Roller Derby Event
This was created using Illustrator and Photoshop. The background is actually a close up photo of an orange construction cone that I manipulated and changed the color to fit this poster.
The Detroit Roller Derby Girls are very color oriented, and wanted something that fit their company image.
Created in CMYK for print.
Let's Save Michigan
This was created using Illustrator. The lake is a photo of Lake Superior that was image traced to create the the effect.
The poster was used to start the dialogue about the Great Lakes and water conservation.
Created in CMYK for print, and RGB for web.
DDoP Event Posters
These were created using InDesign and Photoshop for an annual percussion clinic. They were looking to ad graphics to their approach and wanted something that fit their style. They gave me samples similar to what they wanted, and I blended some options together to get this final version.
Created in InDesign in CMYK for print.
Dragon Wagon Tour
These two were created using Photoshop. Being one of my earlier, self-taught posters, I didn't know about the vector vs rastor images for Photoshop or Illustrator.
They were going on tour in 2012 and needed updated posters that would grab the attention, yet have a blank space for each venue to write their information in.
A lot of the early work I received was from friends in bands who wanted promotional posters made.
These are examples of postcards, magazine ads, and brochures.
