My Local Cooperative
An initiative to teach students about career opportunities within cooperatives. My role was developing the visual assets to help teachers illustrate the lessons for their students.

PHOTOGRAPHY & VIDEOGRAPHY, WRITING
I worked with cooperatives across the United States to gather career profiles in video and static form. Sometimes this meant building a relationship with the marketing team at a cooperative, sometimes it meant phone interviews, and sometimes it meant hopping on a plane and capturing the footage.
Although I usually work solo, this project was a great example of a time when I brought in another talented creator to help. The talented Sabrina Jacobs shot some of our on-location video. You can check her out at sjacobscreative.
The end result was 52 profiles – one for each week of the year – featuring a different career opportunity within an agricultural cooperative.
GRAPHIC DESIGN, WRITING
I designed a book to be used with the career profiles and My Local Cooperative lessons that was distributed in hard copy and electronically.

Co-Op In a Box
The MLC project wanted boxes they could send to teachers who were teaching the My Local Cooperative lessons. They wanted the kits to include teaching tools and a few treats as thank-you’s to the teachers. With just that description and a budget, I designed and put together all the components for this box that has been sent to more than 450 teachers across the United States.
