1.) Paul Rand, IBM design, I really enjoyed its simplicity and effectiveness.
2.)Paul Rand, I really enjoyed the simplicity in this design as well, and even the alternating pattern. The overall image is almost intoxicating because of its depth.
3.) MY EDC ticket came in the mail. My car is a wreck — it’s finals week, I also have a pumpkin pie in there randomly enough.
4.) Instead of studying last night — I made a dream catcher for my apartment, I am always fond of lines, and geometric shapes. It was interesting to learn and create the effect by hand, rather than by using photoshop or illustrator.
… The final rendering of my Project consisted of eleven rough drafts for the entire background, and roughly fifteen typefaces for the quotation aspects. I wanted to created pieces that reflected one another and yet were dynamic and intuitive, (which is why the mirrored and inverted color selection for the background).
… I would like to think that I’ve successfully completed my Paul Rand Quotation. I tend to study at Starbucks for hours on end, and I got the inspiration to create a Chalk Type typography for his (and my quotation). Overall, I think the rough sketch was on the way, yet the final product was executed well.
A rendition of my quote for my Final Project — Keeping in mind that the topic is, “What is your thoughts about Design?”. We were to create typography outside of the computer and import into a digital aspect. I used a black board and chalk to create a texture, then used fonts and masking to get this overall effect.
It is going to be used in my Paul Rand project, (bottom left).
As of today, May 13th, 2013, I am in the process of finalizing my admission spot at Cal Poly Pomona. It has proven tough after my transcripts were lost in the mail… Bummer. I have to expedite two sets of transcripts from Victor Valley College as well as Chaffey College.
Even more so, I was denied my associates degree because the Degree Auditor claimed I was missing a course, so I had to confirm I’m in the course via a letter from the professor. Then, I had thought to also address that letter to Cal Poly to ensure that they wouldn’t receive the wrong misunderstanding either.
To top it all off, I heard back from Cal Poly Admissions stating they have received the Transcripts, yet want me to submit an appeal stating Why there were late and provide ANY supporting evidence of that I had sent the transcripts in early of Cal Poly is threatening to rescind my acceptance.
So in between studying for exams and finals, I’ve had to search through four months of receipts to state that I had ordered and sent my transcripts…
The following is a series of Jawbone UP! advertisements I created for a design class. In this project we were to render a AD campaign that would encapsulate beneficial aspects of a product and expand upon those aspects. The use of color theory, visual hierarchy, and repetition are used to create a sense of unity throughout all the pieces.
The following is my rendition of James Whites piece. I had attempted to use this creation in a Design class however, I was limited on my multitude of colors, and had to scratch the piece. For now, it rests on here — maybe my wall.
I rendered this “cup” using illustrator, then imported it into photoshop to apply simple gradients which I felt gave the entire image a clean, natural organic feel. The image was used in a friends’ Sales Pitch at FIDM Los Angeles.
I created this awareness poster for California State University Fullerton’s Health Science Department. The final result (to my opinion) has a good sense of Visual Hierarchy, guiding the readers eyes throughout the entire image, providing a sense of being informed, entertained, and ultimately aware.
