The Making of Milwaukee

Working with Jim Price, of Market Engineers, I acted as production manager and second-chair designer for many time-sensitive projects, including company histories by Milwaukee historian John Gurda. Among them: Miller Time: A History of Miller Brewing Company 1855–2006; Forging Ahead: A Centennial History of Ladish Co.; Built by Seaman: Four Generations of Family Enterprise; and John’s 1999 classic, The Making of Milwaukee. John is the most thorough of authors. His books usually take years of research. Working with archivists, he produces manuscripts that come with folders and thumb drives full of images, their placement precisely noted in the text. Jim has helped me learn to design “outside the box,” as well as master the arts of color correction and press checks.
