Product Ad Project
You've been hired as a graphic designer for a marketing firm. The first assignment the company's given you is to design an advertisement for an automobile . Your job is to personalize a picture of a car with your own colors, logos, and background. Your final product must be a well-developed, attractive advertisement complete with the car's manufacturer logo and unique catchy slogan.
Find pictures of the car you want to make your advertisement for and save them in your Graphics folder. Paint them with any color and design your mind creates, and add logos to the car and/or background to incorporate your personalized style. BE CREATIVE! Take out the white background and place them in a setting of your choosing. Finally, add some text that conveys your unique slogan to finish off your advertisement.
Be sure to arrange your components in a way that utilizes the Elements and Principles of Designand accomplishes your intended purpose. Also, save your file often to avoid losing any of your work. As you may notice, I have provided a final example of what one advertisement may look like - but don't try to copy it! Generate something that shows your skills in Photoshop, as well as your creativeness.
As you work, save your project as a .psd and name it lastname + product.psd. When you are finished, save it as a JPEG with the same name (ex: turnerproduct.jpg) and submit it using the form on the right.
Magazine Cover Project
You have learned some very useful tools and features of Adobe Photoshop by now. Now it's time to apply both your newly learned skills and the knowledge we've been learning in class discussions. In this project, you will apply the Elements and Principles of Design to create an original, attractive magazine cover.
Choose your favorite magazine and create a magazine cover like it in Photoshop. Add a picture or two of the typical cover images this magazine would use - these could be products or famous people. Be sure your images are clean and attractive and not pixelated. The size of the project will be 7.25 width x 10.25 height in inches with 72 resolution. If these were going to be sent to an actual print company then you would use 300 as the resolution. Next, use font sites like dafont.com to select a few appropriate fonts and add headlines to your magazine cover. Be sure to practice unity, balance, emphasis, and proportion!
As you work, save your project as a .psd and name it lastname + first initial +magazine.psd. When you are finished, save it again as a JPEG with the same name (ex: turnerwmagazine.jpg) Submit the .JPG file using the form on the right. Don't forget to review the rubric to make sure you are meeting all of the project requirements!
