Travel Calendars

I am a digital nomad. This means I travel alot. Before my very first big overseas, multi-destination trip, my parents asked me to make them a calendar they could use as the background on their tablet devices. As a graphic designer, this task is super easy. So I made some backgrounds in Illustrator. I figured they need to know city and flight/bus details. I thought I would throw in the visual reference of flags.

The desktop size of my laptop is much greater and I really liked these calendars as a way of knowing where I was now, and what was coming up. I used the additional widescreen area to put some key photos (found on Google) that inspired me about visiting these locations.

This year when going on another long-extended multi-destination trip, I did the same travel calendars for friends and family. I was super glad to have made it easy to work with as I went through adding the new flags and locations. This time the trip was a lot slower so there is lots of duplication. (I walked 500km on the Camino de Santiago).

But at  the end of this trip, I had no home base to go back to and so many choices of my next adventure, I wasn’t sure how to express this. So I used fades and question marks.

The artboard in my Illustrator document has all the various goodies or elements to drag around as I need them. Super easy.

Showcasing

Sometimes the best way for me to show people what I did is to show them where I started.

SM Stationary Branding Mock Up (Volume I)

This week I have been wanting to update the format of the Lakazdi Behance account to be broken into project types, not my project/client. I also wanted to take some time to explain visually what it is that I have done.

I started with showing annual reports because this is a project type I just love.

This format also works well when showing multiple versions/designs for the one project. The visual overload of seeing my usual mock-ups for four pages for three different versions is, well overloading. This format shows the four pages but in a more condensed form.
