recent work: buffalo exchange zine
about a week ago, my last day was at one of the best jobs i’ve had- working for buffalo exchange. i’ve been commuting for just over 2 years, 3-4 hours a day, 5 days a week. six months ago i had my son and i realize the monetary cost, as well as the time it took to commute, just wasn’t working anymore. i was exhausted all of the time, plus not getting any time to just live and work on anything other than my job. i’ll miss working there, but hope this new situation will allow me to pursue some of the projects I’ve been hoping to work on.
on a brighter note though- one of that last projects i worked on at buffalo exchange was the first issue of their zine. It was a great experience collaborating with a number of folks at buffalo exchange and arizona lithographers. i also got some experience working in web-fed press, which was a very interesting process. it was especially interesting due to the nature of it’s cmyk adjustments. this process has a dial for each color that you hand turn to adjust each color separately after looking at a print that comes out of the machine. very cool- if you every get the experience. here’s the result —- ZINE —- (it’s in issuu, which cannot be embedded in wordpress, unless you are self hosted).
it was great working at buffalo exchange. i initially started out running their e-commerce site. while i ran their e-commerce site, we used eBay as our primary platform. within the last three years i worked in both the marketing department and expansion department. for the last year i was working in the expansion department, but often getting a chance to work and collaborate on other projects within the company, such as the print materials for their end of year parties, setting up buffaloexchangefashion.com (buffalo exchange’s blog), and most recently the zine.
