look_cover_01.jpgIn preparation for it’s second anniversary, we decided to redesign LOOKatOKC.

With all you need to know about what’s going on around town and a demographic age of 18 to 35, LOOKatOKC is Oklahoma City’s entertainment magazine.

With a deadline of six weeks, I assembled together five of the best designers at The Oklahoman – two from marketing and three from multimedia. Never in my 25 year career had I witnessed a more powerful team, and at the average age of 24, I’m excited to think about what the future holds for them and the role they will play in our company.

In the end, the final product reflected a large part of each of their ideas. Designers are Tay Duran, Suzanne Green, Tommy Yi, Julie Webb and Jennifer Armstrong, and of course, no publication would be complete without its editors, Lindsey Johnson and Alan Herzberger.

To launch our new design and as a bonus, Budweiser threw a party and invited some of Oklahoma City’s most beautiful people.

With nearly 1,500 in attendance at the Coca-Cola Bricktown Event Center, HEAT was the event of the Summer. My hats off the Rob Wescott, Joe Hopper, Tommy Yi, John Waterman and Holly Franks, the masters behind a wonderful party.

At my age, I was surprised to be ushered passed the 6′ 7,” 350 pound doorman and the 3′ midget at the entrance of the VIP room. Awesome party guys! Congratulations on a job well done.

HEAT was held Thursday, August 16, 2007 from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m.
