Website Redesign (Pt. 2)

Just an update:

I have recently spent a couple of hours rethinking and remolding my new website. I have continuously applied for jobs, and I want to use this website as an element of my knowledge in my field of study. With this website, I hope to show a future employer my skills with not only blogging, but also my full understanding in the Adobe Creative Suite. Be on the lookout for more to come!

Career Search

In May 2018, I graduated from St. Cloud State University with Summa Cum Laude. I received a B.S. in Mass Communications emphasizing in Advertising and a minor in Graphic Design. I am now currently working as a server at Crave. I have been exploring my career aspirations by looking for jobs on Indeed and LinkedIn, but I have not come across a job offer yet. I’m excited to see what’s next!

Freelance- WordPress Consultant & Tutor

Last semester I helped a former professor, from St. Cloud State University, build a website. I helped him with content editing and website structuring, while also teaching him how to use WordPress. He had never used WordPress before, so I taught him some of the things I learned in class and on my own time. After creating his website, I helped him promote it over LinkedIn and Facebook.

His website is about Criminology-Theology Connection. Make sure to check it out!

Poster Project

Today in class I created a rough draft of an event poster. We had to pick an event that is going on at the Walker Art Center. I picked the event “Cultures in the Park.” Here is a rough draft of what I have so far. I am going to play around with the title and put it more towards the side of the poster.karateposter.jpg

Brochure

Today at my internship I’ve been working on a tri-fold brochure for Fred’s Heating & AC. They provided a sample of a brochure that they wanted to mimic. It is not completed yet; I am planning on adding a message from the owner in the red box and applying a white gradient at the bottom of the box. Here is what it looks like so far:

 

 

 

 

 

Typography Mask

Today in class we had to pick a character from a movie who we liked. I picked Edward Cullen from the Twilight series. After we picked the image we had to create a typography mask. We had to lay text over the face, so that the end product would just be text. We had 2 hours to do so. This is what I came up with.

Site Redesign

Hello everyone- I am undergoing a website change! This website was initially used as a class project, but I will now be using it as my online portfolio. I will be blogging about how my internship is going, while also posting the projects that I have completed. Can’t wait to start creating this website.
