replies

My name is Wendy Fowler and I’m a graphic designer at Scott Thornley + Company in Toronto, Canada. I’ve designed the brochure for Quark Expeditions for the last three seasons. Creating this lovely booklet though is really a group effort. The team here at STC includes a production manager, a proofreader, a photo editor/colour specialist, an account manager, and our creative director. Not to mention, of course, the team at Quark Expeditions with whom we work closely. Creating the brochure is an exciting time around the studio, and it's always rewarding to see the final product.

As someone who has truly been bitten by the Arctic bug, I was chomping at the bit to see Antarctica. And as the newest member of the Quark sales team, I was looking forward to seeing a Quark expedition in action. Like most salespeople it is easier to sell something you have experienced and even easier if you are genuinely passionate about it. Would it stack up to my experiences in the Arctic? Would I be able to sell Antarctica as passionately as I can sell the Arctic? And more importantly, would I get sick crossing the Drake Passage? (Yes. Yes. And NO!)
