I would like to personally thank God and everyone who has been there for me through my journey. A special “Thank You” to my Mom, Dad, and sister Kenneshia, for being such a big part of my life.
– Anton Murray
PREFACE Since the young age of five, I knew that design would play a major role in my life. Starting out drawing in coloring books to being able to draw my own characters, it was apparent that art was a passion of mine. As I grew older, I began to experiment with architecture, engineering and mathematics. Constructing pieces of artwork was something I knew I would enjoy and be able to express myself freely without having to worry about otherâ€™s opinions. As a design student, there are many boundaries and restrictions we impose on ourselves. Although possibilites are endless, it is best to put some restraints on work, in order to not confuse the audience. Color, space, line, texture, and symmetry/asymmetry play a major role in any design work. Considering that color is not viewed the same in every culture, it is imperative to do a lot of research before starting a project. Keeping all of these things in mind, I have designed a book of my work that expresses what goes on in the mind of a designer. Making things look simple yet informative is also key. Understanding the difference between readability and legibility also helps the audience better understand what is happening in the artwork. Type, type, type. Typography is the one of the most important aspects of design. There are countless typefaces to choose from. Which one is the best? It all depends on the idea you are trying to portray to the audience. As designers, we must indentify the audience and make sure that the work can be seen from a distance and also from at arms length. Taking all of these things into consideration, the designer can then start the process from conception to construction of the work. No one said being a designer would be easy but accepting the challenge and staying motivated can take you a long way. Without further ado, I proudly present to you, Anton Murray Design Book. The book layout, design and projects within this book have been carefully chosen and explore design in a different light. As most may assume when thinking of design that it is only websites, think again. Immerse yourself into the book that takes you into the mind and creative thought process of the graphic designer, Anton Murray. Signed,

Marijuana and America is a local newspaper that asked to have a spread designed about the epidemic of marijuana in the United States. The design of the United States being covered in marijuana buds was designed by me by scaling up and down the marijuana buds and meticulously placing them in the shape of the country. I chose to represent the country in this way to reinforce the idea of the struggle in America to decide whether or not it should be legal to grow marijuana for personal use. There is also a poll, surveying 1,000,000 Americans, on the right side of the poster that indicates their opinion on how they feel and/or if it should in fact be legalized.

National START! Walking Day APRIL 7, 2010 Join us at 2:30pm for remarks from President Broderick. Walk begins at 2:41pm on Kaufman Mall for the celebration. Why that time? – Two hours are added to your lifespan for every one hour of exercise you participate in!
NATIONAL START! WALKING DAY CLIENT: Department of Recreation and Wellness CREATIVE DIRECTION/LAYOUT/DESIGN/ILLUSTRATION: Anton Murray The Recreation and Wellness Department wanted to motivate individuals to lead a healthy lifestyle. They wanted to strongly encourage individuals that walking is a healthy alternative to exercise. When thinking of promoting walking, the first thing that comes to mind is the kind of footwear that will be on your feet. Whether you are walking to class or to the store, most people wear shoes to get around. With that mindset, I illustrated a pair of colorful, vibrant walking shoes with a 1960’s feel to make the shoes grab the viewers attention.
This event is co-sponsored by the Division of Student Affairs, Monarch Dining Services and the Department of Human Movement Sciences. For more information: e-mail email@example.com or visit http://www.heart.org/start

