My Newsletter is a project meant to showcase the work of Southwest Airlines for their committed public and loyal customers. It is also strategically designed to highlight the good work of the company for the purpose of integrity and high morals towards their own employees. Here is a full blog post describing the commercial project, including the full, extended 4 page newsletter of the front page below.
SELECTING A CLIENT
I wish there was an option to select your own client in the professional setting. Fortunately, for multiple class projects, we had the option to do just that. This blog post is an in-detail process of my selection, The Genesis Women’s Shelter in Dallas. The final project was to create a business card and letterhead designed for the client, so this process gives background to my style and my method.
To create the best possible product for my client, I first created an outline of my project. In my blog post, I stated a rough draft of what I expect out of my outcome that gave me a guideline to my creative process, and why my intentions are what they are. Using the mood board below and the competitor analysis above, I created a design strategy for a business card and letterhead for my client, the Genesis Women’s Shelter in Dallas.
For a class project, we were instructed to better understand our client by doing background research. This included a competitor analysis. Using the social media site, Pinterest, we dug into a visual inspection of our competitors and our client’s most attractive qualities when it came to their image. The ultimate goal was to design a business card and letterhead with our client in mind. This visual better helped us grasp the method of our client and competitors, and what strategy was used in implementing their mission into design. Below is the visual of my competitor analysis, but you can find the full blog post here.
The following class project was a brief trial and error run at InDesign. The assignment was meant to encompass our basic instinct and first grasp at the program. We were displayed the simple face of a newsletter for “CANDY” and meant to replicate that using our own grasp of InDesign. It was the epitome of a ROUGH. START. but no worries– I have improved since!
