In March and April 2016, Alma completed a poster which included all of the dates for the Chad and Jeremy tour. She used skills she had developed from her recent Adobe Education Exchange course on InDesign CC.
In the design, many graphical elements were re-worked. The logotype for the group was made in to a more rectangular shape using Illustrator. Several photos were reviewed and adjusted in Photoshop and elements which were adjusted for this poster are going to be incorporated in upcoming marketing materials.-10-101
There is nothing quite like using design to call back the days gone by. Alma used Adobe Photohop to clean up image files and Adobe Illustrator to build this retro promotion. Her goal was to create a graphic which highlighted the era of the albums and harmonized with the colors of the concert photo.-10-101

Alma and a colleague reviewed and updated the online list of items available through Loyola’s Equipment Loan Program. Alma spearheaded the visual changes, avoiding the square pictures previously used on the website and in management proposed redesigns. The final design features equipment photos in an extreme landscape aspect to facilitate a more equal visual presence for all types of equipment items.
In tandem with this visual shift, all of the content was updated and reorganized, the new organization being heavily based on the Equipment Loan Binder which was finalized two months previous. This reorganization reduced the number of menu items from 24 to 19 future-proof categories.
The website is based on the T4 content management system.-10-101
On the booklet for The Bottom Drawer Sessions, there is a photo of a drawer and its contents. These were curated by Jeremy Clyde, from family mementos to souvenirs of life on the road, and several of them have a story attached.
This video and was created within AfterEffects CS6 and Adobe Premiere Pro CS6.-10-101
After working with Rick Jones and Valerie Neale, friends of Chad and Jeremy’s, we began to joke about the (fictional) older, darker music group “Vlad and Jeremy”. Inspired by the album art Rick created, I developed a publicity poster for the album’s resurrection, complete with tracks spun-off from Chad and Jeremy hits. The poster was posted on Chad and Jeremy social media channels in time for Halloween 2014-10-101
The original logo and symbol for LilMarauder Productions played heavily on the “marauder” part of the name. However, increasing client work demanded a move towards a simpler, cleaner symbol which could feature in watermarks. Over the course of a month, Alma developed a new logo that was based on the slightly shattered look of the logo for 6th Floor Studios.
Alma also expanded the LilMarauder website from the few photo galleries it had been to something that provided a little more information about her experience, values and interests. Initially, Alma used a set of HTML5 and CSS3 templates, modifying them and and carving the elements in to chunks to be re-assembled using PHP.
For the launch of the Bottom Drawer Sessions solo album, Alma designed several pieces of merchandise that could be sold and given away for marketing.
A limited edition shirt sold at the one night only concert, when Jeremy performed songs from the album, for an audience, for the first time.
A glossy 8×10 photo of Jeremy Clyde in concert.
A promotional post card with an excerpt from a review in Goldmine magazine (photo coming).
