Artful Blogging

On 29, Aug 2011 | No Comments | In Chicago, Design, Photography | By Valerie

Well now I’ve done it.  I decided to start fresh with a new blog.  With my recent move to the Chicagoland area, I’ve had so many fresh thoughts and experiences that I’ve hardly had the time to share.

I feel pretty fortunate to have made some awesome connections while down here in Bloomington.  Anyone I’ve done freelance design or photography for has been incredibly easy to collaborate with, and it inspires me to make more work.

This Week, Maybe?

On 16, May 2011 | No Comments | In Design, Photography | By Valerie Leek

Logo Design, College View Animation, End of School

I can’t decide if I’m refusing to study because I’m having a hard time accepting that college/school is going to be done forever, or if I’m just in my usual procrastination mode.  Probably a little bit of both.  I have one final tomorrow, and then my last one is on Friday.  THEN I GRADUATE FROM COLLEGE ON SATURDAY! Yipes!

Spring Semester Blues

On 17, Jan 2011 | No Comments | In Design, Photography | By Valerie Leek

So, I’m here to say that my blog may be super lame this semester (or maybe you already thought it was lame… but if that were true, you wouldn’t be here I guess).
