I’ve gone beyond traditional print media and websites, and converted ideas into fresh sharp artwork ready for screen printing or embroidery on clothing, or creating distinct unit patches and coins.
Here are two versions of a patch designed for the Counter Narcotics Training Team located in Afghanistan. For the indigenous teams, a patch was needed which displayed the Afghanistan flag and text translated into Farsi. In order to get sharp graphics, these patches were designed with line art in Adobe Illustrator. Text was wrapped around the circular pattern. The map of Afghanistan is in the background, and both flag colors appear on the eagle’s wings to represent the teamwork between the USA and Afghanistan forces.
Pizza-Grill.com approached me to design a website for their many locations, but like most small businesses, they had no artwork on file. All I had to work with was a menu and a photo of their signage. I designed the vector artwork from the bitmap images, and the new clean artwork was used in the site layout and for any print media. Unfortunately, it seems that the company has split up amongst the various locations and franchise owners and abandoned the website which I designed many years ago. But it did serve them well for several years, and it even had a database back-end where the owners of several locations could update each of their separate menus.
