2022 Employee Recognition Awards

One of my first larger-scale projects as a Graphic Design intern at Valley Water was to develop a series of 80's movies-themed posters to promote the annual Employee Recognition Awards event. As someone whose birth year starts with the number "2," this was an exciting and interesting opportunity for me to learn more about movie poster design in the 80's, while also having my Photoshop skills be put to the test.

The following poster did not make it to print production purely due to the committee's preference for another movie to represent this category, but it certainly deserves an honorable mention in my books because of how clever this idea turned out!

In addition to the posters, I worked on other supporting materials for the event, such as certificates, nomination announcements, and promotional digital graphics.

Knowing that my contribution to this successful company-wide event resulted in many laughs and excitement has to be my proudest accomplishment across the duration of this project.
