Designs for the
Medical Benevolence Foundation:
I really enjoyed working on this project, entitled “From Here To There”, for the Medical Benevolence Foundation – I assisted in designing a book layout with photographs taken on mission trips in Africa & Haiti, using InDesign, to be mass-produced for their donors. The trickiest part was figuring out which images worked well together out of the many that was provided for me. Like in my other design work, using rulers is essential (especially when producing work for print because of the eventual trimming by the printer/cutter). Making sure important information within the images was not lost within the gutter (very center where the spine of the book is located) was also extremely important. This project was tons of fun to help make…& in a way, giving incentive to potential donors to help people in need. 🙂 I wish I could share more of the work, but I feel it is not fair to the donors.
Designs for 18/8 Men’s Salons:
During my off-time, while I was a receptionist at a Men’s Barbershop & Salon in Texas, I was asked by the owner to create flyers, brochures & advertisements to post around the store & on the company’s social media accounts (which I was also in charge of). Simple arrangement of text, using rulers, images & boxes. The simple red & blue stripe design was custom made to give across a barbershop feel.
