This was from my Graphics Studio I class. We had to convert an image of our choice into a vector illustration using Adobe Illustrator. I decided to use a picture of a Commodore PET CBM 3008 since I love the aesthetic of old computers. My goal was to make the colors and composition look like classic old school magazine ads.

This was an assignment from my Design & Color class. I was tasked to make a wrapping paper-like pattern in three different color palettes along with a matching greeting card. I decided to theme mine around the iconic imagery that comes to mind when one thinks of space. The color palettes each had a different theme: the first one is friendly and warm, the second palette has cool and sharp colors, and the third palette has bold exciting colors that scream “90’s”!

These two informational posters were from my Design & Color class. Each of the two talk about specific aspects of color. One talks about Value (left), and the other talks about a specialized color wheel (right) that we use when designing for print.

These three posters are part of a project in which I was required to simply make three posters that are visually different while all still contain the same theme. My theme was “Posters you would see in an alien city”. I designed the exact alien species that are showcased in each poster as well as their written language.

These are the three fonts that were used in the posters above. Instead of hand writing the alien letters by hand, I designed a couple of fonts so that I could quickly type the areas of text I wanted in the posters.

In this project I had to design a fake brand that has their own logo that would be utilized on a number of products and promotional materials. Drop Dead is a fake fashion brand that is for monster boys and girls who like to “stick it to the man” while looking cool doing so. I wanted the logo to be iconic like Adidas, Converse, Nike, and Vans “Off the Wall”. I decided it would be interesting to use a figure-ground relationship between the image looking like a skull while also at the same time looking like text that reads “DROP DEAD” to achieve that iconic and memorable effect that those various brands have.

I was assigned to make a booklet about anything I wanted, so naturally I decided to make a fake fashion magazine called A Cut Above the Rest. It humorously showcases famous fashion designers’ hottest new trends in the world of geodes and rocks. The pages are sleek and sharp like the many fashion magazines you might see being produced today!

These are a few logos/icons that re-imagine the originals shown on the top left of each image. Some are greatly needed improvements upon the original icons such as the Linux and Wee Care icons, whereas others like the Scratch and My Figure Collection logos are just a fun spin on their central ideas.
