City of Tracy Fall Activity Guide

The City of Tracy contracted with my employer to produce their quarterly activity guides. This activity guide was created with a team of three members; a Creative Director and two type-setters. My duties as a type-setter were to do all initial content transcription, and the preliminary layouts. Out of the forty pages of the activity guide, around thirty were type-set by myself. The Creative Director and I also completed the quality assurance for this project.

City of Tracy July Flyer

The City of Tracy needed a flyer that would be used as an insert into their quarterly activity guide. It was a calendar that had a physical activity for each day of July. The flyer's activities were intended to bring people together with their family, friends, neighbors, and fellow Tracy residents.

I made this flyer double sided to keep the information interesting to read, and to also make it fit easily in an 8.5" x 11" booklet. To make the flyer appealing to both teens and adults, simple shapes with vibrant colors and pictures that related to both demographics were used.

Mae Soren had specific requirements for her business cards. Besides containing the usual contact information, they needed to have a classy and antiqued appearance. To meet those requirements, certain design elements were utilized including a dark layout, a bold script font face, and a vignette finish.

This project was a class assignment. The instructions: create the cover art for a fictitious book about myself. To portray my personality I used bright orange monochromatic hues, and a picture of myself. Having always enjoyed simple geometric design, I also incorporated that style into the cover art, which gave a clean yet introspective result.
