About Me

Hiya, My name is Wendy Escamilla, a Freshman here at Bradley University. I am currently a Game Design Major also interested in pursuing Game Art. Some things about me are that I love creating things, whether it's painting, drawing, journaling, or random DIY found on Pinterest. I enjoy devoting time and work to projects because the result, in the end, is always satisfying to me. Even if I mess up in the process, there is always something to learn from to improve the second time. My interests in games come from the happiness I get from sharing an experience with someone. Whether it's with my siblings, family, or an online community. It's beautiful to see people from all backgrounds joined for a shared love for a game. I hope to be able to make something of such an impact. I inspire to be able to spread positivity and help someone in any way.

Featured Projects

The 88 students in IM 150, a design fundamentals course, were assigned a poster series in which each student chose a topic that was of personal interest, an exciting event or socially important issue. The students rocked the house; seen in the totallity, the students’ diverse voices and beautiful final solutions are a symphony of visual communication. In this attached selection, of many other excellent poster projects, the various aspects of the rubric are exemplified. The students were tasked to design an eye-catching design experience, which would be viewed from a distance, with the following criteria: • Create a clever concept and call to action (see if you can find the concept in the Chi-Town Blues Festival Poster) • Make connotative art which referenced the visual venacular of the subject matter applied with the elements of design (shape, line, texture, space, size, value), or drawing skills. • Adhere to a a grid (and consider breaking the grid). • Communicate to a specific audience. • Select a palette from the color harmonies. • Organize all of these elements into a dynamic relationship that activatesthe principles of design (balance, contrast, emphasis, focal point, rhythm, unity, and the Gestalt theory). • Finally, they applied their work to an environmental wall—an expresion of place—which supported the original concept, and sustained communication with the audience.
