I’m in the process of planning a One a Day project. It would start at the beginning of one month with the first piece and an article explaining every facet of my life (i.e. future plans, current thoughts, a few ideas about design, my philosophies on design, etc…). It would end exactly one year from …
Lord of the Flies
This project was to use a series of predetermined words and phrases and then create a Logotype for that phrase. We were, also, only allowed to use black and white. It was an interesting project that strayed a bit away from traditional logos; it helped us learn to better pair type and illustration.
Cruel Intentions – Impact Regular
FTANG! – custom font (based loosely on Damn Noisy Kids)
Illusion – Univers 49 Ultra Light Condensed
Lord of the Flies – Helvetica Neue Black / Helvetica Neue Light

I have to design a brand for a Nikola Tesla themed bistro. Still in the sketch phase right now but much more to come.
This is a collection of Design Bits. They are kind of like little words of design wisdom; what you would find in a design fortune cookie. It’s something I’d like to offer weekly and, maybe, even design these gems into a nice poster. Here’s a couple to get us started:
- Design can be changed at any point during the process. No design is ever set in stone.
- We’re looking for artistic solutions to the problems we are given. Unlike math, there is always more than one right answer.
- If you wouldn’t put your own name on a project, why would the person you’re representing want to put theirs on it.
These are mostly thoughts I’ve collected so the quotation doesn’t need to be exact when we attempt to turn these into posters.
The Prequel: I was explaining to my Graphic/Web Design professor that the problem with php contact forms was that you could enter any email address and it would send to the recipient under that email. I gave the example that I could send the entire class an email from our professor canceling class. In a challenging …
My newest project for Graphic Design 4 is to create an identity for a restaurant. I have to choose between an author, artist, or scientist to theme the restaurant around them. I’m thinking Nikola Tesla, or George Orwell, or doing some research in the field of chemistry/biochemistry to give myself plenty of forms to work …
Here’s something from my sketchbook the requirements were: Saul Bass, new and old, agriculture, and tension.
One of my pieces was submitted to the Daegu University International Exhibition in South Korea. Super stoked.
Here were some ideas for a Joy Poster project. We were attempting to inspire joy through a series of posters class wide.
Hopefully the 2nd letter will be up shortly. Font: Neutraface 2 Display Titling
