Slow and simple – the sloth gif

Creating an animated looping gif was by far the most uniquely challenging things I tried this semester. It was challenging to design something with the intention of having it come to life.  I started with many different ideas in sketch. I considered a blinking eye...

Not-So-Super Chief

A small train stops at a station in the middle of nowhere, with no people. Just lonely luggage and a calm desert zephyr… Trains have always captured my imagination, so I wanted to portray that with my final vector graphics project. I created all of the visual...

Hero of Time

The first animation idea that I had was to have Spider-Man swinging across the frame, and I would have a repeating background to show movement. I liked this idea, and still want to do it, but when I was working on the stickers for the last project I made the Master...

The Tooth Fairy

Animation is a whole different ball game when it comes to graphic design. Give me an assignment dealing with Illustrator, and i’ll be just fine! But, crating an animation in After Effects was a challenge.   The Process I started, as usual with sketches. I had a...

Puppy Love

I’m definitely a dog person and I’ve been wanting to do some kind of dog design for a while now, so I decided to a dog in Illustrator and turn it into an animated gif! I started out with some sketches: There were a few others but these were the best ones...

The Home Stretch

As I approached the idea of creating an animated gif, I was honestly overwhelmed at first. I wanted to create something simple, easily recognizable, but also interesting. I am an analytical person, so I like having things planned out before I move forward. And having...

A Devilish Idea

The Bad Idea Disclaimer: I’m not using the title as what I think of my giff, I’m certain plenty of people have thought of it. But for the sake of carrying the joke further, I dubbed it that. Anyway… Kick offs… Making a giff seemed completely...

Pinwheel in the Park

When I started this project, I was really stressed out! I had no idea what I wanted to do. When I sat down to sketch or storyboard, I decided that I wanted a space scene. When I started storyboarding it, it seemed like an amazing idea.  It was right when I started...

X-Winged It

The Plan The objective of this project was to create a Gif using Adobe After Effects. Personally, I wanted to create something that was colorful, fun, and looked professional. I knew from the start that I wanted to do something Star Wars related, due to the fact that...

Tip Me Over

This project stretched my abilities as I created this short animated GIF. I had to learn how to make my design look nice, but also organize it in a way that I could move it from Adobe Illustrator to Adobe After Effects. This GIF is designed just to be the teapot and...

KirbyWatch Mash-up

While I was approaching this project of creating new, interesting stickers, I was quickly excited to experiment with a mash-up of some sort. One of my first ideas was create a mix of kirby and characters from the game Overwatch. But as I was searching, I saw that...

Winter Hat Stickers

Sketching my Ideas At the beginning of this project, I knew I wanted to do something wintery. I tried different winter ideas. Sweaters, hot chocolate, fire, snowman, and holiday recipes. Although I thought holiday objects would be fun, I felt most excited about...

Spirit Animal Sticker Set

I wanted to create a set of stickers that I wouldn’t mind having on my laptop case. I am not a sticker person, so I knew it was going to be a challenge. To start off, I sketched some of my favorite things.  Of course I had to include my favorite things: fast...

Sushi, please

The Objective The objective of this project was to create three stickers that were either each their own idea or create a set of stickers. I loved the freedom that this project allowed. I had done some sketches in the past of sushi because I love how simple but cool...

Stranger Cats

My objective is to design some rad stickers that people would want to have on their water bottles, computers, skateboards, etc. Sketches: I had so many ideas when I began this project and had a difficult time deciding on just one to pursue. I wanted to do something...

Three Amigos

The objective of this sticker project was to express a set of ideas that reflected a group or individual. In this case, I allowed my mind to travel. I found a time period. The designs encompassed a few themes. My personal rules were to use a artistic and original...
