Project 1 Reflection – 9/19/2023

My outline for my project frames.

My final outline of the project. Story of Jack and Jill.

First Frame: Jack and Jill.

Second Frame: Went up the hill

Third Frame: To fetch a pale of water.

Fourth Frame: Jack fell down.

Fifth Frame: Broke his crown.

Sixth Frame: And Jill came tumbling after.

1. What did you learn?

In our first project, we learned about Layout and the Gestalt theory. We discussed on how logos and storyboard on using: Enclosure, Similarity, Color, Repetition, Proximity, Closure, Continuation/Common Fate, Alignment, Figure/Ground, and Multistablity/Ambiguity. We also discussed on using the rule of thirds to line up our shapes and seeing if there was any “crimes” with the shapes. We did a storyboard with using Figma.

2. What was easy?

Some of it was easy. For me, doing the second, fourth, and fifth frame was easy to do as far as aligning the squares and using Jack to go up and falling down the hill with the arrows and breaking his crown using the figure/foreground.

3. What was challenging?

The challenging part of the project was outlining how to make Jack and Jill (that was one of the harder part of this project), doing the rule of thirds because, I’m not that good with Math and trying to have it inside the margins.

4. How could your submission be improved?

Do a lot more with outlining Jill so it can be easier for me to design her in the story frame.

5. How could the professor improve the assignment for the next class?

With a little more clarity, I could understand it better.

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

I would look back at the powerpoint presentations, class videos and relearn how I can make the project better.

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

What helped me was when Professor Dunkle showed everyone the examples from past students work that made it a little bit more clearer to me.
