GRAPHIC DESIGN & PHOTOGRAPHY This book represents the work of Graphic Designer and Photographer: Franklin Lam. Originally born and raised in California, which currently is my home. I have been designing since I was fourteen. Even after ten years, I must admit that I still love what I do. Because of my infinite passion for design, this has never seemed like work. Franklin continues to work daily as an artist, designer, and a photographer. Franklin currently showcase his work on his website at: www.franklinlam.com
Ă’ABOUT THIS PORTFOLIOĂ“
This book is dedicated to myself as it is for anyone who has ever had a doubt that they could achieve their dreams in life. Thank you everyone . . . - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - I am currently a graduate with a Bachelor of Arts: Graphic Design at California State University, San Bernardino. This portfolio gathers a selection of my best work that I have developed both at college and at home, organized to show my skills and also the different subjects that I have approached on graphic design, such as poster, advertising, illustration, and photography. All works include a short description to unveil what is behind every single detail and also to show my conceptual thinking.
ÒNothing is better than effective communication. Without that, youÕre not communicatingÓ
WITH MY DESIGNS... I have a simple hierarchy that inspires my pursuit of excellence :
DEFINE THE PROBLEM THINK ABOUT IT UNDERSTAND IT SOLVE IT EVALUATE IT REPEAT, IF NECESSARY
By doing this, I constantly develop a strategic method that operates with my imagination, creativity, and communication. Having the opportunity to experience many cultures, people and projects, I have grown to appreciate that creativity comes from within, not the tools that we work with. As a designer and artist, my goal is to always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: “It’s not where you take things from it’s where you take them to.” Graphic Designer Franklin Lam
thin light regular medium bold
Typography breaks down the anatomy of simple communication. The anatomy of typography allows the designer to explore the formal structures and use methods of organizing the mechanics of movement.
Editorial The old adage that says, “form follows function,” relies mainly on the application of the layout in an editorial content. An editorial is an opinion article.
The purpose of a promotional campaign is to bring awareness to a brand or product..
@ Corporate Identity
Corporate Identity is the “persona” of a corporation which is designed to accord with and facilitate the attainment of the business objectives, and is usually visibly manifested by way of branding and the use of trademarks.
Packaging Packaging is the marketing vehicle for consumer products. Packaging, can take on many forms ranging from paper to metal. A successful packaging targets the consumers’ attention.
The real issue is not talent as an independent element, but talent in relationship to will, desire, and persistence. Talent without these things vanishes and even modest talent with those characteristics grows.
- Milton Glaser

Target, Inc // Student Project Client: Sam Bonilla
What is a universal value of every culture? Why do people immigrate to the USA? The family. The regular family, the parents want the best they can have for the family. Target is already known for its quality products, the respect and responsibility to the customer and the community they are in. The trick is that we don’t have to confer the idea of quality product, but show that Target isn’t just for Americans. American is not a designation of people or person, but it represents an ideal. Target is selling this ideal, the American dream. Theme: “Quality Products for a quality life!” Program: Adobe Photoshop CS4

CSUSB Theatre Department Musical: The Last Five Years // Promotional Project | Webdesign
Description: A contemporary song-cycle musical that ingeniously chronicles the ﬁve year life of a marriage, from meeting to break-up or from breakup to meeting, depending on how you look at it. Written by Jason Robert Brown (Parade, Songs For A New World), The Last Five Years is an intensely personal look at the relationship between a writer and an actress told from both points of view. The show is presented in “forward time” as we follow the story of their relationship from Jamie’s perspective, starting with their ﬁrst meeting and following through with their wedding and ultimate breakup. At the same time, Cathy relates the story in “reverse” starting with their breakup and moving backwards in time until their ﬁrst meeting at the end of the show. Made up mostly of solo turns, with beautiful music and alternately humorous and heartfelt lyrics, it is only in the middle of the show that Jamie and Cathy come together as Jamie proposes and the two are wed. Musicals about relationships are nothing new, but The Last Five Years manages to reinvent the familiar formula and offers up one of the brightest, freshest scores of the new century. Current Situation: Develop a promotional website to raise interest in the show for those who ﬁnd out about the show through online resources or visit the website for additional information. Give accurate pricing, show-times, and teasers. Target Audience: Age 13 and Up, Primarily High School and College Age Individuals

Without aesthetic, design is either the humdrum repetition of familiar clichés or a wild scramble for novelty. Without the aesthetic, the computer is but a mindless speed machine, producing effects without substance. Form without relevant content, or content without meaningful form.

ypography is an essential factor in Graphic Design. In honor of the most used sans-serif typeface designed by Geoffrey Lee, this installation presents posters, signage, and other graphic material demonstrating the variety of uses and enduring beauty of this design classic. As a special feature in the exhibition, it was hosted at California State University, San Bernardino’s Design Room, Fall 2007. Over the course of this project, I wanted to showcase the various visual elements of what typography can really offer. Each poster had a bit of inspiration from the Bauhaus Art Movement. Though, with the help of modern art and its subjects, it allowed me to explore the abstraction, and movements that is applied to different types of arts. This was my grand step of becoming the next best designer.

