Project 5: Logos

JustinDial-P5Logos

 

  • Description:

These are some logo designs I made for myself as a freelance videographer and editor.

  • Process (Programs, Tools, Skills):

I had some sketches and ideas for what I wanted as a logo. The hardest part was settling on a name or image for people to identify with me and my skill set. Using Illustrator I used the image trace tool from a picture of me holding a camera. I bumped up the contrast in Photoshop to give it the silhouette look. Then it was deciding on a font which was difficult.

  • Message:

These are simple logos for the audience to identify with my work.

  • Audience:

My target audience are those who need video as a medium of communication for them and their message.

  • Top Thing Learned:

Object > Path > Outline Stroke was shown to our class by Brother Kerr. this tool allowed me to create the incomplete circle in my middle logo. I also knew of  the Width Tool (Shift + W) to adjust the width of paths, but this was my first time have a purpose to use it.

  • Three Color Scheme and Color Names:

Top: Complimentary (Gold, Indigo)

Middle: Monochromatic (Blue)

Bottom: Monochromatic (Gold)

  • Three sets of Title / Body Font Names & Categories:

Colonna MT (Decorative)

Braggadocio (Decorative/Hybrid)

Braggadocio (Decorative/Hybrid)

  • Votes on favorite logo:

Top Logo = 4 ; Middle Logo = 4; Bottom Logo = 6;

  • My favorite logo is the Middle one.

Project 3: Photodesign

design” blog post.

  • Description:

I was thirsty today, so I went to my fridge opened it up looking for something refreshing. I pull out a Dr. Pepper walk back to my room and before I open it up I think to myself this is great moment, I should take a picture of it for my Visual Media class. We had to incorporate a color scheme based on the pictures we took and create a full-bleed 8.5 x 11 photodesign.

  • Process (Programs, Tools, Skills):

I grab my chair and drag it out to the hallway where there’s no light except a sliver of light falling on the Dr. Pepper can coming from my bedroom. I grab my Canon 60D with my 50mm 1.8 lens and set it on my tripod. I extended the tripod legs to get eye-level with the Dr. Pepper. Then I grab my little LED flash light that kicks out some extreme light. I crank my aperture down to f9 to get the whole can in focus but also to get some of the star effect you get when your aperture is at f22. I set my shutter at 5 seconds and set the timer on my 60D to give me time to go down the hallway and click my flashlight on for a couple of second. I then brought it into photoshop and pulled back some of the rich brick red and gold colors of the can.

  • Message:

Buy a Dr. Pepper.

  • Audience:

My target audience is those who enjoy a nice refreshing Dr. Pepper and for those who haven’t tried it.

  • Top Thing Learned:

I incorporated more than a few adjustment layers allowing me to adjust only the brick reds and gold colors of the can.

  • Color scheme and color names:

Split Complimentary. Brick, Gold, Blue.

  • Title Font Name & Category:

Humanist 521 B, Sans Serif

  • Copy Font Name & Category:

Adobe Devangari, Oldstyle

  • Thumbnail of original, unedited image inserted

This was the most fun I’ve had up to this point in the semester. I’ve always enjoyed photography and I was blown away by the sunset that I was able to capture in a time lapse (if you care to watch 20 minutes in 10 seconds have take a look https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FidivFJRtwE). It took a while for me to find a good location overlooking the Rexburg area but in the end it didn’t matter because to get the vibrant colors of the sky Rexburg was forced into darkness. 
Another photo favorite of mine was the Dr. Pepper. This was made in my hallway where it was dark. I was thirsty so I grabbed a Dr. Pepper out my fridge and thought, I should take a picture of this. I then grabbed a chair from my room. Sat the Dr Pepper on it, my camera on my tripod and my little flashlight. I set my setting to 2 seconds, open my aperture up to get that shallow depth of field, put my camera on a timer, hit the trigger ran behind my camera turned on my flashlight and pointed it back at my Dr. Pepper.
