This poster was designed as a gift to the donors that give freely to the Caine College of the Arts here at Utah State University. It symbolizes the four parts of the college running together as one.

Here is the latest creating in my repertoire of creations. This is my personal portfolio site that I designed in flash/actionscript 3.0. I wanted to learn how to incorporate an XML file as a database for my content. Feel free to explore.

This website was done using actionscript 3.0 and a little HTML/CSS. The goal of this site development was to create a flash game for children between the ages of 3-5. I had to do research as to how someone of that age navigates a site/game on the internet to play it. I tried to make it functional, easy to use as well as fun to play. It was a challenge to try and design to that demographic but it was fun. Check it out!

This is part of a 30 page publication that I just finished. I had to find a unique quality or characteristic that I possess and brand myself around that idea. I tried to stylize the publication with many different type and image relationships while keeping the thread of an extrinsic life, running throughout the publication. The publication also includes part of my portfolio. I used stock images as well as my own to personalize the brand. Here are a few samples of some of the spreads.

These are logos I made for a venture motorcycle sales company based in Havana Cuba. They are a sleek new company that fixes old motorcycles and sales them to the public. Motorcycles and scooters are rare in Cuba because of their price but an extremely useful commodity.

One of my favorite books is the Count of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas. The book cover on this book is either none existent or is a general cover produced by the publisher. So I wanted to take a crack at re-designing it using some photo I had and giving it a bigger title with a more appropriate type face.
Pictograms and signs are everywhere in our society. They communicate direct symbolism without the use of words. I wanted to create some of these and I chose a food theme. Each animal produces a delicious meat thus providing unity in the theme.
My goal was to find a quote that i could use to illustrate the meaning of a certain photo to create type and image continuity. I chose this quote that has to deal with slapping and tried to show a hand in motion. I used the lines of the hands to create direction of the text as well.
This Project was rad. The project was to make a brochure for a museum. I chose the Natural History Museum of London. I research the museum and found out their most popular exhibits as well as what made the museum unique, the architecture both inside and outside the building. I wanted to make the brochure pop so on the cover I used a vivid image and added some typography to the title that would provide interest to the view and make them want to pick it up. I also made the entire brochure vibrantly colored as to give the feeling a family welcoming environment. The colors give a sense of what the animals look like and the photos give a sample of what visitors can expect.
Here are a few examples of magazine layouts I've created. One is a spread about the origins of the printing press and graphic arts. The other is three spreads about classic monster movie characters and their lives off the screen. Both spreads were created using Adobe Illustrator and InDesign.
My goal on this project was to chose a Greek symbol, in this case Lambda, and try to emphasize the symbol in one comp, the text in the other, and the display design in the other. This was also a chance for me to explore different designs with the copy and how it would relate to the overall design.
Playing around with different words and font styles, i came up with a few different typograms. I didn't want to illustrate too much, I was set on seeing what I could do by just manipulating a few of the letterforms to create each word's meaning.
