Never Poorer, Never Happier

I started a new job at a craft store. It's minimum wage, but at the same time I've never been happier. This is the most fulfilling job I've ever had in my life! I stock shelves, and help people buy craft items. I get to use my general knowledge of crafting along side my organizational … Continue reading Never Poorer, Never Happier

More Changes, New Opportunities

It's been a while since I last wrote. Life got in the way again, as usual. I have a new job and the good news is that it has given me even more marketable skills. And access to all the art supplies I want. That's all I'm saying about the job and the company here. … Continue reading More Changes, New Opportunities

Begging For Cream Logo

Here's my latest logo design. The clients initially described the project as a typography-based logo. What they ultimately wanted was much different. The logo is for a line of ice cream that's erotically themed. "Ice Cream Company" is based on the font used for the Fifty Shades Of Grey. Although I initially was not told … Continue reading Begging For Cream Logo

Back to the Proposal Grind

I know I should be treating freelancing as a second job, working 10-20hrs per week to make ends meet. But I admit I forget about that a lot. It's time once again to make that better. My husband recently fell near his work and has been unable to work regular hours for the past month. … Continue reading Back to the Proposal Grind

Getting words out

I want to talk about something near and dear to me: animation. I grew up with animation filling my house. I went to see Ferdinand on New Year's Day. I loved it. It was adorable and told a solid story. Polar Express has nothing on Ferdinand. Blue Sky Studios is better known as "that studio … Continue reading Getting words out

Second Times the Charm

So my first day back on the job kinda sucked. But the second day turned out fantastic. Slowly catching up! Savannah was fantastic, by the way. We took two tours with Old Savannah Tours. Both the day and night tours were well worth the money. The night tour was a "Ghost Tour". Basically it followed … Continue reading Second Times the Charm

Client Clarity

I’m trying to get back into design contests as practice for my skills. Sometimes, several in the last few weeks, I think clients simply don’t know what they want enough to really ask for a design they will like. One contest holder asked for a refund. Two others never picked a winner. It’s not like … Continue reading Client Clarity

Medical AI in Communication

Here it is. This is my most recent creation in iterations. I was ranked only 2/5 stars for each design. I tried, and that’s good practice anyway. Why do you think none of them did well in the contest? How could I improve my design thinking? (shown in order of submission, and based on some … Continue reading Medical AI in Communication
