Big Willie birthday wishes from former client Dallas Morning News


Loved seeing this grand gesture in this week’s Sunday Arts section of The Dallas Morning News, a former and beloved redesign client. Through 80 illustrations (mainly portraits) the newspaper marks the 80th birthday of country-western-folk-jazz legend Willie Nelson (a personal fave). They’ve done this before, with Elvis and others, but this effort truly stands out. Peruse the illustrations, with credits, on the web here. (Page design image above via Romenesko.)

Kudos to the illustrators and editors. Check out Willie this Friday at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, and on July 10 at the La Porte (IN) County Fair in my home town. Order tickets here.
