The goal was to destroy Portage and Main, well not for real.
This was achieved by research and collecting items that looked like broken up buildings and rubble.
Using different types of brush tools, which helped, give the illusion of fire and smoke.
Overlaid the image with a gray opacity and using the ease tool in certain areas.
The red eye tool to black out the signal lights on the street. It was a fun project. Instructor provided photo.
School assignment. For this assignment, we had to create a wordpress website for our favourite band, movie or video game.
I decided to go with a collector’s blog using my family's collection of toys.
The background was created in Photoshop of all the items represented on the website with a pink overlay.
The assignment was to include custom loops
and other additional code was used to increase the usability and readability of the site.
All the photos were taken by me for the use of this website.
School assignment. For this assignment, we had to create an 11 x 17 poster for print of things we are interested in such as music, video games or movies.
Creating several thumbnails and creating hand drawn roughs before recreating the final rough into digital form was time saving.
I chose purples and blues because it represented colors of the lights during a concert.
The grain textured pattern overlay on the poster gave it a grunge look, which suited the band Eddie Vedder, and Pearl Jam.
The font is Intro Rust G and it gave the poster a rock concert tone.
Art Expo Website Redesign
School assignment. For this assignment the goal was redesign a page from festival site
or art show website. The site had to be responsive and visually appealing .
The Art Expo has been around for years and used different themes each year.
I used a masquerade type theme with a lot of dark purple colors and image of a carnival mask.
The navigation bar in the mobile site was not the typical hamburger menu
due to the majority audience is older and need a more visual access.
The image of the mask eyes helps direct the audience to the navigation.
I opted in changing the logo to look more modern with a black background.
Provided for this website redesign were free stock images.
School assignment. The goal of the assignment was to redesign a comic cover to a poster and make it responsive.
I choose Nocturnals by Dan Brereton. The poster was in black and white only and the focus was on the typography.
The story had multiply characters that were supernatural misfits that fought criminal underworld and supernatural.
The font I chose was the same for the show the Sopranos, it is fitting due to the storyline of the book.
Since the assignment restricted us to black and white, I made the characters as silhouettes.
It was a fit due to the book was about supernatural beings that were a type of hero's.

We were required to redo the home page, a post, and the third option was our choice.
I simplified the design and created a modern and cleaner look.
I decided to keep the posts of the original site but laid them out in a uniform design.
The audience would scroll downward through the website and hover over photos of interest.
Once hovered, a popover effect will occur and the images will appear larger.
The sidebar images hover effect will open a related page to the subject matter that was chosen. I had taken the entire photos provided for this redesign.

The goal was to update the design of Joe Black Coffee Bar and improve the layout by making it responsive, and to create two pages from the original site.
