Ruby Rose Yepez is a seasoned building industry professional and will be speaking at the FCA Annual Meeting 2021. She was asked to submit a Pro Bio of herself and her background to exhibit her professional accomplishments, associations, and attributes. She created the following word document with accompanying head-shot.
First, we started with a new head-shot taken with an iPhone 11 in Portrait mode. We took this photo in our back yard with our beautiful bougainvillea’s as our backdrop. Using Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop, I gently highlighted the colors and details of the photo featured below:
I used graphic icons to delineate and highlight her tag-line/motto, “Service • Community • Sustainablity,” her title at SCE, her employer’s website, and her Linkedin web-link-address: www.linkedin.com/in/ladyrubyrose. Then, I collected the logo’s of the entities she’s affiliated with that I could find on the internet in vector format. The logo’s I couldn’t find in vector format, I vectored myself. Vector graphics are optimal when laying out graphics like this inside Adobe Illustrator.
The following layout is an alternate design of Ruby Rose’s Professional Bio.
As of this posting, I am happy to convey that she approves of said design(‘s) contained here-in and we are still ‘happily married.’
The San Gabriel Valley Conservation Corps, (SGVCC), in conjunction with Ruby Rose Sanchez, commissioned Republic Design Company for the design and implementation of the “Green Apple Day of Service” (5.5″ x 8.5″), postcard/flyer/e-flyer:
First a little background on “Green Apple:”
“A quarter of all Americans walk through the doors of a school every day. Yet instead of walking into places of opportunity, millions enter buildings where the air they breathe is filled with toxins and mold, where classrooms are poorly lit and overcrowded, and where resources are limited and outdated. Too many of our children are learning in buildings that are compromising their health and ability to succeed.
Our kids deserve better. Where they learn matters.
Green Apple is an initiative of the Center for Green schools at USGBC to put all children in schools where they have clean and healthy air to breath, where energy and resources are conserved, and where they can be inspired to dream of a brighter future. We know how to create high performing schools that save hundreds of thousands of dollars and provide safer learning environments for our children. Learn more —> here <—
Second, a little about the “Day of Service:”
“The first annual Green Apple Day of Service will take place on Sept. 29, 2012. For one day, advocates from around the world, including students, teachers, parents, elected officials, organizations, companies and more, will come together in support of healthy, sustainable schools by taking action in their communities.” Learn more —> here <—
Lastly, a little about the Center for Green Schools:
“The Center for Green Schools at the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) is the organization behind the Green Apple movement, working to ensure that every student has the opportunity to attend a green school within this generation. The Center provides the resources and support to elevate dialogue, accelerate policy and institute innovation toward healthy, high-performing schools and campuses. The Center works directly with staff, teachers, faculty, students, administrators, elected officials and communities to drive the transformation of all schools into sustainable places to live and learn, work and play.” Learn more —> here <—
