Today I made these in illustrator:

I know it seems like a lot of nothing, but I'm really proud of them! I made these in illustrator - no bevel filters or anything. There's not really anything like that in illustrator that will not rasterize the image. Plus, I think if you can make things yourself they often come out better and faster than when you tried to use filters and edit them.

I had to recreate something for work and so I started to make the circle thing. I actually built it slightly differently. They were using what looked like a drop shadow bevel, and probably created it in PS. I decided to make it more shiny overall.
Without any help from any tutorials or what have you, I just used my knowledge of light and shadow from drawing and applied it to these buttons. I think they came out fantastic! :D
I know people make much more amazing things with illustrator. I've even made some pretty intricate things. I've never used illustrator to create something with this much depth before though, and it just made me very excited. :P

To remind myself how to make things like this and for anyone who might find it useful I made a tutorial. )

Here is my display from Portfolio Show. I got the pictures today. :) It did look better in person because the light in the pastry case gets messed up from the camera flash. I have horrible hair. T_T So glad I got it cut, but a little late for pictures.

In case you didn't know already, I did a bakery theme. I tracked down a pastry case (left) and on the table I have baking trays with my business cards and resumes laid out like baked goods. I served cupcakes and brownies too. :P

To complete the cafe/bakery thing I brought a small little round table and chairs to put my computer on. (Internet cafe! :P)

This is a brochure with a die cut. This is the digital file mostly because I couldn't get a good photo with the glossy paper. Anyway, I added shadows in photoshop to show where the folds are and the die cut. Click to see larger- LJ cut- see the rest of brochure )
