Last year I worked on a project designing a full website layout, presentations and advertising. I worked on this for a month straight, every day from 9 to 5, sometimes even 11pm at night. Yet, to this day, I’ve still not been paid for all this work. I figure now is the best time to display what I’m capable of in a commercial area.
All advertisements, logos, branding and images are used as prototype design, all rights are to their respective owners. Name has obviously been changed, however all design belongs to me. Photographs sourced from Flickr & Google Images.

Each page was created by designing web assets first, this allowed me to simply drag and drop each asset to each page in rewards for myself to easily edit the content around the layout, very similar to CSS in web design. As shown in the image below.
Each asset, created in PS first, saved as a template to design inside the layout of each page as shown on the right.
Despite having very poor business relationship and not getting paid for the month of work provided, I feel this is one of my strongest designs to date and what I am capable of in various areas of design.
