I do a number of graphical things for York College of PA Library & Technology Services (LTS), usually in service to our knowledge base (KB) and support resources. I also oversee contributing student employees. Below are some of my more utilized or unique examples.
YCP LTS logo
For our broad use of a graphic identity (in multiple sizes across various apps, media, shirts, equipment, etc.), I designed a wordless logo to complement our wordmark.
To be quickly identifiable as both Library & Technology, I made a WiFi symbol and some books, in our college colors.
York College of PA knowledge base
I've sought to organize our multitude of articles and resources into as simple, coherent, responsive, and easily searched an interface as possible.
I work within our official color palette, and occasionally add various colored banners to the top of our home page, during emergencies or events.
I build this at no additional cost to the college, with Google Sites. I also have experience working within knowledge base, CMS, LMS, and professional website building platforms.
Within the past few years, most phone cameras now read QR codes. I encouraged us to utilize them for door and desk signs, to check whether rooms are reserved, and to reduce our reliance on paper fliers (when we do use printed materials, we also add QR codes to direct to our KB).
It was successful enough that the demand became urgent, in some cases. So, I created a simple directive, using an online QR code builder and a variation on our logo, making it easy for any of our employees to whip one up, identical to the rest.
It also creates an identifiable, consistent seal, so that YCP members know which QR codes to trust.
I've made a number of flier designs in the past; this is the most recent. It's part of a digital "packet" of info given to incoming students and employees. With good reason, a number of other participating departments submit fliers full of information. We have the benefit of already storing and sharing our info digitally, so our piece needed only to be an eye-catching ad getting them to our KB for, in some cases, the first time. I made it interactive, for a bit of fun.
I didn't design most of these; I hunted them down & tamed them, as a problem-solving contribution. The admin who manages the college portal (used by all YCP members for applications and announcements) requested a graphic for each app.
I scoured the web for high enough resolution versions of the official logos (when the companies permitted, but only provided too low quality an image), cut them out, converted them, standardized the sizes/resolutions (for load times and responsiveness), and created an Adobe Illustrator template to keep them all consistent. As screen resolutions rise in the future, I can quickly re-export them to match.
