Personal Poster

For the poster, I come up the idea “Do What You Like, Like What You Do”. I think in this beautiful or big city, we all in pressure or competition. Also, because people need to live, they might not have chance to do what they like, it’s like we lose really something. Finally, I just want to remind myself or everyone in life can be do what they like, like what they do. Everyone can have a very happy life.

Video-FengYi Li(Niki Li)

For this Video, why I came up with the idea is because I don’t like the city life and it’s too busy for me. Finally, I like the quiet place or environment and I also I like to travel in my file. So, I come up a idea to leave NYC, then go to Providence, Newport, Harriman State Park and other place. In addition, you can see there are many foods in different place too. I think life cannot without foods. Finally, I think this is a very cool idea to do the video like that, and I like it so much.

A Field Trip Report (UFT-Print Shop)

For the trip, we went to the UFT, Print Shop in 52 Broadway, NY. As we know, the United Federation of Teachers (UFT) is the labor union that represents most teachers in New York City public schools. In addition, it represents approximately 185,000 members, is the sole bargaining agent for most of the non-supervisory educators who work in the New York City public schools. UFT also represents approximately 75,000 teachers and 19,000 classroom paraprofessionals, along with school secretaries, attendance teachers, guidance counselors, psychologists, social workers, adult education teachers, administrative law judges, nurses, laboratory technicians, speech therapists, and 64,000 retired members.

For the first printer we saw is the “Epson Stylus Pro 9800 Extra Wide Printer 44″, it sets new standards in the world of large format printing of photos, artistic prints, and proofing. In addition, the UltraChrome K3 ink sets and Epson Micro Piezo™ which printhead technology is able to produce very precise skin-tones together with the finest details.

The second printer we saw is the “KIP C7800” printer, it’s a high-speed, high-quality color and B&W production print system for wide-format applications that demand the highest levels of quality, speed, and cost-efficiency. Ideal for a comprehensive range of technical and production needs, the KIP C7800 providing powerful print control capabilities and versatile production advantages, including a wide range of print submission methods, cloud-based printing, scan and copy, variable data printing and fully integrated stacking and folding. In addition, it’s a game-changing wide-format color printer for everything from architectural, engineering and construction plans to maps, posters, and signs. With speed, accuracy, scan and copy functions and fully integrated stacking and folding.

Compare the first printer “Epson Stylus Pro 9800” and the second printer “KIP C7800”, they both are very good for print. But the first printer which the one looks very long is better because as you close to see the works, it’s more details and it still looks good. For the second printer which the wide one, it’s for long distance to see the productions or works. So it might not good compare to the first one.

The last one we saw is my favorite printer “AnaJet MP10i mPower DTG Apparel Printer”. The mp10i model represents a significant step up in durability and performance over the popular original mPower. In addition, that AnaJet printers are widely regarded as the garment decoration industry’s benchmark for faithfully reproducing full-color digital images onto t-shirts, canvas bags, and other products. In addition, all mPower digital apparel printers print full-color digital images with resolutions ranging up to 1200 dpi. All mPower i-series printers boast many key improvements, including improved ink flow during printing, less ink consumption, and waste, especially during maintenance routines, more durable valves, pumps and print head maintenance components, and firmware and AnaRIP software enhancements for greater efficiency and ease of use. Finally, MP10i printer is a very good and cool printer, and it’s so convenient for us to use it.

In conclusion, these were so important for us to know because there is a big competition between us, so we always compare to the competitors or others. As a designer, we must need to know more or experience more in order to find the job in the real life because time is money. The companies always want to hire the best employee who can save their money and times. Finally, we should learn that knowledge in order to have a better life.

Paragraph For Myself

My name is FengYi Li and I also have an English name, Niki. My major is communication design, and I love design. For example, I like fashion design, 3D dimensions, architecture, interior design, watercolor painting, and others.  When I was young, I always dreamed myself to be a fashion designer. But after I grow up, I know it’s very hard to succeed in fashion design. So, I changed my mind after I graduated from high school, and I decided to take communication design to my major at City Tech. Additionally, I think web design might be my final major.

In addition, I like to play table tennis, and I started playing it when I was in 4th grade. I played many table tennis competitions before. For example, the PSAL in 2016, and I am the fifth girl single in NYC, and I think I still need to improve more if I play games again. My other hobby is playing the video game with my friends on the phone, such as a game like League of Legends what we call “LOL”, and so on.

                                              Concepts Of The Quotes

           My quote is “If you don’t follow your heart, you might spend the rest of your life wishing you had.”  In other words, you need to follow your heart, don’t waste your time; just do what you like because you don’t want to be regrettable in your life. So I try to find the images that relate to heart. For the first concept, I want my quote to be more serious looking, so I use the font Helvetica and it looks more professional. In addition, I want my quote to be stand out, so I just make my text to the white color and put into the black area in the image. Also, I just put the author in the dark area on the right side at the bottom. Finally, it should a very high contrast for the text. For the second concept, I find a very meaningful Tattoo image. I want to people to think about it first, then look at my quote. So I don’t let me the text to stand out that much and I decide to use font Snell Roundhand. For the third concept, I find the image about the sunlight or sunset and it’s colorful. In addition, I try to make a balance for the color between my text and the image. So I use blue and yellow in my text and make them 50%. Also, I think the word “ follow your heart, wishing you had.” is important in this quote. So I make them bigger than the general text. Additionally, I use Helvetica again because it’s more professional looking.

Color Project

img_4965img_4966This is the project for Grey and Color. For each color near around must have some transition color in order to make it looks comfortable. For example, that cool color which blue, purple and warm color which red, orange should not be put together in one work because they don’t have any transition. Finally, when you make a color work, you should put the same type of color together in order to make everything look perfect.
