The local South Milwaukee community Bridges Magazine was launched literally the week the COVID pandemic hit in March of 2020. The publisher, a small business owner herself, offered to design a special magazine that highlighted all of the small businesses who would be impacted by the pandemic by printing ads for them for free. Since we had several clients and knew fellow SMCBA members that would be affected by the shutdowns, we designed several ads for this special edition. Since then, the publisher liked our work so much that she’s hired us to photograph several covers and inset story photos for the magazine, along with designing ads for future editions. The magazine is triannual, so we always look forward to getting the call to help with whatever we can for both Bridges and the Oak Creek Current magazines.
Please note: not all of the inset story photos were taken by PLM; cropping the pages for our photos made them look weird.
