Events Unfolded

Events Unfolded is a brand-new wedding and event planning company located in Edmonton, Alberta. The client hired Obleek to design their logo as well as business card, and the website was the final stage of the branding process. Custom-designed vector illustrations add a colourful splash to the mostly blue palette, and allow for a fun, girly look while remaining visually pleasing to all clients. The site uses Expression Engine to allow for easy updates by the client, without required knowledge of HTML.

Resources used:

iStock Photo, the client's own photography, custom designed illustrations, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Expression Engine, Design Fruit vectors (purchased).

Hello, I know the web industry isn't blowing up with the economy the way it is. I actually found your website last year and occasionally check back to view updates of your projects. I am currently a teacher, with a vary broad range of skill sets related to web design and over all technology. I am thinking of making a switch or career change. I really like your style of web design. Do you have any suggestions of how to break in the industry, or am I chasing my tail? Thanks in advance for any help you may offer. I love your site!

Hi Jawanza,

For some reason my comment alerts had turned off on my portfolio, so I just noticed this now while doing some housekeeping! I apologize for not noticing it sooner.

I guess my advice would be to establish some work on the side first, before making the switch. If you've done that already, awesome! Once your side works starts to match your full time job in terms of workload, then it's time to think about venturing out on your own. At least that's what I did. Contacts and networking were key for me... and word of mouth works wonders. Even now, I don't need to seek out work very often. I also have a blog post about starting your own freelance business as well. You can check it out at http://www.obleek.net/blog/comments/becoming_a_freelance_designer/

I hope that helps, and feel free to email me if you want to chat more.
