I redesigned 3 of the Janet Evanovich Stephanie Plum novel series. I chose the first three books, One for the Money, Two for the Dough, and Three to get Deadly. I took the photos in downtown Kirksville and manipulated them to convey a sinister mood because the books deal a lot with crime and shady characters.

I designed a series of posters for the Pecha Kucha St. Louis event series. I took specific information from a previous event on the website
Pecha Kucha events originated in Tokyo and have expanded to cities all over the world. These events allow designers to meet, network, and share work. The concept of 20 x 20 is also important to Pecha Kucha because the presentation format is 20 images- each up for 20 seconds. I wanted to make sure both the name of the event and the 20 x 20 was prominent in each design.
My concept for the series was to visualize the creative, expressive, even chaotic brainstorming/inspiration process of many in creative fields.
I created packaging for a fictional Chinese tea company called Tea Fusion. The two types I designed packaging for were green tea and black tea. The logo was designed with the chinese type in mind. I cut a window in the side of the packages to show the individual tea packets.
I've been away from my blog for a while, so I'm now going to post the projects from the second half of last semester.
I'll start with a set of promotional postcards for Truman.
I focused my postcard set on the types of activities students can get involved in at Truman. I believe getting involved is one of the most important things a student can do once they're away at college. The front of my eight postcards each feature a still life that depicts a chosen activity such as Greek Life, Recreation, and Campus Media. The backs of each postcard pulled an object from the front photo and set it against a simple band of color.
The postcards were 5 x 7 in, full color- duplexed, and feature my own photography

This project was one that I really enjoyed doing and one that I'm very proud of. I decided to focus my message on animal abuse awareness. After debating with several taglines and sets of imagery I decided to go with "Obedience Training?" and "Twisted Discipline?" with the statistic "Every 10 seconds an animal is abused or beaten". The final posters are 16 x 21. All photography is my own and the posters were rendered in Photoshop.
The next project we did in Advanced Digital Graphics (from here on out referred to as ADG) was a stamp series relating to our major (Visual Communications) or an extracurricular activity. I chose to relate the series to viscom and decided to depict various types of tools used in the graphic design field (pencil, paint brush, x-acto knife, wacom tablet, pen). I shot all the photography used. The whole series was rendered in Photoshop.
