These are the original four labels I did for my beer project. After completing the project, I returned to it later to create two more labels in order to package six bottles, which seems more practical than just four. The creatures are inspired from the ingredients and process of making beer. The two new labels/creatures I created were water and wheat. I will post images of them tomorrow.

We would have to do four of these every week, to prepare us for the epic final. After choosing our best “evolutions” of type, we had to narrow it down to one and use it to sell an appropriately related product. The type I ended up choosing was very square and boxy, and so I named the font “proxy” and packaged home decorating things, like paint swatches, pillows, etc. I named the product line “Pixel Paints.” It’s not one of my portfolio pieces, but I had fun making the different letters and packaging something different.

I have plans to see this documentary on Monday in Denver with some buddies from graphic design. Should be interesting. Gary Hustwit made the film, same guy who did the Helvetica documentary which I have yet to see.

From the site:

Objectified is a feature-length documentary about our complex relationship with manufactured objects and, by extension, the people who design them. It’s a look at the creativity at work behind everything from toothbrushes to tech gadgets. It’s about the designers who re-examine, re-evaluate and re-invent our manufactured environment on a daily basis. It’s about personal expression, identity, consumerism, and sustainability.”

Mock Interview

April 16, 2009

Well I just got back from my mock interview. It went surprisingly well I thought. I may have stumbled a bit with some of their random questions (and I think I answered an illegal question by Tosha…grr. She asked if my life were a movie, who would play the lead role. I answered Johnny Depp. LOL). So yeah, I feel pretty good right now. Can’t wait to see everyone else’s via videotape. Mwahahaha.

Mock Interviewing

April 14, 2009

Today was the first day of mock interviews for my Professional Development class. I was in the second group interviewing my classmates. It was fun to be on the opposite side of the table for once, although I was a bit nervous at first. We had our own “distraction” spiel, where Andrew would spill a glass of water and have to clean it up. Also when someone would ask the pressure question, we’d all lean forward, hehe. Overall, it went pretty well and I think my own interview this Thursday will go just as well. It doesn’t seem fair that we get to know what the room is like and what the questions asked (by Karrie at least) but maybe that will all change too. We shall see.

hot pockets

These hot pockets aren’t agreeing with me right now. It’s been months since my last hot pocket. Perhaps I should have stayed away from them entirely. What’s a poor college student to do?
