Project 1: Layout

  1. What did you learn? In this project, I learned how to create a story essentially with no words and only pictures. I also learned how to create unique designs only using primitive shapes like circles and squares to get the point of the story across.
  2. What was easy? The easy part of this project was picking a story to work with since it was a simple nursery rhyme.
  3. What was challenging? The challenging part of this project was arranging the elements in such a way so that it would get the point of the story across. I was constantly arranging the shapes and resizing them to see what looked the best. It was mostly experimentation which made it more difficult.
  4. How could your submission be improved? I could improve my submission by making it more complex. I know simple is sometimes better but I still feel that the elements in a few of the slides are lacking.
  5. How could I improve the assignment for the next class? Honestly this project was very good to start off with and I don’t think there’s anything to correct.
  6. How might you apply your knowledge in future assignments or work scenarios? I could apply the knowledge I gained from this project to make a storyboard of my idea for a project. I could also use the knowledge I gained to create more abstract work in the future.
  7. How did a specific reading or video inspire or help you? Something that inspired me was the images I found of google when I searched up the Jack and Jill nursery rhymes. I thought to myself, how could I make these scenes simpler for my project, and then I just started experimenting.
