Well I did a lot more but it would take too long. I even did powerpoint backgrounds for my presentation that I had to give to the CEO at the end of the internship as well as ones for their bridal expo and things like that... I liked mine too but they don't look right when I put them up here. Anyway they had my lithographs of the colored and blank face as cool sidebars in a very sleek look for me to put all my thumbnails on. Anyway. Yeah. It was fun... and I might go back too. Who knows. Anyway for now I'm enjoying Omega learning the ins and outs of taking those files off my computer and putting them on paper!
So yeah I made anything and everything they wanted me to. And by made I mean designed and laid out in the computer. Postcards, take-ones, flyers, banners, posters, koozies, etc. It all had to look similar you know within a corporate look but it was still pretty varied. take a looksee. Here's a flyer.

So in case you've been wondering where I am, I'm now working for Omega Printing off W. Story in Irving. My internship went well, and perhaps one day soon they will take me back, its been off and on really... but for now I'm learning all the other half of designing on the computer. It's now my job to see how the files I used to just make, go from files to real actual objects. It's quite amazing actually and thank God I took that one semester of Printmaking from Jurgen. Modern print shops really are amazing. and it is a small company (of just 7 of us or so) so it is really like a family; complete with tons of everyone giving each other a hard time. We laugh a lot there, which I really like. So yeah I haven't don't much designing for Omega, but perhaps soon I'll put up pics of the kinds of stuff I did for First Horizon. So yeah, look forward to it. I haven't had much time for my own work really, but maybe when I get more settled into a routine, and get a real place to work, I can get back to it. For now I've just got tons of doodles and thoughts...
