Going Crazy with Owls

Up until recently as far as my Graphic Design experience would go I would only make things for some family and friends and never really myself. Also with having a busy college schedule and social life there wasn’t really anytime to expand my portfolio.This has also caused me to suffer creatively and experience wise. So I decided that I would have to find a reason to expand my graphic design skills as much as I can. I decided to join the my school’s newspaper. When I told the Production Manager of my interest to join their team she said that would have to show her the sample work. The problem with that was I didn’t have any recent work to show her, with being busy and all. So I just decided to I would just make something to show her.

And then this little guy was born:

I used Illustrator to create this little guy. Time: 20 min

Since I didn’t have anything to give her I decided I would try to give her a piece of what I could do by giving her that could possible appease her. Since my college mascot is a owl I created my own little owl. I ended up really loving the design very much. The problem was this one design wouldn’t be able to showcase all I could do. Yet I have little time in the day to be able to create a slew of different designs. Also unfortunately I cannot afford to have Illustrator and the latest Photoshop. The only time I can use these programs are pretty much during school hours. Since I decided I really like this little KSU owl I chose instead of creating a whole lot of different designs to show her a sample of the type of things I could do with this one design.

Thus all of this other little backgrounds and things were created:

Just a face plate

This is was just when I had
This is was just when I had an idea of a little notepad design.
This was a pattern design that I did in Illustrator. I was a little bit difficult but I'll discuss that in a later date.

So there you go! Wish me luck!!
