week 6

This week we covered alot!  We reviewed more about photoshop, css, and fireworks.  Also we worked on our resume’s again- which by the way is very nice because I needed to work on anyways! Also I learned a lot more functions on adobe photoshop. Our banner project was also an assignment we worked on- I am not proud of my banner because I just seem to be blank on ideas for a spring time representation.

Final Project Proposals

  • Name of the business, organization, etc., that you would like to work with;
  • How you are affiliated with the organization;
  • How you would gain information, photos, and content for the website;
  • Anything else that would be of interest;
  • If one of your ideas involves a portfolio website, please include whether or not you have current digital content, and what type of portfolio it would be.

1st. There will be no business or organization, I will be making a website as either a portfolio for my own work or a portfolio/ display site in which to showcase as a professional designer with past work I have already done.

2nd. The organization is affiliated with me because it will be about me and my past work/ current designs.

3rd. I will be using my own work and animations to display with a original looking website of my own style.

4rd. The styles and designs I display will form interest into my services or portfolio.

5th. I do not have current digital content. However, I do have plenty of images and animations that will showcase my abilities and make my portfolio more interesting (business portfolio).

Week 4

this week was very interesting because we finally got to learn some of the tools for fireworks (involving shapes, properties, and importing/exporting files).

Week 3, 1/11 – chapter 2 blog post =)

This week we started chapter 2 “color”. It was about different perspectives, theories, understanding, principles, proper usage, and color associations.  It was very interesting in the way each color was broken down and explained in better detail about temperature, values, tones, hues, and schemes ( scheme examples http://www. haveamint.com/ & http://www.blueflavor.com & http://www.blinksale.com & http://urlgreyhot.com/ ). All together it was a wonderful some what sort chapter about applying and better understanding color.  The way he involves his life stories to some examples is pretty sweet..I look forward to chapter 3….”texture”

be back Sunday to update rest of blog for the end-week assignments.
