Print Writing and Design

Of course, web development includes writing and design for online audiences and the information Cheryl has written, compiled, designed, etc. for the web is included under the Web Development section.

These days, almost everything created in print is offered online as well. If available, the print materials listed below include a link to an online PDF file so that you can view them.

However, all of BRDI's materials are provided online and most of our designed materials are provided in digital format, while only a few of our materials are still offered in print.

Cheryl designed the logo, website, factsheet, program, badges, workshop proceedings, and other online and print materials for the FIrst International CODATA Africa Workshop in Dakar, Senegal, 19-21 July 2000. She served as the lead person for organizing this workshop. Details on that are on the Event Planning page.

From 1984-2000, Cheryl worked at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Gaithersburg, MD. While there, she served in a number of roles. Initially, she was an Editorial Assistant in the development of the NIST Calibrations and NIST Standard Reference Materials catalogs. Because this was before desktop publishing, she learned how to paste galleys, proofread, and perform other editorial tasks as assigned, including meeting with Government Printing Office staff to review galley proofs and resolve issues. She also was frequently asked to design PowerPoint presentations for high level personnel at NIST, including presentations to be given before Congress.

Around the year 1989 until the end of 2000, she worked in the Standard Reference Data Program and brought her writing and design skills to their PowerPoint presentations, flyers, brochures, catalogs, database user manuals, help sessions, and more. Examples of two of the manuals she worked on are:
NIST/ASME Steam Properties Version 2.2 Users' Guide / NIST/ASME Steam Properties Version 2.21 Users' Guide and NIST X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy Database Version 2.0 Users' Guide.

And here are some general writing and design projects Cheryl has worked on:
