Thinking behind our Forth 2013 Yearbook / by Lisa Guillot

Forth Chicago Yearbook 2013I don't think it's a secret why Kelly, Julie and I work together so well. It's the combination of our creative skill sets: photography, writing and design. It's also because Kelly and Julie are amazing chefs. I am not, which is why I bring the Prosecco. And those two just make me a better person, and they are hilarious. Have you met them? You should. Friend them today. So what do you do with a photographer, writer and designer? Make a book. So we did!

Forth Chicago Yearbook thinkingOur goal for the magazine, as with most of our events, was to capture moments, conversations, reflections and sharing with friends old and new. Layering, details and transparency played a big role in our book from a design perspective. And you guys - our attendees! This book could have written itself. We were humbled by your insights and sharing throughout the year on our blog. Special excerpts and quotes fill the pages with thoughtful ideas on community, personal reflection and bonding with other women of influence. Networking? Forget it! We really saw how deep connections can bring together like-minded women to share through our community in this book. You can see the full magazine on Issuu here. Enjoy!
