Concept: Pocket Schedules are another product Gameday Media sells. Attached is one I did for Winnetonka’s 2017 football season. All media guide designers use a similar template, that we modify each year. I kept it simple by placing the schools logo on the front with a textured background, and using the school’s colors throughout. Inside for this pocket schedule, I chose boxes for the football games. The boxes are color coded to help fans identify home vs away games. To finish it, an ad is placed on the back.

The idea behind the poster was to get the community involved in exercising to benefit ones health. The running man is a logo of theirs. The text under the running man symbolizes a track, or pavement. I designed the poster so the viewers eye is drawn first to the top and has to gradually work down. The poster is done in the companies one color, pantone 280, blue.   Hooked-On-Books (Freelance) Hooked on books was a poster that I voluntarily did for my hometown library, Beloit, KS. The posters purpose was to encourage the public to facilitate funding for a new library. The reason I chose a bookmark for the layout was due to the fact that most bookmarks are already rectangle in shape and the logo I thought made an excellent tassel. I used watercolors for the style and texture to give it a Huckleberry-Fin appearance. The text I wanted a mixture of stylized and commercial.

Concept: This poster represents one of five pieces that depict different graphic design styles through the history of graphic design, that bear the same theme, Snow White. This poster represents the style of Art Nouveau, and stays true with the same iconic apple, but with a twist of how such a simple object can have such a powerful impact. Everything on this poster I have hand drawn and colored. I used marker and crayon, which gave it an artistic mixed media medieval weathered impression. The poster is 11″x17.”
