Designing an Author’s 1-sheet

maryfran1sheetskaI’m working on a 1-sheet for my friend, author Mary Fran Bontempo, who is happily doing more and more speaking and seminar gigs.  A 1-sheet is like a resume that is both promotional and informative, and is fast becoming a necessary printed piece for writers, lecturers, performers and others who make public speaking appearances.

We still have some editing to do, and we will also do a back page advertising Mary Fran’s two books, but here’s the front of the 1-sheet at this point.  I picked up the color scheme from her website (which I drew the illustration for), and some photos from stills of a TV interview she did.
