Mailer for JH Piano

This project was for Design Applications III, not Graphic Design III.   However, it goes with the website I designed over spring break, and I really ended up liking it.  Part of the reason for this is because I am finally getting good with Adobe Illustrator.  Yes, you read that right!  Design Applications III has been … Continue reading Mailer for JH Piano

Real Problems, Real Solutions FINAL

I have created three campaign posters to be used by localized, grassroots movements and volunteers for mustang advocacy.  My posters are designed to create awareness in the average person by comparing American mustangs to other iconic endangered species.  My hope is that this will help change the perspective of the wild horse as an invasive … Continue reading Real Problems, Real Solutions FINAL
