13A Final Portfolio Project

In completing this my final portfolio I had a lot of fun. In the slideshow I situated my projects in a way so that it started off with bang and ended with a hoorah. In the introduction  and conclusion I chose to make part of my name a different color to match the color of the slide. Then, throughout the slideshows I added different colors to help each project stand out individually. However, I chose to maintain a red bar at the bottom to connect the whole project to the introduction and concluding slides.

Critique: I had my wife and sister critique my slides tonight. They liked almost everything. However, they suggested that I switch my intro and conclusion slides for a more dramatic effect which I gladly did.

Typography: Titles- Impact(Headings); Text- Times New Roman

 

12A Magazine Spread Draft

Here is my Magazine Spread Draft. I had a lot of fun with this project. It took me a while to decide on a shape map, but I figured one out that I liked. I also really love the images because the share of feeling of brightness and happiness. The primary reason I chose them is for the colors that gladden the heart. For the story I used my wife’s conversion story as inspiration.

Updated Project:

In finalizing this Magazine layout I sought out the advice of my wife. She said that I should change the title. As you can see from the previous image, I did so by moving it up towards the top of the page and changing the text color to purple. I also got a little feedback from my brother. However, I didn’t use his feedback because he thought I should divide the top image into two images and I didn’t think that was a good idea.
