Your City Newsletter

Project Description

Newsletter Graphic Design

Beaverton asked me to update the look of Your City, one of the city’s primary communication tools. The high-profile newsletter is mailed to 65,000 households every other month, conveying important news, events and information to the Beaverton community.

The redesigned Your City features a new masthead, clean and cohesive layout, and updated graphics to reflect the Beaverton brand. Our clients are happy about the newsletter’s strong brand and metrics, and love hearing compliments from readers on the professional new look. I have enjoyed helping Beaverton tell its story and raise the city’s profile locally, regionally, and beyond.

Building on the successful new design, I have produced 25 regular issues of Your City to date, and a number of special event inserts and key publications based on the updated style: Beaverton’s 2015-16 Annual Report and Fiscal Year in Review. Other creative projects include signature publications, posters, displays, advertisements and flyers.


“Congratulations on an excellent edition of YOUR CITY – probably the most professional I’ve seen – great content and picture quality. Really a great job.”
Christy Herr, City of Beaverton Office of the Mayor
“The city newsletter is looking really good! Thanks for all your great work!”
Bill LaMarche, City of Beaverton Public Information Manager
