Elvis Week Magazine Ad

Designed an ad for VH1's Elvis Week. It's meant to go into a Rolling Stone magazine. I had a hard time picking between the two variations below. I love the image on the left. It's so dynamic and Elvis. But, the right side works better typographically as well as having a better composition.

Some parameters included: 3 color print, incorporate the VH1 logo, reminescent of 1950s Elvis

DC Photos Finally Uploaded

Yeah, yeah... I know I'm super late. But I just finished editing photos from Washington, D.C. part of my December vacation to the east coast. I still have New York and snow photos to go through.

We went once to DC during the night for a night shoot (VERY cold!) and I realized that I really like doing long exposure night shots. They are sometimes hard to figure out what exposure/aperture to shoot at but I love how they look. I need to find time during spring break to do a little shooting.

CSUF Visual Arts Poster

Pretty self-explanatory. Objective was to make a poster for the Visual Arts Department at CSUF.

I was taking the idea and style of... I guess it's Russian Revolutionist era? Basically, inspired by those political posters using similar style and applying that sentiment in a more contemporary setting. The text is such a big thing to handle. I'm still not satisfied with it.

I have two weeks to improve the poster and resubmit the project so, there will be changes and actually, the version I brought into class is already slightly different.
