Project 4: Stamps

  1. What did you learn? In project 4, I learned how to arrange elements in a grid system to make it look aesthetically pleasing for a stamp design. I also learned that pairing serif and san serif fonts look great in contrast with each other.
  2. What was easy? The easy part of this project was finding the images and materials to design the stamps with.
  3. What was challenging? I found it challenging to find different fonts that fit the theme of the project. I also found it challenging to arrange the pictures and the words so that they fit in the rule of thirds grid system.
  4. How could your submission be improved? My submission could probably be improved by making the fonts different colors or changing the colors of the squares completely.
  5. How could I improve the assignment for the next class? You could improve the assignment by letting the students choose a theme that is not a place. That way there are many more possibilities on what the stamps could look like.
  6. How might you apply your knowledge in future assignments or work scenarios? I could apply my knowledge to design graphics like the stamps in the future because I have a good grip on the rule of thirds.
  7. How did a specific reading or video inspire or help you? Something that helped me in this project was a reading on the rule of thirds. I also looked up some stamp designs on google to get an idea of what I would do.
