The Project Happens in 3 Parts:

Part #1: Sketch Your Layout ~

Design Always Begins with Paper and Pencil!


  •   Grab a pencil and do some basic sketches of your ideas.

  •   Your design should do one of 3 things: make you feel, think or do something - don't smoke.

  •   10 words Maximum.

  •   No themes associated with Death (i.e. Graveyards, Skulls, Grim Reaper, etc.)


Part #2: Move to the Computer ~

Scan your Drawing with your Slogan and Logo

  •   Open your scan in Illustrator (if necessary).


  •   Or, copy an Image off the Internet - or both - whatever you need to get a prototype started.


  •   Then begin outlining your work with the Illustrator tools that you will be introduced to during the course of this project.

 


Last Part: The Final Product ~

Render your Images with Software

  •   All your work must be an original creation!


  •   If you trace copied images from the internet they must be modified by at least 90%, meaning that the color, size and name should be changed to be unrecognizable from the original content.


  •   Present your work to the class!

    •     ALWAYS save your projects using the following naming convention:
FIRST_NAME_LAST_NAME_PROJECT_NAME


    •     DO NOT name your project any other way - Improperly named projects will not receive credit and you will be sad.

 

    •     NEVER leave your work on the desktop or depend on a flash drive - instead, save your work in a folder you can find later - preferably on a virtual drive where it can be backed up.
