The Women Who Rode Away

THE PROJECT: Design, create, and produce a book to accompany Natalia’s one-woman-live-show which features original music, paintings and stories about 10 women who inspired her on her journey to become the artist and woman she is.
The challenge? To create a layout that would hold all of Natalia’s art, lyrics and stories about each of these women, and basically translate her show into 2-D (with no sound) — a “Playbill” of sorts, a memory-book of the show — and for Natalia a compendium of all the pieces that she brought together to create The Women Who Rode Away.
“From the moment of our first phone conversation, I felt seen, heard and completely taken care of by Liz. By the time that initial consultation was over, I didn’t feel like I had hired a designer, I felt like I had hired a collaborator and friend to not only realize my vision, but to take it and expand it to its highest possible outcome. Throughout my book project, Liz was always open, kind, inspiring, patient and perhaps above all, always had the ability to ease my most fragile and frayed nerves (not an easy task!). I would recommend working with Liz to anyone and in fact, I have! I can’t stop talking about how quietly powerful, endlessly talented, empathic, intuitive and just plain brilliant she is! I can’t wait to make another book just so I can work with Liz again!”
