The East Coast Gaming Conference held their annual t-shirt contest for their 2019 event and this is the design I submitted. I took inspiration from the 80s and used bright, vibrant colors and an older television. No copyrighted images could be utilized so I decided put the focus on gamers as a community rather than any one console or company. The rules outlined that only four colors could be used so I went with a simple color scheme. The name of the conference as well as the abbreviation “ECGC” were also to be featured in the design.
I drew out the illustration by hand before vectoring the image using Illustrator. I colored the illustration using Photoshop. The East Coast Gaming Conference font was supplied.
Jerry’s Artarama needed artwork for a promotional giveaway that was being shared on the company’s Facebook page. The artwork needed to use the advertised canvas boards as well as adhere to company standards and showcase other featured products.
I created a painting for them to use as well as helped to ‘stage’ the photo. The painting was made using acrylic gouache on textured canvas board.
As of March 2019, This illustration was chosen as the second place winner for the Wake Technical Community College’s Northern Campus mural!
Wake Technical Community College’s North Campus was looking for submission’s for a mural to be hung in the student lounge. I chose to go with something that represented North Carolina so I went with a lighthouse. I wanted to emulate a sunset so I chose a warmer color palette. I also knew that I wanted to do a postcard design so I went with a font that was reminiscent of old postcards and added in a white border.
AIGA Raleigh, the Raleigh chapter of the professional association for design, worked together with HP Graphic Arts to collect over 100 greeting cards for patients at St. Jude’s Childrens’ Research Hospital. These illustrations were created to be child-friendly but encompass a wide audience. Emphasis was placed on illustration and typography.
I was tasked with creating a flyer that would be given to Artsplosure sponsors with information on the First Night event. The front half was to contain infographics breaking down demographics, costs, etc. while the back would be a collage of images from the event.
I worked on this technical illustration utilizing Adobe Illustrator. I worked with a series of sketches and decided that an exploded view would work best. The process involved using an isometric grid to ensure correct proportions and using a variety of gradients to get a realistic, 3D look.
For this week of class, we were tasked with creating a website in WordPress that would include a Home page, Contact info, and any supplementary information required to make the site complete. I chose to design a WordPress page for a brewing company called Bob’s Brewery. I did some research by looking up the websites of local breweries and seeing what information they chose to include. I knew that I needed a page of the types of beer offered as well as a map of the building location and hours of operation.
I went with a layout that was simple enough to navigate but without it being too bare bones. This is the logo I created for the site as well as the site link:
