Theme Photo/Word Poster

I chose a picture of my grandma's dog. He was my bestest friend for a really long time. (Olyvia 2009)

Students will be creating a Theme poster with words identified with the theme placed on the page using Illustrator. Balance out the fonts and size of lettering across the page so it lines up with the edge of your chosen photo. The photo should be put through a filtering process so the outlines match up with the style of fonts you use. You can use gray tones and black within your layout. The arrangement should be horizontal... avoid diagonal words. Try to fit the lettering together so you avoid spacing whites and avoid lines of lettering by moving some words up or down. For example, if you use a 36 pt word next to it you could be able to fit in two lines of words, off centered so it's not on the same line.

DEADLINE: Friday 12/2 will be the last in class day to work on this project.
FORMAT: Print off a copy and post on the blog.

Josie's Retouch


This is my retouched picture. I tried to keep it close to the originally and think I did a pretty good job. -Josie

Magazine Cover

Working on designing your own magazine cover I thought you might like to see an example of a former students work.

I made this magazine in the tradition of popular mechanics almost. I'm a big car and racing fan so naturally I wanted a very modern, technical look. the picture is of the Kawasaki Z-1000 in my shop at home, and there's a special article inside about my favorite sport, Moto GP racing. I think it turned out well and hope others will agree.  Devon E. (2009)

For this project we had to take pictures and make them go together in an artistic way. We had to use 6 pictures. I think mine turned out good but somehow could've been a little better.
