Friday Quote No. 8/2014

Happy Friday! Today I’m sharing my latest quote poster to send you into the weekend with inspiration.

Work hard quote poster

I was inspired after reading this article, an interview with Bari J. Ackerman, artist, illustrator, pattern designer, and fabric designer. I’ve always admired her beautiful work!

This quote reminds me of advice I often received from my mom as I was growing up. It continues to apply at any age, no matter what I’m doing.

Enjoy your weekend!

It felt so good to turn in my final project for Color Theory class on Monday!

Our mission for the final color project was to:

-Design a series of 3 in-store posters, each measuring 5 inches wide by 9.5 inches tall, with a focus on sports or fashion. I chose REI because I love being outdoors.

-Use a split complementary or triadic color scheme. I chose a triadic color scheme of blue-violet, red-orange and yellow-green.

-Make the figures the focal point of each poster, and the typography the least dominant element.

I used Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign to create these posters, which was great experience. Since I’ve used Photoshop the least, I found some tutorials to accomplish the techniques I needed to learn to pull off my concept. I spent a ton of time on these designs, so I’m happy with how they turned out. I was also very happy to hear my teacher liked them. What a great way to end a challenging class!

Thanks for stopping by.
