I was feeling down after some dental surgery took my energy away. So I decided to draw with my 7-year-old. I decided on my favorite My Little Pony, Pinkie Pie. Here’s the result.
This is my entry for the 2019 Eastern Idaho State Fair Sugar Art Show Sculptured Figurine. The theme for the category this year was Fairyland. The story of Tom Thumb was first published in 1621, and thus is the first fairy-tale printed in English. Tom Thumb of the original story was a bit of a […]
In Idaho Falls, University of Idaho and Idaho State University share a campus. The sign by the entrance is old and out-dated. This was an attempt to refresh the sign while keeping branding standards for both schools. Issues with the original sign: Broken plastic parts of Idaho State University Branding for both universities is outdated […]
Since I designed our house addition, I was asked to design a garage addition for a client. The garage was to have a small shop in the back, a laundry bonus room, and another bonus room in the attic. Here’s what I came up with.
I was again asked to create a book cover for Drs. Lee T. Ostrom and Cheryl A. Wilhelmsen. This time it was for the second edition of the Risk Assessment book. Here’s a look at the first edition. The authors wanted to move away from the Nuclear power look. I put together these grids of […]
A friend’s daughter received a miniature model of the moon that glows and posted this picture. I added a highlight in Photoshop Then I added some details from a photo of the actual moon… And cleaned it up with some color effects…
These are the drawings I did for Inktober in 2018. Inktober is a drawing activity wherein artists use only inks to draw images based on a list of themes chosen for each day. I only made it through the 5th before I got too busy, but I had to share these here:
This was my 2018 entry for the Eastern Idaho State Fair Sugar Art Show in the Fondant Wedding Cake category. The theme was Art Deco. I hand sculpted everything out of fondant.
I made this Monster Book of Monsters for my daughter as a guestbook for her Harry Potter themed birthday party.
This is a fun sketch I did of Apple Jack from the My Little Pony kids’ show.
For the 2017 Eastern Idaho State Fair Sugar Art Show, I entered this into the Sculptured Figurine Category. The theme was Zombie Couple: ‘Til Death Do Us Part. I created a video playlist walkthrough of how I made this sculpture.
I did a design for each state through which the eclipse totality passed. My favorites are the ones that contain the eclipse design within the name.
We’ve had a problem…our house is getting too small. Or rather our children are growing and we need to add another room. Here are some of the designs, floor plans, and 3d model images from SketchUp. The before shot: Built the house in SketchUp Here is the before with the roof off Here is the […]
I’ve gotten into sculpting lately. Partly out of interest for a new hobby (like I really need one), and partly out of interest to do something with my hands. Here are a few designs I’ve done either for fun or to help out my wife’s awesome cake business, Rexburg Cakes. Up first is a bas […]
I’ve edited my own family’s picture for years. It usually takes about sixteen shots to get just right one of each person, then add them in and remove the strange bits. In this case, I was commissioned to edit this family photo. Apart from having fun by putting in pirates and sea monsters, which I […]
Please, watch the video before you read the description. My wife, owner of Rexburg Cakes:, made this cake back in July for our son’s birthday. When I saw it, I knew I wanted to do this video. However, I didn’t have a good camera on me, and I knew my schedule was going to get […]
I designed this book cover illustration. The topics in the book include how ergonomics are important in all industries, not just office and computer usage — which seems to be the lions share of published illustrations. I was asked to show how welders could employ ergonomics in their work and came up with this idea […]
Rexburg Cakes makes some very delicious cakes. They needed a delicious logo. Here it is: Now, go check out their Facebook page and order a cake!
