Project 1: Letter

My Font: Process Pics/Sketches: The picture above was the first font I made, but I wasn’t liking the doubling up on one side, so I scratched this as a font possibility and moved on to the next. The picture above was the second font I started, but it felt very boring. Overall the letters came […]

Lab 3: Forest Lawn

This is blackletter font because it has extra decorations, as you can see, especially in the capital L, S, O, A, and K. This is a slab serif font because the letters are a little thicker but still have the feet at the ends of the letters. This is a script font because it mimics […]

Lab 2: Typehunting

The typography I found was the one used for “Hawaiian” on this shaved ice machine box.

The reason I’m referring to a shack is […]

Lab 1: Typehunting

The first typography I found was the one used for the word “donettes” on this packaging. It not only stood out to me because of the way it’s spelled but the choice of font and use of all lowercase letters. I like the choice of font because the roundness of each letter reminds me of […]

Project 2: Screensavers

Screensavers: Reflection: What did you learn? I learned how to use gradients to get rid of the edge of pictures that we do not want to see instead of using the pen tool. When using a gradient to incorporate a different photo or object into something that is already there, it makes it feel like […]

Lab 1-DMA 212

Compare your photo with the one from Unsplash. What are the differences? Why is one “better quality” than the other? The photo I got from Unsplash is of a boxer, and the photo I took is a picture of my boxer. The picture from Unsplash is the one with better quality. The reason being is, […]
