The seasons of life sometimes seem to pass so slowly when you’re in them. But when you turn around and see how far you’ve already come, you realize just how fast time flies. I can’t believe my little boy is 15 months old. He’s been with us for over a year, yet I remember bringing him home from the hospital like it was yesterday. I’ve heard parents say that my whole life and now that I’m in the season of parenting, I understand.
Along with being in the parenting season of life, I’ve been blessed the past couple of months to find myself in a season of painting. However short this season may be, I am grateful for it because painting is one of my greatest passions. I truly believe that it is good for my soul. I have found time to do personal painting work as well as freelance painting work. I love the process of painting. From the anticipation of prep work to the fulfillment of cleaning up, each step is special.
Here are some examples of the painting I’ve been able to do. I did a personal piece that is a combination of acrylics and watercolors, a flowery watercolor piece that is being used for a ministry event, and a fun logo for which I combined paint and ink to get the look I wanted.
Completed Winn Dixie Project on Behance
I have my complete Winn Dixie rebrand project posted on Behance now. Check it out!
More progress on my Winn Dixie touchpoints!
Greetings! I hope everyone is surviving this Polar Vortex. I’ve been layering clothes during the day and piling blankets during the night ’cause it is COLD! I usually love snow, but not this much snow, and not below 0 temperatures.
On a happier note, I have completed my Marketing and Communications Internship! I would like to share some of the main projects that I worked on. Several tasks that I was assigned involved simply updating current websites and publications, but my favorite tasks were the ones that allowed me some creative freedom. The images below are of pieces that I got to design.
Above is an infographic that I designed to show facts about alcohol sales, particularly those in Indiana. Currently, Indiana law does not allow the Sunday sale of alcohol.
I created a membership decal and endorsed provider seal for the Indiana Restaurant and Lodging Association. I did not design the InRLA logo (the star).
I created these icons to be used in a packet containing information about Indiana alcohol sales. The packet (from the Indiana Association of Beverage Retailers) was designed to be given to Indiana legislators. I also designed the actual packet pages. Two of the pages are seen below.
I posted back in June that I was making a poster to remember my Bahamas cruise. The trip was celebrating my and husband’s five year wedding anniversary. I was inspired by the work of DKNG (http://www.dkngstudios.com/) when I was designing this poster. I learned some of their techniques by taking their class on Skillshare.
The poster has elements that of things that I experienced on the cruise, and the layout is in the shape of the Bahamas flag. I used primarily Adobe Illustrator when creating it.
Yesterday I designed this poster for students and staff to sign bidding farewell to our amazing academic adviser, Julie. Sad to see her go. I’m glad I was able to make her this poster so she can keep memories of the Art Institute forever.
My husband turned 26 today. I have been making him birthday cards since we were in 8th grade! Here is the one I designed for him this year. All it took was some cool paper (that I already had from Hobby Lobby), a standard black and white printer, and a bit of creativity to make a cool card! Work with what you’ve got 🙂
One of the responsibilities (more like FUNsibilities!) I have at my on-campus job is designing posters to go up all over school. This one is my latest design. I created vector versions of the Pyramids which is where the school is. I like how it turned out. And I REALLY like the fact the fall break two weeks away!!!
