Stationery
Description:

Stationery designed for my mother in mind.


She loves to do genealogy so I created a logo
just for her based on the project objectives, and design principles.

Programs: Adobe Illustrator & InDesign


Date: 06.13.2015
Course: Communications 130 Section 15
Instructor: Emily Kunz
Objectives:

Create original logo to fit a company or personal image using


Illustrator and InDesign without using photos or live trace. Apply rules
of typography, and keep design simple with plenty of white space.
Apply contact information without using parentheses/hyphens.
Use logo to design stationery.

Process:

Sketching was the first step of this project as I created a logo. Thinking of a
family tree, and the strength in oak trees, I used the pen tool in Illustrator
to create the leaf image based on photos of oak leaves. My mothers name
is Georgia, and she is a genealogist so I combined the two first letters,
G for the logo. I searched for just the right font that looked like an acorn
and then use the pen tool again to create an acorn cap for the G. The
finished logo was applied as a letterhead and watermark for the stationery.

Business Card
Description:

A business card designed for my


mother in mind. She loves to do genealogy so
I created a logo just for her based on the project objectives,
and design principles.

Programs: Adobe Illustrator & InDesign


Date: 06.13.2015
Course: Communications 130 Section 15
Instructor: Emily Kunz
Objectives:

Create original logo to fit a company or personal image using


Illustrator and InDesign without using photos or live trace. Apply
rules of typography, and keep design simple with plenty of white
space. Apply contact information without using parentheses and
hyphens, and using periods for professional appearance. Use logo to
design business card.

Process:

Sketching was the first step of this project as I created a logo. Thinking of
a family tree and the strength in oak trees I used the pen tool in Illustrator
to create the leaf image based on photos of oak leaves. My mothers
name is Georgia, and she is a genealogist so I combined the two first
letters, G for the logo. I searched for just the right font that looked like
an acorn and then used the pen tool again to create an acorn cap for
the G. The finished logo was applied to a business card with repeating
elements to mimic the stationery project.

Web Page
Description:

A Web page designed with my mother


in mind. She loves to do genealogy so I created
a Web page just for her based on the project objectives, and
design principles.

Programs: Adobe Illustrator & InDesign


Date: 06.27.2015
Course: Communications 130 Section 15
Instructor: Emily Kunz
Objectives:

Size and optimize an original logo as a .png for a web page.


Write description of the creative process for logo and how it
appeals to audience in 200 words. Acquire a working knowledge of
HTML and CSS, and apply CSS styling to HTML to compliment the
logo design. Use color picker to select complimentary colors for the
Web page from the logo. Capture quality screen shot of Web page.

Process:

I used the logo as a basis for the Web page project and with the eye
dropper tool I selected complimentary Hex colors to define the Web
page background and text using CSS to style the HTML. I ensured plenty
of white space for a non-cluttered design. Using h1 HTML I defined the
headers, and used padding in CSS to give the appropriate margins.

Logo

Description:

Logos designed based on my dream Web site.


I wanted to create a logo to use as my brand
when my Web site is complete. It is based on painters and
poets looking for inspiration within the showcased photos I take.
The design was created within the parameters of the project objectives,
and design principles.

Programs: Adobe Illustrator


Date: 06.06.2015
Course: Communications 130 Section 15
Instructor: Emily Kunz
Objectives:

Create three appealing, and completely different, original logos.


Seek ten different peoples opinions about which logo is the most
pleasing to them. Use only Illustrator tools to draw logos with no
per-fabricated flares, symbols, photos, or lives trace. Refine one
selected logo with color variations.

Process:

The first stage of the project was spent sketching ideas for various logos.
I created 3 different designs in Illustrator using repetition in shapes and
colors using the pen tool and grouping properties. Design principles such
as typography rules and alignment were also used. I petitioned 10 different
people to vote on their favorite finished logo, and then created color
variations of the logo that received the most votes.

Event Ad
Description:

An event add created from the idea of the


Polar Bear plunges done in the Boise area as a
fund raiser for the community. A magazine photo of a Polar bear was the
focal point for the Ad.

Programs: Scanner, Windows.


Date: 05.16.2015
Course: Communications 130 Section 15
Instructor: Emily Kunz
Objectives:

Comprehend how pixels and inches work together.


Find, scan and import a high-quality image to create a fullbleed Event Ad. Choose color schemes that work well with your
message and audience. Utilize only Word design features.

