Ravinia Festival 2011 Poster
Ravinia Festival, an outdoor concert venue with upscale dining and lawn seating in Highland Park, IL, made a call for entries to all art students in the area to create their promotional poster for the 2011 concert season. Various artists who perform at Ravinia Festival are concert pianists, string orchestras, jazz musicians and vocalists.
2016 Paralympics Poster
This poster is part of a package of collateral items designed at the 2012 Square One Competition held at The Illinois Institute of Art in Schaumburg, IL. As part of a publicity campaign for the possible 2016 Paralympics in Chicago, IL, I was asked to design a logo and a poster for Wheelchair Basketball with the theme, 'Everything Within Me'.
Octobubble is a curvaceous, grabby, decorative script font that is easy to become attached to. This font roams the ocean floor in search of small, non-descript fonts to ravish. Its ascenders and descenders curl and undulate in a mesmerizing dance that will reel in its viewers. With a come-hither forty-five degree posture, Octobubble is elegantly aggressive. Is there a hint of Art Nouveau style showing? It’s very possible. Octobubble has free-flowing curves and knows how to use them- wearing no serifs to impede them! Thin lines at the cap height, thicken into waves of tentacles as the letters make thair way to the base line and long past. Octobubble stands out in a crowded ocean of typeface in a dangerous, yet playful, come-hither sort of way. As with any Art Nouveau diva, Octobubble is tastefully adorned with decorative bubble-like designs that are reminiscent of the orgnic configuration of an octopus’s suction cups.
What a Charmer Na-Hoku Jewelry Advertisement
Using my created font, Octobubble, I created this advertisement as a student project. I chose to showcase the beautiful octopus pendant sold by Na-Hoku, a fine jeweler from Hawaii.
