The cat was created by accident in an art class while I was trying to draw a hand with my eyes closed. So that's why it's called handcat.
My name is Andrés Canelones. I am a Graphic Designer currently majoring in Computer Science. I’m 22 years old. I live in the Republic of Panama. I have ample experience working in printed and online media, from brochures and books to fully responsive websites and simple PHP applications. I can also do a little video editing and animation.
The driving force behind the design of this yearbook was attempting to capture the daily experiences of students in the school, as well as the personal traits of each student. It is a very picture-centric design, with little to no text, and big, colorful photo collages that cover entire spreads. The students got to pose in almost any way they desired, imprinting their personality in these pages.
My involvement with the development of this site was halfway through its development. The school required someone who could take the work that was already finished and guide it towards release. I worked on fixing the site's responsiveness, the navigation, and gave it a completely new homepage, using tools like Bootstrap and JQuery.

I developed a comprehensive branding manual for the Spain-based jewelry brand Eugenio Lumbreras. It contains guidance on how to use the logo, typography, colors, packaging, business cards and even online signatures. You can check out the full manual here.
I worked with Alpha in creating a news site for their several community-focused newspapers from scratch. The main concept of the site is that it aggregates news from San Francisco, Bella Vista and Costa del Este, three very important sectors in Panama City. The site is built on Wordpress and features a fully responsive design. It also has many contextual features, the content and layout of the site changes slightly depending on which sector the news you're reading belong to. I also developed a full brand for the site and a launch campaign. You can check out the site here.
I have worked along Alpha Grupo Editorial since 2012 in the creation of their corporate branding. I have created their logo, business card, website, and logos for the company's different products. www.alphaeditorial.com
During my years working at FSU I created a launch campaign for the university's Master in International Affairs program. It included both printed ads and leaflets, as well as online advertisement pieces on facebook and other websites.
