I was called about a possible job and was asked If I would design an 11 X 17 poster to show my layout skills for a contract job. This is what I came up with. They provided me with all the images and a page of copy and I chose what was most needed.
I got the job but lost it when the client refused to sign the contract. I have learned to always have a contract when doing design work and to get some kind of a deposit.
Pen and Ink Drawing Restoration
Pen and Ink restoration for a client. This pen and ink drawing was originally done on rice paper then mounted using rubber cement which overtime leaked through the rice paper and damaged the drawing. The artist was 80 years old and the family wished to have it restored before she died so that everyone in the family could have a copy of it.
I was hired to restore the original work by digitizing and removing the damage so that each member of the family could have a copy of their great aunts drawing.
This project took about 29 hr to complete and when I was finished I was very pleased with my work and so was my client.
Book Cover Design For The SCL by Stephen Miller
I was hired to design a book cover and create chapter heading Illustrations for a book called The Santa Claus League By Stephen Miller.
The image in the background was to be a watercolor painting that needed to be digitized and then he wanted me to come up with a font that was close to a font that his friend had come up with.
So I found a font that was as close as possible (with some adjustments) to the example of the rough sketch that I was provided. I then created a Logo for him using the font and made it look like stained glass.
For the Stained glass window Illustration, I took the chapter heading that I designed and created the illustration that’s talked about inside the book and was placed in the back of the book.
Design with Marketing in Mind
My Oil Business
Below you will see examples of some of the work that I did while working with My Oil Business through a program called Business partnerships with Desert Industries sponsored by the LDS church.
My duties included helping My Oil Business marketing department prepare for the do – Terra convention of 2014 while there I met Anna Empey. I assisted by designing marketing materials such as designing a poster for street A-frame signs, banners design, labels design, and helped with there catalog typesetting as well as designing other marketing materials.
