Last Friday was bring-your-child-to-work day at the HANDY office, so a few of us editors had a chance to show our kids and grandkids a little bit about what we do to produce the home-improvement magazine, Web site, e-newsletter, social media and more that you see frequently throughout the year.
Though our days are often spent in front of a computer — not exactly a kid-friendly activity — we decided to highlight one of the more glamorous aspects of our jobs by holding a HANDY cover shoot in our in-house photo studio. Propped with a handmade toolbox (an authentic HANDY project) and a few supplies, each child stepped up to the workbench and posed as if they were painting their masterpiece.
After snapping a photo of each little DIYer, I wrote some kid-focused coverlines and then handed everything over to HANDY’s art director, Matt Sprouse, who pulled together these snazzy, publication-worthy covers. The kids loved their keepsakes and the editors enjoyed sharing the exciting experience with them. Do you have a bring-your-child-to-work day at your office? How do you get your child interested in what you do?
Can you guess which editors belong to the kids in the photos?
