Tvorivu Design

Don't be too proud of this technological terror you've constructed.
The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the Force.

About Me

Welcome! I’m Corey, and this is my freelance portfolio and blog, Tvorivú Design. I’m a 23-year-old recent University of Texas Grad. As well as, a geek about pretty much everything relevant to design. Typography. Iconography. Flat Design. Responsive. You name it, I’m interested!

I created Tvorivú Design with the hopes of building my reputation, and displaying, only the greatest of the great, finished projects. Posting pictures on craigslist just doesn’t seem like enough. I have been in charge of running a few blogs in the past, and I am excited to finally have my own to tell you about all the interesting, useful, and relevant material that I consume, and how it applies to you!

This blog will be based on web and graphic design, and you will be able to find anything from tutorials to free design resources, once I get everything rolling.

It’s probably best to mention that I have had ZERO formal education in this field, though not by choice. I’m sure that my real world experience with clients and my experience in a corporate internship environment will prove to be more valuable than reading a textbook, which, unfortunately, I actually did for fun in picking up the whole design obsessions.

You also might be wondering where the name, Tvorivú, comes from. Well, it actually translates to “creative” in Slovak. What’s the deal with Slovak? It’s a beautiful country with beautiful people, everyone can appreciate that, so why not use it as a metaphor to my design aspirations?

I think that is going to about cover it for now! You can learn the rest once I actually get more posts up! But feel free to contact me at if you have any questions, comments, concerns, or suggestions. They are all welcome! Hope you are looking forward to this as much as I am!


Catch you on the flip side.

Digital ME

I began with a picture from my webcam, to ensure the most symmetrical position possible. -Not the most stunning picture, albeit. But it works! I then created a rough sketch in Adobe Illustrator, which was the basis of my work. From here I used the wonderful world of Illustrator to further shape and define each […]

Abuzeedo Fur Effect Tutorial and Subsequent Rogaine Rebrand

So this tutorial wasn’t really too difficult at all and the result is pretty cool. I didn’t follow his steps exactly. I first took a picture of my dog’s fur to use as my texture, which came out awesome, then I made my own brush as well. If I get time between now and finals […]
