Portfolio

 

DESCRIPTION

A portfolio to have all my comm 130 projects in one place.

PROCESS (Programs, Tools, Skills, FOCUS principles)

  1.  I created a layout in Indesign
  2. I decided to use the bubbles and color scheme from my brochure project.
  3. I decided to use the fonts from my other projects so it looked more cohesive.
  4. I used my data I posted on my blog post about what fonts and colors I used in each project.
  5. I made all of the pages be cohesive with the same font and color scheme and exact placement of the text.
  6. I reordered the projects so they showed all my random projects together and then all my projects that were themed around my photography business after.

 

CRITIQUE PROCESS

I got my project critiqued by my brother Grant who is in graphic design. He was the one who suggested to reorder my projects so it made more sense why only have of them had the same theme.

MESSAGE

For future employers to be able to see all my work in one place.

I Comm: There is Scroll and Soapbox that are great ways to gain experience.

New Website Mockup

I spent two hours revising my website mockup. It got the lowest grade so I decided that was the one I wanted to redo.

  • First I changed the images so they were all the same size.
    • I changed this because looking at it with a fresh set of eyes the shapes were too similar to be identical.
  • I changed my category circles to be even.
    • The eclipse did not work with the pictures being the same size so I made them all equal.
  • I changed my font.
    • Once i changed my font from black to gray you couldn’t see the type so i decided to change it to a bolder serif.
  • I realigned everything to a grid.
    • Once I put the grid on I noticed a lot of the items were not allied so I fixed everything. Also when I changed the fonts i had to change the sizes so they were not centered.
  • I changed my entire color scheme so it’s a triadic green, red, blue, and a neutral gray.
    • I have grown o dislike my gold and red color scheme so I decided to creat a more interesting color scheme. Since all my images were black and white it was easy to change the color scheme. I decided I wanted to keep the red but I wanted a more earthy and bright red. Once I had my red a picked a blue and green that matched. I decided I wanted the blacks to pop out in the images so I changed the text to light gray over the colors and dark gray over the white space.
  • I got rid of my two vectors on my footer.
    • The blue and red of the vectors did not match my color scheme and the cluttered the bottom so I decided to get rid of them.
  • I redid my header colors and font.
    • I decided with my new serif font I didn’t really like my big fluffy decorative font so I changed it to a more subtle decorative font. I Decided to Have the green be the title since green was my accent color. Then I had the bubbles be blue with a red inside because it was opposite of the banner bellow it.
  • I changed my white background to a gray one.
    • The white stood out too much with all the gray background so i decided to do the same gray at my text that was surrounded by color. Then i noticed my plain text didn’t stand out as much so I darkened that up.

Critique:

I got a creitique by Jordan Moore. He sugested that I get rid of the bubbles under my picture. I tried this and i couldnt find any other shape or simble that looked good to take its place. So after much fuss I decided to leave the bubbles.

Description:

Creating a brochure for future employees.

Process:

  1. I decided to create my entire brochure around an image I took.
  2. I recreated my logo color scheme to match my image.
  3. I made my logo horizontal instead of diagonal and got rid of my circles.
  4. I created a camera vector from scratch.
  5. I then started to formate my bocher in indesign. I placed my main image as the background photo for the front and back of my brochure. I then cut my logo and vector in half so they would met when the brochure is closed.
  6. I typed out my text i wanted to use for the back of my brochure.
  7. I went through my archives and picked nine of my own images and a single image of myself.
  8. I then organized all the photos and cut out the image of me so I could rap my text around it.

 

Critique:

My critic was from my brother who is an art major at University of Utah. He suggested that i change my color scheme to something more lively and fun.
