Brochure

Description: A Brochure Project to show duplex folding

Process (Programs, Tools, Skills): I started with Adobe

Illustrator to make my logo. After that it was a continual back and forth process between Adobe InDesign and Adobe Photoshop as I cropped the pictures I had chosen and then placed them in the brochure. I then moved on to placing the text in the brochure and then wrapping the text around the photos. Then I lined everything up and folded in the strategically placed gaps marking each panel.

Message: Come to this place!

Audience: Everyone, especially those looking for outdoors or unique vacation experiences

Top Thing Learned: How to use duplex folding to make a brochure.

Color scheme and color names: None (impossible to do with

this variety)

Title Font Name & Category: Tribeca Copy Font Name & Category: Myriad Pro

Flier

Description: A black and white flier for the Graduate Leadership Conference.

Process (Programs, Tools, Skills): This was a great experience

for me in making this flier. I looked all around on me, on campus, and

even online as I tried to come up with a design for this flier. I ended up trying a design that I hoped would give diagonal balance and flow.

From the critiques I got, I understood that I was on the right path but there was going to be needed adjustments if I wanted to achieve this. I tried to make it bold enough that graduate students would see

that this is an opportunity for them to come to a convention that will

benefit them after graduation. Getting my text boxes to work was a struggle during this assignment. I spent a lot of time trying to find

the right font and spacing to make sure that I did not get any hyphens

(which there were plenty). I finally found the balance and there was

much rejoicing. I used Engravers MT as my font for the title, and

them Microsoft Sans Serif for the body copy. I knew that these two would be a good combination on the poster.

I did enjoy doing this project. I tried to keep it simple enough while

shooting for a good design. I hope this flier is both visually appealing

and acceptable to those who see it. Message: Come to the Graduate Leadership Conference Audience: Graduate Students

Color scheme and color names: Greyscale

Top Thing Learned: How to use Adobe InDesign.

Montage

Description: A collection of pictures blurred and blended together to create a visual message

Process (Programs, Tools, Skills, Steps taken while

designing): I started by looking for a good rocky background. I liked the idea of a granite background and experimented with a few, but then I found this one and really liked the blue-grey shade. Then I found the picture of Christ and put Him in the

middle. Then I went to my Facebook page and chose pictures depicting different scenes or aspects of my life. Using the mask and paint tools I blurred all the images into the rock it the back, but kept Christ’s face as the most distinct and solid thing on the page. I then used a font that I downloaded on the internet for my

text. I had to brighten the whole thing afterward because the first

print came out really dark.

Message: No matter how many parts of your life you have, they should stand on the rock of Jesus Christ. Audience: Everyone really.

Top Thing Learned: The blur tool. I liked that I could blend things together in the same picture to create the same theme.

Web Page

Description: A sample web page created using HTML and CSS Process (Programs, Tools, Skills): I used TextWrangler to

format and write my HTML and CSS pages. What I didn’t know how

to do I would look up on Google to find the right formats and codes. I also used Photoshop to edit my image and upload a JPEG file to this

post. Message: Here is a law firm Audience: People looking to hire a lawyer Top Thing Learned: How to code using HTML and CSS Color scheme and color hex: Split complementary (Brown and blue)

Title Font Families & Category: Palatino Linotype Copy Font Families & Category: Arrus BT Changes made to the CSS: I changed fonts, colors, headings, and biggest of all was the original background. I coded the image into the CSS document and then deleted all other background codes, leaving me with just the image of a wooden texture. I changes spacing and width of the text and even the font size in some places. All in all it was a great experience and I hope to do more like this in the future.

Event Ad

Description: Poster for made-up event using themes from original source (meaning I tried to replicated older Super Mario themes)

Process (Programs, Tools, Skills): Microsoft Word Mac 2011.

Used Shape and Text Boxes, Color Search, and import image.

Message: I kept a simple message, which is “Come to the Event”

Audience: All fun lovers, mostly a slightly younger audience

Color scheme and color names: Split Complementary: Brick-

Peach-Red-Yellow-Blue

Top Thing Learned: Using Microsoft Word is different from using Adobe products. Keeping passion in my work helped me to have more fun making this project

Scanned images used, sources, original sizes, location of

scanner used: I scanned one image. Mario from a puzzle box. Original size 3×3 in. Scanned in Spori 107 using Epson Perfection V500 Photo

Business Card

Description: A layout of a professional-style business card showing the front and back of the card.

Process (Programs, Tools, Skills): I used Adobe Illustrator for

the entire process. I went through a few different sketches before settling on a logo comprising of my initials resting on a gavel. I spent much time putting the letters together before then moving on to the gavel comprising of two circles and giving a light enough gradient on

the stroke to give it the look of a gavel. Then I worked on the texts

keeping in mind to make the name look formal and dignified. With

contact information and the color scheme in order all I had to do was copy and paste it in business cards. Finally I found a picture of scales to make transparent and add as watermark.

Message: This is a law firm. Audience: Anyone looking to do business and hire a lawyer

Top Thing Learned: I definitely learned how to better use the pen tool. The hardest part of this assignment was stepping out of

my comfort zone and trying to manipulate two letters to fit together. That was tough and took me a couple of hours to finally get it in a

good shape with no longer ends or awkward lumps in the curves. It required a lot of the white arrow tool and anchor point tool also.

Imaging

Description: A photo created using Adobe Photoshop to correct errors or unwanted material in the photo.

Process (Programs, Tools, Skills): I used Adobe Bridge and

Adobe Photoshop for this entire process. After I had imported my photo into Photoshop I got to work on the boarders. I used the shape tools to layer the rectangles upon each other until they were they way

  • I wanted them. The biggest challenge was the piano. In the original

photo there was a reflection in which one could see the guitar case,

my computer bag, and me. I used the marquis and paint tools to get

the piano to be polished, but have no reflection. Then I added my text.

  • I looked for a good music quote and decided this quote by Bono (I

enjoy U2′s music) since this would help my message. The challenge was finding a Modern-Serif Font. It took a few minutes of searching

and experimenting but I found one I liked. Lastly I spent a few

minutes using the Marquis tool to fix the light in a couple of places

where it was too bright and would take away from the picture.

Message: My message is about the impact and importance of music. Combined with warm colors to give it an inviting and nostalgic view.

Audience: Any and all music lovers.

Top Thing Learned: The photo is everything. If it does not catch the eye it will not be seen. Visual appeal is everything.
