This was an entry into the poster competition for the Ruston, Louisiana Peach Festival. I didn’t win, but this was my first semi-professional try at a fully digital illustration. At least I got a decent independent study grade.
Gary Hauser, Professor of Graphic Design, at Louisiana Tech designed this brochure for the city of Ruston, Louisiana. He asked me to complete a cleaned up production ready file. This included some of the graphic chart elements and setting up the file for four color separation with a gloss for the bow on the cover.
A personal illustration piece. I think I used it as extra credit for a grade. It was completed before I moved to Monroe, Louisiana for my payed internship. I was frustrated with the move and this was my outlet.
This was a multimedia project completed for the student art exhibit at Louisiana Tech. This was completed using Director and ran a simple slideshow with music that displayed selected graphic design student work. The purpose of the project was to display the work of students who had taken their design portfolios to the Dallas Society of Visual Communicators portfolio review.
This was another project where I worked on the final production. The original book design was by Jennifer Anderson and I was asked to set up the final files for print. There were a couple of special pages using velum and spot colors that required some special production work.
Southern Voices was a publication highlighting a collection of entries into an annual writing competition for the Cedar Creek School in Ruston, Louisiana.
This was a fictional company campaign completed for an interdependent study course. The fictional company was an on call support center specifically to help members of graphic design industry deal with production related problems. The student project was geared toward the creation of the logo and the creation of two digital illustration pieces. I’m still not happy with the final layout choices in the magazine ads.
This was an entry into an poster contest for promoting art scholarships to the Louisiana Tech School of Art. The design called for a pretty complicated two color print that was ruled two expensive. I didn’t win the competition, but pushing the limits of two color print work was very interesting.
