Our last project in Graphic Design. It was collaborative, I designed the DVD cover and my partner designed the poster. I liked how this turned out. I did many techniques that I had never tried before, such as manipulating the background and using a filter on it. The background was created in Photoshop, the character was created in Illustrator, manipulated in Photoshop, and the text was added in Illustrator.

One of my projects that I’m really proud of is a cover for a magazine in my school. Sadly, mine wasn’t chosen, but the ones that were are both really good. I’m glad for those two people.
Some text is removed though, for privacy reasons.

Just finished a project today in graphic design to design a T-shirt. It was completely done in Illustrator.

In graphic design class, we had to create posters for different concerts. I was assigned Fleetwood Mac Unleashed. Because of the word “unleashed,” I thought that one of my previously created fractals from Apophysis would be a perfect focal. Other than that, everything else was done in Illustrator.

In graphic design, we had to design our own personal logos. Since I hope to be known as a graphic designer, I at first wanted to have a paintbrush in the monitor of a computer, but since it seemed too generic, I decided to add my initials. It appeared too crowded for me, so I cut the computer and left the paintbrush leaning on the letters. I created the letters from scratch, using the ellipse tool in Illustrator.
One of my projects for graphic design a few weeks ago was to design a bumper sticker in Illustrator, using a quote of our choice. The quote “Pessimists complain, optimists hope, but realists do something,” stems from a quote I had read sometime before the project. Pessimists complain when the winds change, optimists hope for the winds to change back, and realists adjust the sails. I just modified it to include any type of situation.
