n the four hundred and eightieth year after the Israelites had come out of Egypt, in the fourth year of Solomon’s reign over Israel, in the month of Ziv, the second month, he began to build the temple of the LORD. The temple that King Solomon built for the LORD was sixty cubits long, twenty wide and thirty high. The portico at the front of the main hall of the temple extended the width of the temple, that is twenty

cubits, and projected ten cubits from the front of the temple. He made narrow clerestory windows in the temple. Against the walls of the main hall and inner sanctuary he built a structure around the building, in which there were side rooms. The lowest floor was five cubits wide, the middle floor six cubits and the third floor seven. He made offset ledges around the outside of the temple so that nothing would be inserted into the temple walls. In building the temple,

only blocks dressed at the quarry were used, and no hammer, chisel or any other iron tool was heard at the temple site while it was being built. The entrance to the lowest floor was on the south side of the temple; a stairway led up to the middle level and from there to the third. So he built the temple and completed it, roofing it with beams and cedar planks. 10 And he built the side rooms all along the temple. The height of each was five cubits, and they were

attached to the temple by beams of cedar. The word of the LORD came to Solomon: “As for this temple you are building, if you follow my decrees, carry out my regulations and keep all my commands and obey them, I will fulfill through you the promise I gave to David your father. And I will live among the Israelites and will not abandon my people Israel.” So Solomon built the temple and completed it. He lined its interior walls with cedar boards, paneling

And I will live among the Israelites and will not abandon my people Israel.” So Solomon built the temple and completed it. He lined its interior walls with cedar boards, paneling

He partitioned off twenty cubits at the rear of the temple with cedar boards from floor to ceiling to form within the temple an inner sanctuary, the Most Holy Place.

the inner sanctuary. In the inner sanctuary he made a pair of cherubim of olive wood, each ten cubits high. One wing of the first cherub was five cubits long, and the other wing five cubits—ten cubits from wing tip to wing tip. The second cherub also measured ten cubits, for the two cherubim were identical in size and shape. The height of each cherub was ten cubits. He placed the cherubim inside the innermost room of the temple, with their wings spread out. The wing of one cherub touched one wall, while the wing of the other touched the other wall, and their wings touched each other in the middle of the room. He overlaid the cherubim with gold. On the walls all around the temple, in both the inner and outer rooms, he carved cherubim, palm trees and open flowers. He also covered the floors of both the inner and outer

rooms of the temple with gold. For the entrance of the inner sanctuary he made doors of olive wood with five-sided jambs. And on the two olive wood doors he carved cherubim, palm trees and open flowers, and overlaid the cherubim and palm trees with beaten gold. In the same way he made four-sided jambs of olive wood for the entrance to the main hall. He also made two pine doors, each having two leaves that turned in sockets. He carved cherubim, palm trees and open flowers on them and overlaid them with gold hammered evenly over the carvings. And he built the inner courtyard of three courses of dressed stone and one course of trimmed cedar beams. The foundation of the temple of the LORD was laid in the fourth year, in the month of Ziv.

Women In Distress Annual Report: The annual report for 2011-2012 was creatively concepted, designed, photographed (with the exception of a few stock photos) and partially written by me. I used the agency’s signature red, complimented by a dark and a light blue as well as a green-yellow to give the report a fresh look. The full report can be viewed at: http://bit.ly/QY14Rh 8x8 booklet

Morikami’s Astellas Program Booklet: The Stroll for Well-being program at Morikami is a therapeutic garden walking program funded by the Astellas foundation. This tiered booklet serves as an informational guide for counseling and therapy groups that might be interested in the program. I used photography of the gardens as well as the natural color scheme to bring a sense of calm to the entire piece. 6x6 tiered booklet

Morikami Family Fun Days Bookmark: For this year’s Family Fun Day schedule the Education Department decided to stick with a bookmark format, but wanted something distinctly Morikami for the imagery. So, I illustrated our founder, George Sukeji Morikami, and his faithful companion Inu. The front has a brief history about George, while the back lists the activity dates. 2.5x7 bookmark

Morikami E-blast Header: As part of the Membership Department’s August sale, I created this header for our monthly e-newsletter. I used bright colors to grab the readers’ attention, as well as a few details about the sale, and a strong call to action. This sale was very successful, and the email had a 28.6% open rate with 563 clicks to the membership sale landing page.

Morikami Oshogatsu Festival T-shirts: Morikami’s annual New Year’s celebration, Oshogatsu, draws up to 10,000 people in one day to celebrate the Japanese New Year. In 2014, for the year of the horse, I designed these two shirts with traditional Japanese New Year symbols such as the horse, Daruma and Shishi Mai, and they were individually printed for guests by a local live screen printer.

Morikami.org Responsive Web Re-Design: When I found that 50% of Morikami’s web traffic was coming from mobile and tablet users, we decided it was time to move to a responsive site. This saved time and money on a mobile site or an application, because the responsive site reconfigures and selects content based on browser width. I managed the entire process from concepting and approving a visual layout, to working with key staff members to design contd. ͢

Morikami.org Contd.: the navigation and internal pages. The result is a more mobile-friendly site that is beautiful on a smartphone, tablet, or desktop screen. The site features an integrated e-commerce store, which was not the case before, an integrated version of Morikami’s blog, which was a separate wordpress site before, and much more. www.morikami.org
