Growing up on an island in the Pacific presents many opportunities for one to learn and be involved in water sports. Besides surfing and diving, sailing was one of my favorite pastimes to get away and recharge my batteries. There is nothing like warm tropical breezes blowing across your face and the sweet smell of the open ocean.

The resulting masthead redesign, new color palette, font selection and layout were so well received the new look was transferred to the other publications and collateral of the Alumni Affairs Department, many of which Spencer also designed.
