So it’s been a month since my last posting. Sorry about that!
College + Applying for jobs + Running a club + Working 35 hours a week = One tired person!
One of the main things I’ve been working on lately is a 5K run for my organization. This 5K was created to raise money for a scholarship that we are giving to a student coming into the Communication Department at Pittsburg State University. To check out more about the event, head on over to psuprad5k.com.
There have been several logos, posters, flyers, tickets, and t-shirts that have been created for this event. Some of the work is my own, and some of it is the work of Stephanie Sheldon.
This is the logo design that I created for the event. I wanted to incorporate our club’s colors into the design. I had come up with two different logos for the 5K and this is the one that won when the club voted.
This is the logo that I created for the Communicator of Tomorrow scholarship (which is the scholarship that we will be giving away). I went with the Pittsburg State University colors on this and created the word bubble to symbolize “communication.”
Below is the poster design that I created to play off of the logo design. I didn’t want to overuse the logo (since there is so much wording on it) so I decided to not place the logo on the poster. I have no idea what made me design at an angle… but I thought it made the poster more interesting to look at.
Next are the t-shirts. My favorite. They’re simple, yet drawing to the eye.
I created two different ones. The volunteers on the day of the event will wear the red shirts and the runners will receive the white shirts with their registration.
Next came the Pancake Feed designs. Every year, PRAD hosts an All-You-Can-Eat pancake feed at Applebees in Pittsburg. This year, we decided to have it after the race. I asked Stephanie to come up with the poster design for the event. I love the design that she came up with so I played off the style to create the tickets to go with the poster. A big thanks to Stephanie for her creativity!
That’s all the design for now!
