DMSC Portfolio: Posters and Journal Entries

Before I was assigned any creative work, I made this BOOGAT poster. I showed my co-workers and they all thought it was pretty neat. So, I started to get assigned posters. You can tell the spacing and typography is a mess, but the photo of BOOGAT and the background worked nicely.

The first poster I got assigned was the Timmy Williams stand-up show.

DMSC has a hard time communicating all of their monthly events to patrons, so I made a monthly poster with all of their events.

The poster I made highlighting the Halloween-themed events we had was probably my favorite poster I made. Spending the day brainstorming with my boss, Bethany Arganbright, about what events we could have and the event series name, “Fright Fest” was one of the best days during my internship.

With Copywrite and Coolzey’s permission, I took some of the assets from their tour poster and made one for the show at DMSC.

The Joshua James/MAIDS poster I made was never published because James’ manager ended up getting us a tour poster after all just as I finished it.

The last poster I made was for the Benjamin Cartel show. It was simple but I found it the most aesthetically pleasing. Mickey Davis, our program manager, loved it and wants to use it as a template for other singer-songwriter shows.

Greenlee School of Journalism’s Internship Coordinator Juli Probasco-Sowers made it apparent that keeping a solid journal was very important to catalog your work and see your progression as your internship moved along.
