2 months to go

So its almost the end of October and that means that there is only two months left until I am officially a Champlain College graduate. The next two months will probably be the busiest two months I’ve had yet at school. In my future are a lot of final design touches to my portfolio, thesis project finalization, printing two blurb books, and working on some freelance work along the way.

I am pretty excited to see everything slowly come together. For the past three weeks I have been trying to compile all of my past projects and work and finalize their designs to add into my working portfolio. This is going to be a complete redesign from last years portfolio that I designed and bound myself in my digital publication class. I hope to be able to showcase some of my school projects, freelance work, and photography in a clean organized layout.

Above are just a couple of screen shots of the layout that I am working with for my portfolio.

My Champlain Capstone class is proving to be one of the largest projects that I have done here at school. Writing and designing a 20 page book is quite time consuming but I am happy with how it is turning out. So far I have finished two of the four sections. I hope to be able to have the book edited and printed by the first week in December.

Above are a couple of the spreads from my capstone project titled “Perfection”

And finally I thought I would put up some of my freelance work that I have been doing for a client that is starting up a her own business in therapy and yoga.

The loving river logo is meant to illustrate the tag line “release into flow”. I thought that using a hand rendered type as well as the half swirl would fit in with that approach. I hope to be able to add some more texture to the logo mark itself. Overall I am happy with the direction that this project is going and I think it will provide some unique pieces that will benefit my portfolio. Let me know what you think.

As for right now that is about all I have design wise that I can update with. I hope to be able to update again soon with some finalized projects and photos as well.
