Paula’s Posies

I designed this magazine ad with a black background to contrast with the white and yellow flower. The words “Paula’s Posies” has a mask of purple flowers . The two white bars just add a little something to the desgin and tie it in all together

Digital image is a picture in electronic form.  Image editing is a program that allows you to manipulate graphic images so that they can be reproduced by professional printers using full-color processes. Pixels are very small squares that make up a picture. Logo is a distinctive image that you can create that combines symbols, shapes, colors, and text.

The advantages of using layers in a blog post are that if you need something done to an object the layer can be moved instead of all the artwork and there isn’t a risk of messing it up. The way that the heirarchy is the layered is the way it is set up on the screen. Layers make it easy to tell what objects are in a group together.

Concentric

Concentric is shapes that are sharing the same center point. They rotate around the same axis and depending on what the design is wanted to look like the size of the shapes will increase or decrease.

Tranforming Objects

Transforming means changing an objects’s size, shape, or position on the artboard. All transformations are done in relation to a fixed point (usually the center point of an object.) Reflection, rotation, and shearing are some of the ways that transformations can be done.

African Story Characters.

The Rabbit from the African story “Why mosquitoes buzz in peoples ear was a simple design.I designed the rabbit with mostly elipse circles The enitire character consists of multiple circles, ovals, and  wide circles. The ears I drew with the pen tool to make them look more realistic.

The Cushion Spider from the story was very soft. I gave the spider a soft blue and light blue gradient to make him appear soft. His body and head are multiple circles. The way he is positioned makes him look cuddly.

Vector Art

The design is sleak and simple. The gradient is used on the words and adds a shadow-like effect. The yak in the boat was a clever way to accent the name of the company also.

Attributes

Attributes effect the apperance of any given design. Typographic attributes includes font, leading, horizontal scale, baseline shift. Artistic attributes include fill color, stroke color, stroke weight, and gradient. The eyedropper tool is most handy for applying all of the attributs to a design.

Drop Shadow

Drop shadow adds dimesion to text or a design. Drop shadow makes things jump of the page. Drop shadow is an effetive way to add different colors to a text without changing design.
