• Description: This project required me to scan an image of my choice from a magazine and create a design using the pictures I scanned for creative poster promoting a fictitious event or charity. I choose golf because It’s spring time and I’ve been itching to get out and play a round of golf, but since learning takes priority I’ll just make the best with what I have.
  • Process (Programs, Tools, Skills): In this scenario we were limited to Microsoft Word. I feel giving yourself limitation can only enhance your creativity. We emphasized color in this project choosing a color scheme and implementing it into our design.
  • Message: What a better way to justify spending $25 dollars on a round of golf than helping those less fortunate than ourselves? My Idea was to have golf scramble and that all the money would be donated to the blind and visually impaired.
  • Audience: My target audience are those who enjoy playing golf and have been effected one way or another by the loss of sight, whether in their own family or a close friend.
  • Color scheme and color names: Monochromatic – Red
  • Top Thing Learned: This doesn’t pertain so much to design as it does the program and printing, but I thought it was cool that you could set your margins when printing by going to file > page setup > manage custom sizes, and set your margins to zero allowing the printer to control how close it could print to the edge instead of the computer or program.

  1. Justin, You have done a very great job with this promotional project. Immediately as I opened your flier, my eyes were directed toward the title of “Graduate.” The contrast that you have displayed in typeface with the title helps make your title the focal point of your design for sure. And I like the emphesis you are placing on the bottom of the body face with the date, time and place. Because that is really an important part of the flier. Your white space is very well control and displayed through the project design as well.

  2. Justin, great job on the flier! As mentioned above, obviously, the very first thing that your eyes are drawn to was the large title of “Graduate”. I really liked how the white lettering would kind of “bleed” into the rest of the white space on the page. Loved that! Very neat. Just one personal preference, but one the date, time, and place, I would have given a little bit more black around the white text. Seems just a little bit too “tight” for me, but it by no means detracts from your message or the overall aesthetic appeal of the flier. Great job!


  3. I really like your ad for multiple reasons! I love the color scheme you used. I also like how you added the pink line to cut across the photo. The information is short and clear. I also love the title with the picture, it just goes so well together, great flow with the Z flow technique. Overall very good design. I also used the monochromatic red in my ad. Check it out:
