Brochure
Description: Two sided, four fold bochure
Programs: Adobe Indesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop
Date: February, 2016
Course & Section: Comm 130-06
Instructor: Bro. Judkins
Objectives:

• Set up and align a two-sided, folded document.
• Create an original, new logo and use it in a brochure.
• Incorporate quality images. Incorporate at least four quality images,
not including the logo. One should be clipped in Photoshop and
text-wrapped in InDesign so the text follows the cutout shape of the
image.
• Write at least 250 words of original copy in at least three paragraphs,
headers, and subheaders.
• Trim for a full bleed and print in duplex (two-sided) color.

Process: I set up a landscape 8.5 x 11 in document in Adobe Indesign.

I then set up a grid so that I could know where the folds would be. I
then found photos and graphics from the internet to use. I found a
Batman symbol and used Adobe Illustrator to adjust it. A pen tool was
used to make my DC logo. I used Adobe Photoshop to edit some of the
pictures so that it would all blend better. The Batman symbol on the
inside, I made more transparent by changing the opacity. I set up the
heading styles and text wrap to flow around the symbol. DaFont had
the font I used; it’s called Batman Forever.

Logos
Description: Logo designed by me for my snow cone shack
Programs: Adobe Illustrator
Date: February, 2016
Course & Section: Comm 130-06
Instructor: Bro. Judkins
Objectives:

• Create three completely different, original logos to fit a company
or personal image that will appeal to the audience. Do not imitate
existing logos or use previous designs.
• Market research: gather opinions from at least ten people about
which logo appeals most to them.
• Use only the Illustrator tools to create and draw your logos. (No
Illustrator pre-fabricated flares, symbols, etc.. No photos or livetracing. You may use an image or drawing as a guide to trace it with
the pen/pencil, but delete the image before submitting.)
• Refine one logo with variations for color
Process: I went through a lot of different drafts and ideas to come up
with this final project. I wanted something a little abstract, but also
classy. I made the snow part with a brush and made up and down
strokes and layered them. The cup and straw were made with the pen
tool.

Business Card
Description: Business Card I designed
Programs: Adobe Illustrator & Indesign
Date: February, 2016
Course & Section: Comm 130-06
Instructor: Bro. Judkins
Objectives:

• Use the basic tools in Illustrator & InDesign.
• Create a new logo to fit a company or personal image. Do not imitate
existing logos or use previous designs. Don’t use photos or live trace.
• Use the new logo to design consistent layouts for a business card
and letterhead. Photos are okay on business card and letterhead as
additional design elements. Letterhead should be 8.5 x 11, full-bleed
optional, but trim only .125. Business card should be 3.5 x 2 and
printed above center on a vertical page.
• Apply typography rules, keeping small copy.
• Keep designs simple with light watermarks and drop shadows and
plenty of white space.
• Include contact information: name, address, phone, website,
and email on each piece. Use periods, bullets, or spaces in phone
number; no parentheses/ hyphens.
Process: I created the logo in Illustrator and then transfered it over to
Indesign. There I made the card outline.

Process: I created the logo in Illustrator and then transfered it over
to Indesign. In Indesign I layed out the the size of the letterhead and
inserted my logo and contact information. I took the snone cone and
changed the opacity so it would look like a watermark.

Event Ad

Process: I took the picture of the statue while in Brazil. The photo had
a huge cell tower to the left of the statue and some garbage cans in the
grass so I photoshopped them out. I then created a mask and placed the
other picture. I changed the opacity and used the burn tool to add some
color.

Process: I took the pictures that were provided by our instructor,
along witht he logo, and created a simple flier. The lines I used to help
the flow, but also to break up the sections. I wanted to highlight the
leadership part to that why its half way on the black and white.

motivational poster. In Photoshop I added a mask to make the white
blur on the side. I brightened the image, changed the levels and
sharpened the center image. The color strokes were made with a brush.
