Typographic Portrait

typographic portrait

These pieces were created in Design Fundamentals where I teach the students Adobe Illustrator and how to think of and use typography in different ways. Mad Hatter was created by Angie.

The piece below was created by Marie. I absolutely love this piece, the color relationships, contrast and handling of type.

Immediately below is a typographic portrait completed by Heather. She used a photograph of her daughter to create a sweet illustration. My favorite thing is how she created the dandelions from W’s and T’s. I am always impressed with the incredibly talented students here at PBSC.

Character Design Illustrations

Book illustration by Anabel, for Professor Victoria Martin's Publication Design Course

The illustration above was created by Anabel for my Photoshop 1 class, Fall 23. The assignment involves students creating a character¬† design. This is Anabel’s portfolio cover page for the asisgnment. I blurred her last name for privacy concerns. The students illustrate a book cover and accompanying movie artwork. She’s incredibly talented and inspiring to all of those around her. As well as being a really nice person.

Kayla’s menu design

student menu design for Professor Victoria Martin Publication Design, Palm Beach State, Lake Worth Campus

This post features Graphic Design student Kayla’s menu designs. The piece was made while she was registered for my Publication Design 1 course at Palm Beach State, Lake Worth Campus. Students are asked to find a restaurant that needs a branding upgrade. The images of food were taken from the restaurant’s Instagram and for the drink, we added the logo in Photoshop. Great job Kayla, I am sure there will be many more clients in your future.

Student Feature: Dot

Professor Victoria Martin student work

Today I would like to feature Dot a graphic design student at Palm Beach State College, Lake Worth. He created this work as part of his end of term portfolio. The students created a surreal world. Dot created an environment based on a favorite video game.
The image above is the montage he created for the assignment. Below he includes a sidebar to illustrate all of the components found in the composition.

The bottom image shows how he mocked up a landing page, which included a thumbnail of his game artwork. Well done, Dot. As always, your layout and presentation are top-notch.
