Game Design

This bowling game was one of several games designed for Intel Corporation's Sales & Marketing University and embedded into Web-based course. After a short intro the game interface loads and invites the user to choose the right answer to bowl. If a right answer is chosen, the user gets a "Strike" and points earned are displayed. If user gets the wrong answer they receive a variety of gutterballs, or a "Spare". Sound effects and music are included. The course was rated one of the very top courses by the end users.

Graphic Design - Wedding Invitations

This is an example of a wedding invitations we designed for a couple that held their wedding in Hawaii. A red hibiscus was the desired motif which was printed on 80 # white cover stock. The invitation was backed by handmade mulberry paper with hand torn edges. A woven simonay envelope was used to enclose the invitation and RSVP card, and wrapped in an irredescent sheer green ribbon. The invitation was mailed out in an ivory envelope and sealed with a label with the hibiscus motif.
