Design Assignments

The Grand Cayon

Creating a destination poster by using software that allows you to add, edit, crop pictures, and etc. To create a fun destination poster of your choice. Also, adding the text location and more fun images.

Your story as a game!

What would your story look like as a video game? Think about characters, the setting they’re in, and important moments in your story. If you make cover art for a game, what do you choose to include to convey an interesting and attention grabbing cover, and what do you leave out that may beinteresting but give away too much imformation? If you’re making a cutscene how do you frame your characters in a way that gives proper emphasis to what you want the audience to see? What style do you want your story to be told in? Look at all sorts of different video games for inspiration, and get creative! Use whatever program you think would get you to your goal best. Collages, videos, live action, pen and paper, whatever! 

Destination Poster

Using an editing software, edit a photo and crop to an 11×17. Then add text for the location or something fun.

warp text design

Using Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator or similar- find a photo you like and create text that warps to the shape of the photo. I used Photoshop and the pen tool to create a selection and then I added text to the selection and filled the entire space.

Sports Poster

Using adobe photoshop or comporable, create a poster for a sports team. Include multiple picture, Logos, text, and Color. 

Poetry Art & Design

This is building off of the Poetry Art assignment and is an exercise how design choices can change a message. Put your selected poem together with a background that emphasizes the message. Then make 3 different versions by varying the typeface, type layout, and type color to see how it impacts the message over all.

The Color of Words

Explore how the PhotoChrome site generates a color palette based on images from a word search in Unsplash. Pick a word that you think might generate interesting colors, and see what colors ir produces. Download the image generated and incorporate on of the reported images into it, maybe with a lot of opacity. See if people can guess the keyword when you tweet or blog your image.

Back to Basics!

Design doesn’t NEED to get difficult or require brain power! Have fun with it and be creative! Maybe use a couple design principles if you’d like but for this assignment I want you to time travel back to your childhood OR maybe even the now if you still play! Hop on a game like Mincrecraft or other free world games that allow building and design your very own Cottage, Tiny House, or even a mansion if you want to go all out! This should be fun and relaxing but still put some effort in! Enjoy! 

(try building in full survival if you have the time and want the challenge) 

The “Vogue Challenge”

For this assignment, I was inpired by Carson Berrier’s “Creat A Magazine Cover” assignment. It reminded me of the time I did the “Vogue Challenge” on Instagram a couple of months ago. The steps for this process are easy, first make sure you have and Instagram account, then proceed to take some really cool pictures, either with your phone or a camera. Then email the photo to yourself, download it and head of to Instagram. Make sure the photo has good lighting and your image is clear. Go to story section of instagram and edit your photos from your gallery. Make sure you put “Vogue” at the top in the “Times New Roman” font, add a caption or headline, and you’re ready to go!
