logo for a Skillshare.com logo design class I just finished. The assignment was to create a logo for your city.
If you don’t have depression, this video might be weird or a waste of time for you, but maybe it will help you or someone else.
I hope is helps at least one person
My website doesn’t currently have anything to do with depression, but soon I will be developing a movement to give hope to people with depression, Growth Never Ends. Currently I’ve planned to make it my personal brand as well, but I’m deciding if that is appropriate right now.
Edwin Poché, a CT and good friend at the Brandcenter said, “Allen, I need a robot holding a heart for my website and I’ve got ten minutes, go!” . I was happy to oblige.
It’s hard not to have fun when you add liquor
I’m tired of black bags at the ABC store. These are way more fun and tell you how fun the contents are.
As the bag is filled and held, the eyelids pull up with the handle, and the weight of the bottles push the frown into a smile. This could be done once (with a paper bag), or automatically with a bag that has a springy wire bottom to hold and retain shape.
This post is a submission to my Creative Thinking class with Cabell Harris. The class brings CT’s, CW’s, and AD’s together. This particular assignment was to concept an interesting bag of any sort.
Three print ads for Wite-out in Wayne’s Problem Solving for Art Director’s class.
Wayne and the class said that the word doesn’t need to be corrected in red, that they seemed forced, but they were getting close, so I’m excited about that :)
Birth of the backdrop (minus the last parts of footage because they were corrupted). What’s recorded here is probably ten hours or so of working.
If you’re interested:
The whole project cost about $90 dollars or so, and took probably 15 hours if you include concepting and rough drawings.
-1/2 in x 4 ft x 8 ft foam sheathing panels from Lowe’s ($10 each x 4 panels)
-Household all-surface white primer as a base
-Emptied two Montana spray paint cans each (six total) of red, orange, and yellow.
-Partially emptied a black, desaturated green, white, and a lighter green of Montana’s
-Used custom stencils to block off the glasses lenses
-Used box flaps to help make crisp lines where doing it freehand wasn’t practical
-Textured the skin with a pattern that we came up with, drew onto cardboard, and stenciled in a few places with varying intensity
-Brushed in the camera flashes, teeth highlights, leather jacket highlights, and parts of the glasses with some of the left-over primer
-Brushed watered-down black acrylic paint for a few dark areas like teeth lowlights, neck shadow, hand texture, hair, and the dark parts of the cigarette
My good friend Seung Woo Suh and I just finished painting this bad boy for the VCU Brandcenter talent show: Talentsaurus-Rex
We primed the panels yesterday and painted them today using spray paint and brushing acrylic paint. I think we started at about 3 or 4 pm today and just got done (2:34am), worked all day/night, woohoo

My nontraditional ad solution for Comedy Central involves setting up arcade games in which you challenge Comedy Central’s claim that they are “The funniest thing in town”. You get to play against a Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, The Workaholics, tons of standup comics, and more. The cool thing about this is that they could easily be updated to promote a new show or a new character on a show.
The stations could be set up almost anywhere, and would be a hit in subway stations, bus stops, and other heavily trafficked spaces. I can’t believe I just said it would be a “hit” ugh… anyway, you get the idea.
This is ridiculous, haha.
So I was hoping to go super dark with these concepts for Comedy Central. The concept was that Comedy Central is funnier than live performances, thus performers aren’t wanted anymore. Again, sorry if it’s offensive, but maybe it’s funny. There’s also this whole thing of “never say you’re the best at anything”…. so that’s gonna be fun.
Solutions for this week’s Wayne Visual Problem Solving class, unless I can do some more before 9 am.
Didn’t quite work out how I planned. The concept was G-shock watches for women are Tough and Sexy… hard to show without being sexist (sorry easily offended people)
