For my final assignment I decided to do Guess the Song. In this assignment, I had to create a poster that described a popular song while also using a picture of myself. I was really excited to use this assignment to be creative!
While thinking about the song I would choose to use for this assignment, I decided that I wanted to connect it to to theme of the class. In this I would be picking an 80s song to make the poster off. I looked on the internet for a little while until I found the perfect song to use. After choosing a song, I now had to thinking about how I would make a poster of myself that represent that song.
This took a little bit of thought, but I finally found the perfect way to describe this song! And this was the final product!
For my 3rd assignment for this week, I decided to do the best to spread cheer is making cards for all to see. In this assignment, I had to make a card for someone in my life. I love sending my friends little notes to brighten their days so I was super excited to do this assignment.
I first started off by looking for a good templet to use for my card. I wanted something that was calming and cute so that they would feel calm when reading it. I messed around with a couple of different templets until I found the one that I wanted.
Once I settled on a templet, the next thing I did was pick a saying that I would want on the card. I thought about this for a couple of moments until I decided to use this as my quote, “Don’t get stressed over the small things”. Most of my friends are college students, and with midterm season with us right now I felt like this was a good message to send.
I got typing and played around with the font a little bit until I got my final product. I am really happy with this final product and can not wait to send it around to my friends!
The next design assignment that I decided to do was create your own business card. In this assignment, I had to create a business card for some sort of business that I had or wanted to have.
When thinking about what I wanted to somehow connect it to the theme of this class, that is when I decided that I would make a business card as is I was a jazzercise instructor from the 80s.
I really enjoyed being able to connect this theme to the assignment and look for business card templets that seemed to be kind of 80s. I decided on a templet that was very bright and colorful. That is when I got started with customizing it to me and my “business”.
I loved being to be creative and to bring the 80s into this assignment! I also love the final product that I ended up with!
For my first design assignment this week, I decided to do Wedding Invitation. One of my favorite things to think about is my wedding, so I was really excited to do this assignment!
Another thing that I am super obsessed with is the bachelor franchise. I have been watching it with my friends since freshman year and we never miss a week. On the last season of the Bachelorette, there was a guy on there named Tyler Cameron. When he was first introduced I fell in love with him. He did not end up winning which was really sad.
So when I was thinking about who I would put on this wedding invitation since I am not dating anyone at the moment, I decided to put Tyler Cameron. I was really excited to get started designing the wedding invitation.
I start by looking through all the templates on Canva to find the perfect one. I finally found one and start customizing it to my wedding. I also had to figure out when I wanted to get married and where. The where was pretty easy, I love the Silk Mill downtown and would love to get married there one day. It is very rustic and so beautiful! The when was a little bit harder. I know that I wanted an early fall wedding so I decided to just look through my calendar and landed on September 26, 2020.
I love working on this assignment and I was really fun to be able to dream about my future wedding!