Process:

I scanned an image of a Polar Bear which gave me the idea of a Polar


Bear plunge fund raiser. I utilized the word tool to take out background
so that only the polar bear and snow showed through. Then I brought
the image forward to come into, and face the body copy, which was in a
contrasting blue than I chose for the page back ground color. I chose a
white title and body copy to tie into the white polar bear, with darker blue
for the web links in the same hue. Body copy was aligned with title and
subtitle (vertical and horizontal), as well as with other lines of body copy.
The Poem was aligned to the left of the text box with body copy above
the bear. Leading in the paragraphs is consistent.

Brochure
Description:

A brochure based on a fictitious company


that rents out cats as shoe warmers. It features
images of cats warming shoes which lends to audience appeal. It also has
its own original logo to brand the company.

Programs: Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign.


Date: 07.11.2015
Course: Communications 130 Section 15
Instructor: Emily Kunz
Objectives:

Set-up and align a two-sided, folded document. Create an


original logo, and utilize four quality images, and use them
in brochure. One image needs to clipped in Photoshop, and text
wrapped in InDesign. Write 250 words of original copy with headers
and sub-headers to three paragraphs. Trim for full bleed ad print in
duplex (two-sided) color.

Process:

After sketching some ideas I used the ellipse, pen, and spiral tools in
Illustrator to create a logo based on cats as shoe warmers. I also used
the Arch tool to manipulate a path for the Company name inside
the logo. I chose an offset, vertical fold brochure style with a Split
Complementary color scheme of indigo, teal, and orange. A curly tail
was created to depict an old stove-top element, and was repeated
throughout the design. Typography rules and other design principles
were applied.

Montage
Description:

An inspirational montage made by the


blending of two or more images, the use of
typography, filtering, color scheme, and contrast.

Programs: Photoshop
Date: 05.30.2015
Course: Communications 130 Section 15
Instructor: Emily Kunz
Objectives:

Unify a layout with a consistent them and dominant spiritual


message. Utilizing masks and filters in Photoshop blend two
or more quality images together to show advanced skills with
multiple elements. Apply typography principles with text of
varying sizes.

Process:

I sketched a rough draft of how I wanted my project to look based on


one image of the Alps. After downloading three images and applying
some adjustments, I copied two of them over to the Alps image pallet.
One image was flipped so it faced the same way as the other image.
A mask was applied to these two images and then after reducing the
opacity I brushed the images to blend the pixels into the Alps pallet.
Text was applied using typography rules and color scheme consistent
with the final image.

Photodesign
Description:

Utilizing photography and imagery I


created a poster. The photo provided the color
scheme and helped show-off the Wheels of Time theme.

Programs: Photoshop
Date: 05.23.2015
Course: Communications 130 Section 15
Instructor: Emily Kunz
Objectives:

Use basic photography skills and utilize original photographs


to create a color scheme to incorporate a layout. Use a digital
camera for quality images then download them to Photoshop.
Adjust image levels, saturation, color balance, and use sharpen
tool on separate layers for non-descriptive editing. Size and crop
image to a 8.5x11 page and use layers to design text and graphic
elements to create a full-bleed margin poster.

Process:

After taking several photos I downloaded my selected image and


adjusted levels, saturation, color balance, and sharpening tool. I wanted
to bring out the oranges and purples in the image so I color balanced to
the desired pigmentation. After flattening the layers I moved image to
a 8.5X11 page. After creating the project I also included color swatches
in the image to depict a Big Split Complementary scheme. Circles were
used throughout the project for repetition.

Flier

Description:

Graduate Leadership Conference flier in


gray scale colors.

Programs: InDesign
Date: 05.09.2015
Course: Communications 130 Section 15
Instructor: Emily Kunz
Objectives:

Apply the design principles and use appropriate typography


to create a basic flier layout. Incorporate InDesign skills and
retrieve images and logo from predetermined links. Create a
project folder with image, logo, and InDesign document while
keeping links intact.

Process:

After creating four sketches of possible flier designs I chose one that
would be simple and clean-cut, and used it as reference as I recreated
it in Adobe InDesign. After placing some rectangle shapes on the flier, I
then plugged in the image I selected and provided by the class. I did this
next so I could eye-drop its more prominent colors into the flier boxes
already placed to bring in consistency and rhythm. Although the Image
seems to be the focal point its allure brings the audience eyes to the real
focus of the conference message in contrasting subtitles. I aligned much
of the flier contents to something else on the page, including body copy,
and broke up the main text to emphasize the message.
