Landscape design

Several years ago I designed a brochure for a landscape designer named Mitzi van Sant. Mitzi is a really great person and very talented and very knowledgeable. We share a love of craftsman houses and that period's design sensibility. I had a really good time designing her brochure. It was my first solid design job after leaving the National Psoriasis Foundation and it was a lot more fun to work with beautiful photos of gardens and flowers than it was to work with photos of scaly skin.

A year or so later, we called Mitzi to help us redesign our yard, which was somewhat out of control. She came up with great ideas, a plan, plant lists and drawings for us, then she up and moved, from Portland, to Austin, Texas. We've stayed in touch and this week our garden debuted on her web site, "Grant Garden" is us. I feel like a celebrity!
