9five

As part of my class study at San Diego State I was employed as an intern at 9FIVE, a San Diego based company that designs sunglasses along with other accessories, and apparel. Once at 9FIVE, I was asked to work on many different types of design work, including tech packs, flyers, pamphlets, web banners, illustrations, and posters.

All designs from project to project are meant to have the same type of design elements, usually always using the same colors, fonts, and logos. To best depict the inspiration for my creative efforts throughout my tenure at 9FIVE, and to further demonstrate the look and feel of the 9FIVE company, black & white photographs (taken by their in house photographer) are shown in this section.
