Adobe Illustrator is my favorite Adobe program by far. I feel as though my most creative pieces are done in Illustrator and the possibilities are endless. I especially like working in Illustrator because all of the specific type treatments you can achieve. These type treatments are also known as typography.
Typography is something that I have always had an appreciation for. My grandmother always had beautiful penmanship, and it always caught my attention. I would have her write sentences for me just so I could see how precise her cursing writing was. Now my penmanship is something that I pride myself on. I look forward to upcoming projects in the future such as creating my own font. Here are a few examples of some typography pieces I have created.
These were two state posters that I created, one for the state of Hawaii, representing the states slogan “The Islands of Aloha.” Whenever I think of Hawaii, I think of warm tropical sunsets and volcanos, and that is what I tried to represent through this poster.
The second poster I created was for the state of Alaska representing the states slogan “Beyond Your Dreams.” When I first think of Alaska I think about the beautiful northern lights that are displayed, and icebergs, and that is what I represented through the poster.

50’s Retro Posters.
Here are two 50’s, and 60’s style posters I created using Adobe Illustrator. The first one is a poster for a makeup subscription company called ipsy. The second one is a poster to represent the social media Pinterest.
