CD Cover: Street Green

Smeezaleen: Street Green

I completed this cover a couple months ago now, it is the second cover I've done for Smeezaleen.  Smeez wanted it to look like a $100 bill, but with a modern feel.  The challenges include working within a square format and getting the images to blend with the style of the bill.  I think it turned out great and my client was happy...that's what matters!

Celebrate You! print ad

This is an ad I created for Dawn V Gilmore fine art photography.  It will be used in a publication she shoots images for.  I LOVE how it turned out.  Her images are amazing, the hardest part was choosing which ones to use, I liked them all!

Boudior photography: rack card

Recently, I've been doing work for a photographer in Port St Lucie, Fl, she specializes in "Celebrate You!" sessions.  They are like boudior sessions, but she really places a focus on loving the skin you're in no matter what size you are.  It's especially satisfying creating work for a business that is so great at helping ALL women realize they're beautiful.

Updating an old logo

A friend of mine is the director for the Bedford Audubon Society, she came to me and asked if I'd be interested in updating their logo.  Of course I would be :)

This was their old logo:
Not awful, but not very good either.

I came up with several options and we narrowed it down to 3:

The two are slightly updated versions of what they had and we decided to go out on a limb (pun intended) and give them a completely different 3rd choice, much more sleek and modern.  

They chose to go with....(drum roll please):

I was very happy they went with this one, it was my favorite.  It's nice when the client picks the right one :)

Another CD cover design...

This CD was re-named, so I altered the cover to reflect the new name and info.  I also changed the font of the title to something a little more dramatic.

CD cover design

This is one of my latest projects...a CD cover design for Smeezaleen's "Payphone Conversations."  I was given this picture:

and came up with this design:

This was a challenge.  It was a lot of photo manipulation.  The end result turned out great though and the artist was very happy.  I did a lot of running around and taking pics...the funniest had to be going to the only car dealership in the area that sold fancy cars, finding an Audi A7, hopping out, snapping as many pics as I could to make sure I got the angle I needed, hopping back in and leaving before a sales person came out to ask what I was doing.  You've got to do what you've got to do!  And the car fit in perfect...complete with a customized license plate :)

Trakdealaz Instrumental Mix Cover

My latest design is a cover for an upcoming instrumental mix tape

I was able to get a really nice glow on the type.  It looks pretty cool!
