A class project in which we were to remake a car with gradient mesh within Illustrator. I decided to create the tron cycle instead of a car, since the Tron movie had just come out at the time. During this project I was able to learn the importance of time management, and how crucial it is to turn projects on time.
The main assignment for this project was to recreate a movie, novel, or state motto into a poster. Another goal of this project was to learn the process on how to create a silkscreen poster. When I chose the Hunger Games as a poster to recreate, I wanted to use different types of elements that were important but never used in an actual poster. All the components in this poster are represented in either the book or the movie. Such as the pile of berries, which are the nightlock berries that stirred on the spark of the rebellion; the electric fences, which every distinct is trapped by within these areas; and the skull, which represents the large amount of deaths caused by the capital.
For this project I created a typography poster for a typography contest for my graphic design 2 class. I had tons of fun designing the poster for this contest, and I hope you enjoy my final design as well.
We had to choose two antonyms, so the words I chose were noisy and quiet. Another condition we had to apply to our poster was to use two different languages. The words I selected were translated from the countries of Sweden and the Netherlands. This conversion, for noisy and quiet, was translated as Scheeuwend and Lugn. The Scheeuwend design is based off of a neon club sign to portray the Dutch clubs of the Netherlands, and the Lugn design was based off of the quiet serene lands of Sweden. Scheeuwend is one of the main dominating words, for night clubs become very noisy at night. I chose a dark gray color for the background for this very reason. Lugn in the poster represents the word quiet, so for the placement in the poster I placed it in the direct center to draw attention to it. I also made the word smaller to portray a quiet night scene. The use of multiple bright colors for the overall concept are to show movement in the neon signs.
Class Project in which I created a logo for my university's worship section.
This was a design project I did during my internship at Intersection Online, Inc. The client was AMRAP; they are a company sells clothing to hardcore gym buffs. Their leader wanted something simple for users to see, when they wanted to know what sizes the product carried in. My job was to design line art illustrations for each of the products I was assigned, as well as to create the chart that went with each illustration. The company also needed a size chart icon created as well. The total number of illustrations that needed to be created besides the charts were six. Each illustration needed to be simple and clean as well as show two or three measurements of the product. These measurements were to be shown in red across the illustrations. A women’s tank for example would show the bust, waist, hips, and length size. The chart included the sizes of the product and any of the measurement types of the product. The font I used for the charts was gotham.
The goal of this contest was to design a coffee bag for Bow Truss Coffee Roasters. They are world-class roasters and coffee professionals making specialty coffee based out of Chicago, IL. In my design I reused their logo to create a stack of coffee cups to imply how great their coffee is. I wanted the colors have an earthy tone to them to tie in the coffee vibe of Bow Truss Coffee Roasters.
This is a t-shirt design that I submitted at threadless.com. Threadless is a creative community that makes, supports, and buys great art. I have entered a couple of my designs in before, but this time I wanted to create a hipster. I thought it would be fun to use an animal instead of a person, so I used an owl for the design. Mismatched colors, a pair of glasses, a mustache, and a bowtie all define what a general hipster of today looks like. I thought the owl’s outfit wasn’t enough, so I placed a coffee mug and some classic books next to the owl to finish off the design.
Here's another design I submitted at threadless.com. The goal of this submission was to create a design for an iPhone case.
Class project to find an organization or company to brand. The brand designs include a logo and a stationary set, letterhead, business card, and envelope. My client was a group of long-boarders who sell stickers for long-boarders. The logo is based off of the group's first initials in each of their names, and their love for vintage styles.
This is an email promo I did during my internship at Intersection Online, Inc. The promo was for a company called Med-Care; they are a diabetic & medical supplies inc. Their company needed an email promo to promote their new medical supplies and to draw more people to their company for medical supplies. The audience for the promo was geared towards an older audience so I made the text clear and easy to read.
