Client: Seattle Publishing, on behalf of Heat & Frost Insulators' Local 7
Project: Create a manuscript highlighting the 100-year history of a local union.
Challenges: Balance technical information (current and historical trade work) with the personal stories of union workers. Set these stories within larger historical contexts, such as the Great Depression and WWII. Treat difficult yet relevant topics like asbestos exposure with sensitivity, as many Local 7 members lives were lost due to the exposure.
