Home of Sacred Belongings

The Squaxin Island Tribe‘s Home of Sacred Belongings Museum Library and Research Center provides a rare glimpse into the lives of the people who hail from the South Puget Sound area.

Because of their unique and intense personal relationship with the inland Salish Sea and its aquatic inhabitants, they are also known as “The People of the Water.”

The museum is located at the “Gateway to the Olympic Peninsula” mid-way between Olympia and Shelton on Highway 101. If you are planning a trip visit the Quileute tribe of the Twilight series, you might want to start your adventure at Squaxin Island. Friendly tribal members provide a gracious introduction to Coast Salish culture at the award winning museum!

Graphic Design Tips

Draw Interest
The most important part of any graphic design project is interest. People get bored very quickly. Online, most of them spend only a few seconds per page. The second you loose their interest, they’re gone.  Here are some ideas for keeping them just a little while longer:

• Incorporate photographs, graphics and video
• Include images of people doing interesting things
• Use catchy slogans

Create a layout that is aesthetically pleasing
• Do not place text over busy background images
• Choose colors carefully
• Don’t be afraid of white space

Be friendly, casual and professional

Here is a poster created for the American Indian Association Powwow.
