Wedding season is here and look who's a maid of honor! Yah yah yah! As maid of honor, one of my wedding gifts to the happy couple (Larissa and Bobby) was a custom designed wedding invitation and insert. Larissa had a hard time choosing just one picture so we decided to make a mini booklet with one main photograph on top, the information behind that, and a little surprise collage on the back. We had to do all of this with not a lot of money. It turned out to be around $300 which isn't too bad for invitations, I don't think. All in all, it was a blast to design these for one of my best friends.

For work I had to design a poster and brochures meant to teach people about the importance of keeping your feet healthy. Sounds kind of silly, but they're pretty important! I wanted to have a simple but strong message come across in the posters and brochures. I like to think I succeeded.

My church stake was holding a friendly competition called "March Madness." The month of March was dedicated as a 'service month.' All the wards in the stake tried to get the most service hours. This hand-out was designed with Christlike service in mind. The doves represent that. One is reaching down to help another so that they both can fly. The type is beautiful and simple - just like service!
This was a school project that I really enjoyed. We had to choose a magazine that was trendy but had a lot of room for improvement. I chose the magazine Filter. I respect the way it's designed now, I just wanted to give it a more "high-fashion" feel. This is one spread for the feature article.
I did this poster for work. The profit sharing meeting was for the whole company (roughly 500-800 people). This meeting usually has a bad rap of being excruciatingly boring so I implemented the corporate colors and made the flyer exciting with the tilted type and the speaker made up of type. I had a lot of fun doing this.
Park's Sportsman is a local snowboard and ski shop. I designed these "bag stuffers" with young snowboarders and skiers in mind. The colors are slightly muted to represent the personality of all snowboarders I've known. They're all real chill, down to earth kids. The bold and distressed fonts make the piece a bit more masculine but not to the point that the female demographic feels left out.
Alpha Dog is a company that specializes in canine products, specifically crates and humane bandages so your poor puppy doesn't have to wear those cones around their heads. I wanted to create a look that represented the friendliness and the humanity of this company. The colors are bright and attention-grabbing while the logo itself shows why dogs are man's best friend.
