Happy Campers | We're In Tents

I’ve not had very many design-related posts lately. Work was running me dry so my energy was depleted by 7 p.m. every Monday through Friday. On weekends the house usually bogarts our time, which I’m alright with since I love it so much and all, but it just leaves so little time for actual creative design. Well, that is, until May 30. Today marks one month since my last day at College of Architecture. After nearly five years at OU I decided I wanted to … Read more…

It’s that time again… TBCH Golf 2013

They are available for Mac of PC (I don’t know the difference, I just know there are two files in there) and … Read more…

Rustic wedding invitations

I’ve been designing the wedding stationary for a friend whose wedding is in September. She’s having a “rustic” wedding and it’s been interesting learning to design around someone like her. She’s great and very easy to work with but she also has an array of things she likes. She’s sent me countless links to sample invitations and suites and rarely do they have features that can be combined. Some modern, some very traditional, some more stylized. Anyway, I tried to use a … Read more…

Photoshopping work peeps

Over my 21-month employment here at the university, I’ve done some amazing things when it comes to design. I’ve created crisp new logos, I’ve designed pieces with only a whisper of direction from my superiors, I’ve been recognized by others on campus for my contributions to our college communications…. but somehow the one thing that always gets the best reaction is my ability to use Photoshop… (Click the images to see them larger.) These are just for fun and thankfully everyone is … Read more…
