I will say that the people at the Fayette County chamber office
are super nice. I’m actually putting together the new tourism guide
but couldn’t gather any new event information. When I called they
were really friendly and got back to me quickly with new winter updates.
Plus, if I was not from here I would probably really like this area.
There’s a lot of cute things to do. Just avoid the mall area.
I’m finally getting around to mailing out my postcards to different
magazines and a couple friends. I used my collage piece “No Regrets”
for the first one.
I am living back in the town where I grew up. There is not much around
except a mall, the usual chain restaurants and bars. I only expected
to make a pit stop here on the way to Pittsburgh but ended up getting
a job at the local publishing firm. Now I’m in Uniontown and I go back
and forth between here and the city. I am still planning on moving to
Pittsburgh in the spring because this place reminds me how towns like
this stay the same. Small towns are nice to visit for a day but they are
not the ideal place where I want to call home.
The place I work for does some of the local publications, one being the
Fayette County Fair. I grew up going to this fair and can remember the
time I spent there. It was a great place to catch up with your friends
and eat a lot of crappy food while smelling the farm animals. So
here is my attempt to bring a little design to Uniontown. I just got
the magazine in my hands the other day.
Copy of the Magazine:
The interior pages are a lot more ads than content. I wanted to focus
on the cover and make it feel an old fashion poster. The funny thing is
I passed their billboard and we used the same type face. I liked
how it turned out and it’s nice to do design work for this fair that has
been around for such a long time.
