FRED FRANCO ILLUSTRATOR/GRAPHIC DESIGN ARTIST

Hello. Thanks for stopping by my mobile studio; with a lil' swipe action I'm able to share some of the projects I have created for my site here at Jefferson Commons. My first love is the old school method of sketching and painting by hand. I have incorporated this style into many of my designs in order to produce one of a kind pieces of art. Most of the projects I create are using programs in the Adobe suite, Photoshop, Illustrator, and After Effects. My goal is to always create one of a kind designs that are as unique as the people looking at them.

2017 large scale projects

This first project was a 2017 re-design of our game room. We wanted to add some pub-style art to the building to give it that competitive feel; what better way to make it competitive than with these GAME CHANGERS? Each one of these athletes have played such a major role in their given sport by dedicating their lives to the craft and going above to become GREAT! Each panel was created in Photoshop using illustration techniques to achieve a vintage feel with a twist of T-Mobile branding. The wall is 17 Ft tall and 22 Ft wide, each panel was printed on vinyl-transfer paper and installed permanently on the walls you see below.

Best Place to Work!

This project is the largest piece I have done to date and definitely the most challenging. My Director asked me to recreate our feature (article below) from the Albuquerque Business First newspaper in large scale for the whole site to see. I was given two guidelines: Go big and make it 3D.

This Massive 44 Ft wall was the canvas! Ready, Set, Go!!

I chose to recreate the original newspaper article and 2 others to mimic the original. I wanted to keep it T-Mobile so I used subjects in the articles that are important to our culture and site here in Albuquerque. Each of the Articles measured 16 ft in height by 13 ft wide. I created the 'Best Place to Work' logo out of foam blocks and custom painted to match the logo in the article. Each of the foam blocks measured 6 Ft x 6 Ft.

illustrations

Sketching is a passion of mine; I find that, through my illustrations, I am able to create pieces that are one of a kind!

I created this piece for WLN, it was used as a 10ft x 10ft backdrop on the Care Amped Leadership Call.

LOGOS

All of the logos were created using Adobe Illustrator

VIDEO WORK

Kinetic Typography using Adobe After Effects and Premiere pro

William Quijano from our National L&D Team asked me to help create a Christmas video for his "All Hands" end of the year business call. I created the kinetic text effects in Adobe After Effects and the video editing in Premiere Pro CS6.

pastels and chalk

The Newly installed chalk board walls have been a great way to communicate messages to the entire site in a fun and effective way!

Our lovely Jackie Dodson from Resource Planning allowed me to use her as a model for my mural to support the #feeface push.
