LOGO & BRANDING – Legacy Financials

This is a basic LOGO & BRANDING project of a financial agency. The client already has an idea, color scheme, and general look. This made my job a little easier. The whole idea is based on a SHIELD. The initial drawing given to me had a distinct shield shape, but as we progressed, we ended up concentrating on the letters L and F but maintained a subtle shield form. The red strip that we incorporated is to identify with the AXA company where they are accredited.

The whole render was made in Adobe Illustrator and then laid out in Adobe Photoshop. We also created a cover photo for social media posting.

BOOK COVER – Covid-19 (Chance, Accident or Judgement)

This is a very controversial book. I did not write this, I just made the cover design.

Let me just say this – Agreeing to take on this project does not mean I also agree with their stand on what the author is saying about the current global pandemic. I am also a Christian, but I do have my own stand in the current issue.

It took me around one and a half hours in conceptualization, image preparation, and actual design. This was made in Adobe Photoshop. Images used are royalty free.

PRINT DESIGN – 24 Hour Preaching Flier

The considerations in making print designs are fully dependent on your client. Mike (pictured in the flier) likes to print full letter sized (8.5 x 11) fliers in full color. I believe he prints these using a digital printer in small quantities.

The initial consideration to this particular piece are the elements – Image of the clock, Image of Mike, Title, content, and footer details. I don’t know why I opted to use a dark background that eventually got revised.

The approved design is the lighter one where you can fully see Mike!

VECTOR DESIGN – Kulot! (curly)

This is my first ever VECTOR ART made in Adobe Illustrator. It took me almost 5 hours (including the steep learning curve of drawing from Photoshop to Illustrator). This was a commissioned artwork that got canceled. The sad reality of the freelance art community.

This piece inspired me to look into the technicalities of vector art. I will continue to post my other artworks as I progress into this specific type of medium!

VECTOR DESIGN – Self Portrait

A SELF PORTRAIT!

Yes, that is me. I took the liberty of taking off some unnecessary layers from my face. The important thing is how I view myself (hahaha… self-love!).

This artwork took less than an hour to create from scratch. I already developed a workflow (thanks to youtube) that I intend to follow and improve as I go down the freehand business. It’s not my cleanest work, but it is the fastest. I guess there’s some advantage in drawing yourself. One of it is that you cringe so much that it motivates you to get it done!
