I have accomplished a variety of work in graphic design, as shown from examples pulled from experiences in my classroom, employment, and extracurricular activities.
graphic design course final
Before taking graphic design at Bridgewater College, I had yet to encounter it; however, I had a great affinity for it. Below is my final I created for the course. Our prompt was to create a mock pamphlet about the event happening at a real festival or conference. I chose to create one about an interfaith conference.
My idea was to use refracting light to show how different pathways to nonviolence can be realized in different religions. I used the motif of the refraction of light and triangles to represent prisms through which the light passes. This created a cohesive structure throughout my entire piece, where I used a three-column structure to organize the amount of information needed to go into the pamphlet. For the images I found on Creative Commons, I attempted to keep them all similar through the desaturation of the colors. My color choice was primarily analogous, staying in the blue to purple range with an off-white, cream color to create the effect of the glowing light paths when needed.
digital scholarship gurus
As a part of the team of Digital Scholarship Gurus, I helped to create a variety of graphics. The ones I chose to include here are a part of my best. In the 2019 spring semester, the Guru program decided to begin hosting workshops for Bridgewater faculty and students to attend to learn skills like photography and graphic design in the most basic format. For the photography workshop, I created a poster, located on the left, and a take-home brochure, located on the right. I wanted each to have as much information as possible in a digestible form while also showcasing that the Digital Scholarship Guru program was hosting the event. The muted, saturated blue was to catch people’s attention but not overwhelming.
Below are icons I created for professors to use on Canvas, the learning management system to which Bridgewater College was moving. I created two series, and I have included part of my “orange series” below. Using the limited Canva.com icons, I attempted to create a cohesive line of icons that convey the destination of where the it would lead quickly and effectively.
