To make a 14 year long story short ~
Phone Directories morphed into Canpages which was then purchased by Yellow Pages.
I was the art department manager at Phone Directories and then the art department moved to Utah. After a few years as a contract graphic designer, I was invited back to Canpages for another 6 years. I've made life long friends thru Canpages and have designed around 20,000 phone book ads!

I was also responsible for sales support materials, and volunteered with Canpages' social committee, transforming ideas into graphics for events and fundraisers.
