This is a sticker design that I created last year of a blue plastic dinosaur. It was created just for fun and so I could share them with my senior students last year. The stickers are vinyl, 4.75" x 3.0" in size and are awesome quality. If you would like to purchase one, I will ship to anyone in the US for $3.75 each. Leave a comment on this post if you are interested and I will get back to you as soon as I can with the details for purchasing.
After I tossed the round badge idea for my sticker, this die-cut version ended up being a sticker that was handed out to participants in the event. This particular item was met with great enthusiasm and the students thought it was awesome!
(If you are one of my graphic design students or alumni, yes that is a drop shadow. I am only using it here to show the nice thick white border detail.)
My commemorative die-cut sticker for my Yellowstone Association Institute course this year made it to "The Sticker Gallery" for stickermule. You can check it out at http://www.stickermule.com, a custom sticker print house who offers designers great quality and affordable die-cut stickers.
I almost always use a single sticker on the front cover of my sketchbooks to distinguish one book from another book. This past summer I decided to design my very own commemorative die-cut sticker for my 2012 Yellowstone Association Institute workshop.
Last Sunday afternoon, I
completed my Yellowstone Association Institute Summer 2012 sketchbook workshop
and all of my students got one of these stickers. They loved them and I hope to
continue this tradition in my future workshops.
This design represents the first commemorative sticker design for a workshop and that Yellowstone National Park is the world's first national park.
My sketchbook of choice is the Moleskine brand. I am enamored with the look, the feel, the size and the way it handles with my favorite media. I have over a dozen “moles” of varying types and sizes, but most often use the large format (5.25 x 8.25 inches). Quite a few of my books are full while others are in progress.
I use a single sticker on the front cover to distinguish one book from another book. I pick up stickers when I am traveling for this purpose. The two moles here are from 2006 and 2007. The fish bone sticker is from the Trout Tree restaurant in Kenya. The Zion Utah sticker is from a trip to Zion National Park.
