Loren Bailey & Jordan Grace Owensgraphic designers

Sometimes a turnover is a delicious piece of pastry, but it’s also something that happens at a company after seven years in business. This week we celebrate — and mourn — the tenure of two fabulous designers here at YES! Weekly. Loren Bailey came to us more than two years ago in the middle of a redesign and has held us through three different art directors. Jordan Grace Owens loaned us her artistic talents for just about a year, creating in that time some of our most memorable cover designs. Loren has her eyes on grad school, while Jordan’s art career has enabled her to unshackle herself from our design desk. Look for her stuff at And thanks to both ladies for jobs well done. Hope to see you both at the Christmas party.
