The local coffeehouse I work for was happy to host a booksigning for acclaimed author Lee Child. There was a ton of information I had to fit into a poster (including debating and deciding to mention the date twice) with only a week until the event to promote it. The booksigning was a huge success.
In November of 2012 I used my Photoshop and photography skills to create a Menu for a local coffeehouse I work at. Some of the images used were free stock photos used with permission, some (including the cover) were my own creation. Photoshop is great for designing, but the local coffeeshop only had Microsoft Publisher, so in the Summer of 2013 I went about transferring the whole menu to Publisher so it can be edited by employees in the future.

Each month since December I’ve been creating a music calendar for the local coffeehouse. Here’s the one for February:
Cropping and text adding, aka design work!
Here’s some work for December events. My job, as usual is to crop and add text.
Here’s a little promotion I created for the open-mic I frequent. It’s Christmas in July!
Here are a few of my favorite promotions I created for NOPL in June.
Began work at a Library Assistant in Public Relations at the Northern Onondaga Public Library. I’ve created flyers, handouts, webpages, video promotions, took photos, wrote articles, and led the web presence (website, facebook, twitter, wordpress).

After a few months working parttime as a barista, I’ve been put in charge of updating the creekside website CreeksideCoffeehouse.com, as well as making occasional flyers for events (including a monthly music calendar). Also, once a month, I host open mic night and host trivia night.
Here I’m not creating a new logo, but taking their current logo and recreating it vector format for higher resolution use.
Here’s their original logo in the fullest resolution they had available from the designer (295×200). It would show up blurry on business cards.
Here’s my recreation in Adobe Illustrator. I found the correct font, made the background transparent, and turned the drawing into separate vectors:
Photographs and design are all by me. Front cover is of my camera preview rectangle played through a computer monitor (so video feedback would occur), turned the camera, and photographed the result. The back photo is of the shadow from my office window projected on the opposite wall, with two action figures atop the windowsill (you can also see shadows of my headphones and music stand). Both images were hued blue for the album.
