“Personal Branding” Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, April 2017
This is the updated logo for my brand. The idea was to make the logo more modernized and simplistic. I played around with the letterforms of my initials “m” and “d” to create one geometic icon. The entire logo is clean but serves its purpose using one bold color.
My eLearning Hub
“My eLearning Lab Web Banners”, Photoshop/Illustrator, Sept 9, 2015
My newest client wanted me to create four banners for her website: http://www.myelearninghub.com. The first banner is for users to join the marketplace. I made sure the elements matched the style of the website using blues, greens, and whites. The second banner is for users to shop for content such as, textbooks and supplies. I made sure this was directed to the community of people or a gathering of people. The third banner is simply for users to shop for eBooks. I used green and yellowish orange to attract users. The final banner is to become a partner. I kept it simple with little to no color so users can easily click and go to the next screen. For the typeface, I used Tahoma font.
“DJ Naeemk Logo”, Adobe Illustrator/Adobe Photoshop, July 25, 2014
The idea is clean and simple. The typography used is ITC Avant Garde but modified. I have created a half letter “D”. Both the D and the J are curved. The “N” and the “A” are connected. I erased the middle stem to the letter “A” to match the aesthetics of the letter “D”. I also created a circular logo combining the letters “N” and “K”.

Indie Game Magazine, April 2014 Issue
The Indie Game Magazine, April 2014, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign
I was offered a project to help with the design of The Indie Game Magazine. The owner is Chris Newton. It is a combination of ideas to formulate a game magazine for gamers and other readers. Imagery and legibility are the top key features. There is a combination of blues, orange, and purples for the different sections of the magazine. The content is placed on a white background for easy readability and viewing.
Objective: To design an 80 page book using strong concept and visual language system. Approach: My concept is The Mechanical Beauty of Steampunk. I wanted to focus on giving the design a non-modern look, but still remaining true to the ideal todays world of design and minimalism. I purposefully wanted to stay away from the obvious and showing too many gears and machinery throughout the booklet. Instead, I wanted to focus on intricate details and ornamentation using detailed and elegant imagery to present what Steampunk is.
(AAU-graduate) ------------ This project is for GR 601 Type Systems class in the Graphic Design Graduate School of Academy of Art University. This project is simply for learning how to typeset numerous amounts of text. Some elements in this work may use purchased photos and Internet image resources. The copyright of those elements belongs to the original authors, and are credited. Credits page is added at the end of the booklet.
