Faith Project for Young Women Personal Progress February 2, 2012

This is the pencil drawing of Jesus I drew for my Faith project for church.

Project Name: Faith

Project Goal: To complete my Personal Progress for LDS Young Women’s program

Project Narrative: So I’ve been working really hard to complete my Personal Progress for my LDS girls church group. I had finished six of the total seven of the value groups (individual worth, knowledge, choice and accountability, good works, integrity, and virtue) except for the Faith project. I had to spend at least 10 hours on each project. This one took me about 14 hours. I managed to get most of it out and done in one night. That only took around seven hours. The rest of it was trying to darken the background over the next few days. I finally gave up on trying to make it any darker and called it good. This is the finished product.

Last year for Christmas, my mom got it professionally scanned and made prints on nice paper. We bought frames and sent them to family members and close friends as Christmas presents.


Fat Boy Logo

This is the Fat Boy logo I did for one of LewisCreative’s clients.

Project Name: Fat Boy Logo

Project Goal: To create a logo for a client

Project Narrative: My mother is the founder and operator of a great graphic design company called LewisCreative. Every now and again, she gives me the opportunity to help her with a project, or have complete creative control over a project. This is one of those projects where she gave me complete control. The client, Mark, wanted a cartoon of his face for his website. This is the final product after scathing on paper, tracing it in Illustrator, and then finally perfecting it and adding color.


Green Day CD Cover

This is the final CD cover redesign for Green Day’s Dookie album that I did in Graphic Design class.

This is the front cover.

This is the back cover.

This is the inside front cover.

This is the actual CD design.


Project Name: CD Cover Redesign

Project Goal: To create a fun design that the band you were assigned might like during the era they released the album.

Project Narrative: I was assigned Green Day’s 1994 album Dookie. For this I was asked to create a cover that would fit the era it was released in. I decided that I’d use bright colors and geometric shapes. This concept turned into the designs above. 🙂

Here’s the final for a typography lesson in my Graphic Design 1 class earlier in the school year.

Project Name: Rain Typography

Project Goal: To create a typography design based on a David Carson design.

Project Narrative: The main idea of this project was to learn the basics of typography and learn what makes typography work and not work. I worked the type in Illustrator and the background in PhotoShop. The type is actually lyrics from Bruno Mars’ song It Will Rain, which is what I was listening to when I made this.
