Well after some editing, reviews, and just dead time in between where our priority shifted to other things it was finalized today. The high resolution photos were acquired from Shutterstock after approval, pretty standard practice. For this publication we just use a front/back page layout that is sent via email or fax predominately and a few will be printed off in-house to take to trade shows.

I learned design largely through “Photoshop Tennis” or “Photoshop Battles” - having nobody to play with anymore I’m playing myself at the moment. Using the Gestalt image I had already made for a base I then created this.

Next one in geometry.

I’m working on a set of designs emphasizing perception through geometric shapes. More to come.

I’ve been thinking more and more about going for an MFA. I’m thinking about doing an MFA focused on the psychological and neurological aspects. The photo is a picture I took while in Puerto Rico and the design is a quick exploration of Gestalt.

A brief tutorial using a real world example to illustrate how to use some basic kerning and leading in text placement. 

Sped up the speed due to time restrictions on youtube.

3 DRAFTS for the 2012 Textile Blue Book Media Kit. Now my superior will pick one and then we’ll order the necessary photos from Shutterstock and finalize it in high quality.
(I didn’t realize tumblr had size limits that I must’ve gone over since its not displaying anywhere close to full size. Good to know for next time.)

Advertisement I did around this time last year, it must’ve been successful because they’re advertising again and just had me make some small changes. Namely changed one of the product lines they carry and they sent over a new logo. Ad size is 2-5/16” x 2-1/2”.

Marketing Ad for the company I work for. It is 8.5” x 11” and will go inside an acrylic stand for display on our table at trade shows. (I’m new to this whole tumblr thing and will have to investigate if there’s an option to add a border. If not, I’ll upload this image with an edge around it so you can see the boundary better.)
