More DJ Flyers

So back when I had my weekly dj gig, I would throw together a flyer design every single week (usually during my lunch break). This would mainly involve scanning or pulling an existing image from some source, making it extra silly, cleaning it up, doing a fitting font & text treatment, and then emailing it with a description of the event.

This was before Facebook and Gmail and probably Moses, so you whippersnappers don’t know how easy you got it. Now git off mai bermuda grass!

Anyway, I hope you enjoy these, and those who were there, I hope you enjoy the trips down memory lane. =)

Jazz Anew Email Compostion (first of many)

Jazz Anew email composition

I took part in three dj events in one week, so I created this email flyer for them all.

DISCLAIMER: EACH and EVERY Thursday (for well over 3 years), I created some sort of quick Photoshop graphic to promote my Jazz Anew dj night (usually made during my lunch break). The basic idea was to borrow a sample image from somewhere and then change it and create a pretty neato email flyer. I made certain to manipulate the images enough so that it became an entirely new piece of artwork.

Click on the labels with red text to advance through the timeline. Once you have viewed a section, you can view it again at any time.

These are 2 animated Air force timelines that I created while under contract with American Research Institute. This particular Air Worthiness Course ended up winning the 2005-2006 STC (stc.org) Distinguished Award for Technical Communication In the Training/Tutorials division.

Animated PC timeline for Lenovo/IBM

This is a rough mock-up that I made while working for Lenovo. They wanted to pitch an idea for a historical timeline of IBM PCs for the Lenovo acquisition of IBM’s personal computer line. It never took off, but it was still a quick & fun Flash project. The scrolling and animations could have used a couple more hours of massaging to make them smoother, but I was pulled off this on put onto another project. That’s life in the corporate designer fast-lane.

Lenovo ThinkPad display for Office Depot

Lenovo ThinkPad display for Office Depot

A ThinkPad display that was used inside Office Depot stores in the US. This is also a good example of how the final product can drift from what the original design was intended to be. All in all, I am still happy with how it turned out.
