For Lab 4, we worked diligently on creating business cards with monograms. It was my introduction to Adobe Illustrator and an assignment I enjoyed very much. I learned how to adjust the size, shape, and color of individual letters, and bend them to create an aesthetic monogram. I had always wondered how business’ created their logos and this lab gave me an insider view of how that was done. Although I struggled at first adapting to Adobe Illustrator, I learned to prefer it over Photoshop due to its seemingly easier navigation for the user. The thing I spent that most time on in this project was figuring out a smooth way to make all three of my initials look symmetrical and come together as one large logo, well all three letters still were easily identified.
In Lab3 we focused on the different fonts that are used in the graphic design worlds, including what’s easier to read and what looks better on a computer, and which fonts are appropriate at which times. We learned from the video posted in class as well as with the hands on nature of the assignment. The fonts we used are from google fonts, and were downloaded to the computer; however I had trouble downloading the fonts onto my computer, I still was able to use a Sans Serif font that was reccomended.
In Lab 2 we learned how to get rid of backgrounds of a picture in the photoshop app. We learned different styles and methods such as the lasso and magic pencil features on the Adobe photoshop app. This is useful in putting other images over backgrounds that may be different from the original image.
