A Short Story

I've been a freelance graphic designer since 2010 and I'm loving it. In the summer of 2010, I began my freelance career, working as a production designer for Aion Solutions, an environmental branding agency known for transforming facilities nationwide through custom murals, specialty signage, displays and more. I was honored to work with clients such as Giant Eagle, Burger King and the Art Institute of Chicago. A year and a half later, I moved on to work at the Center of Innovation through Visualization & Simulation (CIVS), a graduate research facility inside of Purdue University Calumet where I would begin exercising my website development abilities. While holding my position as webmaster for CIVS, I took on an internship at Ad Force Creative, an advertising agency and a year later I worked at IdeaSeat Marketing & Advertising for a summer. After the summer, I moved on to working with the United Way as a branding designer for their campaign events while working with Indiana University Health as a graphic designer and the Veteran Beer Company as a website designer and front-end developer.

TEDxCountyLineRoad

  • Web Design

TEDxCountyLineRoad is Northwest Indiana’s first-ever TEDx event organized by a group of young professionals in Northwest Indiana. Joining the committee board as their creative director, I was responsible for conveying the TEDx theme and message visually. The idea behind the theme was to create a series of intersecting lines to emphasize a map of interaction. Perceptively, lines in this context are intended to be viewed as either roads to indicate ‘County Line Road’ (which the TEDx event was held at County Line Orchard on County Line Road), interaction from different walks of life and a blueprint of change and leading innovation in the Northwest Indiana community.

 

I was also responsible for the development of the website. A simple and intuitive user-interface was built to convey the concept to our audience digitally, to create a epicenter of information regarding speakers, sponsors, affiliates and committee members, to facilitate a ticket registration gateway and to offer a platform to recapture the experience through professional photos and video.

Ron Delhaye Studios

  • Branding
  • Identity Design

As my first successful logo design, I have been fortunate to see the Ron Delhaye Studios logo garner a nation-wide audience and appear across a multitude of facets. When Ron Delhaye approached me for a concept & design, he expressed his photography business needed to be perceived professionally yet artistically with a touch of personality. The touch of personality was the use of the fleur-de-lis.

 

With my creative edge, I gave the fleur-de-lis a personal meaning, tying in Ron’s initials onto each side and creating a perfect ambigram. Combined with robust and elegant typography, I had given Ron Delhaye Studios a new face and personality, one that was sharp, intricate, professional and artistic.

Growing as a starting photographer, I met with Lauren Albanese to discuss her logo mark and learned that her message was to capture the beauty in her audience. Throughout my research, I narrowed down the options into one solution, an elegant script that captured the beauty of the Lauren Albanese Photography vision. A ligature was made to initialize Lauren’s logo while maintaining it’s true value.

 

Within a couple of years, Lauren asked me to design and develop her official portfolio website. Upon her request, I designed a custom WordPress theme that incorporated the Lauren Albanese Photography brand look and feel and developed it to industry standards, giving it a clean and flexible layout that was responsive for both tablet and mobile devices. Lauren Albanese Photography has become a success where the logo has been applied through signage and wall murals.

INsight Design Conference program book INsight Design Conference - Welcome Flyer

INsight Design Conference

  • Graphic Design

I was honored to have the opportunity to work on the official program book for the INsight Design Conference and design a compelling front cover. Hailed as the de facto creative networking event, the front cover was designed to communicate with creatives from different backgrounds (Graphic Designers, Web Developers, Photographers, Artists, etc.) to include them in the creative community. Yet, the cover tells a deeper story for the creative, regardless of what speciality they’re in and are reminded that being a creative is a lifestyle, that creatives work with the same tools and models to do what they do best, every day.

United Way

  • Identity Design

I was approached by the United Way of La Porte County to conceptualize and design an identity for their annual 5K Run, Walk & Roll. Their vision was to be perceived as one of the best, fun and memorable 5K events in Northwest Indiana. With this logo design, not only does it tell the story of a runner chasing towards the 5K mark, it also shows a connection between the running audience and the United Way through the use of their brand colors and typography.

 

Titled “Run United,” this logo design has given the 5K Run, Walk & Roll it’s own face and personality that evokes movement and energy. The logo has been used across printed banners, online advertisements, t-shirts, trophies, medals and photography backdrops.

  • Billboard Design
  • Publication Design

Communicating to patients, colleagues and doctors, I was responsible for designing marketing & advertising materials for Indiana University Health La Porte & Starke Hospitals (IU Health La Porte & Starke Hospitals). Ranging from billboards to internal & external publications, I ensured the message of each creative piece tailored to the desired audience while reflecting the overall lifestyle look and feel that adheres to the Indiana University Health brand.

 

The Indiana University Health publications that I’ve worked with include the monthly IU Health Matters, quarterly Strength & Wellness, and Life & Times. I’ve also been involved as a graphic designer for Indiana University Health’s Orthopedics & Sports Medicine campaign and Heart & Vascular campaign.

Purdue University

  • Branding
  • Identity Design

As a Purdue University student, I was offered the opportunity to rebrand the Purdue University Marketing Association student organization. After ten years of a familiar face, I was asked to create a logo and brand look/feel that emphasized the marketing profession. Using Purdue’s black and gold brand colors, I gave the logo a sharp rise with the letter M. My concept was to emphasize that letter to identify the marketing organization and show the organization’s increase in student participants and the organizations connections and presence in the industry.

 

Upon the success of the rebranding, I’ve also contributed the design and development of the Purdue University Marketing Association’s official student organization website, as a custom designed WordPress theme along with several marketing materials including but not limited to: brochures, posters, fliers, application forms, etc.

I am in love with my logo design by Jamie Wayne! So glad I chose him to do the job. After a thorough evaluation of likes, dislikes, dreams, and where I want to go with my company, he came up with the best design for ME- something my clients will know me by, and I feel best suits what I do. I love that. He’s very personable, professional, and takes his job of making my logo work for me, seriously.After his work was done, I had questions about how to use my design, and he quickly was available to meet with me, and make sure I understood how to put my new logo to work! Thank you, Jamie!! I will enjoy this design for years and years to come!!

When I decided to contact Jamie about creating a logo for my business and branding my name, I was very confident that he would produce work that I would be satisfied with, but I did not expect what I would be getting. The final product that Jamie furnished for me was nothing short of brilliant. The logo he designed for me not only represents myself and my business exactly how I envision it, but it also sends a message to my clients. Professional, elegant, unique, creative. These are all things that Jamie has successfully integrated into a design that is not just a logo but a message. He is outstanding at what he does and will surely be a well known name in the design industry. In the future, I will not hesitate to contact or refer Jamie for any graphic design or branding need.
