Badass SLP / Fresh SLP
Book cover | Posters
Design a book cover to be used on Kindle Direct Publishing and two posters that would be used at a conference.
My contribution to both projects was the design aspect and placement of digital assets and content in a meaningful way that best depicted her intentions.
The objectives and deliverables, initially were to create a book cover using images my client had sent me for inspiration that she had found on Canva. We had to determine if we could use the images for the project first, and after determining that I set about designing the cover with the content she had suggested.
The next deliverable she asked me to work on was completing two posters that another designer had begun, but was unable to finish. I was instructed to prepare the documents in a print-ready format.
I drew upon book covers I had seen in the past to create a simple yet elegant design. My client didn’t want anything fancy and was on a tight deadline and needed everything done by the following day. I set to work in Photoshop and then transferred everything to Illustrator and saved the documents out as PDF’s for the printer.
Business Report Card
Create four infographics for poster-sized prints that would be used in an office environment.
The goal was to take an Excel spreadsheet that had been generated by the owner and convery the elements in a straightforward way with imagery. I made icons for each of the key points and depicted graphically the message he wanted to convey to his viewers.
I took all of the content he provided textually and organized it in a way that was aesthetically pleasing. This was a categorizing project and illustrates how I was able to take a text-based document and turn it into stylish infographics.
I studied various posters and infographics online to come up with what I felt described exactly what my client wanted to show. This entailed looking at several different graphical depictions of information organized in hierarchical methodology. There were several different drafts of this project before my client decided that they were perfect. I worked exclusively in Illustrator for these posters and saved them out as PDF’s for the printer.
KC Boutiette “Back to Worlds 2021”
KC had already drawn some images and sent them to me to follow exactly. It was pretty straightforward. He needed two images for the front and back of the t-shirt.
I gathered images from Google of the Back to The Future poster from the movie, and found a flux capacitor image online and using the pen tool in Illustrator traced the outline of each image. I had to skew the words to fit the angles correctly and then took the photograph he had taken of himself and did an outline of the image in Photoshop. I pulled up the outline and placed it inside the flux capacitor and then took an image of an inline skate I found online and traced that in Illustrator with the pen tool making an icon out of it.
KC asked me to design a t-shirt for him using the Back to the Future logo and the Flux Capacitor imagery. These shirts were then printed and sold at the World’s Figure Skating Competition 2021.
I took his hand drawn images and turned them into vector graphics in Illustrator.
Medical Wellness Clinics
Logo | Business Cards | Website | Rack Cards | Outdoor signage
I was approached by the owner of Medical Wellness Clinics to create his website and come up with a logo and corporate identity materials including business cards and an outdoor sign to be used at his place of business.
I chose the color blue in various hues to represent his business as blue represents professionalism and dependability. I wanted his logo to be solid and chose to add the caduceus to it to show that his business was related to the medical field. I looked at other websites in his line of work and decided to take a similar approach so that it was recognizable to visitors without being difficult to navigate or overly cumbersome. We wanted people to be able to find his number readily so they could call and set up an appointment, as well as be able to use navigation so they could find his business easily.

This project entailed coming up with a color palette that would be used for his branding guidelines, use images provided by the various product vendors and create a logo that depicted his company as a trustworthy medical business. I was also asked to create a sign that would be printed onto plexiglass and placed in the front entrance at the business center where he was located.
All of this work was created by me, and other than the photographs used in the images from the vendors, all aspects of the deliverables were my creation.
Rocket Fueled Energy
For this project i worked closely with the owner and his investors for several days. I submitted several different designs for approval until we decided on an final concept and then came up with a package design using mockups I had generated in Photoshop.
I was approached by the owner of the company to create a logo and add the text so they integrated seamlessly with one another.
I was asked to design a logo consisting of a retro-style rocket ship and come up with an interesting way to depict the name of the company that was both modern and appealing to the younger generation.
I wanted to use gradients for the text, because I felt it was more modern at the time, and came up with a unique way to style the lettering so that it was fun and appealing to the eye. The rocket ship was to be a retro comical style, and I first drew out the rocket ship by hand on graphing paper and then scanned and uploaded that drawing into Illustrator and used the pen tool to finalize the outline and then add the colors and finishing shadows.
Stir Cider Co.
This was a logo for a craft beer company that was changing their current label on their Beauregard craft cider beer.
I had to have a firm knowledge of California state law regarding alcohol labels as well as knowledge of the requirements of the TTB for label approval. They wanted the label to cover 2/3 of the can leaving the upper 1/3 of the aluminum exposed.
I had been given a specific set of rules and regulations to follow, and beyond making a few icons for the label I had little creative control over the project. The biggest contribution I made to this project was my knowledge of regulatory conditions set by the Alcohol, Tobacco and Tax Bureau.
