One of the challenges posed with designing for their basketball program is that both the men's and women's teams need to be portrayed on the same billboard. However, Ryan, the marketing director at UTC, was very pleased with this design. His critique of it was also very thorough which I appreciated. We started with this billboard design as a test project to see how my remote internship next semester would work. We are still working out the kinks, but doing this project and getting such positive feedback has me very excited about my internship in the spring.
This is a new concept for the front of our NPDA poster. It is still in the theme of playing cards and based off of one of my newer thumbnails in a previous post. It is a stylized version of a king's/queen's robe, right at the frill. The Roman numerals are the upoming years for the event (2011-12) and I left the 2 spots open in the middle to allow for dates, with the spot at left open for the NPDA official logo.

This is a poster I created a few weeks back for the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga's chapter of Habitat for Humanity. I only recently posted it because I just received the official information listed at the bottom of the poster. I had a lot of fun making this poster and thought it turned out pretty well.

Cam Newton case, and seeing as he is the front-runner for the Heisman right now, I think I would like to do a 5th piece on that story.

The top left one has Roman numerals for the "2011-12" part that has to be in it. I got that idea from an 1848 deck from Vienna. I flipped the NPDA logo halfway to mimic how a card is reflected, and all is incased inside a close up of a king's robe with suit designs as pattern on the frilly stuff. The hard-edged suit signs were spawned from a Russian deck I looked at.
The top right one is modeled after 15th century French design of showing a full version of a jack, king or queen standing to the side of the card with pattern all over the frill.
The third one is based off a modern design I looked at. I decided to make it king and queen just to cover both genders. I think the way the title reads could use some work, but I liked using the little twirls and simple wavy lines as hair.
And to be truly honest, I have no idea where the 4th design came from. I just started drawing and that's what happened.
Any feedback and stuff that is working/isn't would be great.

This is a flyer I recently completed promoting Knoxville Ice Bears Group Nights. The space left in the top right corner of the image is for seperate company names and branding or places they would send this flyer to. I played with the idea of making the flyer look like a ticket to a game, using the low opacity image as that light image that usually appears behind the event on sports tickets. I also played with letting the hockey player guide your eye over to the rates bar at the right.
