GD1: Next Project = Vector Self Portrait

While you are planning/working outside of class on the Creative Font…

Check out the next project for Graphic Design 1 (and 2).

Choose your image wisely and feel free to edit in Photoshop 1st.  Need to crop/adjust contrast/etc?

Show the viewer ONLY what they NEED to see!  (Also makes your job easier, too!)

You can experiment with Live Trace and Effects – but YOU WILL NEED TO USE THAT PEN! (expand and ungroup, too!)

Starting in on the Creative Font

Make a sketch of your plan for the creative font.

Include:

  • at least 1 detailed letter (what will these look like?!)
  • sketches of letter placement
  • list materials/equipment needed

Add to your sketchbook tab.

*If you are unsure about what you want to do still… do more than 1!

Some Housekeeping Items…

  • Brainstorming next project – Creative Font – post to sketchbook tab

then…

  • Poster Design – email Mr. Mingian (miniganj@weston.org) a draft JPG for feedback!
  • Class App – email me (ciccoloc@weston.org) one Ai document with all completed apps!
  • Composite Portrait – email me (ciccoloc@weston.org) your JPG when complete
  • Anything else unfinished???  Need to post?

Pen Tool Practice

Feeling like you need a little more time to figure out the pen tool?  It is a tricky one!  CLICK ON THE JPG TO MAKE IT BIGGER, then drag it directly into Illustrator.  Try to complete a few.  It has some helpful hints.  Pentool-exercise
