New Mindsets Creation

Hello everyone, 

Hope everyone is having a great week. 

I have created some new designs for "New Mindset", like a business card, 
cover letter, and my story board. My colours work very well with my overall design. 

For my motion graphic for New Mindset is a gem.  
My storyboard shows how the website and graphic will play out. When you visit the website, the gem will appear as a whole gem, when you click on the gem with your mouse, another screen will appear with the gem pieces everywhere and a empty basket. If you click on the basket, the gems will automatically go inside the basket, if you click on the basket again it will show you the gems back together but this time the gems show many different options  and courses to build the program you want. Once you have clicked on the courses thats right for you, the courses will build to one big sold gem, which will again show you what you have chosen.

Word of the week " Swamp"

Hello everyone,

When I seen the word of the week , first thing that came to mind was an alligator.
Information about a Alligator ,

Habitat:The Alligator lives in the swamps of Australia, South America, Africa, and the southern part of North America.
Population:Alligators are not endangered.
Eating habits:The Alligator eats mostly fish, turtles, and snails.
Size &weight:The  Alligator can weigh up to 1,000 pounds and can grow up to 12 feet long.
Life span:Alligators can live up to 30 or more years old.

I wanted to create a kids postcard about the world of the week " Swamp". Had a lot of fun trying to draw my alligator and create it in illustrator.
I created everything on the postcard from the moon to the background, also I played around with my blending mode, and wanted that feel of a dark late night in a swamp with your favourite creatures. 

Happy Easter , Thanks for stopping by :) cheers !!

"Field Trip Downtown Hamilton "

Hello everyone,

On March 27th /2012,

A beautiful afternoon for a field trip to downtown hamilton.

The first place we went to was to meet a couple of graphic designers, named
 Jeremy Freiburger and Steph Seagram , we learned a lot from being there, there website is: 

The second place we went to was called " Mixed Media , a wonderful place to get all your graphic or arts needs, from paints to books, to art work on the wall , it was a very warm and comfortable environment.

A group of us went further into downtown James st, went into stores such as art stores, and art galleries, and a shop that sells books and records. We asked questions like " How business was for them? ," How long they have been doing the career they choose", "How they got started".

We went into a gallery and spoke with a man named " David Brace", a very warm and welcoming person to meet with. He is the owner of the store front called" B Contemporary", fine Art and Custom Picture Framing.

We were glad that he took the time to answer all our questions. We asked him how he got into the business of art and he replied"that it was a natural step for him, ever since 1990 he has been working with art, he worked in a lot of galleries , he started at the age of 12.
It started to pursue when he was 14 -15 in high school, taking art classes, etc.

We asked him why he choose to have his business in hamilton, he relied with cause its were he grow up here in hamilton, it was the right place at the right time when he started the business.

Brace says the street is changing a lot these days. The most time hes usually busy is on fridays and weekends, the way he chooses  the art work that goes up, well he has artists that have long term relationships with him that go back 20 years. Most of those art works go on display as well as new artistis wanting to show there art to the world.

People will email him a lot wanting to show case there art work, if he likes the person, and hits it off then they come look at the studio and book shows and dates. Now with everything changing in a new way, he said that photoshop is used a lot these days.

On a average painting depend on the artist , can average from 3000$, to 4500$.

The Last place we went to was called " Books & Beats. 
If your looking for New and used books and Vinyl Records, Here is the place to go. The owner was great help to us answering questions and letting us walk around his store. Before I left I had to buy a book from there, It was documentary stories about Marilyn Monroe. 

Hope you all enjoyed your visit on my blog , come back again soon!!!

Word of week " Shades"

Hello everyone,

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week, This weeks word is "Shades", the first thing that came to mind was sunglasses. Hopefully summer will come sooner and we wont have anymore of this on and off weather.

Sunglasses are important to everyone , we use them outside when its sunny of course :) , on the beach, on our way to work or school. There are many kinds of sunglasses you can buy these days, ones for females and ones for males.

I have been inspired by a photograph that helped me create my design, it was Illustrated by Milton Glaser in 1971.

I had taken a lot of shots , this one was my favourite the way the angle of all the building went together. Above is the original Image, that I have taken in toronto downtown.
My original image that I have edited in photoshop, I put a threshold on it to make it a darker effect. Also I have created three sunglasses in illustrator to go with my design.

My final design I have created on a post card. Its very fun and eye catching.
 I am very happy with what I have designed.

Thanks everyone for stoping by and checking out my site, Check back very soon I will be posting a lot more stuff.
Have a wonderful Weekend Happy Easter!!!!
