I recently had the fun opportunity to help design a trade show booth in Las Vegas (layout and graphics) for an up and coming, super cool jewelry designer Trixy Starr. Then I went to Vegas with her… oh well, what can I say, work work work ;))
As much as layout of that Vegas show’s booth goes, 3 white walls without option to use nails is kind of a MacGyver challenge - right up my alley! Since Trixy’s jewelry is overwhelmingly colorful we kept the booth clean and simple, leaving the default white walls and shelving and displaying the necklaces in black and white frames. But for a splash of coolness I brought in a fluffy carpet in the brightest yellow and a storage pouf in sparkling purple! It was a blast to hear complements on the carpet idea. YAY!
For branding I designed 2 banners 3×3 feet with Trixy’s logo and message.
I’ve designed huge graphics for custom booths for serious companies before, but this was more of a “DIY” experience due to the specific venue setup, and I must say: there is nothing more fun than DIY! Thank you MacGyver.
Do you feel like your 2011 was not as satisfying as you expected it to be? Did you do everything in your power to achieve what you wanted? In any case smart words of healthy motivation can never hurt.
I love reading J Michael Dolan’s blog and I want to share with you his final post for 2011:
Whether Christmas or Chanukah or [place here..] is your thing, I hope everyone is having wonderful holiday season and I want to wish you all a fantastic and exciting New Year!!
May 2012 be peaceful, healthy, joyful and eye opening for all of us humans ;)
This time the entire series of 7 posters was [super quickly] designed to illustrate Edeyo’s efforts. They were displayed at Edeyo’s annual fundraiser in the end of June in New York. Hosted by Michelle Rodriguez and filled with stars including John Legend, the Foundation’s 3rd anniversary fundraiser at The Bowery Hotel was named by US Magazine “Legendary night out” ;) Lucky my posters to witness the evening from the walls!
Wherever you are in the world and however you spend this time of year, I wish you all fantastic holidays and a great 2010 filled with many breath-taking moments, tsunamis of creativity, love, peace and friendships!
