"Typography is mostly an act of dividing a limited surface."

Class: Digital Design ToolsProgram: Adobe Photoshop and Adobe InDesignSize: 11 x 17 inchesProject: Your task is to produce illustrations for a short story/article/essay to be published in a fictional magazine and to create design solutions for two different spreads for the same article. You are designing two different solutions targeting two different audiences: hip teens; a conservative crowd; and/or an upper-class sophisticated readership.
This spread was meant to target hip teens.
I really had a lot of fun playing with the typography on this spread. And even though I am not the biggest fan of Photoshop I enjoyed applying the snake skin to the lady’s face. Working with high quality images in Photoshop really makes a difference.
Note: The colors aren’t supposed to be that bright. The files are fine, but Tumblr for some reason is altering the colors. Also, low-res images have been uploaded on purpose.
This layout is one of two designed for this project.The other can be found here.

I have never before designed a magazine spread, and though it was nerve racking (being my final project and all), it was actually a lot of fun. I struggled with finding fonts though I’m sure that will get easier as I gain more working experience.

Class: Digital Design ToolsProgram: Adobe PhotoshopSize: 11 x 17 inchesProject: Alternate assignment to Photoshop book work. Create a poster promoting digital literacy and the MAC 911 Workshop. Only Photoshop must be used.
This is the first piece I have designed entirely by myself that is being printed! It’s also my first poster. The Media Arts Department will be hanging it around campus next term to promote the MAC 911 Workshop.
Creating all the icons was fun. Having to do the layout in Photoshop was not. So many layers…

Class: Intro to DrawingMedium: India Ink on Medium Brown Strathmore Charcoal PaperSize: 12.5 x 19 inchesProject: Using your medium of choice, capture a still life on medium grey/brown paper. Use a full value range
I love working with India Ink. This paper isn’t the greatest for ink though. It buckled really bad, but now that the piece is done I think the warped paper adds a bit to the texture of the piece. I think the shadow beneath the pine cone needs to go a bit darker…

Class: Digital Design ToolsSoftware: Adobe Photoshop and Adobe InDesignProject: Create a triptych of related images. Using images you capture with a digital camera, or licensed images created by someone else, you will edit them for color and composition in Photoshop. Once created in individual Photoshop files, you will assemble/present the images using the page layout program InDesign. Your finished piece will be a single-page presentation of all three images. The images should relate to each other and have some kind of combined significance as a whole, though the extent of that significance is up to you.
I chose to go the licensed photo route. One image was cropped, edited, and rearranged to create my composition. I am not new to Photoshop or InDesign, but I had a lot of fun with it.
