Another Day at the Office


Influence. Impress. Inspire. Ignite.

I always knew one day I might get a chance to work in the industry I love, an industry that kept my head above water when nothing else seemed like it could. The web is ours and the time is now, so make the most of it! For me, every day is a new opportunity, not only for myself, but those around me. This sketch is a dream I am turning into a reality. I didn’t do it alone, I have been given help by people who aren’t even into web development like I am, yet their help was a crucial factor in my own dealings with the world. Every time I look at this sketch I think of where I was, where I am, and where I am going. It also shows you a little of my drawing abilities.

Every meaningful element within a composition is a distinct adaptation of an even greater design, and when based on our senses and inclinations, our consciousness creates even more of these adaptations in an almost endless number of ways. The elaborate concepts found within a design, which designers will have in their minds even when they are not at their computers, help them reflect on these distinct adaptations silently, and within themselves. It can be called meditation, or motivation.

The Great Gatsby Book Cover

Even though being in web design can generate higher levels of income, I never entered the industry because of this. The Great Gatsby shows readers a fictional story of what can happen when the pursuit of wealth overcomes the pursuit of life, liberty, and happiness.

I wanted to mix in several different elements in my illustration into a cohesive whole. My focal point was the piggy bank with the bloody hand on it, giving an impression of someone taking the piggy bank who might not have made it out alive. The eye can then branch out and see the wine and the cigar (which, if you notice, sits on the stack of money as if the money is being lit on fire). Even the table these items sit on is of a nicer wood. Opulence isn’t always pretty.

There are many important concepts a designer will take into consideration in contrasting degrees when formulating a design. For instance, the various ways in creating a navigation menu. Very rarely does a designer assemble a menu together without first taking notice of the most prevailing characteristics of a menu, since it is composed of a diversified number of qualities found within art and design, including typography selection, color choices, placement, size and other elements requiring attention.

"Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee." – Muhammad Ali

The wise become foolish if they seek after the wrong things. In business, competition is tough, but it doesn’t mean you profit through questionable means.

Strength. Capability. Reliability. Aesthetical. These are the virtues I wanted people to see when they look at this logo. By appointment only: this company’s brand manifesto spells it, word for word, the seeking out of all complications and impossibilities in order to annihilate them. Yet… there is a delicacy even stronger than all the rest. This company’s paths are straight and conclusive. Collaboration. Agile framework development. People are the greatest asset to any business, so businesses better treat them right, or the only strength remaining in that business is the signing over of all responsibilities to more qualified managers and officers.

Whoever would give an account of the most basic visual appearance of a website to someone who already uses a computer to watch movies, but has never been on the World Wide Web before, would, by reciting the idea of a navigation menu, responsivity, grid design, positioning, largeness of elements, shape, color order, etc., may be described in enough detail that it may be altogether known what was being defined. Others given the same explanation may not understand how a diverse number of basic website elements that assembled together would constitute a website, but not having acquired any real-life experience or consciousness thereof of a graphic user interface or a computer, no description may be good enough to galvanize their imagination of it.

King Idea Graphic Art

King Idea’s domain is over the majesty of the human mind through which is born the creation of our existence and survival in the Universe in which we live. Humankind has flourished as a result of good thoughts, emotions, and behavior. Where it doesn’t flourish, this is the result of the mismanagement of thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.

Seeing things in color usually requires the removal of thinking of reality only in terms of yes/no, hot/cold, strong/weak, etc., etc. The variety of possibilities is truly endless, making life less about two opposing forces and more about an array of mutually interdependent possibilities. This graphic artwork wants to represent the idea of ideas. Without new ideas, and ideas created from already existing ideas, the way the world of art and design is contemplated would be much less interesting with only the mundane taking center stage in any given context. Metacognition is thinking about your thinking while you think to make your thinking better. This portfolio piece was my attempt to make my artwork better.

The prime uniqueness we are obliged to witness within our designs is this, that the handpicked development solutions we utilize on a website, or as we discover, the multitudinous arrangements of design elements beginning their formation in the psyche of us as developers, and in conjunction with the most basic foundations of art such as shape, color, form, space, texture and value: in which these most simple of ideas the mind can’t generate on its own accord, thought it apprehends such qualities as granted access to us by something greater than us, based on actual reality, as performed on us like a transcendental program with a grand design such as an email requiring a username and password to send a good friend a message.

Stanley, the Portfolieau Mascot

With just a few images of odds and ends the development of a robot can be achieved using layers and masks. Stanley was my first real attempt at masking, which I am much more experienced in now. The key is how the photos are never destroyed using this method.

As I began to navigate through my undergraduate program in my first year at the Art Institute, I was given an assignment to paste together different elements to create a "computer critter." The final output shows viewers my ability to take a few interrelated objects in the real world and fuse them together to create something new. Besides Dreamweaver, Photoshop is one of my most utilized programs of the Adobe Creative Suite. The program offers me unlimited possibilities regarding photography and image manipulation.

Through the familiarity of our own practice and studies regarding artistic arrangements, transmitted into our consciousness through certain noticeable impressions of what we see, as the numerous ways a web design influences us, including our perceptions of line, color, shape, form, value, space, texture, balance, proportion, emphasis, variety, movement, rhythm and harmony, these elements and principles are some of the greatest investments to familiarize ourselves with in regards to our designs, and the World Wide Web.

This movie is Rated R, and may not be appropriate for children. I was able to see some of the original horror movies when they first came out. Friday the 13th, Freddy Kruger, Halloween, the list goes on and on, and they were all new releases when I was younger. Hollywood found a way to make people jump in their seats, and make people tell the screen, "Don't go in there!" As an ode to the classic 1980's horror film, I created this movie poster. In the words of Mrs. Voorhees, "Jason was my son, and today is his birthday."

A design does not generate any noticeable impression to those who perceive it unless the progress and change found in the design produces a continuity and sequence of fresh ideas and memories. A potentially stagnant design doesn’t move its audience anymore, and the consciousness of the viewer will recognize the lack of progress and change in a design, especially when there is a lack of continuity and sequence of thought.
