Sipping with Smoth started out as a fun, weekly column in the Gazette that Cameron "Smoth" Smith, former Gazette Editor took from his online blog. It was a drinking blog where Smoth would review different types of alcohol he had come across. Eventually it became so much more than that as he and I teamed up for nearly 30 different graphics for his column. I put as many as I could in this portfolio because they were so much fun to do and never felt like work. I attempted to make each one have its own specific design and was to be used specifically for that review. In a world where we so often use the same template over and over again for weekly or daily columns, Sipping with Smoth really stands out to me and I think to Smoth himself as well. I've continued to work with Smoth even after he left the Gazette as he has started his own blog "Sublime Imbibing" which I helped design.
