Graphic Design Work Samples

These are some of my graphic designs, all were created using Illustrator to create these vector graphics.

Gig Poster:

This is not a real event or DJ. This was my first attempt at a neon effect, I love learning new techniques. I also created the font used for the DJ’s name.

Stickers:

I designed these with my brother in mind, who is an avid biker in Las Vegas.

How to Kills Bugs YouTube Video

I created this video for a website I created for an S.E.O. Class. This video could have been anything but I chose to make it funny because why not? Our topic for the website was pest control. The objective of this assignment was to create content that could up our SEO. Making a video about methods of pest control sounded like a snooze fest so I made this parody, inspired by all those make-up guru YouTubers.

I’m obviously not known on the web but this video has over 1K views, which may not be a lot to most, but is my 2nd highest viewed YouTube Video. The first is an incredibly embarrassing video I made when I was 15 that has over 10K views. I was able to get most of my views for this video by sharing it on Facebook and by using keywords/tags when posting on YouTube.

This was filmed by a Nikon D7200 and edited in Adobe Premier.

The Sock Shop Commercials

These are a couple of the commercials I made for a shop I helped start and operate on my college campus. I made there while I was marketing director. They played on monitors school wide, and on the company’s social media.

Bear Stop Motion:

I was day dreaming about this idea for days and was so excited to make it happen! I made a homemade light box for this and began to film with a Nikon D7200. The bear was so small that It was difficult to focus so I switched to my iPhone. I used an app called Stop Motion to edit this.. I was amazed how simple this process was!

Feet commercial:

I wish you all could have seen me around campus pushing a long board while lying face down on the ground to get most of these shots. This was shot on a Nikon D7200 and edited in Adobe Premier Pro, I didn’t have all of the equipment I needed but it was fun trying to make this work!

Broadcasting Videos

Every night growing up I’d see my parents watch Primer Impacto, Univision’s evening news. I’d tell my parents, one day i’m going to be like Jorge Ramos, now an 8 time Emmy Award winning Spanish news anchor. And so my journey began, in middle school, high school and even my first two years of college, I was an active participate in my schools’ broadcast journalism programs.

While in broadcast, I filmed packages, anchored, and produced.

My senior year of high school I was the head anchor where we placed 3rd out of 48 schools in the Clark County, Nevada school district for Best in Show.

I will continue to search through to find more videos but here are a couple:

This one is sillier but I had so much fun shooting it. It was at the beginning of the school year my senior year, the girl in the middle was the previous years head anchor so it was kind of funny for the school.

Monday Motivation Work Training Video

This is a video I made for a work training I gave about self motivation and positive attitude. I got together with a few co-workers who helped me knock this out from concept to Youtube upload in less than 2 hours. It was filmed and edited on my iPhone using iMovie for iPhone.

I’ll take any excuse I can to make a video.

Photo Contest

I took this image at Bannack. It was taken completely with natural light. My setting were 1/50sec, f/6.3, ISO 100, with a 50mm lens on a Nikon D7200.

I entered this image into gurushots.com Newbie of the Month contest. I liked this one a lot, it’s just a bunch of people who love photography. I thought it was fun to be in a contest with other people who are brand new to photography. 12/10/2016

kimberly_amparo_macro3_web

I took this during Macro week. I set up a backdrop with white canvas. I had 2 LED light boxes set up. I had macro tubes attached to 75 to 300 mm on the same Nikon D7200.

I entered this into two contests on www.viewbug.com. The first was called Mother Nature (https://www.viewbug.com/challenge/mother-nature-photo-challenge-by-capture2016) and the second was Green (https://www.viewbug.com/challenge/g-r-e-e-n-photo-challenge-by-clourens). I like this site because there are SO many categories to enter into and so many submissions. I loved looking at what others entered as well as submitting these! It’s crazy how many categories one picture could enter into.

cowboy_kimberlyamparo_web

This image was taken at Bannack of Stan the Cowboy. It was taken with a 50mm on a Nikon D7200. Settings were at f/5.6, 1/160 sec, ISO 200.

I also entered this one at www.viewbug.com. I entered into their Best Portrait conest (https://www.viewbug.com/challenge/best-portrait-photo-challenge-by-ilyayakover/gallery). This contest was different than the others on this site. It required me to write about the image and create a title for it. .

 

Photobook

This semester taking COMM 300 at BYUI has been an adventure. I originally felt helpless, I couldn’t even take a picture with proper lighting or focus. I didn’t even know how to move the settings. I’m grateful for the hard times, it was a steep learning curve but it was so worth it.

All the pictures in my book are from different blog posts of the semester. I put together this photobook in InDesign using pages. I used Oxford for the title fonts and Open Sans for the body copy. I then sent it to MyPublisher and received it in the mail shortly after. Here’s my final product.
