I’ve seen some awesome dual exposure photoshop pieces lately, so I decided to try a few myself. This one is my favorite so far. I like the surrealism of nature being intertwined with a person, even if it is just me in a hat.
I’m also thinking about making this my hero image on my home page. I still have to consider everything, but it’s looking pretty good. I’ve been working on a ton of new stuff this week, and I’m posting the coolest. Check out my other stuff from this week! Here’s some custom script I designed. Enjoy!
I’ve been doing some more personal work in my spare time than usual. I love this time because it really lets me open up my creativity and try new design elements. I’m posting a couple things I’ve worked on in the last week because… well just because! Enjoy.
Recently I was asked to create a party invitation. The info I was given included that it’s a pool party barbecue with a Hawaiian theme. I also was told there was a corn-hole tournament that would be taking place. This is what I came up with,
There’s a pig wearing a shirt, which is always a cool thing.
It looks pretty sound to me. Beyond all the details, elements of design, and color theories used, I’ll just say that if I received this invite, I would be impressed and looking forward to a sweet party!
Has anyone had pineapple on their burger? It sounds really good to me…
I have a lot of old photos on a computer in my house that I still need to look through. My Dad loved photography and jumped in to that hobby with full commitment. I mean, he got a tripod, a monopod, extra zoom lenses, and extra memory cards. He was really good at it too! He took a lot of pictures of my brother and I playing baseball, riding motorcycles, even our senior photos. He also got a swing coach for me when I was younger. All of this seems to have come around because:
My Dad took these pictures of my swing that he paid for, and I used my college education in Graphic Design (which he also paid for) to make this GIF.
Looking through old pictures is tough, but it’s also sort of therapeutic. After I’m done looking through them, I find myself to be more reflective of the good memories and remember them fondly. Of course, there are times I miss the past when I look through pictures, but who doesn’t?! Seems pretty normal to me,
Anyway, enjoy this GIF of me hitting. I’m going to go through the other photos and find some other nice swings and see what I can do with them! I wonder if there would be a market for this…
Today, I was thinking about the future much later on down the road. I thought to a time when I would be able to have my own office with my own graphic designers. Anyway, this inspired me to mock up an office with my logo and name to see what it would look like. I decided to do 6 different colors, which are organized next to one another in complementary pairs. Just being next to each other brings out the other’s vibrance. It can be very useful, an example being Christmas using green and red for everything related to the holiday.
I’m still looking to fill in some jobs and get some more full time designing. It’s great to dream, but that’s my goal for now!
