Hey everyone! Yes, I’m still alive. A big reason for the silence around here this last month or so is that the Fall semester is in full swing and I am back in school full-time. I know I sound like a nerd but I’m so excited about my classes! I’m taking Photoshop, Typography, and Web Graphics. It’s been really fun learning how to use digital tools to execute the ideas in my head. I’ve been watching lots of tutorials in my spare time to learn as much as I can, though I have to say my sewing has suffered a bit as a result! Anyway, I thought I would share some of the projects I’ve been working on:
The photo above is a packaging design I made for my Adobe Illustrator class last semester. We had to create a package for some kind of edible product, and I decided to do salt water taffy (yes, it’s so I had an excuse to put a cute mermaid on the front). I kind of went all-out with the ocean theme and did a shell cut-out for the front window and seaweed and bubbles on the sides.