These logos were created for projects during my employment at University of Idaho. This was created for the YouTube channel I created to post UIIF media… Manufacturing and Robotics Teaching Laboratory (MRTL) University of Idaho at Idaho Falls Center 60th Anniversary Mealtime Inspiration These logos were created for projects for my business, North Rockies Design. […]
As an adjunct instructor for University of Idaho in Idaho Falls, I’ve created a class on the basics of Adobe Illustrator for use by Industrial Technology students. Part of the curriculum includes projects that mirror real-world design issues. These few pieces are example projects that I’ve used to demonstrate the techniques I’m teaching in the […]
I finally got back into drawing. It’s not that I haven’t drawn anything since 2003, but I just got into digital drawing again. The reason is that I just got my Wacom Intuos 3 tablet this year. I’ve been using a mouse for years to do design work on the computer, and decided it was […]
This is the logo created for University of Idaho and Eastern Idaho Technical College joint effort: thw Manufacturing and Robotics Teaching Laboratory.
This was poster designed while at University of Idaho, announcing the first Potato Derby. Contact info changed for portfolio.
This is the University of Idaho mascot, Joe Vandal. I have this magnet, but wanted a sign to hang in my window in my office. So I scanned in the magnet, and did a little design magic to spruce him up a little bit.
The 60th Anniversary of University of Idaho at Idaho Falls Center (UIIF) was a huge project, literally. Each poster is 44 inches tall by 32 wide. There are seven of them. Apart from the posters, this was a long time in the making…60 years. OK, all puns aside, it was a big event that I […]
This video was a recorded interview to promote the Industrial Technology program at University of Idaho in Idaho Falls. My goal was to have the text write on the walls as he spoke. Motion graphics were edited in Adobe After Effects.
This project was another collaboration with University of Idaho Education Extension. I was asked to edit previously recorded video on pruning fruit trees. I created the motion graphics, edited the music, and comped the titles over the footage. Enjoy!
This video series was all captured in the same day. I got permission from each participant to record an interview of things each wished he or she had known at the beginning of the semester. I then edited and created the motion graphics of the type in After Effects.
This was a very large, multi-faceted project. The Education Extension department of University of Idaho contacted me to help put together a cooking show. My part was pre-event advertising, production direction of the event, and post-production editing. And this event was all done on a very low budget too! Less than $5000 including production time. […]
I worked with Therapy Aquatics on video editing, labels, and DVD menu and titles for two DVDs: Myofascial Aquatic Body Work, and Introduction to Bad Ragaz Ring Method. The footage for both videos was recorded previously, but some titles needed correction. This was a difficult process to determine what could be salvaged from the original […]
While at I.E. Productions, I did all the website programming for this website–three times because of hosting and fulfillment vendor changes. The site included personalized page recognition for replicated sites. This meant, a Fragrance Advisor could hand out business cards directing their own customers to a personal website such as cierraashley.com/ryanhaworth/. The site was programmed […]
So, lately Google has produced their Codegirl movie. This has nothing to do with that. These are some designs for shirts I thought up back in June 2010. I just hadn’t gotten around to posting them. Enjoy!
Here’s a logo and business card design for a local general contractor. Contact information changed for portfolio.
In 2008, Kingston Companies wanted to revise logos for all their property holdings, and I was tasked with the job while at I.E. Productions. Each logo was originally based on the original Kingston Marketing logo (which they have used for decades, I didn’t create it, just provide it here for reference): The first job was […]
In 2008, while employed at I.E. Productions, I was again in charge of the design for the promotions for the Eastern Idaho State Fair. The theme for the year was Your Ticket to Fun!. Here’s the full brochure for the promotion. This brochure was printed on a thick card stock and accordion folded to look […]
Following the success of their first album, Moulton Jess returned to me to design their sophomore album, Lonely Road to Freedom. This was a little more work because the style had to change. I ended up compositing the truck on the rear from a few different old trucks, a 3D model, photoshopped broken window, faked […]
This is a motion graphics demo reel of work I completed at I.E. Productions during the ten years I worked with them. I was working for them as a multimedia/website/graphic designer. Then, Gary Stewart gave me my first project in After Effects and I was in charge of motion graphics for any titles, lower thirds, […]
While a student at Brigham Young University Idaho I found a service opportunity to work with Legacy Flight Museum as a Publicity Assistant. This was a great opportunity to work with the other volunteers at such an historic location. My responsibilities included some design work to create the brochure both advertising the museum and announcing […]
I really liked this one. Sadly, it never came to fruition as the company sunk.
