Week 10_Photoshop Final
1. Research Swiss Design or International Typographic Style and read/learn/understand the basics of their philosophies of design, layout and typography. Please include images in your research. Here is a link to a documentary entitled Helvetica. This is a wonderful full length feature film. You might only have time to watch parts of it, but I highly recommend you finish the film when time allows.
2. Review the video (if necessary) on text in Photoshop.
3. Collaged Poster
*at least 8 images, half must be authored by student *must use some element of type in the poster. Perhaps you would like to make a poster for your first solo show at the Whitney, perhaps this is a promotional poster (like that for a movie, play, or even a travel poster)
I leave this up to you, but I want Original work. You may use digital painting techniques if you like.
NOTE: You will receive an extra 10 points if you complete the submission process and enter your poster in one of the poster contests that you find online. This will require some additional research and some critical thinking and idea generating/brainstorming. It would be wise to use a sketchbook to organize your ideas and your designs before executing the digital manipulation.
