Villain Paper Lanterns

Client: Self Motivated These die cut paper lanterns are designs I created for my blog, Designs By Miss Mandee. Die cut design is something I've fallen in love with over the past few years! In 2017, I challenged myself to design and produce four different paper lanterns based on Disney villains. For this project, I specifically focused on villains that undertook a transformation in their movies. Their respective paper lanterns depict them in both of their states (for example: Maleficent is shown as both a witch and a fearsome dragon). The finished products are 3D in nature, and look particularly good int the dark.

Die Cut Paper Lanterns

Client: Self Motivated These die cut paper lanterns are designs I created for my blog, Designs By Miss Mandee. Creating die cut designs is a fun challenge for me. For this project, I wanted to merge the mediums of story-telling and paper cutting, and incorporate them into a 3-D space. These lanterns are a part of a series I intend to continuously build upon. They each depict an iconic Disney scene within four small windows. These delicate designs are created out of one sheet of paper, but give the impression of something much more precious.

B&G Wedding Invitation

Client: Braiden & Ginnia Braiden and Ginnia are a cute couple from Ogden, Utah. I took their engagement photos and designed their wedding invitation. They wanted the design to have a rustic/vintage feel. The flowers are my own hand drawn illustrations, incorporating a watercolor texture achieved through Photoshop. I used black and white photos tinted slightly beige to achieve a more vintage appearance. These muted photos also aid in making the flowers on top really pop. I used a combination of a hand painted script font and a hand drawn sans serif font to add a stark contrast between the type, while continuing with the rustic theme.

Grant Victor 15th Anniversary

Client: Grant Victor Founded in 2000 and headquartered in Kaysville, Utah, Grant Victor is the foremost retail-style ATM service and solutions provider in North America. Grant Victor wholly owns four strategic business units, and together the family of companies facilitates the access and convenience to cash in the consumer marketplace. 2015 marks the 15th anniversary of Grant Victor. When I set out to design a mark for the celebration, I chose a more muted color palette and incorporated lots of crystal elements (because, as anniversary traditions go, the 15th year is the crystal year). The Grant Victor "G" is inlayed to look like it is growing from the crystals and the color is inverted in white to make it really stand out.

Nurturing Animals

Client: Weber State University This project started with the prompt of creating a poster revolving around the topic of elephants. The poster designs were then sold to faculty and students at the Weber State University Campus as part of a fund-raiser to help save African Elephants. My concept hinged on the ideas of minimalism and sentimentality as a way for the audience to relate. I have since extended this project into a series of compositions about mother and baby animals.

Mardi Gras Postcard

Client: ATMequipment.com This is a postcard design advertising a sale for the customers of ATMequipment.com. Each year, ATMequipment.com hosts a Mardi Gras sale for customers who submit ATM components for repair. Green, gold, and purple are iconic Mardi Gras colors. I included both the purple and gold colors in the design to create a feeling of luxury while still reflecting the idea of Mardi Gras. The contrast of the script title and the serif font in the body copy also add to the sense of luxury, and make the recipient feel more like they are being invited to an upscale event rather than receiving an advertisement.

EMV Infographic

Client: ATMequipment.com This is an infographic I designed to help the customers of ATMequipment.com learn more about the upcoming transition of magnetic strips to EMV chips on credit cards in America. The design of this graphic is laid out so that a view's eye is guided from top to bottom, answering the questions What is EMV?, Why make the switch?, and to inform the reader of important dates at the end. I made use of simple, flat design elements along with directional arrows, and variations of one typeface. I also included lines in the background of the design reminiscent of circuit boards—lending to the ideas of data and transaction. The circular chart graphics near the center are designed to both draw the viewer in, while presenting information in a way that visually easy to understand.

Disney Quotes

Client: Self Motivated These quotes are both designs I created for my blog, Designs By Miss Mandee. I wanted to do something that had a Disney feel while incorporating minimal design elements and colors. The Cinderella design makes use of the color blue to resemble the dress she wears in the movie. The design also includes swirls of sparkles reminiscent of when Cinderella's fairy godmother uses her magic to create the dress for her. The quote from the Cheshire Cat includes a stylized image of the cat's tail in the background. The tail itself is made to look as if it only partially there, giving reference to the cat's ability to disappear. Both designs utilize the same font combinations, and a similar color palette so as to be a part of the same set.
