This will be your visual journal and exploration of the design elements and principles we’ve studied in class. By turning your attention to the outside world, you will take your own photos out in the street, and from ads you see all around, searching for examples of each category we’ve covered.
You will find 3-5 examples of the following subjects, then assemble them into an inDesign or Powerpoint pdf, with labeling, text and definitions. Some images will be examples showing different Design Elements and Principles. Write small blurbs using design vocabulary.
Design this any way you choose.
You may begin each subject with photos of your own class projects.
