Jessica Magnarella, designer and owner of mPrint Design, was recently selected for the board of directors of the Athens Area Arts Council (AAAC).
The non-profit organization strives to integrate Athens’ artists with area educational systems, economy, and culture. AAAC collaborates with area art organizations, offers artist grants and sponsors events that increase our community’s exposure to art. As a board member, Jessica will help with promotion, fundraising and events. She says, “art has been so integral to my life and such an empowering force – I’d love for others to be emboldened by it too. The AAAC has a 20 year presence in Athens. I’m looking forward to working with them for community-centered arts.” Visit athensarts.org
way to shine!
When Walton EMC, a local electric cooperative, asked mPrint to help promote their solar farm, we were radiant (bad pun, but seriously, what a bright idea). Earth-friendly energy solutions are a personal interest of ours. Plus, this farm offers a leasing opportunity for members who might otherwise face barriers to solar such as high cost, poor roof angles, too much shade, or landlord restrictions. Walton EMC’s solar program, the largest community solar project in the eastern U.S. has been an incredible success. A second farm is already under way – with a waiting list! Coordinator Greg Brooks was recently featured in Stories of Solar, created by the Southern Environmental Law Center. Kudos, Walton EMC!

This year’s Ripple Effect Film showcase was standing room only as audiences packed the Ciné theater. The contest challenged filmmakers of all ages and levels of experience to create original short films about water conservation and stewardship.
mPrint Design created promotional materials and title screens for the show as well as coordinated film editing and event photography. We are pleased to be involved with this important event and enjoyed seeing the creative works of all the budding filmmakers. Kudos to Athens-Clarke County’s Public Utilities for creating a “ripple effect.” For more info, go to: rippleeffectfilmproject.org.
