Multi Media Construction - Style Guide

Cover image of Multi Media Construction logo style guide
Multi Media Contruction is the business entity through which I do much of my freelance graphic and web design work. De-construction is an element of design that demonstrates, (to a lesser or greater degree), the process whereby that element was created. It is used here to show that the hard hat is in fact a digitally constructed asset and not a simple photograph.
Multi Media Construction logo rules
An effective style guide should demonstrate some of the thought that went into the creative process while guiding the designer through the approved methods for employing the logo in any document or communication.
Additional Multi Media Construction logo rules
Any other logo treatments should be clearly defined in any effective style guide. This ensures the consistent visual integrity of the brand and is vital to establishing brand identity that regular customers as well as potential customers can rely upon.

Fashion for Profit - 10th Edition

This was a major project that involved many contributing authors and fashion professionals. I did all the finish rendering on the cover image as well as most of the illustrations. I also did much of the final editing and pre-flight work. It was an honor to work with Frances Harder on this project as well as many others over the years. A copy of the book can be purchased at this link: Fashion for Profit - 10th Edition

I worked closely with a client to design this art work for a major music festival/event. They sold really well at the show! The art work was done using Illustrator. We kept expenses down without compromising quality or readability through the use of contrast. Sometimes, less can be more!
