National Author Promotion

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.

Coffeehouse Menu

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.

View the full menuĀ (in pdf form) or view page 4:

Photo and M logo used with permission. I love designing movie posters. I created the logo used in the Movie series, as well as the cropping, the text adding, and the moving things around to look good. :-)

April 2013 Library promotions

Photo is in the public domain. This promotion is for a slideshow sign. I'm disappointed to add text over the crisp old photo of downtown Syracuse. In my flyer I made I'm allowed more room to feature both the text and the image.

Photo and clip art used with permission. Usually not a fan of clip art, but I had an idea of an atomic soccer ball. I used a soccer ball image, photoshopped to look like clip-art, and added an actual clip-art of a nucleus. Tada.

Photo and logo used with permission. I really like this, other than the logo in the grass... couldn't decide how to deal with it, so I just glowed it to the max.

Photo used with permission. Had to move the two subjects apart to fit the text in, they had to angle them to keep the eye-line correct.

Photo and font used with permission. Actually had to photoshop it: hued it blue, cropped, and changed the dial from slightly cold to awfully chilly.

Image used with permission... movie posters are always the easiest images to transfer into a nice flyer. Those Hollywood types know what they're doing.

Why did I decide to spend time having the text of each herb be overlayed with an image of said herb? It’s called passion, people! šŸ™‚ Image used with permission.

NOPL

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).

Doulas of CNY Logo Fix

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.

DulasLogo-old

Here’s my recreation in Adobe Illustrator. I found the correct font, made theĀ backgroundĀ transparent, and turned the drawing intoĀ separateĀ vectors:

Front cover.

Back cover.

Photographs and designĀ 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.

PDF of the printable coverĀ — Just print, cut-out, fold and tape together, with the lower flap (with title) folded with no tape to open and close with ease.
