Digital Self Portrait- This project was to use a self portrait and use shapes in order to portray my personality. I chose to use a photo that was taken at an event where I felt the most like myself, and changed the color scale to reflect how I view my personality.
This was a series of 4 postage stamps to represent a "Celebration of Cultural Diversity in America." The project was also to select four individual aspects of the culture. I chose Irish American and included Celtic knotwork, folklore, architecture, and music.
Movie Teaser Poster, Spring 2020/Summer 2020- This project was to design a movie teaser poster for a film that was not released yet. I chose to represent the movie Morbius. I designed the initial poster with a focus of the bat in the negative space, utilizing mostly graphic art methods. I decided to redesign it in the summer utilizing an ink wash. The backgrounds in both images are designed from the same ink washes.
For my Graphic Design Shirt, I wanted to incorporate the tools of the trade as much as possible. I also wanted to invoke a feeling of excitement into the shirt, while also portraying the technical aspects. For the overall feeling I felt that color would contribute heavily to a celebratory feeling. I also was originally thinking of using a paintbrush around the border, but I decided that it would most likely take away from the hierarchy how I was planning on incorporating it.
