Alphabet Letters

Photographing Alphabet Letters

1.  Choose a word or name 5 letters long or longer.

2. Take photos of objects that create each of the letters in your chosen word.

3.  Download the images from your camera to the computer.  It's easy to download to iphoto and keep this as a gallery of all your images, you make use the again this semester.  1) Open iphoto, 2) hook up your camera to the computer, 3) select import - if you wish to delete the images from the camera check the box that says delete images from the camera (This is a fast and easy way to clear the camera of images)  it will ask you are you sure if you want to delete the photos on your camera, select yes! 4)  Once the images are on your iphoto account click on the round circle in front of the camera in the left column to release the camera and unhook the cords of the camera from the computer.

4.  Slide the images from your iphoto account to the desktop of the computer.  (you can put them in a folder on your desktop if you want)

5.  Open Photoshop and proceed to work with this program (you can close iphoto if you have all the photos you will use on the desktop)

a. Create a new document.  FILE  
Make the images size 10 inches in width by 3.5 inches in height.  You may have to change the measurement style to inches as there are many choices.

b.  Go to FILE  
(You can hold down the apple key and select all the images with your mouse and they will all open at once without having to go back to file

c. Select one image at a time to work with.  You may have to crop down an image.  There is a graphic in the tool column at the left with two corner rulers overlapping.  This is the crop tool.  Start in a corner  where you want the cropping to start and pull it out and down to where it should end.  Once this is done there will be a glowing dashed line around your image.  To finish the crop go to IMAGE

d.  Next you need to resize your image.  Go to IMAGE  
Inder Document Size make the resolution 100, and the height 3.5  Click ok.

e.  Next hit Open apple and the letter a.  this will select your whole cropped photo.  Choose the  Move tool, this is the top tool with a pointer and a cross and you will be able to drag your cropped photo to the new document you created in letter a.

f.  Repeat c, d, f, for each letter to move over.  If your word is too long or the images won't fit you may have to adjust the size of the new document to start with and reduce it later as we only have 8.5 x 11" paper to work with.

g.  Once your document is complete and you can read your word print it to the graphics lab printer in color.  We will crop the image and mount it on matt board for display using spray glue or glue sticks.

Missy's Alphabet Project

For this project I chose to do my mom's last name (Holman) because she's always wanted a picture like this. I took the pictures around my house and then added a vintage effect to them. I like the vintage effect because they make the pictures look old and they will fit better with our country house.

Font face

It was very interesting finding ways to make different parts of the font faces by using letters and symbols. The main goal is to notice the face before you start noticing all the letters and symbols. This was a very neat project.

Font Face by Zach

This is my Font Face. What it is is a face made out of letters, numbers, and symbols. When we first started this I had no idea what i was doing but once I got the hang of it, it was alright. My font face has @ for hair/beard, upside down 9's for ears, a ? for a nose, and a few other random things.

Font Face

It was easier then what I thought it would be. It didn't take that long, and turned out alright.

Font face

Font Face by Taryn

         Our first Graphic Design projects were Font Faces. We had to create a 3/4ths view of a face entirely out of fonts that we found in Adobe Illustrator. Below is a picture of the face that I made. I used a varitety of fonts, letters, numbers and  symbols to create my piece. I wasn't exactly excited about this being our first project but it ended up not being so bad and actually sort of fun.

Font Face-Jensen

this is my font face it has a variety of different fonts such as noteworthy, myanmer, and marker felt. there are a variety of letters and shapes like a C for the ear and a 6 inside the ear, two O's and a J making glasses. It also has a U forming the chin and ) forming a mustache.

Sally's Font Face

I wanted to go for a look that gave a silly look to it. I enjoyed using this Adobe Illustrator, it was confusing at some points be other times I loved making the creation.

Assignment - Font Face

Using Adobe Illustrator bring up a blank new document and create a full 8.5 x 11 page. You'll be creating a face using different characters from different fonts to make up the features and details.

Go to the menu at the top and select Type, then pull down to Glyphs. Glyphs will appear on your desktop and be a guide for all the letters within each font. Change fonts with the pull down selections at the bottom of the Glyphs box.

Go to Object at the top menu and pull down to Transform and pull across to selections of rotating the letter, changing the size,… Change the size of letters and their location to create a truly unique face.

Be as creative as possible creating features, hair, face outline, neck, and distinguishing factors. (do not do a head to toe portrait, this is a face assignment)

Try to Challenge your idea of how your face should look, what style of hair, feature shapes, eye lids, curls of hair, including a neck,…

Challenge/Creativity - Unique use of shapes
Variety of shapes used to fill in the character
Structure of Face - Do a three quarter view for full points!
Use of Full Page
Independent thinking and demonstration of tech. skills
