Here is a butterfly on a flower that I made completely out of shapes (with the pen tool)

This was a poster I designed in a typography class. It was called a directional poster. I had to take a typical walk from home to the art building and make it into a poster. I loved the colors and the hectic-ness the poster has... it was a lot of fun to make!!

This is a Call for Entries ad I designed for print magazine. It was a class assignment. We were to only use two colors (with different blending effects), and fit all the information provided on a letter sized paper. It was really intense but I loved working on it. I was very pleased with my designs!!

Christmas Cards ♥

For Christmas this year my mom wanted me to design our christmas cards! I was very excited to use my own creativity to do something nice for my family. I came up with four versions...

Happy Holidays!!! :)

This is the first version I made. I wanted to make a very holiday-ish looking card and this is what I came up with.

For this card I chose to go with a decorative theme. I wanted to use bright colors and make it fun looking. This is my sister Suzi's favorite design :)

This is the third design I created. My mom wanted me to mention somewhere that the Mumma's were scattered around everywhere, so I came up with Kathleen in New York, Jeff in Wisconsin, Stephanie, Suzi and Kevin in Bowling Green, Everyone home for the holidays! She really liked the look of this one, however the tree at the bottom did not print right, so we could not choose this version.

This is the final version I made for my family. I liked this one because it was completely different from all the usual Christmas cards you receive in the mail. It is very bold and abstract yet still shows the love and holiday spirit of my family!
This is the winner, the one we printed!!-- You should be getting it in the mail soon!! :)

Merry Christmas
