I'm currently developing a logo for Red Klay Inc. and Phoenix ENT LLC, a computer consulting company and artist development company. These are just some of the first ideas I came up with. Although I anticipated going through at least two more drafts, Red Klay Inc. were happy with the last two and Phoenix ENT prefer the phoenix second from the bottom.

I prefer the one on the bottom left and middle right. I'm not sure how I will complete the package with the business card, and envelope design to make them all compliment each other, but I will discover a solution I'm sure. :) Especially with the help or input from any of you reading this. I will re-edit this post with the business card and envelope design as I create them :D.

Well they definitely didn't approve of me tweaking the SGA logo so I had to rearrange somthings, lol along with adding a new character to the story to further emphasize GA States diversity... I do think the fourth person adds more balance, but I do miss having the torch below the IS.. Unfortunately its the designers decision on the final design. o_O
Here are the two banners I was asked to create in their final stages. The photo on the Tighter Grip banner features the actual director of marketing for Tighter Grip with an cool effect I created around him. I am still not completely satisfied with the logo, but maybe I should let it go since they are satisfied with it. The SGA Banner called for a more conservative, friendly look. I attempted to express GSU's diversity with photos of random students, and the multi-colored silhouettes. I had to tweak the SGA border to make it work with the banner. :)

These are incomplete logo designs for two organizations on campus, the Social Justice Project and Tighter Grip. I have more exploring to do with the Social Justice logo, but I like where both of those are going. Yes, the 2nd one intentionally resembles the batman symbol :) The Tighter Grip logo is one I already created (on the right), but I seriously dislike it and want to remodel it. Unfortunately the president of the club is not feeling where my design on left is going. I will continue to push it though.
We are getting closer to the end of this portion of the project and I am still torn between which logo style I like best for Visicom. As far as for each division I like the 2nd and 3rd row. For the overall I agree with my professor, that the orbs do not need the icons, Im not sure if it should say The Visicom Network or Visicom with the divisions underneath.

I've designed many flyers for parties, and some I look back and hate (I didn't post those monstrosities lol), but I do like these two, especially the one on the right because I didn't use my beloved font "Birth of a Hero," which was becoming a deadly addiction.
The flyer on the left, "Little Black Dress," was one of my first flyers ever. It secured my job as a Lavish Productions Graphic Designer for all their parties and anything dealing with design. When I reflect on other flyers I created not all of them were a hit to me like the first. Fortunately Lavish Productions appreciated them all (I also created their logo) :)
I'm afraid I just couldn't resist. I held off as long as I could... but I had to post some of my outside work/photography. I will be gentle and posts them in spurts, starting with PHOTOGRAPHY :) Now I am completely new too this field, although I have always had a GREAT amount of admiration and interest in it. I do plan to master it eventually, and although these are by no means masterpieces, I am excited about our start. O.. and when I say "our" I am referring to me and my business partner Aaron Jones, we are the creators of R.A.D. Raw Aesthetic Designs L.L.C... We do flyers, T-Shirt designs, Tattoo designs, and last but not least.. Photography :/ If you are a photographer, or currently in a photography class feel FREE to leave pointers. I am still struggling to perfect lighting, and getting my pictures "nose hair" clear.
These are works from Fall 2008 Intro Graphic Design. I had a lot of fun with these projects, but I have my work cut out for me for portfolio review. For the Verizon Ad Campaign I plan to go back and play with the typography some more, and also get more creative with the large green one. I have to completely rethink my illustrative logo (which I did not even post) and I plan to make the paragraphs on the back of Lord of the Flies different colors (nothing extreme). If you have suggestions please feel free to express them.
