I wanted to see how close I could get to recreating the Stranger Things logo within 20 minutes of time. I did the work in Adobe Illustrator and it was actually somewhat easy to get it relatively close in design. Love the show, I recommend to watch if you haven’t!Read More »

It’s been a little while since I have done a real estate mailer but I think this turned out pretty nice. She ended up sending it to around 4,000 of her clients. She wanted to use the same styled image on her facebook account so I created the landscape image for that application.
I have been working with Jacqui for quite some time now getting her website and marketing materials setup for her massage business! She is finally accepting clients and well on her way to being one of the best massage therapists in Chicago! If you need that healing touch, book an appointment with her! Her site runs off wordpress, and I personally host it for her.Read More »
I’ve been producing websites for a company called AttorneySync as an independent contractor. Websites are run on WordPress using a predetermined template that we then customize for each law firm. Good work and good people to work for!Read More »
Now that I am updating this I would love to make a quick post about the experience I had teaching the youth during the summer of 2016. I worked for a company called The Digital Media Academy and taught a class of 11-13 year olds 3D modeling/printing. The kids designed models, printed them, redesigned, and reprinted their engineered products. Amazing opportunity and I had an awesome time with the kids. They are definitely the future!Read More »
It has been a pleasure working with Briana Kline on rebranding her small business coming in with a redesigned logo, business cards, brochure, and website! Briana is based in the South Loop of Chicago and offers Holistic Lifestyle Coaching along with Pilates, Yoga, and Gyrotonic® classes. Her website was previously based in Joomla and I finally convinced her to go the WordPress route and do a redesign.
Everything came out for a fairly tight budget and she is already beginning to see positive changes!Read More »
I guess you could say I am obsessed at this point. Ever since I got my first 3D printer a few weeks ago, it has been running non-stop. I really enjoy making models and immediately printing them out. I have recently been doing prints for an architect/engineer/sculptor that I worked with for years. He is a natural stone sculptor that recently got into making casts of bronze and other materials. They always have odd shapes so they really aren’t the easiest things to print. (ie heat creep.) but I really enjoy doing it. I just picked up some ‘wood’ filament and will make sure to post some pictures of things I have printed in wood.

It has been a long time coming, but I finally bit the bullet and purchased a 3D printer. I have always thought 3D printers were some of the coolest technology out on the market, and to finally be able to try it out myself is almost a dream come true. I picked up a PowerSpec Pro which is MicroCenter’s generic model, which features dual extruders along with an LCD/firmware that is somewhat similar to a MakerBot. I must say that I have been pleasantly surprised so far. It definitely does take some tweaking to get the settings right for your particular application, but once dialed in this printer actually does perform quite well. My first decent print ended up being a Quake logo. 😀 Check it out!Read More »
Well I am probably way behind the 8ball when it comes to Etsy, but I have officially opened up my own little shop. I plan to provide vector works for both personal and commercial use. My first submission is a set of 12 different vector frames and borders. They are flat images that you can add your text to, print out, and have a decent looking sign, invitation, etc.
You can visit my shop here! https://www.etsy.com/shop/GfxEssentials
