as though he was reaching through it.With black paint and a 100% opacity, softedged brush, I painted away the hard image edges.

Adobe Illustrator

Objectives:
Create an appealing logo for a business or company.

Process:

I used Illustrator to create this logo. I feel that the typography made all the difference in this project. I also used the pen tool to create the piece inside of the
light and to form the shape of the actual lightbulb.

Brochure
Description:

Using Adobe Indesign, I created a simple appealing brochure that both sends
a message and basically tells you what the event is about the minute that you
open the cover.

Program(s)/Tools:
Adobe InDesign

Objectives:

Inform my audience about each candidate as if they were at the debate.

I created my brochure in Indesign. It was much eaiser than expected. The biggest problem I had was figuring out how to wrap the text and not take away
from the brochure.

I wanted this particular piece to be easy on the eyes, and appeal to all people.

took other colors form the original photo to make the red background.

Conference
Do you want to have the competitive edge in
business?

Create a Flier for an event.

Come learn how at Vouant Communication’s
annual Graduate Leadership Conference.

Process:

Vouant Communications is devoted to
helping tomorrow’s leaders gain essential
leadership skills in the workplace. During this
dynamic three-day seminar,
attendees will meet with top executives
of Vouant Communications to discuss
breakthrough leadership techniques, while
cultivating attributes of leadership
that will market to any employer.

I used InDesign to create this flier. I was looking for something repetitive to use
so I went with boxes which is why they appear in multiple places multiple times
on the flier. I emphasized graduate so that it stuck out from the rest of the flier
to catch the attention of the audience. I was given the image, logo and content
for this flier.

Conference is available to graduating seniors.
Space is limited.
October 21
8a.m - 5p.m.
Lincoln Convention Center
