Further development for the posters… A2 mockups on coloured paper and photocopies to feel out the ideas in full scale…
Playing around at home, I decided to draw from a Photo Booth photo I had of myself.
Using my new found knowledge of InDesign and its vector tools I set to work on a new series of posters for my band Hatcham Social’s new album and upcoming tours.
So on Thursday we looked through each others blogs, choosing three in each group that we would then present to the class. It was interesting seeing everyones approach to making the blogs and how each person updates and posts. Mine was very kindly chosen by one of the other groups as a one of their choices, and so they presented it and talked about what they thought was good, and also what could be maybe be improved upon. I think the approach to writing on other peoples I found most interesting, and will always be something i’m working to improve.
In this Applications workshop we looked at InDesign, and how to put together a two page spread for a magazine. From this we would use the posters and copy we had done to create our own spread later.
As a example for the layout we used the Bob Dylan poster by Milton Glaser.
On Monday we started Applications with Ricardo. Starting off with Photoshop. He took us through everything from the basics of creating a new page to the difference between Vector editing and Bitmap.
We also had a look at Adobe Colors for examples of colour palettes and as a good point of reference for creating colour schemes for designs.
