Some projects for SBD while I was still there.

Image
Here I'll add some images and information about some projects I worked on while at SBD.

Aside from working with their webpage, optimization and programming I was part of several other projects that varied in difficulty and proved challenging either because of the time they needed to be completed on or due to some complexity that added to the usually short time frame made them rather difficult.

Political promotional material concepts and design:


This is one of many projects that required me to work on political campaign graphic design. The challenge here mainly being that I'm a completely apolitical person and it tends to go against my nature to actually help such efforts. My professionalism and my conscience were constantly at odds on these projects because as a professional I like to make quality products that take the message and gets it to the people however as a person I am completely against political campaigns and how they are aimed at manipulating the ideals and minds of…

New webpage for SBD

Image
I recently switched working places and re-joined a company I've known for over 10 years. I've been harrasing them to make a new webpage since their old one was quite outdated. After joining them again and a few projects we finally had some time to work on the page design. Here's a sample image of the change. On the left you can see the previous incarnation of the page. An outdated design with hard to update methods and rough graphics. The new one is using wordpress as a CMS and has a very flexible base template we purchased called Affinity. Of course being who and how I am I couldn't just leave the default styles alone so I messed with the whole colors, the backgrounds, generated tons of images and added a little more pizzazz with the help of animate.css so that the page content is not static and boring but responsive and dynamic. I will be tweaking the thing a lot more in the next few days by adding a map to the contact area and probably a form for contacting us inste…

Team Docusign Training

Image
This is a short form training I gave to a small group of teammates that are going to be working with the Docusign service we use at our institution. The training was quick and to the point and it focused on how to upload, edit and send documents using the platform. I also added some best practices and at the end I stayed with the managers so to explain and Identify the different challenges they will be facing when sharing the service among some related departments that will be providing service to our students.

As to why am I dressed preety... well I take pride in giving a good training and it helps give the message that this is serious business and it merits dressing-up for it. Plus I make this look good :)

Some numbers taken from the evaluation charts. I do wish some of the people that couldn't come did come... most of them really needed it.
Oh well... it probably means I'll have to eventually give another one.

9th SUAGM congress conference at Caribe Hilton

Image
Last Saturday, I was blessed to be able to participate in this congress. I learned a lot when working for SUAGM, and it’s only fair to give back some of that knowledge to the educational community, even if I work for a competitor University, the main goal is to educate. I also had the chance to share some information about Copyrights in the instructional and graphic design field.

My participation was focused on the US Copyrights and its implication on course graphic design. It included some examples, a simple plea to the conscience of the educators to properly ask for permission to use content, and an explanation on how to obtain the proper licenses to enrich their courses without putting themselves or their institutions in legal jeopardy. All in all, it was a great experience! I was able to be part of a great team of professionals each with their own expertise and background in the field. My background flows along the lines of my own research as a designer, artist and educator: ensu…

Google and the final frontier:

Image
Space, the final frontier... these are the goals of a great company, to seek out new ways to do your computing, to seek out new ways for our civilization to boldly go wherever they want to go.
Or, something like that...

Google has been helping users cast out the limitations of computers and porting most of the data and programs to the "cloud". Finding new freedom and new ways to interact while not worrying that the computer will be afflicted by lack of space since the important documents and files will be hosted, accessible and available in any and all devices capable of accessing the internet.

Before They had added the Notebook(now unsupported though I still use it to write my stuff), The Google Docs, along with their whole "Office Like" program set which adds extra capabilities like multiple sharing, turning the documents into web pages directly and multiple "working" on the same document that lets teams work on concepts and projects.

They developed the…

Miami Florida NUC-Online Promotions

Image
I made the design for the promotions now running in Miami FL.
So far they look very nice and the printers made a great job with the matching of the design and the colors. I wish the picture sent to me was better lit or from a few more angles though hahah... oh well I know how it's supposed to look like. Now if I could get my hands on one of the actual brochures for my portfolio it would be awesome. :)
Here are some of the Banners Used for the FL promotions.

This was used on some Nice T-shirts.
