Drum roll please.....
I am about to show you the first set of handmade cards. This was my first graphic design 5 project, and I really wanted to create something that was me.
As a designer, I spend most of my time creating things for other people. I have to follow their direction and their vision and work my own style into their ideal design. This is challenging for some people in my class, but I think I have come close to mastering it.
For this project, I had tons of creative freedom. I designed the patterns, I carved the patterns into a linoleum block, I picked the size of the cards, the colors, the inside, the messaging, and the logo and packaging. And I think that is what most excites me about the final product. As soon as I was finished, there was no doubt in my mind that it was a portfolio piece. I haven't gotten any feedback from my professor yet, but I am anticipating good things since she was excited about it during the process.
So without further ado...
Look for the other two reveals in the next couple days.
