the postcard for a new play coming to NYC, Ching Chong Chinaman. On this one I followed the client's exact instructions, so it wasn't as much about designing the postcard as illustrating it. I can't really explain how any of this works conceptually, because I don't really know, but I tried to make it look nice. It's loony enough to work, I think.
Another sketch that went nowhere, this time for the Korean Day Parade, but it was ignored (therefore rejected) without any reaction at all. That ticked me off more than I thought it would, because working for free is okay if I get some kind of work experience out of it, but without client feedback a day's work more or less evaporated.
I tried to reference the Korean fan dance, which I thought was culturally representative without being stereotypical or trite.
these are the initial sketches I did for a new logo for Manhattan Cardiovascular. The issue here is that I couldn't think of a way to make them a logo without using a cartoon heart, but I still felt like a logo for a heart practice needed a heart in it. So these were exercises at making abstractions of hearts that don't look like the typical cartoon hearts.
These were some logos I sketched out for the Children's Athletic Training School's website redesign the firm was doing. This was one of the first projects I did there and I think I learned a bit about how to make logos people would actually use. These, while visually appealing, were too busy and conspicuous to make good logos for a child sports gym.
These were two drafts of a folded postcard I designed for One Hundred Black Men Inc. while I was interning at Fresh Concentrate. I designed them with no info about the event and very vague direction from the client, so I think I instinctively tried to make them challenging by trying not to make them racist or stereotypical. Ultimately it didn't really matter and I never worked on the final design, but it was interesting to figure out.
Wow, I really haven't been taking good care of the blog.
Inevitable Duh, Devin KKenny's show on February 5th.
Maybe I tried doing too many things here, and I think I should've put all the show info underneath everything else like the credits on a movie poster or something, instead of trying to go for pictorial consistency. Having that be legible is probably more important than demonstrating that it's about fertilization.