THE BREW It’s getting hot outside. For fans of the malt, this means one important thing – summer beers! There are a dizzying number of seasonal brews available. To get you started, we’ve broken down six of the most popular ones. Cheers!
Blue Moon Honey Moon
Blue Moon has managed to craft a beer that packs a significant alcoholic punch, but lacks any discernable bite. Sweet orange peel combines with clove honey and a hint of hoppiness to make a beer that is without parallel in smoothness. The honey taste is readily apparent, even in the finish. Honey Moon’s texture is almost buttery, lingering on the tongue for a moment after drinking. Light and refreshing, it’s a different taste for summer.
There’s something a little disturbing about a salty beer. Sure, we all like to eat salty snacks with our brew, but salt in the beer? The Miller Brewing Co. has put considerable effort into marketing this “chelada” style lager, but flashy stands in the grocery store don’t always translate into quality beer. Like its rival BL Lime, Chill has a heavy dose of lime flavor, but it lacks the smoothness of its cousin. It’s difficult to get past the salt. One pull of this will have the corners of your mouth sagging in disgust. Try again, Miller.
Pair with: Something light – chicken, fish, and vegetables.
Bud Light Lime What could taste more like summer? At first sip, Bud Light Lime conjures images of poolside barbeques and long days on the beach. Barely noticeable hops combine with strong lime flavor that leaves a lingering finish. A slightly yeasty aftertaste serves as the only reminder you’re drinking beer. But what makes BL Lime so quintessentially “summer?” Is it the not-so-subtle lime flavor? Is it the ease with which even non-beer drinkers can guzzle it on a hot day? Does it even matter? Purists may scoff and call it a mass market abomination, but most will just call it delicious.
Pair with: A hot summer day.
Leinenkugel Summer Shandy What do you get when you combine a wheat beer and lemonade? Leinenkugel apparently decided to find out and created this hybrid. Although it looks like a beer, Summer Shandy is dominated by a very sweet lemony taste. One could argue that it’s not really a beer at all. The wheat flavor of the malt is present, but takes a back seat. It’s easy to drink, but a departure from the strong beers Leinenkugel normally produces. Beer geeks will not approve.
Pair with: Masochism.
Sam Adams Summer Ale Sam Adams seasonal beers offer beer drinkers year-round variety with a different specialty brew each season. Sam’s Summer Ale is dominated by the sweet orange peel it’s brewed with. Few other flavors are discernable, apart from the modest bitterness injected by the hops. This one has a distinct alcoholic bite to it as well, a welcome contrast to the sweetness. A wellrounded, thoughtfully crafted beer.
Pair with: Something spicy.
Sierra Nevada Summerfest Brewed in the German and Czech tradition, this one is dominated by hops and powerful light grain flavor. Sierra Nevada may have gone too far though. Hops are intended to temper the sweetness of the malt, not destroy it. The grain flavor has barely any time to touch the taste buds before the drinker is kicked in the teeth by the hops. Disappointing, especially considering this style of lager is potentially delicious.
THE BREW MENU CLIENT: The Mace and Crown
Pair with: Full-flavored food that’s heavy on the garlic.
CREATIVE DIRECTION/LAYOUT/DESIGN: Anton Murray = Nasty!
Pair with: Dessert.
= I’d try it again.
= Pretty good
The Brew is a menu designed for the sole purpose to display the opinion of Josh McDonald, the Entertainment Editor for the Mace and Crown. The beers chosen for the menu are based off of Josh’s take on the beer along with a suggestion on which food choice he feels best would go along with it. There is also a rating system, indicated by a beer bottle silhouette, used to give the viewer an idea of whether or not the beer is worth the money or better off being kept on the shelf.

This week in Black History Month Black History Month began as “Negro History Week” in 1926, created by Carter G. Woodson. It changed to a month-long celebration in 1976, February being chosen to commemorate the birthdays of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln, according to history.com. To help celebrate Black History Month this year, each week in February the Mace & Crown will feature a “This week in black history” section.

The Mace and Crown, Old Dominion University’s weekly newspaper, requested a poster that incorporated different events during the weeks of Black History Month. During each week, every day had something special happen by an African-American individual(s) that changed history. Creating a piece that was easy to view and understand was the key. I chose a railroad background to push the idea of the hardship that the African-Americans from the 1800’s faced during the Underground Railroad time.

Kurt Cobain was an American musician who served as lead singer, guitarist, and songwriter for the Seattle-based rock band Nirvana.
Lyrics from Nirvana’s “Heart-Shaped Box”
Lyrics from Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit”

Cobain formed Nirvana in 1987 with Krist Novoselic. Within two years, the band became a fixture of the burgeoning Seattle grunge scene. In 1991, the arrival of Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” marked the beginning of a dramatic shift of popular rock music away from the dominant genres of the 1980s (glam metal, arena rock, and dance-pop) and toward grunge and alternative rock.

