Business Cards

Hey y'all,

I rigged up some new business cards.

Since I don't actually meet that many clients face-to-face, I don't give out many cards. So, I thought I'd post a shot of some here so someone may see them!

Regards,

Chad

Illustration Friday - Imagine


My post for Illustration Friday's theme "Imagine" is based on a pretty simple concept. It has been frrrreeezing in my part of the world lately, and I've been longing to spend some time in the hot sun.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Illustration Friday - Surprise

Hi everyone,

For this week’s Illustration Friday topic, “Surprise”, I knew I didn’t want to show the exact moment when someone was taken aback. Rather, I wanted to illustrate either the anticipation of a surprise or maybe the result of a surprise.

Since this is a time of year when many people get engaged, I thought of a man about to surprise someone with a proposal.

Enjoy!

Illustration Friday - Blue


Hello everyone,

Below is my contribution to Illustration Friday’s topic “Blue”. While I had no clear idea regarding content, I knew right off the bat I didn’t want to use much of the colour blue in the piece.

My answer came while getting a Super Big Gulp. Two little girls were in the back of a car drinking Slurpees (despite the fact it was freezing cold outside), showing each other their coloured tongues. Ha ha.

Regards,

Chad

Illustration Friday - Small

I've noticed a lot of those tiny, goofy-lookin' "Smart Cars" around. They are the inspiration behind my submission for Illustration Friday's topic "small". Enjoy!

Illustration Friday - Free

Hi all...

This week, I was walking downtown when I noticed a pair of men's underwear on the sidewalk. Have you ever seen this before? (This was not my first time). I always wonder what the story is behind why they are there.

Another good story would be "Where did they end up?" This was my idea behind this week's Illustration Friday topic, "Free".

Merry Christmas!

Illustration Friday - Broken


Hi everyone,

I was determined to do a good-spirited piece this week. When I saw the Illustration Friday topic is "Broken", I wasn't sure if I could pull it off.

Arial vs Helvetica

Many people assume these two typefaces are the same...Far from it!

Arial is little more than a shameless impostor.

Check out Mark Simonson's "The Scourge of Arial" and "How to Spot Arial".

Let's 'keep it real' everyone...Use Helvetica!

Illustration Friday - Remote

Hi everyone!

This week's Illustration Friday topic was "Remote". The first thoughts that came to me were images from the movie "Deliverance"...

Understanding Logos

Below is a link to a great document on logos and the logo development process. As a Graphic Designer, I often find myself explaining the importance of a well put-together logo to potential clients. Thanks smashLAB!

Chad Geran's Superblog!

Hi everyone - Welcome to the brand new Supergood Illustration & Design Blog!

I hope to get new work, cool links, rants or news up at least once a week. We'll see how it goes.

I chose to start a blog so I would have an informal place to post work that may not fit with that which is on my website -
www.supergood.ca. As well, I'd like to give people an opportunity to give any feedback they may have.

So, bookmark this site and check it out often!


For my first post, here are some prints I did for my fiancĂ©e’s sister's baby's room...(that's a mouthful!). Enjoy!

Chad
