BEAUTIFUL, CREATIVE GRAPHICS AND WEBSITES BY JASLENI DESIGN
There is something innately creative about Jasleni Brito. She has been honing her craft since childhood (her mom says she was painting before she could talk). Her work is extensive and includes an impressive list of projects with clients like Whole Foods and The Burnt Shop. She offers everything from logo, web, and package design to flyers, posters, and invitations. We love her, not just because she created a gorgeous, new website for The Scoop Glastonbury this summer, but because she was SOOOOO incredibly responsive and always willing to help. She offers that same attitude of giving outside of her work as well...she donated a kidney to a complete stranger four years ago...now that is the real deal. See some of her unique designs below or find her HERE.
POUNDS TRANSFORMATION TO GLASTONBURY
A non-surgical, weight-loss practice that helps patients struggling with obesity will open in town this January in the new building at the corner of Putnam Boulevard and Naubuc Avenue. Pounds Transformation grew from zero patients to 20,000 in just over six years (woah!). It was started by Michelle Cavo, who has since appeared in The Magic Pill on Netflix, a documentary about combating illness through food. They now have a team of medical doctors, physician assistants, registered dietitians, and a chef. Their new location will feature a 'food pharmacy', garden, and greenhouse. They will also offer cooking classes. See BEFORE & AFTER pictures of the clients they have helped transform below.
