more calisthenics

I am pretending the budget is the moon and proposing a series...


I am not quite sure how I feel about this one. (Too teen pop singer?) hmmm. The curly brackets need to calm down a little. At any rate, this dada type-image interaction has potential...

Flexibility test. (Praise the good lord for Tristan Tzara.) The word night is supposed to feel like a shadow within modern. (A recurring accusation seems to be my supreme ability to create cryptic messages. I don't mind—but until my name is Venezky, I will have to posture myself with slight concern.)

Sadly this design would have been much better if my printer was working—so I could give scissors to my neglected analog innerchild.

push-ups & sit-ups

Just cracking knuckles and such. Loose (not yet April-worthy) comps for the love of process, right? Oh and hello high modernism, oh how I adore you.

Is it possible to describe, A Modern Night at the Folly without a dancer?
(Man that 8pm does look horsey. Could I create something a little more happy and limber?—contrary to popular belief, hot pink does not always sift away the stiffness of a design.)

project m

adam johnson is a kind person

Adam Johnson, an artist currently studying at Pacific Northwest College of Art, has granted permission to apply his soundtrack to our sidewalk advocacy video.

He sent me a link to his vimeo site as well; I would like to share the beauty...In my opinion, Adam Johnson possesses the dangerous ability to transform everyday moments into breathtaking experiences.

where the sidewalk ends

tom, amanda and I joined forces to spread the need for sidewalks and crosswalks in Rosedale—specifically with a goal to give kids safe passage to the park.

flight school 2

I always have to begin outside of the computer with real materials, before I enter into the computer, unless my objective is a super stiff design.

design decisions: As a whole, the goal is pathos—to invite the viewer to experience aerial acrobatics, all in a quick glance.

The ribbon type contains the indexical information of the silks. I avoided revealing the face of the dancer; the viewer can now impose his or hers in place. The type is cropped to add the larger than life feeling—and of course to reference the high modernist dance posters of the glorious past.

learning curve

hey, that's my shoe.

revised and more dirt laden

The goal of this visual identity will be to convey the idea that vegan food can be surprisingly and explosively tasty. The tone of voice will be caring and optimistic. The attributes to be embodied will be friendly, organic and eclectic chic. The needs fulfilled will be healthy and flavorful food located in an inviting and non judgmental community.

Stationary will be an item for sale in the restaurant. The front at back covers will be printed on make ready stock whenever possible. This would likely be a handmade item as this company cherishes thoughtfulness and detail.
