Developed relational skills through greeting and serving customers. Learned to multi-task and work calmly under pressure.
In Vis Comm II we had to design a poster for the Edinburgh Fringe arts festival. The festival attracts a very diverse crowd so I tried to create a visually dynamic poster. (13x19 in)
This is a logo I designed for GRT, Grand Rapids Technologies. They manufacture airplane parts. We researched the company and came up with a logo, letterhead, business cards, and envelopes.
For Vis Com I, we needed to create a detailed itinerary for someone traveling to Brissago, Switzerland. I came up with this design. It's clear and easy to read, geometric, and swiss-inspired.
In Vis Comm II, we had to pick a product and do a new add campaign. I choose Lucky Charms and wanted to market it to an older audience.So I did 3 winning gambling senarios with lucky charms as the suit, dice and lotto "charms"
I designed the invitations, banner, cups, plates, napkins, streamers, party hat, and advice book for a bridal shower.
This is a book I made called, Peanut Butter & Jelly Need a Day Off. The book follows them around on their adventures.
These are three out of the nine holiday posters I designed. we created 21 posters all together.
This was a group project. We re-did the signage, slogan, and magazine ads for a local bakery.
Otterbein is choosing postcards to hand out during the inauguration of our new college president. This is the first one I designed.
In Computer Art II, we made self portraits. we had to pick a part of our life for our focus, so I chose my adoption. I included necklaces given to me by both mothers signifying my adoption, pictures, an adoption poem, and a tattoo of a dove my birthmother and I share that I designed.
This was our final in Computer Art I. We had to create a series and my theme was fall. I took pictures of trees and designed these on Photoshop.
We did a series on leaves and branches. We did several sketches and got to add our own style to them.
I did this in Design class for an architectural rendering. I chose to do stippling which is lots of tiny dots, with a ballpoint pen. It took me well over 20 hours. I won an award for it in our juried student art show.
This was one of the first pieces I did in my first Otterbein art class, junior year.
This was done for a motion project in my drawing class.
I painted 3 paintings what were similar in style, then I tore them apart and stitched them together.
This piece was inspired my Beatriz Milhaze. She's a painter who uses paint as collage. She pours paint onto glass, lets it dry, peals it off, then applies it in layers to the canvas.
I found a picture of a pixilated scarlet Johanson and wanted to do a painting in stippling. I used an overhead to get the form on the canvas then did lots of little paint dots and added some bright colors on top of that. This made it into our student art group show.
these are my diptychs. I love bright colors and these are 2 of my favorite. The one on the left was in the juried student art show.
