process
For this design we are to use InDesign to design a fier. Use
design rules and principles I used are the rule of thirds, grouping,
alignment, value, white space, repetition & rhythm, focal point
and fow.
I used different shapes that were like building on each other like
the leadership fier was talking about what they would teach at
the conference, how to build on upon yourself. While also using
the odds principles, fow, white& negative space, value with the
gray scale and rule of thirds.

compititive edge in businness?

objectives
Learn how to use other programs incase you ever have too due
to time constraints, money shortages or it is the only thing you
have to design with.
process
Scan a high quality image. Then proceeded to use Microsoft
Word to design an ad. Pick a color scheme that complements
the image and pick two type fonts that complement each other.
Finally apply the necessary text; title, description, cost, time and
location. To give the image and text separate but harmonious
place to live I used boxes with gradients to give depth and fow
into the image. And added opacities so the boxes weren’t too
harsh on the image.

process
So for this project I went out by my apt on a cloudy day too
some photos. This was perfect because the best time to take a
picture is either early morning, right before dark or on a cloudy
day.
After getting the image you want proceeded to edit them
in photosho. Using flters like brighten or contrasting. Then
designed a fier that used colors in the photo and create a color
scheme. Then repeat color scheme in said fier. To reiterate the
importance and connection of colors.
When you look at a dandelion
field you can either see a hundred
weeds or a hundred wishes.

objectives
Learn to make several images into one with photoshop.
process
For this project I explored the internet on different ways people
combined images and how they made them look as one. The
n looked for high quality photos (google, free photography
websites and pinterest).
Once images where found i edited them in photoshop and
started combining to make one! After about the fourth try I found
a combination of photos I liked.
From there I worked on shaping, saturation, colorizing, vibrancy,
opacity and masking, till I fnally get a desired look. Then to
make the image have more meaningful I found a quote that
could add to the depth I wanted to give it. Giving it a complete
feeling.

So for me I had to put together a fake company. I didn’t have
anyone I could make on for so I tried to come up with a base
business; cafe. Then I had to think of a name and I saw a picture
on pintrest of fowers; peony blooms. Then I came up with what
we sold.
From there I started making logos in illustrator. Through this whole
process I keep going back in forth to pintrest and looked a logos
that I like and peeked my interest and asked “why they are
good.” Was it the style, text, shapes used, color combination,
etc. Once I answered the why I was able to build three unique
logos.

objectives
Learn to make a business card that works together with the

process
So for this project we are to design a stationary (business card
and letter heading) for a new company/client. I needed to
make up a client so that I could really create for them I needed
to know what was there needs or how could I apply there work
into the stationary.
For me, my client is Allison Waters, Graphic Designer. I wanted to
do a play off of her last name and watercolor. So to make the
watercolors I played in Photoshop. Once i got the look I wanted
I moved to Illustrator and made a clipping mask with the texture
and text to give me “waters”. Then proceed to InDesign and put
together the stationary pieces.

Learn to design a web site using the proper tools and coding. So
to better understand and appreciate the process and working
going into in.
process
To start we were to make a logo or use on already made one.
Then we used a pre-made web structure. Then placed all our
information, colors, text and logo into the HTML and CSS. For
special effects we looked on line for a semi less background
image. Coming up with wooden planks that added to the design
yet keep it bright for the children’s bookstore, Fox Books. And to
add to the effect found a opacity programing setting for CSS to
make the logo, words, colors and image mess together better.
Making them feel complete.

helps you maintain your body’s everyday functions, promotes

Sleep
Finally one of the last things that contribute to a healthy
life is sleep. Sleep is essential for a person’s health and
wellbeing. Your immune system relies on sleep to stay
healthy. This system defends your body against foreign or
harmful substances. Ongoing sleep defciency can change
the way in which your immune system responds.
Recipe
Fruit and Yogurt Parfaits
Fruit parfaits are one of the
easiest healthy desserts that are
easy to make so you can try
and mix with whatever fruits you
enjoy! The ingredients list is short
and the prep super easy simple!
You can alter the recipe to your
own taste.
•16 oz of Greek Yogurt (plain or
favored)
•1 ½ cups Blackberries
1 ½ cups Bananas
•Place ½ cup of each fruit at
the bottom of each glass.
•Layer the yogurt over the fruit.
•Finish by placing the remaining
cups of fruits over the yogurt.
Top with a
teaspoon of
honey for
an added
touch of
sweetness.
Easy,
simple,

Goals
Start with a goal, make
it small that can be
accomplished in two
weeks. Small goals are
vital so that you don’t
feel like you can never
accomplish them. You
need to learn to crawl before
you run.
Work-out
We are recommended
to workout for at least 30
minutes two to three times
a week. Exercise increases
muscle tone, leaving you
looking more defned, and the
extra muscle mass will also help to
increase your resting metabolism. It
can improve self-esteem and self-
confdence. Working-out will give
you extra energy, stamina, and
endorphins will spill over into other
areas of your life.
Eat Well
While working out is import and
vital the most import is eat healthy!
You can work out hours on end
and make no head way if you eat
horrible food! Eating in this manner
