The producer of the award-winning film All My Tomorrows requested a promo poster design for the approaching Cannes Film Festival. After previewing the film and obtaining stills from his photographer, I developed the idea of using horizontal format to create the space between the two characters that can be felt throughout the film. All My Tomorrows is a love story that quickly develops between an unlikely couple, as they engage in an emotional roller coaster of misunderstandings and tense moments throughout their short time together. The poster design was used for multiple film festivals and for various promotional pieces.
San Luis Obispo's Old Mission School (OMS) requested a fun screen print design that the kids could wear for spirit days instead of their uniform shirts. They provided the verbage, and the color scheme was to be the OMS colors of blue and gold. After various concepts, the design on the left was chosen, fulfilling a classical theme with a traditional serif and elegent script typeface, and the one on the right, for a more contemporary, collegiate appeal.
Cal Poly's Agribusiness Management department requested a screen print design for their annual AG Showcase shirts. The theme was to be "20 years and still growing." The final concept conveys an earthy theme with plants maturing. A distressed typeface paired with a brown color communicate the appearance of dirt, and three green seedlings sprout and grow from brown "dirt" letters. The tag line pulls the green from the plants, and a streak of brown "dirt" serves as a rule, separating the logo from the date and location.
This poster design was an idea proposal for the Cal Poly Open House committee. The theme was "All that glitters, green and gold." The Cal Poly "musty" was incorporated to maintain the Cal Poly brand, and a trail of stars behind the galloping musty reflects the glittering of green and gold. The words "green" and "gold" were created in Illustrator using gradient fills and strokes and a few star sparkles were added for extra luminosity.
Cal Poly Athletics requested a screen print design for 2,000 shirts for the spirit group Mustang Maniacs to hand out at home games. The requirements were: it must have the Cal Poly Athletics logo, and "We are the Mustangs" somewhere prominent. These shirts are worn by cheering fans and thrown out at games. To capture the energy of a roaring crowd, a powerful and electric concept was needed; lightening was the perfect focus!
Ranchita Canyon Winery needed new artwork for apparel to be sold in their tasting room. They requested a trendy design which incorporated their signature windmill. The goal was to create a classic design with a contemporary angle. This was achieved with a symmetrical design, and combination of a distressed modern typeface and a decorative script. The windmill shape surrounded by fancy flourishes, and a traditional ribbon with text again turns classic into trendy with a bit of distress. The design was printed on soft, faded apparel, reinforcing the popular worn look.
