Every day, 365 days in a row, Marcel published his designs on the blog oneposteraday.com. After a full year the series interweaved with everyday personal experiences, contemporary issues and world news provides a colorful image of 2014.

BY ELMA GIAVASES
@ VOL 4 ON APR 05, 2018

It is no easy take to create art, to somehow materialize and express the thoughts in your head. Creating art expressing the thoughts in someone ELSE's head is something else entirely. Elma Giavases' early life and subsequent travels around the globe have given her a unique perspective on design and branding, and she now brings that expertise to the Kalispell community as a graphic designer with Highline Design.

After all, "great designs delight".
