New Graphic Design Project

I am someone who always seems to be creating and working on one project or another; I always try to keep busy and improve upon my skills. I thought it would be fun to challenge myself and try to design something new. I’ve been working on new greeting card and print ideas lately, but I thought it would be nice to get a change of pace. As I have moved recently, I thought it was time for me to update my resume in a creative way.  I had two conditions to meet as part of my challenge:

1: To showcase my design skills along with my employment history in one document? I already have a “standard” resume with all the information needed, How hard could it be?

2: Could I create this project using more than one software, perhaps one that I feel I should use more frequently?

The results:

Designed Resume
This is what I came up with: an cool updated resume! 

I created this project using Adobe Photoshop, Indesign, and Illustrator. The assorted clip art is sourced from vintage royalty-free printed materials. I’ve blurred out some personal information, but you can see that (even without that information) the piece is clear, concise, and informative. I job well done, if I do say so myself!

Retro Rocket Postcards

Retro Rocket Postcards

I am excited to share my newest project with you: Retro Rocket Postcards! These fun postcards feature a Dashing Dog and Curious Cat as astronauts in their own Space Ships!

Retro Rockets

These postcards all measure 4 x 6 inches and they are printed on AMAZING Cougar Paper which gives the postcards both an amazing weight and color.

They even have a space on the back for writing the recipient’s address and a handy icon so you know where your postage goes; it’s 33 cents for a card within the USA, $1.10 for anywhere else. These postcards are perfect for sending little letters to people all around the world!

NOW available as a 6-pack in my Etsy shop!
