Project 8 Brochure

Inside. This is before the cutting of the door shape.

Back and the doors.

Front

  1. Description:A gate brochure of Dungeons and Dragons
  2. Process (Programs, Tools, Skills): The process was done with mostly photoshop. I found an already made gate template and pretty much colored inside the lines. I had to us the rulers a lot to make sure things would match up on both sides. I pretty found a bunch of D&D pictures and applied them to the brochure. The inside has a blend of a background picture on a parchment template. I would put the doors up and make them transparent so I had a sense of  where to put my pictures and type. A lot of it was kinda tedious to be honest.
  3. Message: The message is to get people to play D&D
  4. Audience: Since it’s D&D it’s more for a geeky audience
  5. Top Thing Learned: How to actually do a brochure
  6. Color scheme and color names: Um grey and brown. This was a variation of colors.
  7. Title Font Name & Category: Dungeon (I downloaded it)
  8. Copy Font Name & Category: The same as above. I thought it looked appropriate
  9. Word Count of copy: According to Word it’s 311

  1. Description: This is a mock up website for something I had to come up with for class.
  2. Process (Programs, Tools, Skills): This was mostly used in CSS and HTML. The logo was done in Adobe Illustrator. In truth I had to go back and re go over past lessons to make sense of this stuff. Even with going over old lessons I still didn’t understand it. I actually had to base this off a already made template from the practice lessons.
  3. Message: I’m not even sure it has one. I didn’t have a website in mind save for just doing it. If this was a real website I might have thought of an actual idea.
  4. Audience: The made up audience would be the students at BYUI and COMM 130
  5. Top Thing Learned: How to kinda learn CSS and HTML. I put kinda because I can’t say I learned how to use these things but rather a very basic and I mean basic understanding.
  6. Color scheme and color hex(s): I used mostly shades of reds
  7. Title Font Families & Category: Verndana
  8. Copy Font Families & Category: New Times Romans
  9. Changes made to the CSS: Nothing. I seriously used an already made format and tried to base my things off of it. I even renamed some of them so I wouldn’t get confused while trying to follow the instructions of this project.
  10. Word Count: I’m not quite sure but I’m sure I’m over 200.

  1. Description: In truth this is just a fake business card. I just made a logo and wrote some stuff.
  2. Process (Programs, Tools, Skills): The tools are InDesign and Illustrator. I made the logo in Illustrator and transferred it into InDesgin. It was fairly straight forward.
  3. Message: The message is just a business card to a fake place I own. Nothing real.  
  4. Audience: I had in mind a nice class people idea.
  5. Top Thing Learned: Um? I’m not sure. I learned you could change the scaling into inches from something called 0p.
  6. Color scheme and color names: The card is blue and black but the logo is blue, green, and red. The writing is white.
  7. Title Font Name & Category: Rockwell Bold
  8. Copy Font Name & Category: Rockwell Standard

P5 Logo

  1. Description: This is for my buddies brewery from back home. Yes I’m very well aware this is BYUI and this is a logo for beer… However, I was having a hard time coming up with an idea. I tried making the B look like a bottle with some foam and cans.
  2. Process (Programs, Tools, Skills): This was done in Adobe Illustrator and to be honest I relied a lot on the shape tools. I had a dickens of a time trying to figure this stuff.
  3. Message: Well, it’s beer. Please don’t drink beer.
  4. Audience: People who drink I guess?
  5. Top Thing Learned: How to kind of use the program.
  6. Color Scheme and Color Names: Brown and white
  7. Title / Body Font Names & Categories: Stencil Standard Bold and Onyx 

Please once again I’m not trying to promote beer.

Montage Project

1. Description: This is from a Les Miserables quote from Javert in his song Stars. In my opinion the musical and the book has some good spiritual messages. So, I thought this would work out.

2. Process (Programs, Tools, Skills, Steps taken while designing): The process was pretty much how we did the first assignment in this project 4. Some masking and some text. Nothing really too complex. I had to find some pictures that worked I suppose.

