Description: Two sided Brochure that was created. Date: March 29, 2014 Course/Instructor: Comm 130-08 Julie Perterson Program(s): AdobeInDesign/AdobePhotoshop Objective: Set up and align a two-sided, folded document that has an original company logo and use it in a brochure. Process: I created my brochure by making a gateway fold in Adobe Design. Then using the ruler I created folds in which know where my text and images should be placed. Then took my front image and made two copies. Taking both of them I inverted the images so the image would fold properly. Later created a logo using the pen tool and used text boxes for each part of the paw so they would fit perfectly. For the inside I first placed down my text and then put my image of pug and black lab puppies down after I used Adobe Photoshop with the quick selection tool to take away the background. After clicked on the images using the text wrap tool to wrap the text around it. Below the black lab image I placed the gold retriever puppies down bottom left and in the corner put the text. On the top right I placed husky puppies and text under it. Then blood hound puppies beneath the text. With the spaces that were left empty I place different colors of dog prints. With the remainder parts of the front picture I did not used I made the back. Giving it goo color and the appearance of completion of the whole brochure.

Use certain tools to select a portion of the image. Deduct saturation from the selected portion of the image. By using a filter or colorize a portion of the image. Process: Learning more about photography was fun and helped me to take a variety of interesting pictures. It was fun to make everyday things look more interesting. First I took a picture in the morning of cars lined up, but took it so the bottom car was framed in the bottom left corner by using the rule of thirds. Then I took another picture inside of my roommate while he was cleaning the bathroom, so I was able to get a wide amount of good shots. Which led me to get a nice one for my lead room that I place his head in the upper left corner, foreground and background where his head was in the upper right while the paper towel was placed bottom left. Later I took another of my other roommate playing games placing him in between the middle left and slight in the middle. The colors looked like they worked well together. Finally I took another shot of cars, but this time blurred the background more to make the front of the cars pull forward. Taking each car and place them in the bottom corners of the thirds.

Process: Before creating my logo in Adobe Illustrator, I did research. First I looked at images of paint ball guns. Then after picking one I imported it into Illustrator. Then used the pend tool and created basic shapes to outline the gun. Then filled all the shapes with a black fill and grouped then together. This way it helped to connect better with the audience.

Taking the image I placed on the back of the card. Using the shape tool I made the outline of my both the cards. Then open up a document in design and placed my images in. Each on a separate document. For the Letter head I placed the paintball gun pointing toward the information in order to show my focal point simpler. Then using splat marks I created my own “dotted” line.

Create three different logos that fits a company or image. Process: When creating this I used Adobe Illustrator. Using the Pen tool I created the outline shape of a snow board and ski’s. The first logo I placed the snowboard horizontal, using contrasting text for the focal point. Creating a more simplified version by just using text. I took out the “I” in Sakavitch and replaced it with a snowboard. Then in the last one I placed the both boards to be perpendicular of one another. Later added text on each board at an angle. All fonts varied in size in order to give it contrast and better focal point.

Copied background and made a mask in order to bring out the colors in his suit using vibrance, levels and set color. 3. Used the paint brush tool at default black and white setting to smooth out parts of the clothing that looked rough. 4. Then used the magic wand tool for batman to get rid of any white background. 5. Then placed the image of batman to mid bottom center, so that it would complete the gap in the middle of the other marvel characters. 6. Reduced the opacity and feathered out image. 7. Took the marvel characters and also used the magic wand tool to take out any excess white space. Then while using the lasso tool feathered the image and gave it a faded look. 8. Placed image bottom left more, even though it looks centered. Lowered the opacity to 38 for both super hero images to give it a faded look. 9. Added contrasting fonts to give the whole image a comic book/fun feel to it.

This gave a smooth look. Later I positioned squares to assist the title and flow through to the photo.
