As a member of the Publications team for the second year of CONsole Room, THE Twin Cities’ Doctor Who Convention, I created three new images in three different styles, a program book, and an array of badges for all attendees and guests of the convention.
The t-shirt was designed in the style of a “costume t-shirt” with a printed version of the 6th Doctor’s colorful duds. The costume was modified to incorporate nods to the convention: a pin of the Minneapolis skyline replaces the 6th Doctors cat pin, the date of the convention replaced the question marks normally seen on his shirt lapels, and his pocketwatch featured the CONsole Room logo. The design was screen printed in six colors on white t-shirts that ranged in adult sizes from small through 5X. I used halftones to give the appearance of a larger array of colors.
The 5.5″ x 8.5″ program book, filled with 36 pages of helpful materials to help attendees navigate the convention such as the daily schedule and information about the guests, features a digital painting I created of the four Guests of Honor for the convention, with the Minneapolis skyline serving as a backdrop. Printed with color cover and black and white interior. Interior materials laid out with Adobe InDesign, painting created in Adobe Photoshop.
To help with advertisements for the volunteering team, I created a black and white line drawing of the Brigadier, a character in Doctor Who, featuring the iconic “I want YOU to [insert action here]” pose.
The badges were single-sided 3.5″ x 6″ images with multiple variations made for every need. Badges were color-coded to make them easier to spot from a distance. Badges were created in Adobe Photoshop.
