Jane Eyre Movie Poster
Jane Eyre Movie Poster

A hypothetical rendition of the promotional poster for the 2011 adaption, Jane Eyre. The idea for this design was derived from the quote from the book/film, "I am no bird; and no net ensnares me; I am a free human being, with an independent will; which I now exert to leave you.”

This assignment was aimed towards using illustration to capture the attention of the public guided by early propaganda posters that became successful for astringent dialogue. With no regard toward any oppositional opinion over this particular issue, I wanted this design to show the suffering that is happening with the goal to create a humbling reaction of the viewer and also playing with the typography to create a direct interaction.

Using a different color variation, I wanted the red to bring even more of a hostile feel to the design.

She Counts Everything Everywhere She Goes (Version One)

Six word story illustration assignment where the class was told to write a story consisting of only six words and then illustrating the story so that it represents the story visually. Using my strengths and also my own interest in typography, I wanted to use it as the focus for the design. With this particular version, I wanted it to resemble the process that might go through my mind as I am counting.

A poster assignment with the purposes of only using typography in an illustrative way. The concept was derived from my own personal interest of creating and drawing letters. The experimental color palette is meant to be eye catching for perspective students who may be unsure of what Graphic Design is about.

A Re-Imagined Album Cover for The Beatles (version one)
A Re-Imagined Album Cover for The Beatles (version one)

The assignment was to pick any form of music or musical artist and design/illustrate an album cover for that particular artist. I chose The Beatles because not only are they one of my favorite musical bands but their albums were always extremely creative and imaginative. I decided to experiment with color and hand lettering keeping with the visual representation from the seventies era. It was my goal to create something that would do justice of one the world's best bands.

Graphic Artist Guild: Pricing and Ethical Guidelines Handbook Cover Design (front and spine)

The Graphic Artist Guild is known for it's whimsical and ornate illustrated cover design for the mundane business related paperwork necessary for any practicing designer. The theme for this design is a play off of the "The Dog and Pony Show" statement with a "cut and paste" look and experimental hand lettering. This particular book is also known for an unusual book size so I made the book design layout wider than the usual size used.