This is the Kingston Marketing’s brochure entitled From Planting to Plate. The brochure is a mockup of a brown paper grocery bag full of produce. The brochure contains twelve pullout pages featuring information on each specific variety of produce offered. The 2012 electronic version has 27 varieties of produce. While employed at I.E. Productions, I […]
These are all programs and materials I’ve designed for events at church, neighborhood organizations, and other groups. Cooking With Home Storage Flyer
Another project for the Eastern Idaho State Fair. This year, I was moved on to another project, so I only assisted in the designs. My part included the logo for the season: As can be seen below, the final logo was the without the top hat. This is the commercial produced to advertise the fair. […]
Play ball! It was always fun to work on projects for the Idaho Falls Chukars, even before they were the Chukars! I.E. Productions served the team for a very long-time. My first task was to create some stickers for the team (then the Padres): It wasn’t long before the name changed to the Chukars. The […]
Here’s a flyer I designed for G.L. Voigt, while at I.E. Productions. The interesting thing is that when I designed it, I had no idea where the property was. Then, just over a year later, I ended up working for University of Idaho, which is right next to the INL office in the flyer.
Monviso is a real estate property in Utah. While at I.E. Productions, I worked on a few projects to help them with marketing of their 40-acre estate lots. We produced the promotional video, still featured on the front page of their website. I did the motion graphics (titles and animated still photos) in Adobe After […]
This project was created for the Bingham Memorial Hospital’s Radiology department. The idea was to be sure the local residents didn’t throw it away as though it were junk mail. First, the envelope was designed to appear as an X-Ray film delivery: Open it up to see the velum printed to look like an X-Ray […]
I created this logo for Idaho Doctor’s Hospital while working at I.E. Productions. Oh look, they’re still using it.
From the beginning of my working relationship with I.E. Productions, I worked on projects for Freedom Arms. In fact, my first project was an update on the Freedom Arms website in 2002. Wow! It looks almost exactly the same as when I made those edits. Over the subsequent years, I continued to edit the website […]
Here’s a little video to get you in the holiday cheer. I did the motion graphics, and reindeer animation at the end in Adobe After Effects while at I.E. Productions in 2006. We miss you Wayne.

In 2002, Melaleuca had I.E. Productions create a multimedia CD-Rom for their Fast Track program…right before I was hired. Four years later, a change was needed, and I was given the project. The first time around the “Fast Track” was themed with high speed trains flying out toward the screen. I decided that it would […]
Here’s a CD-Rom I designed while at I.E. Productions for Kingston Marketing. As with other CD-Rom projects I created, this was authored in Macromedia Director (version 9 or 10, I think), with screen images created in Adobe Photoshop.This was the pre-cursor to the Planting to Plate brochure. This is the main interface screen. Here’s a […]
Here’s another project that I’m proud to see around quite often.. Island Park Lodges and Cabins asked me, while at I.E. Productions, to do a few things to promote their rentals. First was to create a logo. The stipulation was that they wanted this logo to serve for their branding but also as one of […]
It’s sad when a project I’ve worked on disappears. This is true for the album designs and website work I did for Moulton Jess, and I don’t even like country music. They were a rocking country-style band from eastern Idaho. With two albums, a bunch of great shows with Taylor Swift, Rodney Atkins, Neil McCoy, Phil Vassar, […]
While employed at I.E. Productions, I created this website for On The Table from Idaho Falls. This company provided a licensed kitchen where customers would come and prepare meals to take and keep refrigerated until needed during the week. The premise was to save time by doing the prep-work in bulk. The website ran on […]
When I was first hired by I.E. Productions, I worked to clean up errors and prepare labels for the product bags for Mountain West Products in Rexburg, Idaho. I’ll not include those here because I didn’t do the designs, but I did create one of the product brochures: Here are the page files MWP-Brochure
These are motion graphics effects I did in Adobe After Effects 3.1 back in 2003 through 2005 for Rick’s Mitsubishi while employed with I.E. Productions. One theme I kept rolling (maybe too long) during these commercials was the seizure-inducing shakey-logo inspired by the international branded Mitsubishi commercials from 2003, such as this one: I replicated […]
One of the best parts about working for I.E. Productions was the soup tasting from Bear Creek Country Kitchens. Here are a few highlights of the projects I worked on for Bear Creek. I designed a killer website with flash animated buttons: In addition to the website layout and programming, I comped up some of […]
What do you do as a designer when files get lost, corrupted, or destroyed and you need to make a change? That’s the story behind this portfolio piece. The original was created in 1999, three years before I started working at I.E. Productions. When Wada Farms asked us to revise the poster with updated logos, […]
During my work at I.E. Productions, I did a lot of motion graphics for TV commercials for Museum of Idaho. The first project I did for the museum was: Directed by Gary Stewart, he wrote the song and recorded it with a studio full of children. Produced at I.E. Productions in 2004. I did the […]
For Reebok Fitness exercise equipment, I was asked to create some banner advertisements. This was a project I created at I.E. Productions. Here’s a few of the ads I created:
This was a logo for a semi-pro soccer team in Idaho Falls. Created in 2003. Also, business cards!
