Pro 4 – Info-graphic

The main thing I learned over the course of this project was how to use Illustrator. This was a new program compared to photoshop which is what we primarily used for the semester. While there are some similarities between the programs, even the tools that carry over don’t act the same so it was really […]

Project 3 – Milk Carton

The main thing learned here was the way around illustrator. While much of it is the same or similar to photoshop, there are some serious differences as well. For me, the easiest things were the pen tool – as it is basically identical to photoshop, so I already had experience – and the image tracing. […]

Pro 2 Blog Post

The main thing I learned was various ways to both create and remove backgrounds. In addition, It was really fun to experiment with mixing different methods to achieve certain affects. The easiest thing was probably deciding on a general theme for this. I try to keep a general theme for most of my projects in […]

We learned the differences between serif and sans-serif fonts, how best to use type as a design tool, and how different fonts can affect how we see things. The easiest thing from the project this week was choosing what to use to […]

Project 3

Project 2

For this project, We started to work with color, as well as leaning the differences between not only RGB and CMY color, but also how the differences can affect our work. We also learned how to work with a color tool set to HSB, rather than a hex code. This allowed us to have more […]

Project 1

For the first project, the nursery rhyme I choose was little miss muffet, as I felt that it may have been better to start the first project with a rhyme that had a small story to it. Unfortuatly, I was so focused on both starting and finishing this roject, that I didn’t do any sketches, […]

Lab 0

This is supposed to be the first Lab, making sure I’m doing it right. Since I was just getting used to figma, I stuck with a simple pattern, and colors that I liked, and seemed to look nice together.
