Description: Integrated business cards and letterhead made with personal logo.

Process (Programs, Tools, Skills):

I used Adobe Illustrator to create a business card (front and back) and also a letterhead. I used the Pen tool to make the light bulb logo and also the curves on the letterhead. I usd shapes to make the gradient on the front of the business card. I exported these to jpg. format and tweaked the letterhead file in InDesign.

For the letterhead, I wanted the purple header to be transferable across documents so all the information is on the header shape. I also added a watermark, a light copy of the logo design at 15%. This was a trickier task, the letterhead in general, because I wanted it to be similar to the business cards but still simple enough.

Business cards were fun to make. I wanted the logo to be repeated and seen in different colors. Its a simple, catchy, yet versatile logo that can be modified but still constant. My idea with the light bulb was to associate it with ideas, that’s why Ideas is the first word in the tagline.

Programs/Tools Used: Adobe Illustrator & InDesign

Message: Personally, I want to come across as a professional woman that can put creativity onto paper. That’s where the black, gray, and purple play in. Purple is feminine but not overwhelming and goes well with black and gray.

Audience:  Anyone in need of a designer or creative mind

Top things learned: I learned how to repeat the logo in different but eye catching ways. I also learned how to group and unite objects, which makes it easier to move things around in the project. I learned how to better use the Pen tool also.

Color scheme: Monochromatic Colors: Violet

Title Font Name & Category:Courier New, Decorative

Copy Font Name & Category: Coranto 2, Oldstyle & Corbel, Sans Serif

Week 3, Day 7

Great day of communication. Went to church and only fell asleep a little. Got some great messages that are helping me to be better. I have come to love sacrament meeting a lot more than before. When I actually out thought into it, it becomes so much more meaningful and I have a spiritual experience. Today was one of those days. I also said many long needed prayers. I have also come to love praying for others. I want to help others and I always pray that my friends and family will be blessed in ways that they need and that they can find peace in their busy lives. I feel like it opens my heart up to those individuals and it also makes me be a better friend and listener for them in the future. When I am listening for certain things that are bugging them or that they are excited about, it helps me remember what I should say in my prayers for them. It helps me remember the little things in general, that they may not have thought I had caught. I know God hears me and this process improves my communication both with my Heavenly Father and with those close to me. Hope you enjoy reading my thoughts on communication, whether it applies to family, strangers, boys, friends, or to God, it’s always important to be open to communicate and to express what you have to say . I love keeping in contact with my God through prayer and seeing the relationship grow. I hope you can find the same thing too 🙂
