"Relationships" February Event Poster Design

I love getting back to making posters again. Its been a few months since Ive done one, and Ive missed the creativity that comes with them. There are so many new tricks and photoshop features to try on them. It's been really fun. 

I loved getting to work with so many beautiful photos and getting to use my love for typography in this design. I also wanted to give it a bit of a February touch with some of the colors and design elements. Incorporating a paper theme with the letters and the paper men chain was fun and challenging and I just love how it turned out. 

Here is the coordinating handout design below.

Happy Valentines!

Office Snap Brand Identity and Web Design

I designed this look for Office Snap Inc, a company that specializes in helping small business save money and utilize their office technologies more efficiently. 
Their name “Office Snap Inc.” was inspired by making office and business chores easier... or done in a “Snap”. So I got the idea that it would be neat if I created some typography in where the letters were “snapped” together, so to speak. 

The recycled paper texture was also an important element of this brand identity. One of the services that Office Snap Inc provides is helping a company go more green and paperless. So the client and I thought it would be a great staple if we incorporated this kind of texture into the identity of the company.

Shine Dance Apparel (branding package design)

Shine Dance Apparel was such a fun girly project to work on. My inner teenager had a blast with all the glitter and sparkles I got to create and work with. 

Shine Dance Apparel is a dance studio in Spanish Fork Utah that wanted to branch out from their growing dance class business to include their own product line and a brick and mortar consignment store. They needed a versatile logo for multiple uses that they could use for web and printing on different mediums like vinyl, glass, clothing, paper, and even awnings. They also needed to print on various colors as well and thats what makes this logo unique is that it can be printed on both light and dark backgrounds and also makes a great watermark.  

I also really loved getting to work on the logos for their male clothing line Swag On. They wanted to wanted to play off their original main logo and give it a more masculine hip hop look. 

And here are the female dance clothing line logo designs....

Book Exchange -Event Poster Design

My favorite thing with poster design is coming up with new layouts that Ive never done before and this is no exception. I loved using a more vertical layout with this and making the photo of the woman reading take up half the page. Than I had a bunch of fun with the layout of the "copy" on the right giving it some fun retro effects. Then finishing up the whole project with some much need texture. 

Harvest Party -Event Poster Design

This was a fun concept of going for a cutting board kind of look. Like the letters where carved into the board and we have a bunch of the ingredients piled around promising an endless possibility to hopeful chili contestants.

Graphic Design Resume Design 2013

As a graphic designer you can't just use any old resume template for yourself. Its just not going to cut it. Its important to think of your resume design as another portfolio piece representing the kind of work you do. There are so many great design out there. I found myself was over stimulated with ideas for my own resume and knew I was going to have to do something completely unique to stand out in this competitive field. I have was inspired by some of the transparency style designs I have been seeing lately and wanted to incorporate some of that with some of my favorite colors. In the end I really love how it tuned out and feel confident submitting this resume to potential employers. 

Here are some great resumes designs that I just had to share with you.
