My university commission me to make a poster for an ethnic music festival. I’m looking forward to seeing some Fins perform next week! Also side note: I love getting paid to design. Seriously. Best freaking job ever.
I designed the labels for these delightful scrubs made by The Cupcake Girls (organization that aids prostitutes). Hopefully these two will be delivered to their owners this weekend.
Since we’re working on a limited budget these aren’t actually stickers. They were printed from home, covered in clear packing tape to make them water resistant, and attached with double stick tape. If anyone is used to working with a small budget it’s me c:
Working with The Cupcake Girls has been so fulfilling and rewarding. Lately, I had been feeling really lost when it came to my future career plans. After volunteering for this non-profit, I see that I could never work for a company that didn’t have a conscience. So many designers work for companies that don’t care about the public, and only have their bottom line in mind. I realize advertising/branding for large corporations is where the money is at, but I just can’t pursue it. I’m sticking with my passion and my heart. Instead of dreading facing the real world, I’m now excited to get in there and pour myself and my design into organizations worth working for.
I whipped this poster up this weekend. Who doesn’t love Audrey Hepburn?
Oh dear, long time no post. I’ve been spending a lot of time staying up, sleeping in, and working on my application to study abroad! Here’s the resume I’m handing in for my graphic design internship in London.
Here is the third and final advertisement in the campaign I designed for Modcloth (for a class, unfortunately not real life).
Sorry for the month long hiatus! I have been unbelievably busy, but somehow I made it to summer. Expect more creations ahead! In the meantime, here’s another Modcloth ad I made.
I worked on a fictional ad campaign for school. Unfortanately, Modcloth isn’t my actual client, but I tried to make things as realistic as possible. I designed these ads to appear in Teen Vogue. My favorite part was definitely writing the head/tag lines. There are three ads in all. I hope you like them!
I just realized I have never featured any of my graphic design on my blog. So here’s a book cover from last semester. I am indeed a graphic design major, for those of you who didn’t know.
