This project I created in Illustrator as an 8-page fold-up booklet that tells the story of how I met my web host. I choose a font that would best represent the story and enlarged and colorized the first letter of each paragraph. I also choose graphic elements that represent what is being talked about on each page and even included some of the first things I ever created in Photoshop that directly relate to the story.

I created this is a project in Photoshop for Eric Bulls to promote his new start-up company that he made me co-owner of. He wanted to do a design that incorporated an iPhone, red carpet, social media icons, and a scan-able QR code. He also wanted me to use the logo I had previously created for our company. The version on the left was the first thing I came up with and the version on the left was the final version we came up with.

This is a project I created in Illustrator with an oxymoron theme. I choose the phrase “Holy Hell” because it is a common phrase where each word is the polar opposite of the other and I figured I could represent each with graphic elements that represent each perfectly. For example, the way I gave “Holy” angel wings and “Hell” a devil’s tail and used colors that best represented each.

My goal was to incorporate everything that fascinates me into the design of my self-portrait. I posed for this intending to add the swords in later.

Physics Typography

I designed this in Illustrator for my Typography class. As you can probably tell, I am fascinated by physics and had a lot of fun figuring out where I should place each word in a way that made sense.

Fictional CD Cover

  • Full Image

This is a fictional album cover I created completely in Photoshop to demonstrate my passion for music and the universe. The background is various different images blended together using overlays to give it the feel of a club in outer space. Then I cut out the image of the DJ and her turntable from their background and placed them into my design. Then I duplicated her a few times and placed them in lower layers gradually increasing their opacity to make it look like she is moving to the music. I also cut out an image of the Sun and placed it so it would look like it is hovering over her turntable.  Then I found an image of flames and used the background eraser to remove its background then brought it into my design and duplicated and rotated it a bunch of times to give the sun a bunch of solar flares. Then I thought of a fitting name for the DJ and the album and positioned the text for them. Lastly, I used a filter on the text to make it look like the letters have icicles hanging off them to represent the coldness of the vacuum of outer space.

Status Vodka Christmas Promo

This is a project I did completely in Photoshop for Eric Bulls & Jocovi Lindsey of Status Vodka. It is a Christmas banner to promote Status Vodka. For the background, I blended two different images together using overlay. I positioned the text and used filters to give it a metallic look that shines. Lastly, I cut out an image of the Status Vodka bottle from its background and positioned it so the girl would be looking right at it.

Sex Appeal Magazine Cover

  • Full Image

This is a project I did mostly in Photoshop except for the text which I created in Illustrator. It is a magazine cover I did for Eric Bulls’ of Sex Appeal Magazine. He wanted it to look like the Scarface movie poster which is the reason I chose the fonts and colors I used. He also supplied me with the image of the model which I had to cut out of her background to place on this cover. He also had me make various touch-ups to her skin as well as slim her stomach slightly. I also included his barcode and layout the text for the binding and top bar. Lastly I designed the “S Rating” in the bottom right corner to keep up the movie poster theme while staying true to his brand.

Yasko’s Tunnel Vision Promo

I created this mostly in Photoshop except for the text which I created in Illustrator. I created this poster for Emily Yasko to help promote her new album as well as her official website which I also designed for her. It incorporates her “Tunnel Vision” album cover with an image of an actual tunnel, which I blended together with overlays. I also cut an image of her out of its background and placed her right in the center of the image on the top layer. Lastly, I added her website URL and name where they best fit.

Movie Title Frame

  • Full Image

I created this project mostly in Photoshop except for the text which I created in Illustrator. It is an opening title screen for a movie I want to see made even though Carl Sagan is no longer with us to write the book. I used Photoshop to cut the spaceship out of its background and placed it on this space background with the top of the earth and the moon. I created the shadowing over the earth that the spaceship would cause and added the title “Contact II” and the catch phrase “The time is now” from illustrator and gave it a glow effect.

I created this project in Illustrator to represent the font “Romance Fatal Serif” the way it looks in various different styles like bold, italic, and bold italic. I also choose fitting a passage from Virgil’s “The Aeneid” to show how these styles can be used in a publication.

3D Particle Text Intro/Outro Animation

I created this in Adobe AfterEffects using a tutorial by Edge-CGI at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rWkWm7tmsOU and using Element 3D from www.VideoCopilot.net. It says Wax because I am a huge fan of the Rapper Wax and he is my motivation to learn video editing and FX.
