Horn Book at Simmons Colloquium


The Horn Book



The Horn Book at Simmons colloquium is an annual event that honors the winners of the Boston Globe—Horn Book Awards. Winners are chosen in three categories: picture book, fiction and poetry, and nonfiction. The colloquium features speeches from the winning authors and illustrators for an audience of librarians, educators, children's literature professionals, students, and writers. 2016's event was themed "Out of the Box," as a nod to The Horn Book's blog of the same name and a reflection of the honorees whose books transcended genre lines.

As the designer for the event, I created the logo, coded and designed the webpages and emails, and designed the programs for the event. There was also a suite of digital and print ads to promote the event online and in magazines.
