Class Design Studies
Illustrator has become one of my favorite Adobe Creative Suite products. These are some of my earlier studies using the tool.
This is a business card I designed for myself.
I had the opportunity to design a chapbook for one of my favorite fonts, Futura. I illustrated characters from the Legion of Super-Heroes since their storylines take place in the 31st century.
One assignment I had was to illustrate an image based off a Latin saying. Inspired by the advertising campaign for the movie, Watchmen, I illustrated a character based off a comic book panel from the graphic novel of the same name. The Latin phrase is "Who Watches the Watchmen?"
The Loyola University Chicago School of Communication had a T-Shirt design contest. My design won for the back of the shirt.
Using Adobe InDesign and Photoshop, I created multiple digital graphics for class assignments that required the blending of text and photography in a creative layout.
The assignment was to create a map using text and images. I decided to focus my map on my experience abroad in Rome. I used pictures that I took on the weekends when I was out with friends to describe our walk through downtown Rome.
This is an advertisement to sell "my brand" to a future employer in ten years that I created in my mass media advertising class. We had to write a fictionalized account of what we would love to do in ten years and design an advertisement to go along with the copy.
