Mustache Bash

This one is a little old, but I had so much fun doing it that I had to include it. Searching for interesting mustache images was a blast! One of those 'staches is famous, can you tell which one?

Michelle's Cake - Design Only


This is the design for Michelle's birthday cake. We took this to the bakery where they will scan it like they do with photo cakes. I'm really hoping that this works out well, and that the colors turn out!

First Birthday Invite - word cloud


This is the front of the invitation to my daughter's first birthday party. It was such a nice change of pace to use feminine colors and fonts. Chick (the font with the flowers) is currently one of the novelty fonts I'm most amused by. I've also designed her cake in this style (to be printed at the bakery) and a matching banner. Pictures of those will follow!

Partylite Flyers

These are a few flyers I made for some Partylite parties.
I've included two because they were such different flyers.

One is more eyecatching:



And the other has much more detailed content:

Nicole Part 1





These are some photos I did for Nicole two years ago. I'll be shooting her senior photos very soon, and I look forward to comparing those shots to these.

Sister to Bee


This is pretty self-explanatory. =)

MGD64

I was asked to come up with a poster to promote Miller Genuine Draft 64 at a bar. Since this is a low-calorie beer, I wanted to portray the message that drinking MGD64 would help you be thin.

I asked both men and women who they thought the target of this ad was. The interesting thing was the men thought it was directed at men, and the women thought it was directed at women. The women thought it gave the message of "drink MGD64 to have this kind of body." The men thought that it gave the message of "drink MGD64, get a sexy girl."

Ruth






I'm transferring over a few photos from my previous blog onto this one.
These are some images from Ruth's senior portrait session.

Collage Layout

This is a collage layout I did for a graduation party.
I've blacked out all of the images, since they weren't mine.

I used a corkboard image for the background, and created a thumbtack to "pin" the images up. I put a white stroke around all of the images, to give the look of some lab prints.

The most fun was deciding how the pins would go if I were making this board in real life.

Rock On, Oshkosh


This one is rather simple, but I really like the way it turned out. I enjoy seeing the signs in the market!

There's an music event coming up in Oshkosh. Miller Lite doesn't have sponsorship, so this is what we did without using the name.

Welcome!

Welcome to the Ziemer Designs blog.
This is the new home for all of my portfolio work.
I'm a graphic designer and photographer. I currently make signs for bars and convenience stores, so I'll put putting up several samples of those. But I'll also be putting up some photos I'm particularly proud of, as well as some designs I've done on the side.

Thanks for stopping!
