You are probably wondering ...
WHAT IS MUVR ?
I am in the process of developing an app similar to UBER and LYFT but for a different purpose. The point of MUVR would be for people who need to move large items (such as, dressers, beds, couches, tables, drum kits, amplifiers, speakers...etc), and have no way of getting them to where they need to be.
WOULD YOU USE MUVR?
I am taking the time to ask everyone I know simply..."Would you use Muvr?". Either from a consumer standpoint or as a driver? For those of us who are wanderlusts and travellers living in big cities most of us don't have use for a car or truck. Until it comes a time where you need to move a couch, or perhaps pickup an old dresser a friend is giving away, it isn't a large necessity to own a truck in a city.
Most people have turned Uber into a fulltime job. Several times I have taken a ride share the drivers will be running Uber and Lyft in their cars simultaneously. MUVR would be very similar but for drivers with large SUVs or pickup trucks.
WHAT WOULD YOU WANT TO SEE?
I wanted to share with everyone a wedding invite that I got to do for two of my most favorite people in the whole world.
Not only did I have the opportunity to design for such good friends, but they were probably the best clients I have ever worked with. When originally designing the invitation they had a few requests. The original mock up resembled more of a Hawaiian theme and was eventually scratched.
Many designers have to deal with clients completely changing everything they worked so hard on. A lot of times potentially destroying the original idea and almost stripping them of all creative control. This was the opposite case, their demands were so specific it opened up so much opportunity to play with the design. At first, Tiffany, the bride was messing with me for fun by requesting such ridiculous changes to the design that I had no other option to play along. In the end, they were very happy with the design.
A few requests.
- Beach scene
- The bride as a mermaid
- The groom as a pirate
- Mariachi band in the clouds
- A tiger on the horizon
- Fiesta themed for Cinco de Mayo
Here are the results:
Mark, the groom, still wanted to keep the band, but Tiffany voted against it. After some more revising we came to a final piece that did replace the mariachi band and tiger with writing in the sky and in the sand.
Here is the final invitation.
Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Johnson!
I have decided to start posting some design work that I do for fun and stuff that doesn't really fit in anywhere on my portfolio. So here are some labels I just designed.
Brooke knows how much I love craft beer, and food packaging that she thought it would be fun to get me a brewing kit online from Brooklyn Brew Shop. We bought some nice bottles and i designed some labels. After spending almost 5 hours brewing, 2 weeks storing in a dark place, and bottling another 2 weeks the beer is finally finished.
Here are the results.
