Illustration

In working with Adobe CS5 Illustrator, I have come to love illustration and the capabilities that can come from knowing this awesome skill. I am very confident in my work, and as shown here in a few student work pieces, I understand how to utilize the program to its fullest. Among these projects, I include the use of perspective drawing, illustrated texture, product manipulation as well as photo  realism. All of these projects are crafted from my perspective of the subject.

Project: GED Campus Program/ Branding Client: Stevens-Henager College | Murray Campus In

this  collaborative  project

with

Danté Johnson, I was charged with an information board, as well as classroom

collateral

materials.

The

needs of Stevens-Henager College | Murray Campus, included a continued visual connection from their enrollment process to classroom visual aids. With the technological brand look Danté and I defined as a key role in representing the progress of GED success, the design evokes a sense of equivalence for the graduating GED student entering college.

Project: Wall Of Fame Client: Stevens-Henager College | Murray Campus In this ongoing project, I have been charged with layout design and curation of a selective  compilation of succeeding alumni of the college. With the need of the client to establish an ambience of achievement, the presentation of graduates is the visual center piece of its frequently used auditorium. Managing a balanced and clean grid, the design reflects the mission statement of the college; success.

PROJECT:  Logo | Branding This is a look into the diverse projects I have worked on in regards to logo design. With each of these logos I was charged with finding a clean timeless way to present each clients mission and vision. Each clients needs were met with an esthetic to satisfy. As one of my favorite aspects of design, brands and branding are a highly important aspect to any company and how they identify. The logos included here identify companies that have already had a strong brand and wanted a fresh look, or are a new company with the potential to grow and have a strong brand in the market. Identity and the branding process begins with researching the need of the product. What is the product and how can it be expressed? Included in the process is utilizing emotion, psychology and trend. From sketching to color theory application, the brand development takes the client through a thorough profile of their company.

Project: Knowing the Facts Client: Stevens-Henager College | Murray Campus As my final capstone project, I was approached to design posters comparing the cost of a trip with the cost of having to repeat a course that the student failed previously in. The idea of vacationing took me to the look and feel of antique travel posters. With a slight modern flair, these posters will hang in all of the classrooms and in the halls on campus. All of the artwork and type layout is done in Illustrator and the texture is rendered in Photoshop.
