Thumbs like lightning

thumbs of speeeeedHave you experienced the awe and wonder of a modern day kid sending a message on their device? You know, the keypad? Well, it’s a thumb pad really, and there are some fast thumbs out there. But “The Walrus” can form a fat paragraph in the time it takes to witness a bolt of lightning across the sky.

This young lady can find answers online fast, text a message, and score highest with thumbs that blur in front of your eyes! Her thumbs have been trained with repetition.

Lifelong learner

In 2013, an 8-week program at San Francisco University was done online. Certification training in Integrated Online Strategies offered juicy knowledge and notes on internet marketing. I learned about search engine optimization, tracking and reporting, blogs, sites, pay-per-click advertising and more. There were four exams, and the notes and lectures were pretty interesting.

Dual platform designer

With every day of the week, I am jumping back and forth between the Apple and Windows environments. To get things done in 2014, I am armed with multiple devices. They operate in different environments as well.

I really enjoy working in both settings.  Windows has been predominant up to this point, in the corporate production room.

Logo design for Gang Green Productions in SLC

Nerd & geek culture

A project for Gang Green Productions, this art was an event logo for a concert which was also used to announce the birth of SLC Nerd, in Utah.

  • A quick series of clicks to create a Utah-shaped polygon,
  • glasses added for sure (even though plenty of us nerds wear contacts)
  • “Cities would be like zits” idea was almost immediate as well, largest one at Salt Lake City, of course

There was a horizontal version, too. Vacant space within the borders of the state wasoo vacant, the mouth had to be added with Lake Powell and Colorado River. I love the mouth’s expression caught with a pretty accurate depiction of a lake in the southern region of the state. A funny and nerdy mouth shape forms in just the right spot.

This was a fun task.

Visual Communications

Four areas of production strength

An asset to any visual media production room, I can provide strong support in four areas. I can operate independently if necessary, or more desirably, as part of a talented team—where each associate has serious skills getting utilized along project workflows.

Sometimes black and white works well. This was created with a marker and scanned into Photoshop for some value on cheeks and eyes.
