Typographic Posters

Professor Victoria Martin's student work

This work was created by beginning design students Sara and Kylin. The students were encouraged to explore classic typefaces as they researched the type designer. I enjoy the playfulness of both designs. They were featured in the graphic design student show on Lake Worth Campus. Great job ladies!

Digital Imagery student Veronica

This post features Digital Imagery student Veronica. I love her paintings so much. They’re fresh and colorful. TheĀ  line quality and brush strokes are so lovely and loose. I love how they are feminine and goddess like.

I would totally buy one of these paintings. I am so impressed with your work Veronica, well done!

Digital Painting by Crystal M

student work Professor Victoria Martin

Today I would like to share a work of art created by the incredibly talented Crystal M. Believe it or not, this painting was Crystal’s first attempt at painting, and I would like to tell her that it shouldn’t be her last. Pablo Picasso and Cubism inspired Crystal’s portrait of the artist Frida Kahlo.
The blending of two separate faces, the colors, and composition all make this an incredibly well-executed work of art.

If you like art and painting, and even if you think you’d be no good at it, you should consider registering for one of my Photoshop classes.

Concept is King

Professor of Graphic Design and Art. Victoria Martin's student work

Concepts are probably the most crucial part of creating a successful work of art. Today I would like to feature an illustration created by Jessica. I asked the students to research Shepard Fairey and create a piece inspired by his style. Jessica drew an incredible sketch and digitized it, employing a monochromatic color scheme. It’s important to remind students that computers are just a tool. Without strong concepts, you may struggle with creating designs. So, next time you have a project due, take out your sketchbook and get to work.
