Description:
Montage project; Take a base image, and use masks and
blending to add new pictures into the main.

Course/Instructor:
Comm 130 Section 03
Cory Kerr
Program(s)/Tools:
Adobe Photoshop
Objectives:
Learn how to use masks to blend images
Learn how to use flters to enhance images
Become more familiar with Photoshop
Process:
I used a picture of the constitution as my main picture. I then
used a picture of an American fag, for this one, I blended the
layer onto the frst, and that was all. For each of the smaller
images, I used a sof light or a hard light blend, and then I
used a mask to sofly bring them in to the main photo. I used a
selection took to select the text We Te People establish this
constitution to hopefully emphasize those six words, and then
changed the saturation/hue of them to make the words stand
out.

Objectives:
Learn the basic skills of good photography
Learn how to enhance pictures in Photoshop
Process:
I chose the Violin as my subject, and knowing that my violin
was a brick color, I decided to go with a triadic color scheme.
Te case for my violin was conveniently blue, so I chose brick
blue and green. Afer this, I knew I needed either some trees
or grass to complete the color scheme, so I went to porter park
to take pictures of the violin. Afer the pictures were taken, I
changed the levels, the highlights/shadows, the hue/saturation,
and did some edits in the channel mixer as well. All of these
edits gave the appearance the photo now has, with more vibrant
and engaging colors than the original photo. Ten I used a
quote from Berthold Auerbach about music. I aligned the quote
in thirds along the photo, and changed the orientation of the
authors name. I used F-holes from the violin to highlight the
color scheme.

On September 17, 1787
This great nation signed the
greatest political document the
world has seen. Two hundred
and twenty seven years later,
the Constitution of the United
States stands as a stumbling
block to those who would
destroy our freedom.

Adobe Illustrator
Adobe Photoshop
Adobe InDesign
Objectives:
Create a brochure for a company
Use paragraph Styling and text wrap
Create new logo for company
Process:
For this brochure I used primarily InDesign. I created
guidelines to use to know how to place each fold. I created
the event to celebrate the most forgotten and unsung holiday,
which is Constitution day. I used a picture of J. Reuben Clark
and altered it in Photoshop, so I could use it to wrap text
around. I created a logo in Illustrator using the tools I have
learned from this class. I organized it all in InDesign, and
inserted the words. For the revision I moved the paragraphs
around, I fxed some of the fne details, moving text slightly to
increase its aesthetics.

Program(s)/Tools:

Adobe Illustrator
Objectives:
Create a new logo to ft a company or personal image.
Design consistent layouts for a business card.
Use the basic tools of Illustrator & InDesign.
Process:
I created the logo in illustrator. I used the two letters D
and C, and I put a visible stroke on the D and changed the
arrangement so that part of the D was overlapping the C, and
vice versa. I added a small gradient to add some texture to
the design, but in my revision I removed it due to critique I
received. Using the efects tool, I put a small dropshadow on
the letter C to add some depth.

Objectives:
Create a letterhead to match the business card for a company I
designed a logo for.
Process:
I created the logo in illustrator. I used the two letters D
and C, and I put a visible stroke on the D and changed the
arrangement so that part of the D was overlapping the C, and
vice versa. I changed the design of the letterhead slightly. While
spending large amounts of time on it, I opted to go for a very
similar design to the original, but with an added line for clarity.

Objectives:
Apply design principles learned in class to a website using
HTML and CSS.
Process:
I used a logo from the logo week project as the main idea
for my website. I kept it very simple. I used CSS to style the
website, and HTML to create the content.

Program(s)/Tools:
Adobe Illustrator
Objectives:
Imagine, design, and create 3 unique logos.
Learn the process of creating a logo in Illustrator.
Process:
I used illustrator for each of these. I primarily used the text tool
for some basic shapes, and then the pen tool and shape tool
for extra lines and shapes. Most of the design took place in the
sketching phase, which made the illustrator phase signifcantly
easier. I used the CTRL + D to add the lines through the middle
design, and then at the end I added the color to adhere to the
color scheme rules.

Program(s)/Tools:

Objectives:
Create a fier to advertise for the Graduate Leadership
Conference using the tools in InDesign
Process:
: I used inDesign to put all the images and graphics together.
I created textboxes with the rectangle tool, and then used the
gradient tool. I used Photoshop to make the photo appear
as though the mans arm was coming out of the picture. My
revisions to this were changing the background behind the
words Graduate Leadership and Conference as well as
behind the text on the lower right part of the page. Instead I
went for lines around them, that I think work better. Before it
was a badly done gradient.
