In progress book cover. Digital painting.
I had a bout of inspiration and made this in about two hours. I need to finish up the back and insides of the book jacket now.
Oh hello! You've stumbled upon the blog of Joe Wright. I am a visual and web designer.
Rough mockup of my portfolio site in Illustrator. I’ll begin to code this soon. I want to integrate it with WordPress but that depends on my finding a solid theme to work off of. So far the only responsive (free) theme that has looked any good has turned out to be a nightmare to edit.
I may just have to forget about WordPress this time in the interest of getting it down on time. I’ve never really used WordPress but I am definitely interested in learning it.
On top is my first attempt. I finished it up, took a step back, and decided that I didn’t like it. So I scrapped it and came up with what you see on the bottom. Now to do the box and commercial for this.
Pixar brochure! For publication design we needed to produce a brochure about anything…so I wrote about what I know.
This is meant to be a 6 page brochure that lays out horizontally.
I had a blast making the Pizza Planet vector. Just as much fun researching this!
I visited New Orleans this week! Myself and fourteen others got to go to a couple design firms/ad agencies to see where they work and ask various questions. This is the fifth trip I have been able to do during my college career and all of them have been enlightening.
Black and White ad meant for a newspaper. (5 x 5.2 inches)
The dance, Rave to the Grave, went for a space theme this past year, so I used Gill Sans to try to have a space feel without it screaming ‘spaceships and stars’ at you.
Photo taken by me. (The color version is far better, but the project called for black and white!)
"Something extra" for my Moosylvania summer internship application.
With each project I managed to come in under budget on the time. I attribute this to just sketching first and having a plan before opening up the laptop. With this midterm, I wasn’t particularly inspired by any of the projects. I used to love doing posters, but I think I’ve reached a point where I have done so many (in the context of a classroom) that I am ready to try something else.
I am very excited to start the six pack project. I want to figure out a whole brand and implement it. I also just want to have fun with it.
