I'm Temo Morales, a Graphic Designer with a passion for creating meaningful and timeless designs.
Got the opportunity to work with Solid State. Turned out be a great experience. I got the opportunity to do some product photography for one of their solid-colognes. Solid State cologne is packaged in a pocketable metal casing that slides right into your coin pocket. It smells fantastic and last all day long.

Creation Music Company
I've had the opportunity to work with Creation Music Company (CMC) a couple of times. The projects included creating a custom website and promotional video. The company focuses on electric guitar musicians, from amateur to the touring players. CMC creates custom pedalboards, tube amps and as of 2018, stompboxes effects.
(2017) Pedalboard Layout Website The goal of the website is to help potential customers find the right pedalboard size. The custom website allows the user to interact with the website by recreating their own pedalboard. Each pedalboard and stompbox was created to scale so the user can be confident in the size they purchased. Graphics were provided by the client.
If the streamlined pedalboard sizes are not enough, the user can create a custom size pedalboard to fit their needs. The same goes with the stompboxes. There are thousands of effects with a variety of enclosures. Custom sized stompboxes can be created to become placeholders for less common effects.
The user can save the pedalboard they created and request popular stompboxes that are not available on the website.
(2016) Promotional Video This video was created to promote the companies flagship Heritage Series pedalboards. The video was used in social media ads and YouTube. (Update: This line of pedalboards have been discontinued)
Animated Videos These are a few examples of the animation videos I helped create for First Merchants Bank. Working alongside a creative director and copywriter we develop a concept, gather feedback from the client, and then execute the concept.

Swan Dermatology approached the agency (Dearing Group) for help with their rebrand to give their business a facelift (pun intended).
We helped them develop a clear brand position and then re-developed all of their marketing pieces starting with their logo and website. I was the lead designer in developing their new look and feel and collaborating with other designers in executing the subordinate pieces and marketing material.

Faith Biblical Counseling
Faith Church is a local church in the area that has worked with the Agency (Dearing-Group) for several years. As the lead designer, I was heavily involved in the conception, planning, and the execution of the creative piece. The goal was to create an eye-catching, modern and easy to read brochure. The brochure served a couple of purposes. The outer panels were meant to be a posteresque design to communicate the most important information at a quick glance. The inner panels focus on the information regarding the conference’s speakers and classes. This brochure is a five-panel barrel fold with a die cut to echo the triangular design.
I had the privilege to work with Nystrum Guitars in the infancy of the company. The company creates 100% custom guitars with each customer's own personal specs. Every part of the guitar is handcrafted from start to finish. Working with the company is a great example of networking through social media. I reached out to the owner through Instagram to ask about a guitar build. After a couple days of messaging back and forth, we decided to exchange services to help each other.
(2014-2016) Brand Identity The goal was to create the foundation of the Nystrum Guitars brand by creating logo, website, photography and promotional video. For the brand messaging, I emphasized the fact that each guitar was hand-crafted and tailored to meet each customer's requests. The slogan "Hand Crafted & Tone Tailored" was created to reflect the unique amount of time and care that was put in each guitar.
Logo The inspiration of the hand-script logo came from the hand-made quality of the guitars and having a symbolic signature of approval. The burst around the logo emulates sound (music) waves since each guitar is created to make sound (music).
Website The goal of the website was to highlight the craftsmanship of the guitars being created. The website also helped streamline the process of ordering a custom guitar with an order form, specs for specific models and an online store.
Video The guitars look amazing, but how do they sound? Guitar players obsess over their sound (tone) and being able to hear a guitar helps answer many questions. The video was created to show the quality of the sounds (tone) coming out of the guitars being crafted at Nystrum.
