Three New Design Projects I've Worked On
Here are three projects that I've worked on recently. You can see my style is clean, modern and open with generous negative space. It's my feeling that one of the most visually-engaging elements of graphic design is contrast. I like to arrange dominant, subdominant and subordinate positive and negative shapes. I push contrast by greatly increasing the difference between the largest and smallest shapes. Each downloadable pdf is between 600-700Kb.


The first item is a one-sheet flyer for Miami Dade College's School of Entertainment and Design Technology. I integrated the type with the image by mimicking the angles formed by the girl's arms.

The second item is a program book for the Entertainment Industry Incubator's Collaboration... Short Film Competition and Gala Dinner program book. It's their eighth annual event, so I emphasized the 8 on the cover. The circles also connote discs or spools of film.

The third item is a small ad for Florida International University's School of Journalism and Mass Communications. It's an interesting play on the similarities between the letter "l" and the number "1". Once again, I pushed contrast and arranged plenty of negative space.
