Design Meets Craft

After having my Cricut a couple of weeks, I've happily discovered that it's the precise intersection between designing and making. I have an idea, I design it in Illustrator, and I test it with my Cricut. That workflow is very satisfying because I have the confidence that my files will work beautifully for everyone who … Continue reading Design Meets Craft

My Latest Creations

Today, I wanted to show off some of my latest work. Last week I revealed that I'd acquired a Cricut. Here are the images I currently have for sale that I will be testing soon: I tested out some basic cardstock projects. Here's the pumpkin I made: I got some Super 77, Outdoor ModPodge glue/sealer, … Continue reading My Latest Creations

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

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
