This Special Edition DVD Case is for the 1997 animated movie, Anastasia by Twentieth Century Fox Films. The assignment was to create a special edition DVD case of our favorite movie. I have always loved Anastasia, and even though it was going to be a challenge to find some depth to channel into my design, it was my favorite. I decided to create three tiered acrylic case that would resemble a museum jewelry case that would house the Russian Crown Jewels for Anastasia's necklace.
This project was to create an invitation to a special even, that had at least 4 folds and an intricate and interesting die cut. I was inspired by the colors and fun atmostphere of the Indian Holi Festival.
Brizo Bay Resort is a brand that I created as a part of my Studio 2 class, in order to create a brand with many applications to showcase my identity design skills. Brizo Bay's logo is inspired by the resort's namesake, Brizo. Derived from Ancient Greek word meaning “to slumber”, Brizo is an ancient Greek goddess who was known as the protector of seafaring. Relax and enjoy the sea and a restful vacation at Brizo Bay Resort.
This promotional book was done in Graphic Design Entrepreneurship, Fall 2014. This was a great way to learn about making long documents and also how to one day create a promotional book for myself and my own brand. I chose Landor because of their iconic images, and history of branding companies like Fedex, Melbourne, BP and more. I elected to die-cut their L on the front cover to show through to the bright Landor-Yellow end pages of my book. The book comes in an embossed case covered in book fabric.
One of my favorite series, the Ender's Game covers begged to be redesigned. A stereotypical "sci-fi" cover adorns each book in the series, and the books are often an introduction for many kids into the genre, so I wanted to make sure the series stood apart from the other look-alikes on book shelves.
I approached the redesign by applying a simple space background with a geometric representation of a heads-up display you might see in a video game. I chose a font that was a clean, modern relative to the stereotypical "video game font".
