A postcard I designed to post out to friends and family. I decided to make the text “cheesy postcard style” which I enjoyed creating. I am also riding my bike wearing a dress that designed and sewed.

The secret with the text was the selection tool to get space inside the type and deleting the inverse from photographs. These shapes of photograph are in layers behind the black text. I also used the selection and expand options to apply a white edge on the inside and the outside of the text. This was the most time consuming part of the process.

This was a fun, simple project which only took me an hour from start to print!


2012 Diary

I was so very unhappy with the diary I bought in 2011. I really liked the size it was as it fits in my handbag/utility belt and the idea that there was plenty of paper to just draw on. The downside was there was too much paper wasted tellling me which year it was and having lines that were too small to write in. It was the very standard diary shrunk to be about A7. I started redesigning a better diary just for me!

Wedding Book

I was very happy to hear that two good friends of mine were getting married and even more honoured to be the photographer at their wedding. The day went very well and the photographs turned out quite well despite being in the harsh Queensland afternoon sun.

As an extra special present to my two friends, and their family, I took the best photographs and created a photobook for them.

I had a lot of fun taking the photographs and lots of fun creating the book but the most fun was the reaction of the new bride, she loved them. I have already been told that the people she has shown it to have really liked that I captured the feeling from the day within the book – my aim exactly!


website wallpapers

From my Archive: 2007

When I was studying at university there was a to-do list that went on forever. Since I was studying computer-based art and design I have some useful skills up my sleeve and I spent heaps of time on my computer. It made sense to have a digital to-do list. I managed to “dig up” a few of these website wallpapers I made to combat the list:

These website wallpapers comprised of:

  • whatever image I was fascinated with for the week or I made my own to fascinate myself for the next week
  • links to programs most often used
  • links to exact files stored on my hard drive (saved so much time)
  • step by step to-do list for every class
  • whichever typeface fascinated me the most at the time (the two examples I found use Brushed)

I updated these every other day to cross out things and made a whole new one most weekends. Sometimes I started with a table for each day sometimes it was grouped into classes.

These website wall papers were a great way to continue developing my HTML website making skill set and by using Window’s active desktop setting I made something that was easier to navigate then my operating system.
