Project 3-Metaphorical Design: Jerome J.

“Time Flies”

For this assignment, we had to present a metaphor by using imagery from manipulating images cleverly to represent chosen metaphor

What did you learn?

With this project, I’ve learned how to effectively capture a set of words or a phrase with an image. And, learned more about Gimp and it’s features of manipulating images.

What was easy?

The easy part was coming up with an idea for the image, “Time Flies” is a simple concept(at least to me) that could be represented very easily.

What was challenging?

There were many challenges in doing this project in comparison to the previous. However, the most challenging was using Gimp itself. For the most part I was very perplexed with the tools and how to use them effectively, in spite of that I’m still learning and got the project done.

How could your submission be improved?

My submission could have been improved by challenging my artistic mind and really pushing my imagination to it’s limits. By that I mean, exploring and experimenting with the shapes and colors like some of my fellow peers.

How could I improve the assignment for the next class?

I think you could improve the assignment for next class by maybe going over the program and demonstrating some of its features.

How might you apply your knowledge in future assignments or work scenarios?

I might apply my knowledge in future assignments or work scenarios by being more creative and selective of how I want to convey a phrase or sentence(Metaphor, simile, etc.) in the most effective and targeted manor to my audience.

How did a specific reading or video inspire or help you?

Honestly, my peers work really inspired me because it displayed how I could push my work to it’s limits. Plus, there work demonstrated things I could do in Figma that I thought I could not do before.

Project 2- Jerome J.

EXERCISE 2- COLOR SCHEMES

Desert- Split Complementary
Urban-Analogous
Extraterrestrial-Triad
Aquatic-Complementary

For this project, we learned about colors and as a result, had to express 4 main types of color patterns.

What did you learn?

I learned a lot about the significance of color and how it impacts how we feel and the reason and methodological choosing of certain colors in the real world. For example, in advertising. Additionally, I also the difference between warm colors(Red, Orange, Yellow, etc.) versus cool colors(Blue, Purple, etc.)

What was easy?

The easy part was coming up with the landscape itself because it was simple for me to navigate basic shapes to create a landscape.

What was challenging?

The most challenging part for me was trying to make sure colors blended well together and making sure I followed the color schemes we were given.

How could your submission be improved?

My submission could have been improved by challenging my artistic mind and really pushing my imagination to it’s limits. By that I mean, exploring and experimenting with the shapes and colors like some of my fellow peers.

How could I improve the assignment for the next class?

You could improve the assignment for next class by having us learn how to use Figma and Illustrator to create the illusion of 3D shapes to really push the boundaries and potential of our skills.

How might you apply your knowledge in future assignments or work scenarios?

I might apply my knowledge in future assignments and work scenarios by focusing more on color schemes and choices of color because each color influences an individual. Therefore, from learning how color impact’s us I can be more deliberate with picking colors for my next assignment or work scenario to express the full satisfactory of my work and/or assignment.

How did a specific reading or video inspire or help you?

Honestly, my peers work really inspired me because it displayed how I could push my work to it’s limits. Plus, there work demonstrated things I could do in Figma that I thought I could not do before. For example, making fish hooks is a prime one!

Project 1-Jerome J.

EXCERISE 1- GESTALT NURSERY RHYME

ABSTRACT
REPRESENTATIVE

For this project, I choose to portray “Twinkle, Twinkle, little star” through Gestalt princples.

What did you learn?

I learned a lot about the basic fundamentals of design. As a result, I never noticed that there were so many common principles being applied to famous brands and other companies that make their logos and brands encapsulating.

What was easy?

For me, what was easy was following the principles everything was pretty intermediate level of diffculty.

What was challenging?

What wasn’t challenging is the real question! However, jokes aside, the most challenging aspect was generating ideas of design to represent my nursery rhyme and apply to Gestalt’s principles.

How could your submission be improved?

My submission could have been improved by challenging my artistic mind and really pushing my imagination to it’s limits. By that I mean, exploring and experimenting with the shapes and Gestalt’s principles like some of my fellow peers.

How could I improve the assignment for the next class?

You can improve the assignment for the next class by maybe not making us just use black and white but exploring various colors and methods.

How might you apply your knowledge in future assignments or work scenarios?

I might not, but, will apply this knowledge in my future assignments or work scenarios because Gestalt’s principles really solidifies on the direction in making key art. For these reasons, I can apply this when I do other assignments or work scenarios to output quality art work.

How did a specific reading or video inspire or help you?

“Gestalt’s principles applied in design” by William Craig inspired me because when I was struggling to produce ideas for the project some of the things I’ve read and saw really advocated my brainstorming. Especially, with Figure Ground something I was struggling with duration of this project,
