The Client |

FanimeCon is Northern California’s largest anime convention, and is proud to be produced “By Fans, For Fans”. Packed with nonstop video programming, extraordinary costumes, music, games, tournaments, panels, and renowned international guests, this annual celebration of Japanese art and popular culture entertains a colorful spectrum of fans and friends.

The Solution |

After answering a craigslist.org job listing to design a program guide, I was contracted on a Pro Bono basis. Armed with past program issues, the main focus was to improve on the readability and organization and flow of content. Collaboration on the book was completed online or via telephone. I delivered an engaging, cutting edge, and collectible souvenir for Anime and Manga fans.
