1st Screen Printed Poster

This is a poster I designed for Commercial Art and decided to screen print it.
It is a 2-color print on 11" x 17" Cardboard

This is after the 1st color and i'm getting the 2nd screen ready and aligned for the 2nd color to be applied.

This is the 2nd color screen which is the black outline of the image.

And voila! The finished product!

Album Cover


My intention for this project was to create an album cover for the Pittsburg State University, Department of Music. I designed it so that each section of the department (Keyboards, Strings, Choir, and Band) had their own spot for their information.

Target Audience:

            Target audience is people who appreciate the more traditional classic style of music.

Call to action:  For the viewer to want to open the cover, read the information and be intrigued enough to listen to the music illustrated

Rough Draft:
Front and Back full color
Trim Size: 9.5" x 4.75"
Margin: .25"
Bleed: .125"


Final Concept:

Front and Back full color
Trim Size: 9.5" x 4.75"
Margin: .25"
Bleed: .125"


Publication Ad

I created a full page ad  for Cosmopolitan magazine. I used a photograph from that was free to use for this project. My target audience are young adults from the ages of 18-25 in the middle to upperclass income range. The Call to action is to visit the Express website.

Full Page ad was a trim size of 8" x 10.875" with a .25" margin and .125" bleed

Collegio Newspaper Ad

This is a mock Newspaper Ad I did for class....and also doubled as a publicity piece for the Band 2 Steps Back playing at the grand re-opening of the dance club that was supposed to be renamed The Double Down Dancehall & Saloon.

10 thumbnails for the Collegio Newspaper Ad.

Rough Draft and work up of formula ideas. I decided on the 5.75" x 7.5" dimension for my Newspaper Ad resulting in an overall cost of $90.00

Hand drawn horse shoe design with casino elements to be used as a bitmap in layout.
