It’s January 2012, it’s cold and there’s snow everywhere. Who needs another excuse to stay home with a cup of coffee or hot cocoa and browse through inspiration? Not me.
Also, yes, there wasn’t any December 2011 showcase. This won’t happen in 2012, promise.
The January 2012 Go Media Flickr pool showcase is a post from: GoMediaZine
Go Media is a creative agency based in Cleveland, Ohio. Besides the GoMediaZine, we also work for clients and sell stock artwork and design files on the Arsenal.
Happy New Year everyone. Amid the festive blur of the holiday season, Sessions College students were busy getting creative. Here’s a selection of highlights from January’s gallery.
AOS in Graphic Design student Kyle Gilbreath wrapped up his first semester drawing class with this eye-catching recreation of a photograph. Working from a color image is a challenge, but Kyle did a great job of capturing a range of values and the effects of light on the model’s face.
Graphic Design certificate student Vlada Chekh created this topographical tribute to her New York neighborhood in her Illustrator Advanced class. What we loved: the concept of the neighborhood as a fish, the loving attention to detail, the pieced-together typography, and the overall composition. You just want to jump on a boat and visit the burgh!
After the holidays, a menu might be the last thing you want to read. Multimedia Arts certificate student Fay Latimer gets creative and gustatory juices flowing with her old West woodblock print style menu design. The typography and illustrations are playful, and supported by a fun paper weathering effect. Prices look reasonable too!
Web Design certificate student Nigel Andreola continues to amaze us with his imaginative interactive artwork, proving that rumors of Flash’s demise are greatly exaggerated. In this project for the ActionScript 3 for Designers course, Nigel creates a drag-and-drop garden where you can water the seeds and watch them grow. Go to the gallery page, and drag the artwork around for the full horticultural experience.
Looking for something more arboreal? Multimedia Arts certificate graduate Karin Dijkstra from the Netherlands has been taking fine arts classes since graduation and has done some terrific work in her Watercolor course. This piece is one of four beautifully composed watercolors of woodland scenes.
