Everybody needs an editor

Next year Apple’s iPhone will turn 10. What a difference a decade can make! Websites lovingly built with Dreamweaver five years ago are looking like state-of-the-art kitchens from the 70s. Suddenly everybody needs a redesign.

STC’s Philadelphia Metro Chapter hired me to photograph its annual regional conference this past weekend. I also volunteered to upgrade the group’s print brochure, handing them something that isn’t quite so—well—technical.