Home of the “elephant roundup.” Every year, hundreds of elephants are brought in from many villages around Surin to celebrate “the elephant culture.” This year is believed to be the promising one yet.

aux or feline? The Truth About Fur! This is the real story. According to our government, â€œour government,â€? estimates, 500,000 garments are sold in the United States every year. Remind yourself. This practice must stop. This practice must stop. This practice. This practice must stop...
The Truth About Fur // Student Project Program: Adobe Illustrator CS4
The Truth About Fur Book // Student Project Program: Adobe Illustrator CS4
This thirty two page booklet promises you the other side about fur, the truth side about fur. This booklet is a collaboration of the Fur Free Alliance Poster.
Synopsis The history of “Lost Energy Drink” accumulated as a simple project involving a few daring individuals with the interest of snowboarding and surfing. Lost Energy Drink is widely disturbed by the ever-so-popular Hansen Beverage Company, also known for their high-quality, all-natural beverages, and former partnership with Lost International, Inc. Lost has revolved itself around surfboards, surf/skate apparel and accessories. This energy drink invented itself with a new buzz, hip, and demographic. Lost Energy Drink wants you to represents whatever you think it is.
In the state of confusion, dehydrated, or even pooped out; the drink itself will boost your hip anytime of the day. Lost Energy Drink’s goal is to provide the individual with the “blast” to satisfy their needs.
Lost Energy Drink & X-Games Since this campaign is known widely for its insane skateboarding, snowboarding and surfing era, we would like to set-up a promotional event involving top of the league riders at each location: the beach, the mountains, and the desert. This event will be a mock off similar to the ever so popular “X-Games.” The purpose of this promotional signage is to create “awareness.”
Direct Mail Lost Energy Drink x Free Drink
Who doesnâ€™t like a free drink? If you get one of these in the mail, then you are the lucky few. The concept behind this was to successfully design a direct mail promotional piece used to be sent to prospective clients, donors, dealers, and retailers for their contributions in the Lost Energy Drink campaign.

Mission Objective: Choose a movie that has been recently released at the theaters, but did not do so well. Develop an outdoor campaign with a buzz to bring back the hype for the upcoming DVD release.
Concept: Shown above; is the promotional DVD movie posters. The concept behind this was to use the official trademark of the movie and effectively communicates the message and catch the audience attention without actually suggestion what movie it is. Using the staggering colors of black, white and red, it creates a unique tone. The tagline of 1,000,000,000,000,000 vs. 1 indicates that only one survivor will save us all.
Concept: Seemingly, the concept behind this is to create an “unknown” billboard setting. Located in the streets of Hollywood Blvd., the creative trademark is used as well as the date and a unbarring creature on the top corner of the billboard with a dreadful message.
Concept: Located in the heart of Los Angeles, the concept of this billboard was distorted with an eerie atmosphere of a woman who “perhaps” is a zombie, covered in blood, and ready to feed on flesh. The overall image is set with a black, gray, and white overlay.
Wall Installation Concept: This concept is derived for an outdoor campaign. The purpose of this installation is to create a buzz with a face familiar to that of Calvin Klein models but with a twisted face makeover; resembling that of a zombie. This piece measures at about four stories high and seventeen rooms wide.
Transit Shelters & Bulletins
Concept: The goal of the bulletin installation is to create hype for the upcoming dvd film. By creating a buzz for the unknown movie by the images and icons; the concept can be universal.
Subway Installation Concept: What is an easy way to create hype? Make something look like something from the movie, of course! By wrapping the interior of a subway train, it will create an almost similar atmosphere to the movie. Fake trash on the floor, fake broken windows, bloody handprints on doors, and hidden symbols all over the train with a date.
Concept: As people walk by, do you ever stop and think if they ever notice transit shelter ads? Well, this ad will! A face so grotesque, how will anyone miss this? The goal of this outdoor campaign is to create a mysterious buzz. Its purpose is to reach a variety of audiences and excite them. Although, the media will help reach this audience in a larger scale, it can still entice and wow the audience.
Stairway Installation Concept: Wouldnâ€™t it be cool to walk on the steps and notice a familiar face? If you know her, Alice is her name. She plays the main role in the movie. A stairway installation is enforced on the steps with her dreadful ability and thirst to kill zombies. The goal behind this is to create an additional hype to the subway installation. With the color tones and contrast, it creates the similar atmosphere to that of the movie.
Major Installation Concept: The final installation is one of the biggest outdoor movie campaign. Think of how people love going on rides and getting scared during Halloween. Well, this viral campaign has re-created an ultimate ride through a bus that is deteriorated, destroyed and filled with much surprises. Closed off of almost 20 blocks in the heart of Los Angeles, a city that is fully recreated in honor of the movie will certainly, get peopleâ€™s attention as well as the media.
MEXICAN GRILL Statement of objective: The overall project will consist of research of a local taco stand, the client (assuming) all expensive are paid for. The designerﾃ不 job will be to re-create a universal identity look for his clientﾃ不 business. Companyﾃ不 Objectives: To create a fresh look for an existing taco stand. Competing in terms of corporate and retail environment mixture of a gourmet restaurant vs. a home-style restaurant, Fataco Mexican Grill is the newly hyped restaurant business that is spicing up all around the San Bernardino county district. Fataco Mexican Grill will anticipated and outburst of chain more than 580 quick casual Mexican eateries in almost 30 states in the near future. Known for its fresh, gourmet, and increasingly organic ingredients, Fataco offers a simple menu of tacos, burritos, fajitas, and tacos featuring pork, shredded beef, chicken, steak, and vegetarian fillings. Simply anyone can afford this food, customerﾃ不 check averages about $5.50.

