When it comes to creating complex digital illustrations or logos that can be easily manipulated while still maintaining crispness and clarity, Adobe Illustrator is the industry standard for vector imaging. The skills I've gained are highlighted in bold type in this section of the portfolio. I will always use Adobe Illustrator when creating logos and digital illustrations.
Balloon Festival Poster - This project required that I create a balloon poster (fictional) for the Temecula Hot Air Balloon Festival in my Advanced Vector Illustration Class.
Client/ Designer Package - I gained the skills to iwork with a "client" (a student of the class, Hayley Peterson), listenng to her, gatherering research on her idea, creating thumbnails from her concept and presenting electronic proofs.
Heartsmart Cereal Package - I designed this packaging for a (fictional) cereal targeted at the health-conscious consumer in my Advanced Vector Illustration class.
2009 Season XC Logo Design Concept - Branching out and beginning my career as a graphics artist, I created this logo design in High School for my Cross Country Team. This design was screen-printed, worn, and cherished by the coach and team members.
2010 Girls Bowling Sweatshirt Logo Design Concept - Another opportunity rose to branch out during high school where myy Cross Country coach was so pleased with the 2009 XC logo design, he asked that I create the 2010 Girls Bowling sweatshirt design too. He was again pleased with my work.
Seniors 2010 Logo Design Concpet - I designed this logo for all seniors to wear in three colors (navy blue, white, and gray). I wanted something cool for us to have instead of the generic shirt that came with our graduation package.
Tacoma Rescue Mission T-shirt Logos - These are fictional logos I created for people who serve in the Tacoma Rescue Mission
CPTC Aviation Department Logo - Designed for the Aviation Department at CPTC. "Holy Wow! I showed it to one of the teachers and there is talk of making this the new AMT official patch for students. Thank you very much." Benjamin Watson, email@example.com | April 20, 2011
CPTC Service Learning Lapel Pin Designs - In the Summer of 2011, I was recommended by my instructors at Clover Park Technical College (John Moyer and Darryl Owens) to design lapel pins for the up and coming Service Learning Program. This is the first proof of the designs that I presented.
