Gesso Magazine


On January 1st, 2019 the formerly known Straight Up Magazine, with whom I have worked with since its birth, relaunched and rebranded itself as Gesso Magazine. Where Straight Up Magazine focused primarily on the Illinois side of the Greater St.Louis area, Gesso Magazine’s focus has been the entire Greater St.Louis market on both sides of the Mississippi River. As with Straight Up, the mission of the magazine has been to promote Art, Music, and Culture in the St.Louis area in a free monthly magazine. We have worked to accomplish this mission with a strong online presence through its website and social media. This time around my contribution has been the realm of design, development, site expansion, the maintaining of the website at: as well as the webpage layout and posting of monthly articles from the magazine. I have also contributed as a Marketing Consultant for the magazine, website, social media presence, and brand.
