Saturday 8/15 - Friday 8/21

These past couple of months, I've been the busiest I've ever been. I'm working on a remote team with a few start-ups. I'm also creating my own passion projects to get better. I realize that no one would ever know what I do if they just looked at my portfolio. Hence the idea for this blog, that I'll update every Friday. This is the first blog that's starting on a Saturday, which should be the normal day.

Stuff I Can't Share Yet

I led my second workshop in a week! This time it was much more relaxing and a subject matter I'm much more familiar with in design. I talked about color and design principles. Then we each had about 30ish minutes coming up with a logo for this brand. I'm excited!


This was the only thing I did today. It was nice to relax afterwards.

Sketching wireframes for Pixel Perfect's new site

Process for the Cycle design

It started with a sketch

Then I put it on the computer

Then I added a few lines to make it more clear.

Added some color

Then I thought the design would stand out with a black background and I was right.

Webflow - Prompt

Since June, I've been working on this project that is about getting people to create a design, music or a short story based on a word that is prompted to you. It's called Prompt. This could become a real thing one day. But I'm using it to use Webflow and Adobe XD.


Webflow is a fun program to use but I'm in that learning curve stage and I'm trying to self-teach myself which isn't an easy task.


Here it is on XD: https://xd.adobe.com/view/d2d6d3c6-e6b3-4da3-bc1b-d01ba87bdf6e-8785/?fullscreen

Here's what it looks a couple of pages on XD if you don't want to click the link:

Now this is what it looks like on Webflow

Designing on XD took me a day and Webflow took me 2 and a half months. But all things considered, it looks pretty good.


If I were to take this project further I'd have to pay, so I'll consider that. But for now I'm at a good stopping point with WebFlow. I'm thinking of new Webflow projects I can take on with XD.

Democracy for Pixel Perfect IG

This design was a two parter. One was for the background and one was for the type.

Here's the type evolution:

Then comes the background: I started off with stars with the Red, White and Blue pattern.

Then I wanted to combine each star together to show that each star is similar to each other.

Here's the final version:

Blast Vegas

This is for my friend's brother band. My friend is making a website for him and wanted me to create the logo. I'm giving my friend three options and he'll pick one of them. Honestly, I love all of them. Colors and type might change but the concepts will be the same.
