Instead of hand crafting my own envelope i bought these models of envelopes which are similar to the types you get from the bank. I intend to personalize my envelope by adding my logo etc. for this i have created a number of stickers of my logo to stick on to my envelope. it’s a pretty simple design but everyone loves simplicity and it’s only an envelope its disposable.Instead of hand crafting my own envelope i bought these models of envelopes which are similar to the types you get from the bank.

So i watched this origami video and was hoping to create my own envelope to give my work a homemade feel to it, but it didn’t turn out exactly the way i wanted it too so I frustratingly gave up. Unfortunately i didn’t manage to document my poor effort of an envelope since it was a bit lob sided so instead here is the process i used. 


Poster design
I tried putting as much emphasis on my card design as this is the key to getting in touch of me and is the main function to my self promotion items. I kept it simple with a bit of typography at the top to introduce a user what this letter is all about, the type interlinks with the font i used for my letter. I used strong words in my poster such as ‘FREE’ everyone loves free things and to see that on my poster will hopefully entice people to read my letter proposal.Poster design

Gift card poster designs, these are very simplistic and minimalist posters to introduce people to their rewards scheme/loyalty card. I particularly like the first poster because of its informative typography and great use of imagery it maybe simple but it stands out and speaks a thousand words about what you can earn from a points card. I am now designing my own poster for my self promotion hopefully its as informative as these designs  Gift card poster designs, these are very simplistic and minimalist posters to introduce people to their rewards scheme/loyalty card.

this my new revamped version of my self promo letter. I tried simplifying my design and using the same colour scheme as the reward card i made so that it doesnt look as random as my old design. For this new design i have included more text and created small icons and added a few new features to make it look a little more professional.  View Larger

my new reward cards design developed. as easy as it looks to create and to have been developed, looking for the correct font was very tough so i went for a slim simplistic typeface and position it across the top left corner sitting underneath my logo.my new reward cards design developed. as easy as it looks to create and to have been developed, looking for the correct font was very tough so i went for a slim simplistic typeface and position it across the top left corner sitting underneath my logo.my new reward cards design developed. as easy as it looks to create and to have been developed, looking for the correct font was very tough so i went for a slim simplistic typeface and position it across the top left corner sitting underneath my logo.my new reward cards design developed. as easy as it looks to create and to have been developed, looking for the correct font was very tough so i went for a slim simplistic typeface and position it across the top left corner sitting underneath my logo.my new reward cards design developed. as easy as it looks to create and to have been developed, looking for the correct font was very tough so i went for a slim simplistic typeface and position it across the top left corner sitting underneath my logo.

Business card design
my initial plan was to redesign a bank card with my logo and details on but after listening to my feedback a change of card design is in order. for my new design i was told to remove the visa logo and use typography to have a rewards card title on the card. i plan to make a small batch of cards made by the same material pvc and emboss the number strip ie my phone number over the front.Business card design

These are some good examples of bank letters i have looked at to format and verbally word my rewards letter.These are some good examples of bank letters i have looked at to format and verbally word my rewards letter.These are some good examples of bank letters i have looked at to format and verbally word my rewards letter.

Tutor Feedback

After presenting my work to everyone i got some good/bad feedback on the progress i had made. Although i have worked hard on my letter design i was told it needs formatting properly. one of the comments a fellow student made was ‘i should remove the visa logo on my card and put a reward card header on there instead’ i have now got a lot of adjustments and tweaks to add to my work. 


Web Designing - My Thoughts

Saying “I want to learn web design” is like saying “I want to learn how to cook”. There are thousands of recipes out there and many different styles of cooking.

There are thousands of web design specific tools and general principles that every designer should know. Since web design is such a broad field, I find myself asking ‘how to get started?!’It’s this question that stops me from even getting started at all with web design. With so many tools to choose from to start learning, I end up at not choosing anything at all. So to begin making my website for my portfolio I will do some research!
