In this project, I learned the different ways to format a web page. I learned how to make a page look professional and use different color schemes.
I thought this project was easy. Most of the web text was already laid out correctly for me, all I had to do was fill in the text. Changing the styles and colors was the only challenging part of the project.
The challenging part was changing the style and colors. The most difficult thing was adding a shadow-box element. This allowed making the text boxes to look as if they were floating.
My submission could be improved by using a more creative logo or changing the colors to look more professional.
An improvement would be making it have more freedom on how the page layout was, yes this would be harder but I think this would be more creative and original.
I could apply this knowledge by knowing how a professional resume looks and feels. This would help me in the future by looking professional while I trying to get into a job.
The color scheme of Spotify the app really inspired me with my colors. I prefer everything to be darker because it looks cleaner and is easier on the eyes.
I learned how to use a new tool in Photoshop. It allows text to follow a set path. This makes it a lot easier to make arcs and letters to follow a path.
It was easy for me personally, I have a lot of experience with Photoshop though, so for someone new to Photoshop, I think it would be challenging.
What was challenging for me was making the guy in the back look as if he was looking through a hole. I had to use a lot of shading and make the colors correctly match the theme. The guy in the photo in the back is also me, which I think is cool.
My submission could be improved by making the inside have more complexity in it rather than the simple style, also the picture on the right side could’ve been better. The print out could’ve been better too because I did not use CMYK colors.
I think the project is perfectly fine the way it is. It provides a challenge for beginners and a good way to improve skills for experienced users.
I would definitely use the text to a path tool in the future, I wish I knew about it earlier it would make life a lot easier, especially for not perfectly round object to trace around.
The movie “IT 2” inspired me a lot, especially for the colors and theme. I liked the creepiness and theme the movie you feel so I wanted the card to express that too.
