Potentially gearing up for a larger event, I was contacted to do a concept design for a flyer that would serve as a marketing effort for a water pong tournament. The tournament would have been a non-profit event benefiting the local university’s baseball team. Though this event never was put into action, the end result turned out to be well liked and a good solution to the given request.

Getting in the spirit for St. Patrick’s Day and more specifically, State Patty’s Day, I decided to create a background for my phone.

Mannings is a TV, furniture, and appliances store owned and managed by my grandfather. He has had this store for over 50 years and has never owned a business card. I figured it was about time he got one!
For his card, I was debating having his face and portrait as the back, but figured the front of his building with his company name on it would match his taste a little better. With that, I took his current company logo, freshened it up a bit, and provided his requested information finally ending with his locally known slogan, “Cross over the bridge!”
Next, I’m hoping I can help him understand the potential expansion with having his name on the web!
Hair By Diane is a recent start-up salon created by my mother. Prior to this salon and between other career fields, she has had over 25 years of personal experience owning and running a salon. She finally came to a point where she could re-open her salon and stick to her passion. As I had a bit of time on my hand, I was readily available to go to work for her.
Starting with her logo, I wanted to create something that would showcase her talent and personal style. I developed an illustration of a hair brush meanwhile incorporating the word hair into the bristles. The two logos below differentiate slightly with the word hair, where with the black and white logo it lacked a variety of color and needed to be visible from a great distance so I excluded the lower bristles in order to make the word stand out. This was unneeded in the color variation, so I left that as is.
She also wanted a business card to brand the logo onto giving her the opportunity to pass it out to quickly spread word. For the back, I chose a hair brush that was similar to the logo having thin bristles with ball points. After personally taking the photo, I manipulated the temperature of the image to match more closely to the color scheme she wanted. On the front, I marked it with her logo and the details she needed presented.
Design Official is a mock design team/company created by two colleagues and myself to emulate the structure and teamwork needed in a typical design team. Progressing throughout the time, projects focused on school oriented assignments. We completed various projects all dealing mostly with photography and graphic design.
With Design Official, I created a logo, a business card, and a company website (below) to demonstrate the branding of our team. Having an elegant, yet fun outlook, we wanted to keep along the lines of a professional identity as well as leaving a bit of fun personality to it.
Filmore wanted an album art design, front and back, for their upcoming single release of “City Lights.” The member in contact was pretty straight forward with the direction he wanted the design to go, which was demonstrated in the below.
