New things!

Student Project: TED Talk Idea - I completed this project for a recent course, Integrated Design Media. It was a difficult task throughout the course of the semester, but I’m proud of the final results of this piece! See full process book here: Kristin_Phillips_TED_Conference_process The Ask You must envision and create a fictitious TED conference. Explore visual identity through media appropriate…
Typography Poster: Type Design - I was so excited to start this photography course at the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD)! Typography is an area I aim to continue personal growth in, so it was an excellent opportunity to develop important skills in layout, kerning, hierarchy, and other type design focuses. This piece had a pre-created text for…
Resume Template - Project: Resume Redux I’ve always liked the idea of a visual resume, one that would showcase what I did and what I could do while standing out from the standard templates. I created this template in Adobe Illustrator after researching some other resume layouts. The colors I chose have a united cool palette, with orange…
Image shows the outline of a feather in white and grey. Website Icons - Project: Icons Minimalist icons are a new experiment for me, and one I wanted to incorporate into a website for work. I needed three icons for the front page, one to use for the history section, one for the bird research, and one for the mission. The three needed to match in style and simplicity…
Image shows a business card with a blue watercolor texture. The left side says "Kristin Philips, Multimedia Creative" and the right side has an octopus and contact information. Business Card Idea - Business Card Design For a possible business card design, I tinkered with a variety of ideas. I wanted the card to be a mix of traditional and digital media that featured my octopus mascot (see portfolio piece “Darcy”) with an original font. I created this lettering using a brush pen for my name and a…
Image shows the logo for the Tawas Point Birding Festival, which features a stylized Piping Plover flying toward a lighthouse silhouetted by the sun with the words "Tawas Point Birding Festival, May 19-22 2016" next to text describing how to "Become a Sponsor" on an orange background. Tawas Sponsor Form - Project: Sponsor Form At my work with Michigan Audubon, I often have to design documents. Designing documents that are branded, streamlined, and visually easy to comprehend is one challenge, while convincing my coworkers that I wanted to take the time to expand the design or put extra work beyond half an hour into a design…
Image: Artwork depicting a red dragon perching on top of a mountain. Art work is stylized with a minimal color palette of reds, blues, and purples. Red Dragon River - Project: Fantasy Graphic Design For school and work, I’d created a variety of pieces in Adobe Illustrator. Creating one of my own for personal experimentation was a project long overdue. I love the work of John Howe and other classical illustrators, but I also have found a recent inspiration in the minimalistic work of present-day…
Image shows a watercolor art piece that features a stylized background of green trees in blue mist, with a blue forest floor, and a stylized blue bear with an angular face. Blue Bear Woods - Project: Fantasy-Minimalism in Watercolor I created this piece as an artistic experiment, hoping to grow my skill with my new watercolor pencils. Previously, I had experimented with fantasy-minimalism in a digital format in Adobe Illustrator, and I wanted to implement a similar style in a traditional medium. Watercolor pencils translate well to simplicity, so I…
Photobook: Finding the Fantastic in the Mundane - Project Photobook This pdf is a book I designed as a capstone for my photography class in college. The goal of the class was not only to learn photography methods and techniques, but also to practice experimental photography. I took all of the photos and per class instructions, completed the layout in Lightroom. My focus…
Rusty Blackbird Blitz Infographic - The Rusty Blackbird Blitz Infographic was another piece created for my current job at Michigan Audubon. This piece fit into a broader conservation project that I developed with a coworker. She spearheaded the organization as part of a national project to help count elusive Rusty Blackbirds, a species believed to be in a dangerous decline.…
