I’ve been having some fun with patterns and colors. Sometimes these prints take me ages to do, I just can’t stop trying different arrangements and colors! This Boxer print is available in my Etsy shop.
Hot & fresh! New buttons I put up in the shop this morning.
There’s some new buttons up in my Etsy shop. Monster snowflakes and a tesseract. All of my buttons are handmade to order by me, toiling away in my studio!
I recently got a button maker and a high resolution color laser printer. I’ve been having a blast designing buttons! They’re available in my Etsy shop. Check back often for new designs!
Here’s another cool Skillshare class, this time taught by Aaron Draplin. I adore his design work, it’s simple but awesome. I picked up a few of the Field Notes memo books he designed and always have one kicking around with me. Check out the memo book archive – all that vintage design is scrumptious!
In this logo design class we were instructed on how to use simple shapes and type to create a family crest. I learned how to keep it simple and really work on the shapes and negative space. My crest includes a hummingbird to symbolize determination, a drafting compass which is where my roots are, a guitar because music saves my life everyday, and a stylized ocean wave because I live by the ocean and never want to leave. The Latin reads: This too shall pass.
I took the lessons I learned and used them to create this Chihuahua crest. I love the simplicity and colors and am discovering that less is sometimes more.
I had some fun today and submitted a design concept for a horror movie poster over on 99Designs. I know a lot of designers hate spec work, but I see it as good practice! As an added bonus I might actually have one of my designs get chosen and make a few bucks.
For the movie poster I created the word ‘blood’ and the drips with India ink. Then I scanned them in and created vectors which I used in layers on the poster. I wanted a simple text based design and took my inspiration from Saul Bass.
Speaking of horror movies and Saul Bass, The title sequence for Psycho is my favorite!
