This week I have experimented with providing changes to some of my older projects and I have made some minute changes. The Tony Romo photo I experimented with incorporating it into my Schedule project from last week but I did not like the appearence of it. My Limitless poster showed to me how much I have improved with the pen tool since then as well. In the Limitless poster I had thought about changing the pill bottle and adding a prescription label to it which I might still try to accomplish.
This week I have finished up my Dallas Cowboys 2012 Season Schedule this week and this is probably my favorite project I have ever completed. This project was a fun project to do because this is my favorite NFL team. Some of the design techniques I have previously learned in class and in the online tutorials I have completed. The color scheme is what makes this project in my mind I chose the team logo’s colors that really brought this project together. I liked how I used a somewhat rough texture base to some of the text and background image, which is something that I like to incorperate in many of my projects. I also used some easy to read text for the schedule itself so that it doesn’t create any problems in that area.
This week I have started to edit the Dallas Cowboys Star Logo and I am in the process of making it look more rugged and eye appealing. Hopefully when I complete this project it will add a new dimension to the design that I am working on and provide the ruggedness that is needed. This has been a very entertaining project for me as it has brought upon challenges and has the potential to be one of the better designs I have ever created.
This tutorial teaches about how to make simple adjustments to photos. This makes photos more extravagant and can make photos more “eye appealing” which is always the goal in designing. This one of the most helpful tutorials I have ever used because it can make photos look so much more appealing. This will help me with future projects because it has taught me more about how to add contrast to a photo. This also can make a photo look more interesting and may grab the attention of your intended audience better.
This tutorial was simple but elegant and had some major upside to my project and projects to come. This tutorial adds depth and style to anything and gives it a rugged look that is needed in many designs. This design has a limitless amount of upside in potential in designing you look for detail and sometimes imperfection to a design and that is exactly what this design does. In many designs imperfection is exactly what the designer may want to capture and show to his audience.
In this past week I have begun to try a new form of designing in which I have never attempted before. I am going to make a grunge design. I am very excited to get this project completed because I would really like to incorporate the Dallas Cowboys Logo into this design. I would like to make this design look very rugged and very eye appealing.
I have started a Act of Valor movie poster which I am very excited to complete. This project will use the Navy Seal logo as I have started to create it.
I may change the Act of Valor text however.
