These guys have some big name clients! I got to design for Uber, Renter’s Warehouse and Cowboy Jacks just to name a few. They’re also super cool guys with positive attitudes. Unfortunately I’m not going to be able to display all the work I did for them due to the fact that some of these big gun clients don’t want their material to be public. But! I will show you what I can.

I like the typography in this flyer I designed for Cowboy Jack’s St. Cloud, also, it seems as though they have a mean happy hour on Thursday’s.

When Halloween came around it was time to create 6 different posters for the 6 different Cowboy Jack’s locations. The background is a stock photo, but the rest was all me.

I wound up designing some landing screens for the Cowboy Jack’s app. I had to size these correctly for all Android  and iOS phones and tablets in both portrait and landscape mode so I won’t post all of them.

I also designed an app button for use on a phone or tablet. Here are a few different layouts:

When they needed a pre-existing logo modified to print better on a cowboy hat, it was go time. I edited this based on their specifications.

When New Year’s Eve rolled around, Cowboy Jack’s needed a killer poster for a killer party at their six different locations. This is what I provided.

I created an ad for the 2014 Polar Plunge for Cowboy Jack’s. My Photoshop skills are on display in the initial layout.

They wanted to tone it down a bit, so the final wound up looking like this:

Budget Marketing Solutions  |  2013

These guys have a good thing going, they’re a print shop located in NE Minneapolis but they do a lot more than just print things. They brought me on as a Graphic Designer to assist their lead designer in 2013. BMS works with a lot of local businesses. They do everything; channel lettering, storefront signage, large format printing, brochures, you name it. It was a great experience working with BMS.

I did a lot of image manipulation working for BMS. This menu showcases layout design as well as image manipulation.

I designed this ad for a local lawyer, it went up on the side of a bus stop. He’s almost life size!

This is an enormous in-store sign I designed for OrangeTech, it’s hard to avoid large file sizes when you’re dealing with something that’s 8′ x 3′.

I designed this menu brochure for Greek Stop, if you’re in downtown Minneapolis you might see their food truck sometime. I would strongly suggest getting a Gyro.

Diagnostic Group LLC  |  2012 – 2013

My first real design job after four years in college was as a Graphic Design Specialist with Diagnostic Group LLC. The Group, as I started calling them, consisted of five separate companies that all made audiometer equipment. My work was mostly for two of these companies, Maico Diagnostics and Interacoustics. I will admit, it was pretty exciting to see a dual-monitor setup walking in on my first day, and I had all the programs any designer could ask for. I believe these pieces demonstrate my ability to aesthetically layout and design marketing collateral while adhering to brand standards and best practices.

I believe this piece exhibits some pretty cool typography, I also snapped the product shot prior to creating the ad.

This piece demonstrates my skill in photography and image manipulation as I snapped the product photo in the image below and manipulated it in photoshop accordingly. I also designed and laid out the ad.

Here’s a few pictures from a Christmas card I created for Interacoustics. I got a little carried away when creating this penguin as they wanted something a bit more professional. He’s cute though isn’t he?

H&H Marketing  |  2012

My first taste of the “real world” in the design field was as a Graphic Design Intern for H&H Marketing. They’re a small, fun company in Burnsville, MN. They had me doing graphic design work for all sorts of business. See for yourself!

I did a few different things for Perske, here’s a couple direct mailers:

In the second one, I went in and embossed their logo with the pen tool, they liked it!

I also performed some image manipulation, note the shadows on their faces.

For Roundbank, I did various flyers and ads, and I designed one of their quarterly newsletters.

In the above flyer I traced the money stack in Illustrator to make it a vector image, allowing me to manipulate it easier. I also designed the flyer and performed some image manipulation on the hand.

Here is the quarterly newsletter I designed for them: H&HRBNL2

I designed this ad for Buckingham. It required imaged manipulation and layout design.
