This is a sketchbook that I designed, printed, and hand-bound. I love working with my hands whenever I can, so this was a great opportunity to learn a new skill and really gain a great understanding of how the printing and binding process works. I don't think there is any better way to grasp a concept other than jumping right in. Click the images for a larger view.
AdamShort.com is an internet marketing blog geared toward helping people find and market to niche markets online. After designing the logo, I moved onto the website design. Working with a small team of developers, I created this fully responsive design which features a flowing blogpost layout, a strong opt-in area in the sidebar, and prominent social sharing to maximize exposure.

Sokratees.com is a niche t-shirt business that creates and sells t-shirts using Facebook marketing. They needed a brand and website built from the ground up, so that's just what I did. The name is a play off the ancient philosopher Socrates, so his likeness inspired the bold logo icon. It was important that the site be fully responsive, as a large number of customers access the site from mobile devices. I worked with a developer to bring the finished design to life.

The company was in need a fresh face, and a website to go with it. I started with the logo, which needed to look more professional, but also approachable. The company produces eBooks and other online content, so I decided to go with a modern interlinked shape that forms the letters 'Y' and 'B'.
The next thing I needed to tackle was the website, as they didn't yet have one of their own. I created a clean, modern layout to feature the office environment and team members, as the main goal of the website is to give potential employees a peek into the atmosphere of the company.
I shot all the photos of the office to be used in the site design.

The whole shabang!
Freelance Writing Riches was an all-inclusive project, from the book cover to the logo design. I used every bit of my skills for this one. I shot the photos used throughout this project, as well as designed the website and other collateral such as CDs, DVDs, reports, and social media content. Here you can see examples of a few of the different aspects. Click the images for a larger view.
