Marvel Seamless Pattern Background

Here’s a seamless Marvel background I created for my portfolio. Turned out more childish looking than I expected. But depending on the use, this wallpaper might better fit your needs.

One random tangent, but I’m impressed by the end result. Took a good bit of time to perfect it, but it’s pretty cool if I can say so myself.

The designs imitate the icons created by Ruben Ferlo. Some are revised copies of Ruben’s, a few others are personally created. Note, that silver character is Antman. Figured that might be confusing trying to ID if it’s Antman or Ultron lol.

Thanks and hope you enjoy!

Design365 – Dec 1

FAILED!!!

My hopes and goals to finish the Don Norman book by the end of November tanked! I definitely missed it due to inadequate time blocking and the onslaught of finals and projects. I know they’re just excuses, but hey? Ish happens and the world keeps spinning. So “Emotional Design” will stay on the ‘to read’ list and I’ll continue trucking.

Albeit, I haven’t dedicated time to do these design tasks daily, I am learning a bunch more about design through my schoolwork and projects. I can see noticeable improvements on the skill I have now versus what I came into grad school with.

Not gonna fret too much over spilled milk. Gonna keep my head down and keep plowing on all the things I have laid out in front of me.

365 Days of Design

First time starting a blog and with a year long challenge.

I’m challenging myself to learn more about design through hands on experience. So following the lead of others who challenged themselves to learn new skills over a year.

Started on Thursday, October 9, so (hopefully) I’ll be making a post a day about my progress.

Plan is to exercise one part of design techniques daily for 12 months. In order to make the most of the time and not be scattered everywhere in design, I’ll focus each month on a particular trait.

Starting off with Emotional October by reading Don Norman’s Emotional Design book and getting a deeper touch into my emotions and various products. Will log daily activity and any notable progress or incidences.
