3D Artist
2012 - 2012
The objective for this project was to create a 3D model of business logo through Chase/Michael Meeting & Event Services. The logo was for a company called Evanta and I received a 2D graphic of their logo and was tasked to 3D model, texture, animate, and render the logo in HD. Two final renders were completed, one with a specific designed background and the other with a green background allowing it to be chroma keyed out to anything else they may later want.

They have never had a brochure or pamphlet before and were looking create something that allowed people to see all the available work they offer and could easily be mailed or handed out. In the first week of passing out and mailing brochures they picked up a job that was billed out at over $18,000 dollars. Brochure was created in Photoshop and the images were provided by Stokes Electric.
Christine L. Metcalf - President of Onalaska Cente
Graphic Designer
2012 - 2012
The objective for this project was to create a business brochure for the company BookKeeping Express. There are many branches of this business across the nation but the Onalaska, WI branch was looking to create a more localized brochure that was more personal with brighter colors from their company logo. I created this brochure in Photoshop and used images provided and that I took of actual employees of this branch and local locations. Giving the brochure a more local and less big corporate style that they were looking for.
