Trying SkillShare

I’ve wanted to try and expand my horizons and diversify my skills when it comes to design and I knew I couldn’t do it alone. So, I’ve decided to give SkillShare a try. SkillShare is a service where thousands of experts teach you almost anything under the sun – from motion graphics to sewing to, well, probably anything you can think of! So, I’m focusing on graphic design for now.

My first lesson was on fundamentals of design, layout, and using grids to direct the flow of design. Below are a few two page spreads that I assembled using what I learned through those lessons. They aren’t totally refined, but it was good to try something new and just get it out there.

Sticker Design Prompt

For a recent job application, I was asked to design stickers based off of two promts: “Thank you for making my party magical” and “Best Day Ever”. I put together a handful of different ideas using the required copy, some art assets I was given, and the option of making/creating my own assets to express the prompt. I had a lot of fun designing these which was a different experience than my recent works like character illustration and award design.
