TBT – Black and White Designs from the Past

Here’s a little TBT – graphic design style. I was cleaning up my studio and I found some black and white pieces that I have done about 10 years ago. It definitely shows a progression from what I have done in the past to what I do right now.

Let’s take a trip down memory lane, shall we?

This piece below is one of my first corporate design jobs from a previous employer, Formosa Plastics. It’s a commemorative ad congratulating a customer’s anniversary. This was actually laid out in Quark (remember that?). It’s a simple black and white ad that was published on the customer’s program book.

These next few pieces were part of a class assignment. At that time, I went back to school to enhance my Adobe Creative Suite skills, particularly Illustrator. For this assignment, I designed a retro-style logo and business card for a fictitious movie theatre that shows classic films. Looking back, I should’ve changed the stair-like background from gradient to a solid color, but I took a risk.

Portfolio Update – Logo Concepts for Conference

The communications organization that I’m part of originally wanted to host a conference for communications professionals this fall in New Jersey, but have decided to delay the event until next year. I usually provide final designs in my portfolio, but in this particular case, I decided to post some design concepts for a logo that’s NOT going to be used. Click on the image below to view a couple of concepts that I have designed for the non-event.

I’m enjoying and celebrating the holidays with family and I end up seeing this amazing wine label and logo. Oh and the wine tastes great too!
