Today I continued working on lesson 4. I finished assignment 1 and 2. I started on assignment 3 but didn’t get much done.

Before:

Frascht Photography letterhead border finished

After:

Frascht Photography letterhead repetition

My design already had elements of repetition with the border on the top repeating on the bottom and the color scheme being consistent. All I did was repeat the logos pattern in the background. I made the cameras face different directions.

Today I decided to redo one of my previous projects that I finished at the beginning of last semester to show how much I’ve improved with the tablet and photoshop.

Original:

watergirl

 

 

New version:

I like the new version so much better. I used some star brushes that I downloaded for the sky. Im really happy with how it turned out.

I also started this project:

Today I continued working on assignment 6 of lesson 3.

I started over with it again.

new event poster progress 2

This is what I have so far.

I typed the font in different shades of green. I pasted the clover and used the paint bucket tool to color it white. I made a selection of the bottom of the page and colored it green. I moved the clover layer on top of the green layer.

Then I moved the font around.

Today I took a survey that had me judge all of my classmates movie posters. After that I worked on assignment 6 of Lesson 3 on the Non-Designers design book. I didn’t get far. Some of my artwork got chosen by the CareerTech state department to be displayed. So I spent some time editing the artwork by adding information they needed.

Today I started a new project.

I started painting on the tablet and this is what I came up with:

jungle girl3

I used the paintbrush and eraser tools for the entire thing. I forget to work in different layers when Im painting but I remembered to make another layer for the background this time.

 

jungle girl 2

For the back ground I painted it green then downloaded a leaf brush set. I painted the leaves in different shades of green. I wanted the background to match her green eye.

Today I finished assignment 5 of lesson 3 for the Non-Designer’s Design Book.

Yesterday’s work:

Frascht Photography Flyer edited font

Finished:

Frascht Photography Flyer Edit finished

I moved the diamond in the middle of the photos to behind the middle square so that I could take the contact information out of center alignment. I also changed the font of the contact info to match the text I used at the bottom of the flyer.

Then I started working on redoing my event flyer following the alignment guidelines.

Today I continued working on Assignment 4 in Lesson 3 of the Non-Designer’s Design Book.

I decided to completely do away with yesterday’s design because I ┬ádidn’t like it. I went back to the original letterhead I had made:

Frascht Photography letterhead

I got rid of the top border, and the camera at the bottom. I changed the font of the contact info to match the font I used for the edited business card. I increased the opacity of the camera logo at the top to 100%. I got the background I used for the edited business card and pasted onto the letterhead. I moved it to the top left corner of the paper and stretched the image to fit the width of the paper. Then I dragged the bottom up so the border would be thinner. I pressed cmd+t then right licked in the square and chose warp. I dragged the points and images around until I git the shape I wanted for the top border. I duplicated that, then rotated the opposite way and moved it to the bottom of the page. I also changed the size of the font naming the business.

Then I duplicated the top layer again grabbed the paint bucket tool and paint the duplicate green. I placed that layer behind the top border but peeled it out a little. I did the same with bottom border.

I feel like this design is a lot more interesting and fun than the original.

After that I started on Assignment 5. I started editing my flyer to fit the principle of alignment.

Before:

Frascht Photography Flyer

This is what I got done today:

Frascht Photography Flyer edited font

All I’ve done so far is use a different font and decrease the size of the letters. I also moved them around a little to see where I wanted to put the text blocks.
