Anita Cochran Benefit Concert

My friend and old boss from Country Weekly, Lisa Konicki, asked me to design a poster to promote a fundraising benefit concert for professional guitarist Anita Cochran. Anita had been diagnosed with breast cancer in 2017.

It was a great honor to contribute to this event. The copy of the printed poster that I have was signed by all of the amazing artists that performed at the show.

Anita is a cancer survivor and is back performing again. She released the song “Fight Like a Girl” about her battle with cancer and continues to work to help others fight cancer.

Country Weekly Magazine

My work at Country Weekly is primarily related to the website, but I frequently have the opportunity to collaborate with the Art Director on design critique, technical problem solving and even helping meet tight production deadlines by designing page layouts.
