Ok, so I lied. I didn’t get around to posting this yesterday. Apparently I’ve been enjoying my freedom from school.
Plus, before I started a blog, I was debating on having one about graphic design and my work or about fitness and eating. I started with this one, but still really wanted a healthy living one, so I’ve been working on another one which has taken up some of my time.
Anyways. here are most of the pieces I showed at portfolio review. There’s still some work to be done, but I’m pretty happy with how they are progressing.
This piece was done in Adobe Illustrator from a rough sketch. It was for my digital image piece.
This book was one of my favorite projects. It was for Advanced Layout. We wrote our own books, took all the photos, completely designed it and even printed and built them. I love building stuff, so this was a lot of fun.
I had one large project that took me 2 quarters to complete. I may have mentioned it before, but it was called Magical Tales. It was a company that I created, branded and designed collateral for. It is a store where children come in, write their own books and we print and bind them for them to take home. The main character is a frog.
This is the stationery. I know it’s a little hard to see, sorry.
A sample book. I drew all the images. The first shows the template the story would be in before the kid fills in the blanks. Then there’s a finished version without color because the kid takes it home to color. And then there’s a final version.
As I mentioned, this isn’t my full portfolio, but some were too complex to really show in photographs. I will definitely try for my final portfolio before I graduate. Plus, you’ll see more process since I’ll keep posting through my next quarter =)