Nirvana was an American rock band that was formed by singer/guitarist Kurt Cobain and bassist Krist Novoselic in Aberdeen, Washington. Nirvana went through a succession of drummers, with the longest-lasting being Dave Grohl, who joined the band in 1990.

With the lead single “Smells Like Teen Spirit” from their 1991 album Nevermind, Nirvana entered into the mainstream, bringing along with them a subgenre of alternative rock called grunge. Other Seattle grunge bands such as Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, and Soundgarden also gained popularity, and, as a result, alternative rock became a dominant genre on radio and music television in the United States during the early-to-middle 1990s.

Third Eye Blind, a San-Francisco based alternative rock group has been playing hits since the mid90’s. Known for one of their most popular track of the ‘90s, “Semi-Charmed Life”, Third Eye Blind comes out with another album to not be forgetten, Ursa Major, released in 2009. The majority of the album was recorded overseas in Europe. When thinking of how to design a look that fit the European setting, creating an eye-catching cover first came to mind. Pushing the idea that Third Eye Blind is blasting back into the scene was my goal to make the album cover stand out from the rest.

“This book left me speechless. Definitely one of the best novels written by H.G. Wells.” -T. Howard
“One of the best books I have read. Novelist H.G. Wells does it again! His imagination and plot for “War of the Worls” is beyond compare.” -F. Townsend
WAR OF THE WORLDS WAR OF THE WORLDS
The War of the Worlds (1898) is a science fiction novel by H. G. Wells. It describes the experiences of a character who travels through London as the Earth is invaded by Martians. It is said to be the first story that details a conflict between mankind and an alien race. The War of the Worlds is split into two parts : Book one: The Coming of the Martians and Book two: The Earth under the Martians. The novel is narrated by an unnamed writer of scientific articles. Throughout the narrative he struggles to reunite with his wife, while witnessing the Martians rampaging through the southern English counties. Part one also features the tale of his brother, who accompanies two women to the coast in the hope of escaping England as it is invaded by machines operated by aliens.

CLIENT: Old Dominion University Police Department CREATIVE DIRECTION/LAYOUT: Anton Murray The Old Dominion University Police Department asked me to design a layout of different images taken of the officers amongst the department. They also did not want to use many words, as they feared the viewer would be less interested in the yearbook. With that in mind, I chose to have brief descriptions of what was happening in the different spreads to help the viewer understand the significance of the images. Each layout is different and has elements that keep the viewer(s) engaged by telling a story with the least amount of text as possible.

Excerpt from Martin Luther King , Jr’s “I Have a Dream” speech
Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their captivity. But one hundred years later, the Negro still is not free. One hundred years later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination. One hundred years later, the Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. One hundred years later, the Negro is still languished in the corners...”

MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. DAY CLIENT: National Science Foundation CREATIVE DIRECTION: Anton Murray Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is an American holiday celebrated in the month of January each year. The significance of his leadership and willpower to lead a nation to believe that there would one day be equality for all, brought him to the forefront of a divided nation. The “I Have a Dream” speech is known nation-wide by many leaders and is still seen as one of the most influential speakers in the history of the United States. In thinking of a way to reinforce the idea of the powerful activist of the 1960’s, I chose to use a portion of his “I Have a Dream” speech on the back of the brochure.

INTRAMURAL CHAMPIONS T-SHIRT CLIENT: Department of Recreation and Wellness CREATIVE DIRECTION/DESIGNER/LOGO DESIGNER/ILLUSTRATION: Anton Murray The Department of Recreation and Wellness wanted a T-shirt for the champions of the following sports: volleyball, flag football, softball, soccer and basketball. While trying to keep a uniform feel of the illustrations of the sports, I decided to use “grey” feel so that there is not one sport overpowering the other. The equality of all sports was key in this design. The shirts were to be handed out and worn by all intramural champion athletes for their respective sports. The shirts were printed in small, medium, large, extra-large and double XL.
