User Interface / Experience
Design (UI/UX) Desktop
I chose an existing non-profit organization and created a web design for the desktop browser in Adobe Photoshop. This design utilizes what sections/facts the current WATER IS LIFE website includes. However, the main inspiration derives from how I would pitch a new web design to the organization should they decide to change their current platform. All images were released under a Creative Commons License or approved for use by the visual artist.
Design for Mobile
Designed for smartphone browser.
Magazine Cover Design
I picked a story from an online publication and used it to design a feature magazine four-page layout (two spreads) with words, pictures, display, type and graphic elements. I didn't use any pictures from the original article and I credited the original photographer. Background image and effects done in Photoshop, utilized InDesign for the typeface.
Opening spread for the article. Created a new headline and deck (different from the original article). Utilized content-aware scaling feature on original image in Photoshop to allow for better visibility of the typeface and multiply blending option to darken the edges.
Jump Spread Design
Included drop-caps, pull-quotes, a fact box (bottom right) and captions for images. Utilized original article as body copy and modified pull-quotes for design purposes. Established my own indents, margins and column grids in InDesign.
Jump Spread Design 2
Included a side-bar story which was not in the original article. Those were my PERSONAL Top 5 tracks of that month.
