Holiday Card

Another of my freelance projects. Some friends of mine were looking to send out their first holiday card as a couple and I was excited to help them out. We started with with photos of them and their adorable pets, then I designed the card from scratch for them. It was good to have the chance to stretch my graphic design muscles again.

New Business Card

bird-trace-redwhite card Phone Number omittedI’m covering an event tonight, and I needed to whip up a new business card. I wanted to use one of my nicer model shoot photos, but the last time I tried that at my local printers they couldn’t handle much in the way of detail, and anything with a gradient turned into mush. Hopefully, the more minimalistic approach of the tracing will print better. I also took the phone number off for the blog post, but it will be on the printed cards.

I know I’m fairly hit-and-miss on graphic design, so any feedback is greatly appreciated. Be brutal, I can take it.

Groov-E Juice Poster, Work In Progress

Groov E Poster 1Last year, I did an internship with an awesome guy named Jason Noble. He’s an absolutely amazing photographer, and it was fantastic working with him. He’s also got a side business selling e-cigarette flavors and accessories. The thing of it is, it keeps him too busy to make some really nice promotional material. So, Jordan and I thought it would be fun to produce some work he could use.

I still don’t have it where I want it to be, but this is the first poster I’ve got so far. What do you guys think?  As always, criticism is always welcome.

Love

Last week, I showed off an early attempt at doing some graphic design, here. At the encouragement of my fiancé and a few friends, I kept experimenting with the concept. While the floral design is the same in both images, I decided to go with Arabic instead of Japanese this time around. Now, I don’t have a physical Arabic-English dictionary to cross reference, so I am just going to have to trust Google Translate on this one. I got multiple different possible translations, but ultimately went with this:

مودة

love, friendship, cordiality, intimacy, bonhomie, fellowship

 

I did run it past a friend who is studying the language though. She said that she didn’t recognize the dialect, but then I discovered that a piece of the pattern could be mistaken as an accent mark on the word. I took that out, and I think that should remove any confusion. However; if anyone out there speaks Arabic, and sees that this is wrong, please correct me.

Overall, I like the aesthetic of the design. The Arabic script flows with the floral imprint in a way that works for me. The green and white color pallet is a refreshing change from my usual designs that usually have a lot more black.
