This week’s deliverables include:
1. A leave behind rough draft. Since most of my work is video, I figured it would be good to include a DVD demo reel in my leave behind. Although I considered printing up a mini portfolio, screenshots of videos don’t seem very appealing to me. A thumb drive would have been my first choice, but seeing as they’re about $15 each, a leave behind featuring a DVD seemed a much better alternative. The DVD will include samples of my video, web, and photo work. Additionally, the leave behind will contain a business card. I’ve seen leave behinds similar to the one I’ve made, but I don’t know where to get mine printed and die cut to fit the card and DVD… that’s why I just printed it on regular paper and cut it my self. The final product will be printed properly, though.
My printer started giving me trouble today, so the colors on the DVD and business card came out wrong – once I get the printer fixed I’ll reprint so that the colors on the DVD and business card match those on the leave behind – orange and grey.
2. Business cards. So far, I’ve got two main designs that I’ve been working with: a vertical card and a horizontal one. Regardless of what the front looks like, I’m pretty sure I’ll print a photo across the entire back of the card. To facilitate this, I’ll have to get my cards printed on semi-gloss card stock paper. Below is the front of the card and a few photos I’m considering using on the back of the card. (The grey border on this card is just the illustrator window background – it won’t show up when the cards are printed.)

3. A resume final draft. Here’s a digital copy. I’m going to get this printed on 8.5×11 semi gloss card stock paper.
