Things you learned this semester: In the world of photoshop I have learned how select and mask, blend, create layers to edit elements in a document, and how to imply the good design principles that creates a connection with the audience and the message of the project.
Revisions: I fix my about me assignment I didn’t have enough time to do it right the first time. I fixed my creative self portrait, open house project, and charity event project.
Project overview:For this project i had to find a client to do design work for. I found out a coworker is a cake decorator and she needed some help with a flier.
Message/Audience: The message is for anyone who love desserts just as much as she loves to make them. The message is simply “everything is just so magically delicious.”
Things you learned: When working with a client and they are paying for the service, they should have all the information to provide you with. I didn’t get any pictures from my client because of the quality of the pictures.
Meeting with instructor: I originally have a completely different design from what you see. The design i had didn’t meet his guideline of principles for design so he suggested i change the look for the most part. He told me so go more simple.
Project overview: I created a self portrait. I needed to take a creative picture of myself, then follow a creative tutorial online to edit- along with other portrait editing stuff I’ve learned. I wasn’t told to just to photograph something creative, but to add particularly creative edits. Then take it and print it professionally off campus.
Things you learned:Using the liquefy tool came in pretty handy. I enjoyed using it
Meeting with instructor: He showed me how to use the liquefy tool
Photo Information: I took the photos sunday afternoon in front of the college center.
Project overview: This Project we had to take high quality pictures of any subject. This one flower caught my eye and I to catch every angle I could find. I then used Lightroom to edit my pictures and Photoshop to create the collage. The watermark with my initials was created in Illustrator.
Message/Audience: My message is “Find a subject and call it out!” Red and Green is my favorite color scheme because I love how the red contrast with the deep green behind it.
Things you learned:I learned how to use Lightroom. This was the first time I ever used the Adobe software and its was pretty easy to use, thanks to the tutorial my professor provided to the class.
Meeting with instructor: Professor Pingel told me to use gutters and add a texture to the collage.
