In 2011, US Quidditch (then called the International Quidditch Association) had a logo, but no other branding. I developed a look and feel for USQ that was codified in brand guidelines and used throughout a variety of print and web materials, both designed by me and used by a team of volunteer designers.

The kirtle was one of the foundation garments for women of all stations throughout the middle ages. Making this dress was a new experience for me in several ways. It was my first time drafting an entire pattern, with the help of Sarah Thursfield’s Medieval Tailor’s Assistant, which I’ve had for several years but have never used. It took two iterations to get the bodice block right, and after that was done, construction of the dress went pretty smoothly. The kirtle is made of navy linen, with the bodice lined with heavier natural linen. I didn’t have time to make more period-correct eyelets instead of grommets (and didn’t have time to cover all the grommets with thread before leaving for the festival!) but I don’t mind the look. My next step for this project is to make a contrasting-color sideless surcoat, which goes over the kirtle. I’ve even already got the red linen.
Thanks to my friend Michelle for the pictures!
I used a pattern for a 1903 corset and skirt, and improvised the bodice.
I facilitated the HPA’s first strategic planning process, and designed the final document.
I spearheaded the creation of a quarterly donor newsletter for the Harry Potter Alliance, called the “W.A.N.D” – Wizard Activist News Dispatch. I served as the editor in chief, assigning, editing, and writing articles, and designed the interior of each issue. I also worked with the printer to approve proofs and coordinate mailing.
I did the copywriting and design for this donation remittance envelope.
