From the OC Register:
Jenny Doh (’91) took a leave of absence from her job at Social Services to get involved with her daughter’s elementary school, and though she had planned to return, that didn’t happen. Instead, she wrote a letter to an arts-and-crafts magazine publisher in South Orange County because she’d been an enthusiast of the hobby all her life, she said. Now she owns her own arts-and crafts publishing company. Crescendoh, based in Santa Ana. 1Q . How did this happen? A. I just plunged right into the world of art and craft publishing. I started as an assistant editor and was promoted to editor-in-chief and then director of publishing (at Stampington & Co.). At that point I wondered if I could translate those skills and relationships in a way where I could do it from home. We’re a book-packager, meaning that we produce and coordinate books for publication. We coordinate the talent to make the art, get things photographed and write the content. The other arm of Crescendoh is a live studio in the Santora Building in the Artists Village of Santa Ana. We offer workshops on all sorts of things.
