Descanso Gardens: Annual Report


For their first Annual Report, we really put the Descanso style guide to work, going big on everything the Gardens have to offer. Descanso is part non-profit and part guild, which means their books are always public, but the report helps give context to everything from where membership dollars go to how everything gets done and by whom, with a lot of face time for the people who make it happen.


I’ve worked with Heather on several projects for Descanso Gardens. There are many talented designers out there, but Heather’s services are next-level. Not only is she a talented creative professional, but she is able to see the big picture, and has helped us to focus our overall marketing strategy over the past six months. When we hire Heather, we know we are getting much more than a good-looking piece of collateral — we are getting her thoughtfulness and years of experience in brand messaging. Heather is professional and a pleasure to work with every step of the way, from her detailed written proposal to delivery of the final piece. Thanks, Heather!
