My style has changed over the years, when it comes to graphic design. Here you will find a variety of styles from the minimalist to the more complex. I have also created all images/graphics on my blog and this website (unless otherwise stated).
I have spent the last 12 years creating graphics and working with web design. What you’ll find here is a culmination of the most recent years’ content.
These two images are small but they are badges used for the official Xbox community forums at http://forums.xbox.com. The original unicorn badge (left) was all white with a grey mane. I changed this to have green and gold colors as reflected across the Xbox Community Support platforms. Likewise, with the Ambassadors Alpha badge (right), the original was all white and 30×17 rather than the typical ~17×17 size. Because of its width, it was preventing users from being able to have the maximum of 6 badges on their profiles. I reduced the size to 20×17 and gave the laurels the Xbox green and the “A” a golden color.
Below are my examples of design for web presence–logos, buttons, headers, email signatures, etc. The designs were made for personal use, but show my ability to design for branding and professional use in various styles:
I’ve been really into designing Snapchat geofilters. Not only is a fun experience and experiment with transparency and how designs can work with several backdrops, but seeing people on Snapchat using them is probably the coolest feeling. (And being able to use them myself.)
The following were rejections. I’ve included a slideshow of them below because I think it’s good to show the variety in my design, and show others that even sometimes your favorite designs won’t always make it…
The following are graphics that were not commissioned, but they were made for personal/recreational use beyond branding. Most of them are photo manipulations, but some extend beyond just basic photo manipulations. They vary between role-playing/forum post templates, forums signatures and avatars, 8tracks.com playlist covers, wallpapers and online event flyers–you may find some headers for Tumblr accounts, etc., that I do own that I do not consider a professional brand so they are included below instead:
