What I’ve been working on (aka: studio doodles)

I know I should update my portfolio soon…but in the meantime. Here’s what I’ve been up to.

01. (Pictured above)  #Catstuckintree. Is a little doodle that started out as a design test (the cat, tree, ladder) and then I just had to add onto it for fun.

02. Overview graphics for a business course (ReWork).

03. Part of a page for a kit I put together for ReWork as I’ve complete some of their marketing collateral. It’s been really fun working with in their brand style and and also getting to add new elements, like in this page.

04. Art direction for Art of Winter. Working closely with my friend and designer, Shantana Judkins, on this project. She presented me with a lot of creative ideas but wasn’t sure how to put all of them together and create something for the event that wasn’t over-the-top snowboarder-y. I took her ideas and made this mock-up for a poster choosing the colors, typography, and design elements. She used this as a “brand guide” to create the rest of the elements and collateral for the event—and she did an absolutely spectacular job!

Studio Jacklynn Pham moves to NYC!

Thursday, January 31st I bought a ticket to New York and on Tuesday February 5th, I was here! Thought I should make the official announcement.

I mean, just look where I’m working today!

I was ready for a move, raring for a change, and so I made one. I can’t say how long I’ll be here I only know that so far I really, really like it.

Oh, and that I’m ready to meet some new people!

1011 Tapes CD Packaging

I worked with Adrian Molina to design the cover for a benefit CD for the flobots.org to raise money for the Youth Media Studio. Another really fun project that I was tickled to be a part of.

This is the design they ended up choosing which features a sketch of the proposed YMS with some artistic smudges in the YMS colors. The really loved it and it was exactly the style they were looking for.

My first version of of the CD cover I have to admit is less grounded by the YMS project, but I have to admit I really enjoyed making it and was super pleased with how it turned out. It was more like a creative exercise. Since I didn’t know what bands would be included on the disk, only that they would all be Colorado-based, I wanted to design a cover that would be sharp enough to appeal to a variety of audiences and genres. Whether I did it, is up to you to decide:

New blog: Jack Does Good

Very excited to release my new blog! I decided that, not only did my old blog need a new design, but also a new purpose. I found that I was talking more and more about design/professional events I was attending and or things I’ve learned I am inspired by so wanted to rework my blog. I believe it’s now easier to find the content you’re looking for: design, learning, recipes, media inspiration, or what’s going on in my life (heaven forbid you’re interested in that!).

I also wanted to separate my blog from my name a bit more since I consider it a more person creative exercise. I chose the name because I want to do good well. I think it speaks to me do-gooder nature and dedication to projects, all with a wink to my English major.

Let me know what you think!
