These are sketches from my very large Illustrator file. What you see is the sketch placed within the card in a couple of sizes. Also some card design variations.

Illustration 4- Sketches for Card Deck

These are the preliminary sketches for my tarot card deck, the original thumbnails are under the digital line art. The cards here would be The Fool, The Emperor, The Hierophant, The Empress, the High Priestess, and The Magician. The designs are based off of traditional interpretations of the cards as well as art by Kay Nielsen and Ida Outhwaite.

Illustration 4- Sprout House Logo Final

Illustration 4- Sprout House Logo Process

This is the process I went through for designing and choosing my logo for the company logo project in Illustration 4. I explored a couple different designs like the chair and the square house design before going back to my original sketches and trying the circular house design. The whole process was done in Adobe Illustrator which made it easy to branch off and explore different designs. The final page is my final design choices.

Typographic Broadside

These are my two posters advertising the Egyptian typeface Rockwell. I had wanted to work with a mustardy yellow color but that transformed into a construction orange which I find very striking in this piece. I experimented with outlines, especially the off centered ones that you sometimes see in traditional prints. The skyline is the city of New Haven, CT, the home town of the creator of the text Franklin Pierpont. I feel that overall this project was very successful.
