He wanted something that was text only with a wide, short font. I really love how it turned out! If you’re in the Salt Lake Valley and are in need of a great massage therapist, you can schedule an appointment with Eliott at so-massage.square.site

Congratulations on your new logo and new business, Eliott!”

“I storyboarded and helped guide the final look and feel of my company’s brand anthem video.”

Matt Page

“Work in progress.”

“New Future Day Saints ashcan will debut at Sunstone Symposium next month. I’m currently working on volume 3 (The New Arrivals) and it will come out next year. This zine will be a sneak peek as to what’s to come.

Ashcan is a term from back in the day for a cheap, small, usually black and white comic they would print to establish a trademark for upcoming titles. In the 80s and 90s, they started releasing ashcan comics as prototypes and for promotional use. They became collectors items.

This will be the second Future Day Saints ashcan I will be releasing. The first was released last year as part of bundles with my second FDS volume. My ashcans contain sketches and process art. It’s basically a zine with background art from the book.”




Katrina Parkinson

“Katrina here! Behold, my biggest oil painting yet. Hudson and I built this 3ft X 4ft custom canvas ourselves. I have been spending lots of time painting hands lately. Hopefully I will keep better! This original will be up for sale on our website shortly. We will also have art print options available. I will be doing a varnishing video for this price soon as well now that it is dry.”

Thanks again to Gallery on 28 for putting on this show!”

“Some days it feels like we are just desperately reaching for hope.”

Davin Abegg

“It’s been a while since I’ve shared my art on here. I’m still drawing a lot, in fact I have something really cool cooking up I’m excited to share soon. But for the meantime. Here’s a couple recent favorites from each of my art pages: @swoodydraw and @idrawrandomfollowers




Derek Ballard

Clark Stewart Radlander’s wonderful Showerhead Cheatsheet poem and performance inspired Brighton Carper Ballard and I to make it into zine format. It is a 24 page coil bound, 2 color risograph printed zine. I can’t wait for you all to read it and see Brighton’s fantastic illustrations.

The release show will be at our Riso Geist studio downtown and feature 2 readings by clark! himself. One at 7PM and the other at 9PM. Both will have different opening acts.

Zines will be available for purchase at the event. Any unsold zines will then be available at Gridzine Fest the following weekend. These are very limited, so snag one while you can.”




Brighton Carper Ballard

https://brightoncarperballard.com/LEER/

“Hello, I have worked with an incredible team of people to create LEER, a recorded table reading of the feature-length screenplay I wrote last year. Derek Ballard did some killer production design, Scott Wasilewski elevated everything to beyond next level with music and background foley, and Wesley Walter Johnson engineered, mixed, and mastered it.

This is something I’m extremely proud of, and even happier to share with the world now that it’s complete. Please give LEER a listen, and share it around if you like it, so I can get Seth Rogen to be in it!” 🙏

Matt Page

“Here’s a little something I’ve been working on to debut at Sunstone this summer… a new Ashcan comic zine thing with process art, concept designs, and a four page preview of the next book. This will have to hold everyone over until the book comes out next year.

There will be other new and exciting FDS products at Sunstone too but I still have about three months* to get those ready.

*Assuming they do it at the end of July like they usually do.”

“Drawing I did last night as part of an inside joke with my coworkers.”

“I drew our family this morning at church.”




Katrina Parkinson

“The Star. Tarot painting of the day. It brings renewed hope and faith and a sense that you are truly blessed by the universe at this time.”

“The Ace of Cups. This card shows a chalice overflowing with five streams of water that represent your emotions and intuition flowing from you. This card may show up at the beginning of a new relationship whether it be romantic or a friend or family connection.”

