Another Deadly Design for Immortality Entertainment

0
Another one of my Deadly Designs. I was commissioned by Immortality Entertainment for their upcoming Mardi Gras Party. They wanted the name of their event, the date, Mardi Gras colors and to keep to their gothic vibe. I used my artistic eye and what I have been learning in my Desktop Publishing courses to come up with this. I am really happy with how it turned out and glad that the customer is as well!
Stay Spooky!

Living Dead School Girl is Half Way There!

I am officially 50% done so far with my Desktop Publishing and Design program. I got a little behind while being treated at Mayo Clinic and adjusting medication and health wise but I am back on track. I was getting a little bummed that I was ahead of my studies and then fell behind a little but I also know that my health comes first and it is out of my control. All I can do is stay focused when I am feeling good and keep trucking along. It was great to get an email from my school though telling me Congrats after completing my exam last night that I was officially 50% done with my program. I only have a few more courses to go and then I will start doing the actual courses that will teach me Adobe Indesign! I am very excited about this portion of the program and getting to learn the software used in the industry.

Stay Spooky and Smart!

Immortality Entertainment Venue Ad Design

0
This is a new venue search ad I designed for Immortality Entertainment. They are an up and coming gothic/vamp inspired event planning and promotional company in the Chicagoland area. They wanted to work with me as they felt my style of art was fitting to their vision. This ad will be used on their social media sites to help them connect with a venue for their future events.
 
More info for venues that might be interested:
They are currently looking for a venue willing to work a deal with them to hold all of their gothic and vamp inspired events. Would be great publicity for the venue! If you or someone you know in the Chicagoland area has the perfect venue for their vampy visions  please contact them directly at immortals42@gmail.com.
 
Stay Spooky!

Living Dead School Girl Update #2

0
Well from my previous posts you all know I am enrolled in a Desktop Publishing and Design Program. So far I am still trucking along and still ahead of the game. I have finished 6 lessons and exams. I have already learned alot about the publishing process and the big picture about the elements of design and what big industries and customers are looking for. As you can see I am already starting to take what I learn and use it here online with my Blogger as well as revamping and creating a whole new professional website! Right now in my Instructional Set I am learning about Planning and Designing documents. It is teaching me how to plan a design from start to finish using industry, printing and structural standards. I have been doing Desktop Publishing and Design on my own for many years but I am so glad I am taking these courses. I am getting a better understanding of the overall picture of what I need to move forward with my career goals and what employers and customers are really looking for. It’s not just about taking a picture you like and throwing some font on it. It’s about particular fonts that are used for specific reasons, margins, specific layouts, white space etc. I have learned that colors alone can give a person an emotional reaction to your end product and how certain ones should and should not be used. There are so many elements behind Desktop Publishing and Design that makes it even more intriguing to me now!
 
Stay Spooky and Smart!
