LG Dare Flash Ad

lg_dare_thumbThis was one if my first forays into flash. I had just gotten an LG Dare and so when given an assignment to create an animated ad in flash this seemed like a great choice.

Avila Surfboards Website – Flash

This was a class project to design a website for a real client in Adobe Flash. The client had some stipulations such as, we were to use their logo and color scheme and they wanted a particular image used for the background image. They had a set size and wanted particular pages created. This is my first site created entirely in Flash.

Air Application

This was a project whose goal was to produce an Adobe Air Application using Adobe Flash. It integrated video, Flash, and Air technologies. The final product is a fully functional Air application meant to introduce viewers to my portfolio.

Zoo Poster

This was one of my first Adobe Illustrator projects. The goal was to produce a poster for the San Diego Zoo where the main focus was an animal created using gradients and the gradient mesh tool. I thought a Zebra would present an interesting challenge and cause a large amount of meticulous work… Turns out, it did. I was seeing stripes for days!

This was a Web-Campaign project. The goal of this project was a web based marketing campaign for a fictional company. Primary tasks were to develop a corporate idendity (Logo), and create a multi-page site containing company info and contact form, and Email blast info page.

Magazine Cover

This was an Adobe Photoshop/Illustrator marketing project. The goal was to design a cover for an existing publication using certain techniques. The techniques to be used were photo filters and warps. Also learned in this project were packaging and output for print techniques.

San Diego Downtown Map

This was another Adobe Illustrator project. The goal was to create a map of Downtown San Diego using specific Illustrator techniques. Mainly the layer style function and path style definitions. As this is one of the “coolest” areas of San Diego this was a fun project to work on.


This was an Adobe Illustrator project. The goal was to create an object using gradients and the gradient mesh tool. I chose to re-create a Chevy Camaro because I thought the lighting and metallic texture would present a good challenge. I always like to challenge myself, especially while learning. I think that it helps the technique “sink” in more that way.

Fur Campaign

This was an anti-fur class project. We were to design a poster for the Fur Free Alliance. The goal of the ad was to disuade people from wearing fur with vivid imagery. My concept was to have a beautiful girl on the poster, but make it appear as if an animal was wearing her as skin. The tag line says it all, “They don’t wear us, so don’t wear them!”

This is was a re-design of an existing site done for a class project. We were to find a site and give it a face lift. It was required to have a contact form in it and this was one of my first implementations of one.
