ASSIGNMENT ONE (DOCUMENT BELOW) - BEAUTIFICATION - as discussed in class, during the introductory slideshow: Please save your course handout document in the 8.5 X 11 size (whether you're making it one page or two) and then print a copy for me! :)
ASSIGNMENT FIVE - FONT PERSONALITIES (DOCUMENT BELOW):
FONTS have their own personalities. Since most graphic design projects require some kind of text, most graphic designers have whole COLLECTIONS of fonts which they choose from for each project they undertake…
You have already started a collection of fonts in your My Documents folder. Please add to it today: Here is the list of fonts that you need to find. Please make a Word Document, and copy and paste the text in blue below into the document. Once you have found at least one font that fits each of these descriptions, print out the word in the font that you've found that has that "appearance". For example, you'll find a childish font and type the word CHILDISH in that font in the document. Please make sure your text is between 14 and 20 in size.
ASSIGNMENT SIX - CD COVERS (DOCUMENT BELOW): The measurements for your CD covers are as follows: Each side of the inside cover: 122 mm wide X 120 mm high (you can make these separately or do one piece joined, which is 244 mm wide and 120 high) The back cover: 138 mm wide X 120 mm high The end pieces: 7 mm wide X 120 mm high
Please bring your finished work to next class. We will be printing immediately.
Find at least ten examples (online or in real life, around the school or at home) that support what Molly Bang's "PICTURE THIS" book says about design. Some of these (from your notes) are:
-It is human nature, we associate things of similar colour, or similar shape, or similar texture. This is why repetition of one element is so effective to bring our eyes around the page. - Smaller objects appear to be farther away from us. Larger objects seem closer to the viewer. - Larger objects (or elements) seem more important than smaller ones. - Bright colours stand out more than dark colours. Contrasting colours (opposite sides of the colour wheel), put beside each other, make each other stand out MORE. - Smooth, flat, horizontal shapes give us a sense of calm, or stability. - Vertical shapes are exciting and active. - Diagonal shapes seem dynamic, even more active, and imply motion or tension. - Pespective (the illusion of space on a flat, two-dimensional surface) can be made by placing smaller objects high up on a page, and larger objects close to the bottom. - The center of a page is the most effective "center of attention"... but it does make it hard for viewers to explore the other areas of the composition.
