Too bad there’s no human-made device or fossil fuel that spins off as much energy as Bonnie Bing. She’s truly a marvel. One of the more amazing feats to behold is how Bonnie coordinates the always-spiffy spring, fall and holiday fashion sections for The Eagle.
Today, you can find the results of her work in the spring fashion section in the newspaper and on our web site. More than a month ago, Bonnie began brainstorming with our extraordinary page designer (and filmmaker in his spare time) Rod Pocowatchit to come up with a section that combines traditional photographs with hand-drawn illustration. Take a look at Rod’s video to see how he did it.
Photographer Mike Hutmacher’s photos were the starting point, and will give you a good idea of what to look for in spring fashion trends. (You can see Mike’s full professional portolio here.)
Coordinating this project is a daunting feat. Take a look at Bonnie’s recipe for how to create a fabulous fashion section.
And keep in mind that at the same time, she’s juggling other responsibilities for the paper and a multitude of civic commitments. (The photo above, via my Treo, is Bonnie charging across The Eagle’s parking lot after a planning meeting for "The Wichita Eagle Divine Makeover" event she coordinates with Dress for Success.)
Go, Bon, go. Nice work on the spring fashion coverage.
