In advance of the Chad and Jeremy Fall 2016 tour (their final full-length North American tour), the artists requested the compilation an anthology on three CDs and forty-page photo book. Alma reviewed over fifty years of photos in cooperation with noted rock photographer, Gered Mankowitz, artists’ management, family and friends. Alma prepared the complete chronological layout for the book, covers and loose art card for a package featuring over 300 unseen photos.
When designing the visual elements for the CDs, Alma decided to dovetail with the rough era of the songs on each disc: the sixties being represented by the classic look of Ember Records, the eighties by Rocshire Records and the present by the style of their current record label, Electric Paintbox.
This Anthology is limited to 300 copies, Alma’s personal copy may be requested for review at in-person meetings.

Alma and a colleague reviewed and updated the online list of items available through Loyola’s Equipment Loan Program. Alma spearheaded the visual changes, avoiding the square pictures previously used on the website and in management proposed redesigns. The final design features equipment photos in an extreme landscape aspect to facilitate a more equal visual presence for all types of equipment items.
In tandem with this visual shift, all of the content was updated and reorganized, the new organization being heavily based on the Equipment Loan Binder which was finalized two months previous. This reorganization reduced the number of menu items from 24 to 19 future-proof categories.
The website is based on the T4 content management system.-10-101