Fataco also serves chips and salsa, beer, and margaritas for the more spiced up individuals.

Concept: Competition plays a major role in packaging. Shown above, is a unique looking design with the ever-so loved color scheme. The simple trademark is embedded throughout the cup, napkins, and bags. Simple and easy, your customerĂ• s will fall in love with.
Point of Purchase Concept: Love our restaurant? WhatÕ s a better way to take home a piece of memory. Your client will love this idea of having a point of purchase display in the front counters for consumers to purchase. This is the newly genuine grill card (gift card) that has been introduced to the line. The design simply explains itself.
Signage Concept: Ever been lost and can’t find a good restaurant to eat at? WeÕll this simple sign will change your mind. Very easily recognized with the logo.
Vehicle Billboard Concept: When youĂ•re driving on the freeway, be sure to lookout for the ever-so-popular logo and icon! The idea behind this is simple and just simply placed on a white backdrop.
Billboard Concept: The idea behind this is very abstract. Two tacos = FATACO. What more can you possibly ask for?
Concept: I’ve always figured that putting people before product just made good common sense. Establish Indulge as the premier purveyor of the finest handmade truffles in the world while maintaining their uncompromising principles as they grow. Font: SF New Republic *any colors can replace the logo, depending on the packaging color usage.
Mission Statement: Chef Jean-Marc Gorce, a chocolatier from France now working in San Francisco sells handmade chocolate truffles at his shop on Columbus Avenue in North Beach, and on the web. He is interested in redesigning his packaging, as he believes his current packaging is too plain. He wants his chocolates to be presented with the “handmade” look but also to be distinctive and different. Please visit his web site at (http://www. xoxtruffles.com/). For more info about him, his company, his truffles, and his packaging.
Concept: Based on the information through research, Chef JeanMarc Gorce believes his handmade chocolate truffles are essentially unique and one of the finest. My job, is to create a brand value for the products based on the packaging. Gorce’s packaging, it’s very eloquent with vibrant colors such as gold, red, brown, purple, different shapes and exotic bow ties. However, the logo seems a bit bland, and needs reinvention to amped the visual and aesthetics. Therefore, the logo will be changed completely, Indulge Handmade Truffles will be the new identity.
Concept: Jazzy! It folds like a flower! But, acts as a package. Indulge Handmade Truffles has created yet another innovate package. Specs:
• One truffle • Portable • Easy • Accessible • Concept • User friendly
Concept: You can now savour the great taste of Indulge Handmade Truffles at your home or anywhere you desire! With this new innovative packaging, you can easily carry up to four truffles, and you might thank us later! Specs:

• Two truffles • Remarkable design • New flap • Easy storage • Unique • Original
Mission Statement: Mezzetta is a company specialized in Mediterranean food products, particularly olives and pasta sauces. They would like to expand into the pasta market and compete with such companies as Ronzoni, Classico, and Gia Russa. They have had good niche market success with their Napa Valley Bistro brand but they donâ€™t feel that their design really attracts a large-scale audience. Currently the Mezzetta name dominates their product line; they would like to emphasize the Napa Valley Bistro brand and subordinate Mezzetta as the parent company. Research shows that the Mezzetta name is associated only with jarred condiments. They want to separate their pasta sauces and go into a whole line of handmade pastas such as spinach, whole wheat, spicy rye, pastas that are variously shaped, colourful, tasty, and have eye appeal.
Concept: Based on the information through research, Mezzetta specializes in Mediterranean food products with the product line of pasta and sauces. My job, is to create a brand value for the products based on he packaging. Based on Mezzetta packaging, its very eloquent with vibrant colours such as gold, red, brown, yellow, on their jars and pasta boxes. The current design incorporates an Italian feel. However, the packaging needs to be redesign to maintain quality and tradition. The colour palette will incorporate much of the colors on the logo but with different label designs.
Font: Sketch Rockwell Swatches:
Mission Statement: Porto Rico is a company specialized in coffee and tea products. They are famous for their custom blends of coffee, their tradition has lived on with their rich ingredients. However, Porto Rico wants to market their packaging similar to Starbucks, and drinks registered to their drinks. Also in need of a new logo/identity.
Concept: Based on the information through research, Porto Rico specializes in quality coffees and teas in the retail market and is looking to go worldwide just as Starbucks did. My job, is to create a brand value for the products based on the packaging. Based on Porto Rico packaging, its very simple with a recurrent design throughout with labels, and logo. The current design incorporates an contemporary feel. However,the packaging needs to be redesign to maintain the same feel as Starbucks along with registered names for the coffee.
