Graduate Leadership Flyer

Oct 3, 2013 by

Description: This is a flyer that I designed for my Visual Media class this week. I was given the information, picture, logo and was assigned to design the layout. The layout had to fit in with the P-A-R-C-F principles (Proximity Alignment Repetition Contrast and Flow) to create a visually appealing image to the target audience. Process: I started by sketching 4 possible layouts with a fine pen. I then opened up In-Design and began to play with variations of my sketches. I started to play with alignment and repetition. Once I was pretty much set on my layout I began to search for fonts that would be appropriate and visually appealing. I had trouble finding a title font that I felt pleased with for this particular design so I searched on for a...

1920s, Art, Design and Life

Aug 24, 2013 by

My Birthday was just a few weeks ago, to celebrate we went to Park City Utah to do some Window shopping and we hit the town just in time for the Park City Arts Festival! While I was still in the Interior Design Program I had a teacher that would always tell us that everything about us should scream designer, and looking back from the pictures on my birthday, everything about me does! I saw a cute birthday idea on Pinterest for a 30th birthday, the theme was, “Out of the Roaring 20’s” well, I’m not thirty but I have just stepped into my roaring 20’s! I had to dress the part! I made do with a dress I had bought a few days prior and some accessories. I had so much fun at...

Light up the World

Jun 3, 2013 by

As many of you may know, I am always taking pictures, pictures of people and pictures of design that I enjoy or find interesting. A few months ago I went out to Dinner for a friend’s Birthday when one of my roommates pointed out the light fixture, me, being me felt the need to snap a picture of the fixture. Ever since then I’ve been noticing light fixtures even more than before and feel the need to take a picture of every light fixture that I enjoy! This is the fixture that started it all: This isn’t a fabulous picture, overall the lighting was pretty poor in Texas Roadhouse, however this particular fixture was very fitting for a table setting. There was a Dark shot over the bulb that was designed to keep the...

Business Expo

Apr 17, 2013 by

I’m back at home for the summer, my semester ended about a week ago. I’m waiting to hear from a company concerning the job I would like. While I have the time I decided I should post about a project I have been working on all semester long! The Rexburg Business Expo was Tuesday April 11th of 2013. I was able to assist the Rexburg Area Chamber of Commerce in producing the Business Expo as well as four other students. I was able to participate in the planning process of the Business Expo through my Events Management class, this was a great opportunity because planning real and valuable events is what I would like to do with my future. As students we started this project in January, the beginning of the semester. We were able...

Planning for the Future

Mar 10, 2013 by

I have officially changed my Major to Communications last week! My focus is going to be in Public Relations and I am taking a Unit in Advertising/Marketing. I have been thinking about being an Event Planner for almost a year now, but I still felt like Interior Design needed to be a useful and important aspect in my career. Not to long ago a big Idea hit me; why don’t I become an Event Manager for Interior Design Market Shows? I was able to meet with one of my teachers and he fully supported me in my academic plan, I was advised to go into PR and Advertising/Marketing which was what I was already considering so that’s great! I learned that basically you can work in any area of Interest when you go into PR (so...

Designing for The Business Expo...

Feb 11, 2013 by

I am currently taking an Events Management class, I think this is what I want to do with my future so I figured I better take the class because I don’t like wasting any time when it comes to my future. I feel the need to test the waters now. I am throughly enjoying the class. My teacher assigned a group of us to coordinate with the Chamber of Commerce to plan and produce the Business Expo this coming April. (Finals week/ move out week it’s going to be a CRAZY week!) With my design experience I was entitled to the position of the group “Designer”. I’m excited to start more design projects soon. The Chamber of Commerce has been producing the Business Expo for quite a few years now and yet they do...

Shifting directions

Feb 7, 2013 by

    My life officially takes voyage in a different direction. As many of you know my dream in life was to be an Interior Designer, I was going to travel all over the world, marry an architect (ideally haha) and establish a good business. God had a different goal in mind for me. Although I loved loved loved the Interior Design program, I went through all of 2012 really struggling with health issues and many other issues, I was having a hard time keeping up in the program and was not getting the support I know I deserved. I started to feel like maybe Interior Design wasn’t right for me, wasn’t where I was supposed to be. I kept talking myself out of this crazy thought, this was my dream and I wanted...

Symbolic Design

Sep 14, 2011 by

My junior year of high school I was assigned to write a paper about anything that related to the renaissance era. I knew there were many subjects I could have chosen from.  I decided to chose a subject that was a little more difficult to research that I was interested in: Renaissance Jewelry. I was also required to put together a presentation for my paper. I have been making jewelry since I was eight years old so I decided that I was going to make a renaissance styled necklace. I believe this particular piece symbolizes me because of the work that went into the item. I would rather accomplish something difficult that is interesting to me than to do something that is easy and boring for me. I enjoy spending time in my schooling, design...
