Video Profile – John Potter – Florida Illustration, Art, Map Making
Florida Illustration – I just put together this little video that profiles me and my work. It isn’t just an exercise in narcissism. I wanted to make a little project to teach myself the fundamentals of Premiere Pro and After Effects. I still have a vast amount to learn, but this has been a great introduction and I think it’s a pretty good example of the kind of editing I would generally expect a client to need.
Please see my portfolio for examples of my work.
I do a diverse range of work, but map illustration/design and regular illustration account for over half of the work I do as Escape Key Graphics.
In addition to acquiring new clients and fulfilling their illustration and design needs I also maintain a corporate website using WordPress, create blog posts, maintain a social media presence and use email marketing to both acquire new clients and maintain my identity with existing clients.
Clients include ShowBoats, Yachts International, AroundTown and Southern Boating Magazines, The Wild Animal Sanctuary in Colorado, Flamingo Gardens, Dover International Speedway, the Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation, Treasure Cay Beach Hotel, Marina & Golf Resort and more. Also of note are illustrated map designs for boat shows including The Fort Lauderdale, Newport, Palm Beach and Miami International Boat Shows and many more.
Some Software Used: Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, Sketchup, InDesign, Acrobat, Kerkythea, Microsoft Office and WordPress
I am at a beginners level with Aftereffects and Premiere Pro as previously discussed.
Programming Used: HTML, CSS
