Pathological Designers Editorial Layouts

I am currently collaborating with an old school mate on some editorial work. We call ourselves Pathological Designers due to the fact that all we do in life is eat, sleep and breathe design.

Please feel free to leave comments!

Pinnacle Management Firm Brand Identity (Freelance)

Recently I was given the opportunity to create the Corporate identity for an up and coming Firm called Pinnacle Management Firm. I had to start from scratch and create a logo as well as business cards.

I thought it would be nice to show some (not all) the steps I went through to finally complete their identity.

First I researched everything about the company which led me to come up with these logo concepts:From all the logos created Pinnacle Management Firm went with #7 (the one in the middle). After a decision was made I continued to alter the logo by playing with color and type.

After all the revisions the client and I finally came to a logo both they and I were happy about.

This particular Ad is tailored for outdoor magazines. The layout is clean and simple as the focus is the copy writing.

Your feedback is appreciated.

Trojan Package (Assignment)

While in my Production class we were given the task of recreating a marketed package design; I made the decision to recreate the Trojan "Her Pleasure" Condom packaging.

Problem: When women venture out to purchase condoms, there is a sense of intimidation. A woman's evening plans should not be apparent to every customer in the store. In addition, a woman should be able to carry condoms in a more discrete and feminine manner other than in the bottom of her purse.

Solution: I created a new package called Black Dress for Trojan "Her Pleasure" Condoms that takes on the appearance of a perfume box. Each box contains discrete, individually wrapped cases for each condom.

Enjoy! Please Leave Any Feedback!

P.S. I served as the Art Director the photo shoot :)

CoverGirl & WIBA Micro Site

While studying Advertising Design I was given an assignment in an Art Direction class to take an event and a product and combine the two. My choices? CoverGirl Cosmetics and the Womens International Boxing Association (WIBA).

I created an entire IMC Campaign for the two elements. This is the Rough Draft for the Micro Site I created.

This is my design I created for the MINI COOP Contest. The rules were to convey how small or ecofriendly the MINI is.

I decided to do coins to show how much you can save buying the MINI COOP and the coin also represents how small the MINI is.
