ILLUSTRATION

ConnectWise Illustrations

During my first year at ConnectWise, I was part of developing a new illustration style for the company. We decided to go with a lose, modern, and realistic style with two tone coloring and outline. We set rules for how illustrations should be colored on the corporate website, e-books, print collateral, and digital assets. One of the primary goals set for me was to build out an illustration bank for other designers to quickly access and use on various collateral and design assets. I built out a bank of arrangements that communicated specific concepts of our business software solutions and technology terms.

In addition to a new illustration style, I was part of redesigning and establishing specific design rules for icons. During my time at ConnectWise, over 250 icons were created to express the concept of various technology terms within the Managed Services industry. The icons were some of my favorite tasks to tackle due to the complexity of some of these specific industry terms.

Trouble Monster’s Alphabet is children’s book I have been working on as a personal project. I wanted to combine typography elements with illustration to teach kids the ABC’s with a graphic design twist. I have been drawing these monsters since 2008 and have come back to them through out the years for different projects. The name trouble monster is derived from the term “trouble makers”. These characters create chaos from being naturally curious and not having any self-control, much like kids.

The Co-Lab Arts magazine cover series was a fun personal project that I created out of my fine art drawings. I have always wanted to combine my own fine art images with vibrant colors of painting or other design elements. The concept of the Co-Lab Arts magazine was to spotlight amazing work that comes out of collaborations. The style of the cover designs were largely inspired by my favorite magazines, Print and Adbusters.
