There’s a satisfaction sometimes to getting your hands dirty. Sanding, cleaning and etching a stone and turning it into art is one of those satisfying yet frustrating art forms.
Facebook group owner of Netflix Streaming Movies needed a cool cover photo to represent the group.
Images had to suggest the Netflix brand in color, logotype and style. Below themes were: classic movie red featuring various streaming players, an after-dark special and a high tech streaming look.
If you are a fan of discussing Netflix movies, you can join the Facebook group here.
With St. Patty’s Day around the corner, it’s time to show your love for all Irish and green! And I couldn’t have had more fun designing these quirky vectors.

Besides graphic design, I love photography. There’s photography and then there’s landscapes and nature and beauty. This is what I love capturing and editing.
These photos were taken in WA state at Deception Pass Trail.
Kobo Rebranding Project will be uploaded shortly! Meanwhile, enjoy this sneak peek video:
*Disclaimer: This project was for my master’s final campaign and was not sponsored by Kobo.
Beyond The Runway is a new subsidiary brand of FATA (Florida Aviation Trade Association).
It is an advocacy program that targets the non=aviation community in order to raise awareness of aviation benefits for the local community, government, conservationists, businesses and more.
The Beyond The Runway logo had to suggest an airplane, a runway, accessibility, friendliness, and the optional tagline.
The logo clearly suggests a simplified image of an airplane taking off and flying above the runway. The green runway also translates as land, community and the swoosh represents speed.
This project was created for “Harap Alb,” a Romanian folklore translated by English teacher V. Georgescu. The project required a full color book cover and black and white chapter titles. For the covers, I depicted the main characters of the story including major locations depicted in the scenery. I conceptualized the style of the illustration to be a mixture between rough and hand-drawn illustrations with child-like simplicity. The rough feel relates to the age of the folklore and the time period it was created in and it also relates to Eastern European Orthodox religious art featuring strong outlines, simple details and bright colors. Each chapter title was created to look like a rough pencil drawing to add to the stark monotone contrast.

I’m starting out my new blog, again, with a bang. An emotional bag. I’m looking for a job. Not just a job…a career, a wonderful graphic design position that will make me flourish beyond my expectations. Freelancing is fun, there are clients, anytime hours, working in baggy clothes and good rates. But there isn’t communication, director influence, multiple ongoing projects. And rigid structure is self directed and can be misinterpreted easily by willingness or accident.
Basically, I personally feel a little young in my field to self prescribe all solutions. I like being in charge but I still want to learn more and experience.
So every day I look at my resume, tweak it for each application, apply it for multiple jobs and yes each application receives a cover letter whether asked for or not. So for each application, I rewrite who I am in a cover letter and proceed to spend a long time writing out the application. I’m not complaining (if it offends anyone) and I am (if it pulls on anyone’s heartstrings enough to offer me a career entrance.)
Taking a break from my daily activities, I want to mention that I love the tv show CSI; Las Vegas is no. 1 and unfortunately Netflix only offers Miami…but either way, I still watch it because Jerry Bruckheimer adds some essential components to each series: dedication and passion.
Wrapping this up…I promise. I was blissfully watching an episode from Season 2 and I was feeling joyful for some reason and a bulb clicked and I realized how much enjoyment I get out of watching the CSI’s work. Then I realized that I’m actually the happiest in my life when I work. And then going deeper, I realized that looking for a job is just another part of my career, and it’s still about graphic design, still about art, still about fulfilling what I love doing the most. So in the end, whether it doesn’t feel right sometimes or I don’t see it, I’m still executing some action in the graphic design world.
So the slipper fits, my life fits. But I prefer the stylus because going to work in slippers doesn’t sound very professional.
Designing an envelope from scratch can be an easy task with a clear template.
Included envelope templates are: A-style, Baronial & Commercial
More information can be found at: http://www.neenahpaper.com/Resources/AboutEnvelopes/EnvelopeTypes/Announcements
- Commonly used for invitations or other social announcements.
- A-style refers to the square cut flap instead of an ordinary rounded or triangle cut.
- Baronial envelopes are the traditional envelopes you would use to mail a party invitation. Think of the bulk party invitations sold by supermarkets with preprinted designs.
- They are stockier and feature a rounded triangle flap.
- This is our most common envelope; we use it daily for business and paying bills.
- They feature a long and rectangular shape. Flap shapes vary from rounded, square to bracket.
For the Color Run, a group of Navy wives wanted a custom t-shirt design.
The Color Run is a 5K run in which colors are the main theme. For every 1K mark, volunteers douse runners with buckets and packets of color powder and each station has a different color. Runners are highly encouraged to dress wildly and have a great time.
Majority of runners sign up in a group. The USS NEW group is composed of Navy wives. USS is the traditional acronym for United States Ship, which is followed by the ship’s name, in this case being: NEW. NEW stands for Navy Everett Wives.
*The acronym concept was already established when I was approached for the design.
I felt an accurate depiction of the running trail would be a great conversation topic and maybe even a map for a fellow runner to use.
The logo for this secret Facebook group had to represent the wittiness, secrecy, and spunk of those who represent it.
Team Nimitz FRG is a family readiness group that aids Navy families with information, support and socializing. I was asked to refresh the old logo and rebrand the FRG to give it a solid and individual visual. While the project was eventually not accepted due to legalities, the rebranding campaign was well received.
Fleur De Lynn Photography wanted to attract new business and capture attention while maintaining old business. The owner asked me to create a new brand.
The essence of Fleur De Lynn was elegance and soulfulness with popping imagery and friendly photographs.
While designing for the USS Nimitz FRG, I was asked to design the 2011 USS Nimitz Family Holiday Party. The party was semi formal and was open to both single sailors and families. I was inspired to create a winter wonderland theme expressing both cheerfulness and formality.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from LSU in fall of 2010. Our university’s art gallery graciously let the designers and artists graduating to open an exhibition for our graduation featuring our work. I designed the invitational postcard.
Cat Haven is a non profit cat shelter in La. For my design thesis class, I worked with this company in rebranding their company. Focus was directed towards photography of cats and was aided by whimsical illustrations. My solution to earning more income was creating a masked gala as a fundraiser. The cat mask would also double as the invitation. Inexpensive yet unique.
Two professors at NSU in La asked me to create a professional yet mathematically unique and fun business card for each
Created as a project for one of my design classes, I wanted to combine my photography and illustration skills into two art pieces: both showing morphing creatures.
