LIZA MINNELLI “THERE IS A TIME” ALBUM MAKEOVER
Redesigned the album artwork for Liza Minnelli’s 1966 album, “There Is A Time”, featuring photographs of Minnelli taken by Jacques Bonne. The artwork features the font Regalis Regular (for track listing and title text) and an illustration of Minnelli’s signature, which was designed by me. The goal with my design was to modernize the original artwork without taking away it’s original essence. This project was created in Illustrator and I followed all the guidelines of designing album artwork.
DANVERS HISTORICAL SOCIETY ART SHOW AD
Designed and printed a flyer for the Danvers Historical Society’s first annual art show. The text guidelines where given to me by the society, and they allowed me free range to design the ad that was consistent within their branding. I used dark grey text within the design so it would stick out against the white backdrop and to allow the logos of the sponsors to pop out as much as they needed to without over powering the whole ad. This project was created in Photoshop and InDesign, and distributed through guerilla marketing.
LOG CABIN REPUBLICANS NEWSLETTER
Designed and printed a four page mailer newsletter. This was a collaborative and teamwork oriented project. We where required to use two print colors and a maximum of six high resolution images, which where acquired from the company’s website and stock free image websites. This project was created through InDesign.
LOG CABIN REPUBLICANS E-NEWSLETTER
In the second part of this collaborative project, my partner and I designed an electronic newsletter for e-mails. We stuck with the design of the original newsletter but took it to another level by adding more sophisticated and electronic looking designs that would not be seen in a physical newsletter. This project was created through Photoshop and InDesign.
BIGELOW GREEN TEA BOX DESIGN
Designed and printed a tea box package for Bigelow Green Tea. I came up with the idea for the tea flavor, “Great Brit”, as an homage to English tea. I measured the dimensions of the original tea box, sketched two designs, sketched the entire design from scratch in Illustrator, printed it out, and put it together. The entire project was made in Illustrator.
LYNNE: THE ENGLISH ROSE (2019) POSTER
For my debut documentary film, I designed this film poster to promote it. The poster features a portrait of Lynne Frederick taken by Patrick Anson and a stock photo of a rose. The portrait was originally photographed in black and white, and I colorized and added a vignette effect around the background it in Photoshop. The rose was added over the portrait through an overlay effect. The font used for the main title was ITC Avant Garde Gothic LT Extra. The entire project was made in Photoshop.
LGBTQ MAGAZINE ARTICLE SPREAD
Designed a magazine article spread in a style for TIME® Magazine. I researched magazine articles to find appropriate fonts for article and headline text. The spread also features a stock image photo and an infographic that I designed in Illustrator. This was designed in Illustrator and InDesign.
“VALLEY OF THE DOLLS” BOOK JACKET MAKEOVER
Designed a book jacket cover for the cult classic, “Valley of the Dolls”. I researched past editions of the book and noticed the theme of alcohol and pills, and decided to use that theme but update the design with a stock image. I also used the font “Dienstag 5” because I felt that it had a modernized style of the 1960s (which is one of the time era’s of the book). This was designed in InDesign.
“THE OTHER WOMAN” DVD SLEEVE
Designed the DVD sleeve for the television drama “The Other Woman”, as part of the “Play For Today” series. To give off the theme of a psychological drama, I used the color blue to emphasize the deep melancholy themes that are touched upon in the film. To sharpen and balance off the this bold theme, I used the font “Optimus Princeps Semi Bold” for the title. The synopsis was written by me, all the photos are either stills or screencaps from the film, and I followed the guidelines for designing a DVD sleeve. This was created in Photoshop and InDesign.
SELF PORTRAIT/ABC BOOK SPREAD
Using a photograph of myself I sketched a self portrait in Illustrator with the pen tools and color swatches. My design was featured in an ABC book project for which I was assigned a letter and asked to come up with a word that has multiple meanings. This project was designed in Illustrator.
WORLD RECORD ILLUSTRATION
For this project I designed an illustration to showcase the world record of the longest single hair braid. Although my cousin, Emely, served as inspiration for the model, it was designed completely from scratch with the use of the pen tools and color swatches in Illustrator.
