My Dad asked me to print more business cards, the only problem with this… was that this design was made when I first graduated LIU Post in 2012. I desperately wanted to adjust the design, it was cringe worthy as my designing techniques have changed drastically. Only changing the design slightly, I am very happy with how these business cards came out. I sent these cards to my local printer Grand Prix Litho on Long Island instead of VistaPrint like I did the first time around. Since I didn’t go with an online company I was able to get a better quality product and it didn’t break the bank. I chose to go with a Satin Matt Laminate with a Raised Spot UV on 16pt cardstock. I absolutely love these and so does my Dad!
So our Mayor of Sketch N’ Chill decided to get up and leave New York to live in Arizona… FOREVER Maybe. I had known Eric for a very long time as well, we went to the same school – POBJFK High School on Long Island, New York. He was always the life of the event I held every 2 weeks at a bar called The Republic in Farmingdale. Members as well as good friends supplied drawings and videos to produce a memorable piece of content for his Facebook page. I collected all these various forms of media and created this video to give Eric an energy boost to grant him the confidence he needs to start fresh.
A lot has changed since 2014… that was the year I decided to redo my Graphic Design Resume in a style that fit my career of choice. I wrote about creating a project like this and showed my influences – Check out the blog post here “Creative Graphic Design Resumes…”
Here in 2020 I decided that I need to update my resume for various reasons, one being I became older and my photo was a younger version of myself. Along with that photo update, I wanted to re-design the layout to be able to fit more jobs and experiences on that standard 8.5″ x 11″ piece of printer paper found in most offices that are hiring people, not robots… I’ve never worked at one of those and don’t know what paper dimensions they use.
It was time the 2014 layout needed a change for 2020, below is the before and after.
I recently got a Wacom tablet this passed holiday season and instantly fell in love with this device! If you haven’t tried one of these guys, you need to ASAP! As you can see from in my gallery I do a lot of work for The Muckrakers for my brother. When I think of Punk Rock I think of grunge, and dirt. So I used dirty paper textures in the background to give it that feel.