My wife was given a copy of this print when she was growing up. Some of you may recognize it as one of the murals in the Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Idaho Falls. Since we were married there, and wanted to keep a little bit of the Temple […]
For WESLO exercise equipment, I was asked to create some banner advertisements. This was a project I created at I.E. Productions. Here’s a few of the ads I created:
I did a design of water bottle label. This was the original. This is the revision. Oh, and the water was really, really good.
I drew all of these over a decade ago in pencil. I tend to draw better from a still image than a live sitting. I’m not very good at that yet, still. So these were all drawn from images found on the Internet and in magazines. This one is a concept sketch This one is […]
Here’s a multimedia CD-Rom I created while at I.E. Productions. I didn’t do the awesome graphics for the label or interface, but I did build the all the backend and the graphics for the loader screen. The CD label: Here’s the launcher I designed: The home screen: When the wheels (buttons) were rolled over, they […]
I created this Nicole Miller project while at I.E. Productions. The Nicole Miller line was offered by Melaleuca as one of their product lines. This CD-Rom was to help independent sales associates become familiar with Nicole Miller, train on how to use their products, and to store the necessary ordering and sales forms. Here’s a […]
How many people can say that they’ve designed something that covers acres and acres of ground? I can! Here are a few of the corn mazes I designed while working for MazePlay, Inc. from 2002-2006. I’ve done a lot more than this, however, I didn’t keep very good track and I can’t tell which ones […]
I had been working at I.E. Productions for less than a month when I worked on these two projects. In fact, it was one of the reasons I was hired. So, I hit the ground running. Here’s a video of the interactive CD-Rom created in Macromedia Director for AMIS Foundry Services. It worked just like […]
This is a website I did as a contractor for Intecon/iPares in 2000. I was working onsite at North American Membership Group, which had seven different clubs with millions of members nationwide. Here are some screenshots: This is a revised site layout that I worked on: And here’s a banner ad I did for the […]
This was the interface of an intranet landing page for 3M Dental, all the way back in 2000. The design was created in Adobe Photoshop.
This portfolio entry is bittersweet to me. It is because of my employment at techies.com that I owe a lot of my hands-on website design and multimedia design experience early on in my career. However, they were the first company to lay me off. In fact, they laid off 30 designers in May of 2000. […]
When working as a freelance multimedia designer in 1999 and 2000, Fred Badiyan of Badiyan, Inc. asked me to do some revisions to a multimedia project they had in the works. The client, US West had new data and needed the graphs and some other information updated. Later, I was asked to convert the same […]
In 1999, I was working for Keys Marketing, in Denver, Colorado. This was one of the websites I designed.
This is reaching back into the archives. I just found these. This is the first project I ever did in Adobe Illustrator (Version 7, in 1997). This little cereal box was created in my Adobe Illustrator class in 1997, way back in design school. It was good practice with the pen tool to create each […]