“Katrina here. I started a new painting last night, second in my Ukrainian series (pictures of the first coming later). Here is what my sketch looked like before I started toning my canvas. My heart has been heavy for the Ukrainian people as they have been driven from their homes in the wake of the destruction of war. People have lost their lives and left mourning loved ones behind. As an artists when you feel helpless and can’t do anything else, you make art. This painting will depict hungry Ukrainian refugees reaching for bread that is being distributed. I am working from a photo that was in the New York Times newspaper, it’s an image that has touched my heart. I will be selling prints and possibly even the original painting later this month at @galleryon28 at their fundraiser for Ukraine. All profits will be donated to a Ukrainian relief organization. I will post more information on the event soon. ” #galleryon28 #ukraine #ukrainefundraiser #war #ukrainianwar #refugees #painting #oilpainting #paintingforacause #sarrowful #artistsoninstagram




Stephanie Smith

“I still remember as I was planning my wedding (10 years ago!) how painful it was to spend so much money on the little things, that are inevitably going to be thrown in the garbage anyway (napkins, stationary, envelopes, flowers, etc.)” 😭

“Every time I create and shoot a flat lay or detail on my couples’ wedding day, I take this into consideration. I strive to capture every intention meant…and every penny spent! (am I right?)”

“If you too are worried about how you are going to preserve these moments and memories, I’ve got this! I dream of these details!” 😍

2022 AIGA Student Portfolio Review

Saturday, April 16, 2022
Entrata / Lehi, Utah

FROM AIGA SLC:

After two years of online reviews, AIGA was excited to allow guests from all over Utah to come together for this event once again to network and see all the up-and-coming talent our state has to offer. For the students, this was a unique opportunity to receive face-to-face feedback about their portfolios and gain valuable advice, insight, and industry information from some of the top creative professionals in the local design community.

Jeri Colvin’s portfolio.

“Really happy how this cover art turned out. Yes, I designed it. Yes, that’s my old van on fire. Yes, the song is available in all streaming services. Yes, it’s called Night Drive by The Fever Drift. Yes, I’m in that band. Yes, we’re playing our first show this Sunday at Quarters in SLC. Any further questions?”

“I made this for work, and I love it! Incidentally, that seat cover was bright red originally. I’m very proud that I had the skill to change it to another color we offer in the same material. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!”




Cassidy Demkov

“I’m counting down the days to being able to being able to work out in my garden.”

“The Son de Flor Spring/Summer collection released today and it is just beautiful. My Garden Floral print is featured on a few different styles of dresses and a shawl. A link to the collection is in the comments if you’d like to see the entire collection.”

“Honey the corgi is ready for spring in my The Foggy Dog daffodil print.”




Saul Flores

“A date with THE STARS.”




Amber Giles

“Happy Spring!🌸🐝

I have been thinking about the first day of spring today and what it represents. New growth, new beginnings, starting fresh and moving forward.

Flowers don’t automatically pop out of the ground. They have to go from their seeds/bulbs, struggle to push through layers and layers of dirt making sure they are getting the nutrients they need from the soil and moisture in the ground around them. Even when they reach the surface, there is still growing to be done before the flowers can bloom with their bright, vibrant colors.

If you feel you are in the midst of what seems to be endless, perpetual struggles in any or all areas of life, take courage. As this new season of the year begins, I hope you can remember that even flowers take time to bloom. There may be struggles to get there, but the end result is always worth it. So keep working. Keep going. Even if it is just one inch at a time. This season of struggle will pass and will lead you to some beautiful things in life.” ❤️🌷🌹🌺🌸🌼🌻

“Disconnect from the constantly moving, ever busy world around you to reconnect with who you really are.”

“It’s okay to take a step back when you are feeling overwhelmed with everything going on around you. We are constantly bombarded with podcasts, music, streaming services, social media, ads, games… We are not robots and need time to rest and recharge.”

“Closing off outside sources of constant noise and taking time to sit, be still and listen to the thoughts that move through my head has been a huge help in starting to reconnect with who I am. I still have a way to go but finding time to be still has been very beneficial. How do you disconnect from the world to reconnect with yourself?”




Matt Page

“Here is one of the projects I worked on at the real estate business I worked for. They were trying to get investors to invest in the two buildings marked in red. The POV is looking west onto downtown Salt Lake City. The story is that the four blocks east of State Street and south of 100 South are growing and what we think of as “hot downtown property” will soon include those four blocks.

