Digital Illustration

This magazine cover showcases the unique and extraordinary career of Ruth Carter, award winning costume designer for stage and screen. Three digital assets were made, her portrait, a sewing machine and a replication of fabric used in one of her costumes. These were montaged together to create a cover for The Costume Designer magazine. As an extension, the digital portrait was colorized.

Environmental Graphics

This wall mural was designed to represent the unique personality of this restaurant – that they are unapologetically them. This design is created in two separate documents for the printer, one for the layout of the wall wrap, made of two spot colors, black and red, with a tint of red for contrast. The other document is for the “pig” - a metal contour cutout that is printed in white ink and attached to the wall separately.
