A Designer’s Life

In my design life I have a several projects that have been keeping me busy. I’d thought I’d list a few.

Design Projects:

1. Children’s Retail Store – Done


Notes: I created the background. The logo I did not design, but used Fireworks to change the colors to match the top striped photo, added teal on the top strip to match the logo teal color. The buttons change colors. They also have a beige outer rim which this photo doesn’t show. I usually have a hard rule “no retail”. It’s normally a nightmare, but in this case I was just the designer and I didn’t have to work directly with the client. (a first).
2. Template Design for Habitat of Humanity that local offices can just update as needed. – – Done

3. Georgia Bulldog local fan club site – in progress. I am a Gator fan, and it is so hard to spend hours looking at black, red and that darn Uga! grrrr


Notes:  Very rough draft, grey background, the red stripe has a shadow  effect to give dimension on the page. Far right photo will rotate.  Buttons are being programmed.

4. I’m switching servers so Im about to be hip deep in creating email accounts and moving my online world to a new location. Im hoping its worth it in the end.

I came across this post called “8 way to drive your graphic designer crazy” and it is just so funny.
