KCIT communications employee honored for military service on International Women’s Day   

Elizabeth Inglese, a Visual Designer with King County Information Technology, was recently featured in a New York Times article highlighting women’s achievements in the military as part of International Women’s Day.

As a Gunnery Sergeant in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Elizabeth served as the Chief Designer for the Reserve’s Centennial Commemoration Campaign, (2015-2016). Her design work appeared across America, including such locations as the National World War II Museum in New Orleans, La., the Navy Memorial Museum in Washington DC, and even Times Square in New York.

“It was an honor to be selected for the job of designer for the United States Marine Corps Reserve Centennial,” said Elizabeth. “This was a once in a lifetime opportunity that took a lot of work, but the prize was truly in the process – seeing the end-state impact and fruits of our labor, which made all the hard work worth it. We communicated the significance and history of the Marine Corps Reserve to people all over the Country.”

Her work included all photo shoot direction and design to include the official centennial campaign logo and brand guide, merchandise, posters, advertisements, event programs, a traveling museum display, banners, a permanent exhibit at the Pentagon, and the official 2016 Toys for Tots donation box design.