3. Message: The message was that doing what is right will give you great things

4.Audience: Members and Les Miz fans

5. Top Thing Learned: How to use the masking tool

6. Filter / Colorization used and where it was applied: Didn’t have one

7. Color scheme and color names: 

8. Title Font Name & Category: Copperplate Gothic Bold

9. Copy Font Name & Category: Copperplate Gothic Light

10. Thumbnails of Images used: amazing-stairway-to-heaven Jesus-Picture-In-Heaven-With-Angels-Blowing-Trumpets

Project 3 Photo Design

P3TommyHuff

  1. Description: I was going for a Spaghetti Western movie poster look. I even out the text in Italian to make it seem more like it.
  2. Process (Programs, Tools, Skills, FOCUS principles): So, I actually took a picture with my cell phone. The design process was looking at a bunch of movie posters to get a feel of how I wanted it to look. I stuck with the more brown tones because the wild west is more dirty and dusty. Obviously I used Photoshop for the tools used. Most Spaghetti Western posters have the characters drawn or painted on to it so I tried making it look so. I used the one cut out brush tool to take out the people from other pictures. I would next turn the saturation to -80 and the brightness to 50. I would next turn the picture into a watercolor filter. Next I would take the picture and desaturate it, make a copy, invert the image, put it on color dodge, put it on a smart object, and finally put it on gaussian blur and increase the darkness to make it look like someone drew it. Next I would take the background and put it to multiply to blend the pictures into it. I then used a watercolor brush to make the streaks on the poster. Finally I used the fonts Vanilla Wale and Gringo Nights (I downloaded them for this assignment) for the text.
  3. Message: The message is just a western movie poster.
  4. Audience: The audience are western movie lovers or just movie lovers in general. I’m personally a big Spaghetti Western fan.
  5. Top Thing Learned: How to make people look like drawings.
  6. Color scheme and color names: I’d say brick and orange
  7. Title Font Name & Category: Vanilla Wale
  8. Copy Font Name & Category: Gringo Nights
  9. Thumbnail of original, unedited image inserted

Composition 2: Lead Room

I just mostly took pics of things in my apartment. Besides the outside one. I probably should’ve cleaned up but eh whatever. I didn’t have time to check out a camera for a few hours only so I had to use a cell phone camera. However, the focus pictures are done with a little better camera. I’ve also used Photoshop in the past but not too much of it. The things we had to do in this were all pretty new to me.

I wish I had some lights or something because the light in my apartment isn’t the best. Heck even with the outside pic the weather has been cloudy. I tried to get the sky though regardless. I’m sure these would be better with a better camera but I did what I could.

P2 Event Ad

Doc1-page-001

  1. Description: This is a flier for a fishing event and fund raiser.
  2. Process (Programs, Tools, Skills, FOCUS principles): I used Microsoft Word (which personally I didn’t care for. I’ll admit I only used very simple tools that I’m sure anyone could use. I did watch some of the how to videos posted on Ilearn and those were handy. Though it is impressive Word had these abilities. I used a scanner, Word, and a PDF to JPEG converter.
  3. Message: In truth wasn’t sure what to do for a picture of people holding fishing pulls. I chose to go for a fishing awareness fund raiser because fishing is fun and fish taste good.
  4. Audience: The whole family.
  5. Color scheme and color names: I chose to do a blue and green. I thought the colors kinda looked murky a bit. The title has a reflection and I did this because I thought it looked like the reflection on water. I also used white for the body text. I thought it showed up better.
  6. Top Thing Learned: Mostly that Word has the abilities to do this.
  7. Title Font Name & Category: Berlin Scans FB Demi.
  8. Copy Font Name & Category:
  9. Scanned images used, sources, original sizes, location of scanner used: It was a picture from a Handyman magazine. The scanner was at my folks house.

Project 1 Flier

Description: A black and white flier for a graduate event.

Process (Programs, Tools, Skills, FOCUS principles): I drew several sketches and chose one to work with InDesign. I mostly went for a more grey and white look to things. I wanted things more light. Also I tried to keep things simple.I was given the material to work with for this too.

Message: I was going for a professional look but simple at the same time.

Audience: Being a graduate flier the audience are graduates.

Top Thing Learned: Mostly about how to use InDesign.

Strategic Opportunities

Several opportunities to distribute my media could involve facebook, vimeo, or even youtube. Moreover, I could also keep followers updated on these sites. Another way would to be showing my work to friends and family and then having them spread the joy.
