This tutorial was great example of using the camera and it’s depth of field feature. After completing the tutorial I swapped out the crosses for my logo. I then exported the image as an animated gif in Adobe Media Encoder, here’s the final animation.
As many things have changed in 2020, I felt my Featured Images for my Portfolio Widget in WordPress needed to be adjusted to the correct dimensions. I simply took a screenshot of the web page and created a Photoshop template to the correct dimensions for my WordPress Portfolio Widget. Worked on each image to showcase the best featured of each portfolio project.
The end result of these featured images drastically changed the feel of my home page. They fit the dimensions and give my user a more confident visual experience. Below are the “Before & After” images.
So, my girlfriend has a sister that can kick Sponge Bob’s butt in Karate… and to be honest, most people’s butts if they were looking to be kicked. For her birthday, her Mom thought it would be nice to get her a Karate belt holder, she asked me if there was anything cool I could come up with, I looked at her and said, “You’ve come to the right place” as if I was a destination. I added LED lights to the back of a Karate Belt unit and asked Surface Grooves to Laser Engrave her name in Japanese at the top. I simply sent over an Adobe Illustrator file over to Surface Grooves and gave them the belt holder and it was done in under 15 min.
This was a fun project, I would love to do more of these!

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.