So in order to help illustrate it, I wanted to show the skyline, with all the big existing buildings in the background and the blocks we’re focusing on in the foreground.

The top is what it looked like 5 years ago, the middle is what it looks like now (the green buildings are new) and the bottom is what it will look like in 5 years (the yellow buildings are planned).”

“My muse.”




Katrina Parkinson

“Katrina here! Fresh in our online store today. I’ve been getting back into stamp carving and block printing. I recently just taught a class for the Tooele County Arts Guild on stamp carving and it was a blast. Each print turns out slightly different depending on how the ink transfers to the paper so each piece is unique! Each print comes with its print date and artist signature. Comes in 5X7, you can purchase yours here: https://www.blackrabbitstudios.net/

“Friends & family, It’s been a long time coming, but @drinkbutter recently launched its first solo collection and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. The ‘Butter Ball’, ‘Butter Dog’, ‘Dog with the Butter’, and ‘ButterTini’ Anorak jackets were created by yours truly and are available at drink-butter.com.

What started as a platform to post our films, edits, and IG cuts, quickly evolved into a place where skiers from all over the state, nation, and world have gradually come together over one shared interest — butter. Some of these skiers I’ve looked up to for years, some have just recently started to inspire me, and there will be plenty more down the line. 

The whole point behind the butter is to spread love within the free-skiing community.

Specifically, to build up underdog skiers, crews, and brands that are beneficial for the culture, while also paying respect to those who paved the way for our sport. With the revenue from these designs, I plan to support other phenomenal people and projects within our community.

While it is always a great feeling to stomp a backflip, it’s even more special to encourage a friend to do their first. Here is to paying it forward and building up the next generation of skiers. 🍸

From Spoke Art:

“Who else is ready for Hocus Pocus 2? While we wait until October to see it, we’ll be calling on the Sanderson sisters with artist Brighton Ballard’s ‘Hocus Pocus’ tarot card set.”

“Conjure this set and more tarot cards from Brighton on our site here: https://spoke-art.com/collections/pop-culture-prints




Ryan Bangerter

“Another cute dino drawing for you to enjoy. Parasaurolophus is his name. Try saying that 3 times fast. 😆 Also, did you know that butterflies existed during the age of the dinosaurs? I sure didn’t.”

“It’s time for another #EmyandHerald character lineup. This is Heather, Emy’s fellow classmate. Like all good antagonists, Heather believes she is the protagonist of this story. Although Heather is not the most popular girl in her grade, she does have her loyal group of friends. She spends her days “protecting” everyone from Emy by making her the social pariah of the school.”




Cassidy Demkov

“Today’s sketch.”

Amber Giles

“So excited to be part of this show!” ☺️🩰 And Amber designs the promotional pieces!




Kim Jeppson

“I LOVE Alice in Wonderland. Look at the adventures she had because of her curiosity! It’s so easy to forget that there is so much to experience and learn if we just wonder for a minute and be open to the answer. I’ve been working on a couple of designs around Alice and Wonderland, just for fun, and this is one that I finished and uploaded to my Redbubble shop. Stay Curious!”

Sam Loertscher

“ADA compliance door plaques for corporate center.”




Matt Page

“Some sketches of characters from my #FutureDaySaints graphic novel series. I’ve been working on book three and have one chapter completed so far. About 25 pages in the can. It should come out some time next year.”




Hudson Parkinson

“Hey all! Please check out Hudson Parkinson’s latest animated digital painting on our youtube page. It’s a stunner!”




Emily Paulson

“Had the pleasure of working with Adam & Monica on designing their branding for Nomadic Photo Ark. check out their beautiful work!”




Peterson Timothy

“This little mockup made it into @logolounge Book 13. Part of a fictional brand exploration awhile back.⁣”

“Final selection for the @logolounge Book 13. Sometimes concepts don’t get selected by the client. This little mockup was left on the cutting room floor. Simple monogram mockup as part of a bigger brand rollout for a apparel/affirmation brand.”

“Another one for the @logolounge Book 13. This little guy was part of a bigger project centered around luchadors.⁣”
