Final Project

Process:  I compiled my designs that I had created this semester and placed them as a JPEG into a PowerPoint Presentation to show what I have accomplished.  I created a light blue rectangle design with rounded corners on each of the slides.  At the bottom of my intro page, I drew an elongated shape then used a larger “Algerian” font to make my title.  The title overlapped the oval shape.  A smaller-sized “Latha” font was used for contrast to create my name.   This same procedure was used on all of the slides for consistency.  The images were placed towards the top right-hand side of the page.  Big split complementary colors blue, green, orange, and purple were used as fill in each of the oval designs.  I used the same consistency with the oval shape and fonts on the conclusion page.

Critique:  My assistant, Juan, thought my PowerPoint looked good but that I should add my contact information on the conclusion page.  Cody and Betsy both thought my images should be a little larger.  I made them a touch larger.  Sister Peterson said to add four pictures on my slide show page.  I saved them in a JPEG and added my first two and last two.  I also moved some of my images down so they didn’t touch the page as she suggested. She thought my oval images were not long enough since some of the words stretched farther than the shape so it looked like the words were hanging.  I stretched the oval totally across the page. I appreciate the insight and advice.  My project looks a lot better.

My Savior’s Love

To begin my magazine layout project, I came up with ideas, drew sketches, then chose one to create as a shape map in InDesign.  The shape map helped with the basic frame.  It showed me how to improve my ideas by making a few changes from my sketch.  I created boxes where the images for the images.  My story text will be replacing the placeholder text.  I added my title and a place for a quote from my story.

The final project is shown below for a story in the Ensign.  I kept my layout fairly similar to the shape map.  Once my text was in the columns, I made a few changes to make it fit better with the layout.  I wanted the images to help portray the message of God’s love.  I used a monochrome color scheme with the blue color.

Critique:  Ben (my tutor) was the first one to critique my project. He suggested changing my font for the title and body copy to match better.  I changed the font and added a blue color behind part of the title.  I Skyped with Lauren on December 3 before 7 p.m. MST.  She liked the quotes with the text wrapped around it.

Fonts:  Title Header – Edwardian Script ITC (decorative) and Bookman Old Style (old style; Body Copy – Bookman Old Style (old style)
