day after the elections I was supposed to be attending a conference on Media and Crisis Preparedness. Half way through the conference my adviser was eating lunch with me and told me that Rumsfeld had resigned. He was scheduled to give a lecture at our school the next day which gave a us a rare opportunity to localize a huge national situation. I worked with our Landon Lecture reporter to come up with the layout for this page. We split the stories into a precede for the lecture and one on Rumsfeld’s retirement with a refer box to all the related coverage inside. I also put together the time line to add a graphic element to the package. Emily Lawrence emilymargaretm @gmail.com

Rumsfeld resigns, lectures at K-State
U.S. Secretary of Defense gives resignation
Rumsfeld will present Landon Lecture despite resignation
By Adrianne DeWeese KANSAS STATE COLLEGIAN
U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld resigned Wednesday after several years of heavy criticism. President Bush said he had a series of thoughtful conversations with Rumsfeld about the resignation. Bush also said Rumsfeld’s resignation was not affected by the outcome of Tuesday’s elections, in which the Democrats gained control of the U.S. House of Representatives. On Nov. 1, Bush said he wanted Rumsfeld and Vice President Dick Cheney to remain with him through the end of his presidency. “Both those men are doing fantastic jobs, and I strongly support them,” Bush said in an interview with The Associated Press. Ben Davis, president of College Republicans, said he was not shocked at Rumsfeld’s resignation. “I personally thought the same thing — I thought it was time for a change and new perspective,” said Davis, junior in political science and pre-law. “It’s time for a better perspective on the war in Iraq and trying to work toward that goal more effectively.” Members of College Republicans are planning to attend Rumsfeld’s Landon Lecture today, Davis said. “I’m thinking that everyone in the school would want to go whether you agree or not,” he said. “It’s a

I hope that everyone would want to come and learn, regardless of political affiliations.” Aaron Apel, president of Young Democrats, said some of the club’s members got tickets for the lecture and plan to ask Rumsfeld questions. Young Democrats also plan to protest about an hour prior to the lecture, he said. “It’s an honor to have someone like Donald Rumsfeld come to KState and speak,” Apel, junior in
philosophy said. “But there are a lot of questions we have concerning accountability on his actions taken in Iraq.” Bush nominated Robert Gates Wednesday afternoon to replace Rumsfeld. A Wichita native, Gates, 63, served as Director of Central Intelligence from 1991 to 1993. He has served as the 22nd president of Texas A&M University since August 2002.
