A couple of projects today that I finished a few months back. Both my sister and sister-in-law were married 2 weeks apart in March, and I designed a shower invitation for my sister-in-law (above) and the wedding invite for my sister (below). The wedding invitation uses one of those Envelopments pocket envelopes and I had the shower invite printed on a thick woven, linen paper. Enjoy!
I’ve been working on a historic project that required recreating a ton of vintage University logos (mostly athletics) that’s been a lot of fun; so I decided to share. Some of these were created by myself and some by Mike Mahle. Please note that all dates are approximate. We didn’t begin regulating identity usage until the early ’90s, so it’s difficult to say with any certainty when a majority of these were created and died out. Some even went in and out of use frequently. And some, like the Cubist rendition of the Redbird from the ’70s, were just a flat-out awful idea. Some of these suckers were tricky to remake, so enjoy!

I just launched a new portfolio site at JFarrellStudio.com. Go check it out!
This is a project I’ve been meaning to start for some time and I’m glad it’s finally done. Two JQuery plugins are used for the site function: Quicksand, which indexes and runs the filterable categories and creates the sliding effect of the images when a different category is selected, and Fancybox for the pop-up image galleries.
There are still a few thumbnail images I would like to change, and two projects that I’ve yet to upload images of, but I just wanted to get this sucker online for now. Enjoy!
