The New Basics

For my latest Modern Yardage Collection, I created a series of designs that are the 'new basics.' Something that goes beyond stripes and dots, but retains the usefulness of a classic basic. Get them now at Modern Yardage!

Cauliflower Crust Pizza

This pizza should come with a warning.
Prepare only if you're ready to inhale like a beast.
Put your cozy pants on, you'll need the room.

For mine, I improvised with the toppings and just threw together what I had left in the fridge. It turned out just fine. They mention that it takes time and is messy to make. I found that it's always messy cooking with cauliflower, but didn't think it was that time consuming. I might just be used to cooking like this now... I grated the cauliflower by hand and it was easy to do. The hardest part was waiting for the steamed cauliflower to cool. But, I put on a JRE podcast and that always helps pass the time.

Web Design

This first project is from a web proposal I created last year for a local business. Their site is cluttered and confusing. I tossed out all the junk and presented them with a design that features their product in a clean and clear visual display. 

My design:

 Their current website:

The web banner:

This next project was for fun and is not associated with the site at all. I just knew I could make it look better. CafeAstrology has a TON of content, so the first thing I did was organize all of it into a handful of menu items. From there I experimented with the wire-framing. After that was settled, I plugged in the graphic elements.

Lately, I've been watching a lot of female MMA fighter training videos and fight videos. They're really inspiring. I don't think I'll ever want to fight MMA but, I love training martial arts. I've been in Krav for over a year now and spend about 8-10 hours a week fighting. After another year I'd like to go to Thailand and spend a few months learning Muay Thai.
