DESIGNING WOMEN 2008
... this month's winners show their talents
These are selected discoveries from the submissions of DTG readers, and participants in the Design Cafe Forums. We hope you enjoy them as much as we did...
Judy Ariel Thomas
"Hm - I'm still learning - and so should you!"
Judy is a photographer in the Lynchburg, Virginia, area using Windows XP and Photoshop CS3 to capture some rather special images. From her "on the road in Virginia" set, she demonstrates some lovely photo-enhanced shots of rural Virginia that are not to be missed!
"This old schoolhouse was just sitting there up in the hills of Central Virginia. It was boarded up and abandoned, but I could almost see the children laughing and playing on the grass."
When we discover talent this young and this bright, we know an extraordinary career lies ahead!
Fresh out of school, a recent graduate of Nazareth College of Rochester, Kasey Robinson is a graphic Illustrator in the Rochester, NY area, with huge potential! With her Bachelor's Degree of Science in Studio Art with a concentration in Graphic Design and Illustration, she'll be a hot prospect for art directors to discover.
"I feel very lucky that I have been part of the Graphic Design industry for four years. I cannot imagine my life without art being a part of it, as it is an outlet for my personal vision. The passion that I have for art is what drives me to continually improve my work."
We believe it!
While her favorite program is Illustrator, she's also well versed in the standard designer's tool box: Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, Macromedia, Quark, Dreamweaver, Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint. From her portfolio site we find many works that show an eye for design that challenges the veterans! Take a look at her other works at www.coroflot.com/aristeia
Deborah Pang Davis
While Deborah has only been at it for nine years, her work exhibits a rare talent for the dynamics of visual space. Deborah is a Freelance Graphic Designer from the Portland, Oregon area who specializes in publication design, magazines, books, catalogs and photographer promotions.
