V-Day Gift

For Valentine's day this year, I wanted to relish in the good times my boyfriend and I spend together. The best moments usually occur during various random adventures, so I thought, "what better way to celebrate spontaneity than with a variety pack of beer?" I designed each bottle differently, and since Jeff loves trying new kinds of beer and values good design, he absolutely LOVED his gift.

::: Sore Loser —Typeface :::

Another Typeface that I hope to finish someday...
Thought I'd show a bit of the process

basic letter structure made with lines
adding serifs...
Outlined and expanded, another stroke added and expanded again. Centers taken out of letters for Bold version.

A Few Old Projects...

I realized I never posted my work that I did over winter break for University Recreation. So here it is...
Stout Adventures Trips & Clinics Posters, Stout Adventurer Cover and Back, Dog Sledding Trip Poster,  and Step-It-Stout 2010 Crusin' the Coast Logo, Poster, & Registration Form

My Birthday Wish-list

I know, I know, my birthday isn't for another month, but I just came across a few things that I would love love love to have!

Okay, I know these are all crazy expensive and unrealistic, but a girl can dream, can't she? :o)

Warheads: Extreme Sour Face

For my first Advertising Photography project I plan to do a campaign for Warheads Extreme Sour Candy.  This weekend I experimented with lighting in the studio and I thought I'd share the results.  I pulled inspiration for lighting and post processing from photographers Jill Greenberg and Dave Hill in attempt to get a hyper-realistic almost illustrated look.  I only had a half hour in the studio, so next time I hope to get the lighting just perfect to better achieve the effect I want. I also need to come up with better copy text. I'm super excited for the next shoot. I plan to bring eyedrops and Extreme Warheads for my models to get some awesome eye-watering sour faces. Stay tuned for the final product!

Social Sunday

Social Sunday is a gathering for UW-Stout AIGA Student group members. The purpose of the get-together is to hang out with other student designers in a fun, social setting while sharing ideas and inspiration. This month's Social Sunday is going to be held at the Raw Deal on February 7th at 1 pm.  (The Raw Deal has deeee-licious juices, smoothies, and coffee, I must add!)
So come on by for some good food, good laughs, and good insight!
I was asked to design the poster for this event, and I'm pretty excited about the typeface I came up with. Maybe I'll attempt to make the entire alphabet someday...
