A Day In The Park – Assignment 2 – Nicholas Kyriazopoulos

Storyboard download.

Scan Feb 23, 2016, 2.26 PM

I walk with my friends to the park to play basketball after a long day. Daniel is holding a trophy on his right hand with a cast on his left arm from winning the championship from his team. Lutfi felt jealous holding a small silver trophy with both hands loosing the match today and bragged about how better he is then both of us. Out of sheer cockiness, Lutfi proposed a challenge for us to prove how good he is in the court by facing him against me and Daniel. Who ever scores first wins the prize and claims the trophy. We ultimately accepted his challenge; As we got to the court, Lutfi gives me the ball first with confidence with a grin on his face. As I bounce the ball he tried to get the ball from me and I quickly passed the ball to Daniel. Daniel is hesitant because he has a cast on his left arm. As Lutfi got close to him, he shoots the ball in fear and luckily made the ball go through the hoop. We proved to him that we were capable of beating him using teamwork and successfully beat him in his challenge.

Animated Storyboards – Assignment 1 – Nicholas Kyriazopoulos

Animated Storyboards is a NYC company that makes 2D/3D designs with over 150 highly skilled animators. The first process for this company is to have a brief, this is the task or problem they have to solve and to figure out a plan on what they need to execute. The second process is the the art phase, where they start sketching and drawing inside the thumbnails to organize the sequence. This allows them to get an idea of what they can do to make a sequence work while while writing the dialogue and how it’s framed. Then it moves on to the Animation phase where they put all of their concepts unto a computer and execute their ideas that were made from these sketches. Finally they record cast and audio to add voices and perform the dialogues that were written for each scenes that they put together, and you get your final result.

Rockwell Font:

Rockwell

 

I want to use this particular font because it’s my personal favorite font because of how the ears or arms of the letters, and how the serifs are all blocky rectangles making it have a modern feel for this generation.

Hamburger Heaven:

hambh_specimen

 

 

This particular font looks really retro to me, I feel that this sort of typeface can be used in the 50’s or in some genre of music. It has a really nice design and I really like how they look in terms of the shape.

Metal Lord:

metallord

 

This font is perfect when it comes to the metal genre of music. There are so many type of metal types and this to me is perfect, it shows how much power in the letters show and the character really shows intensity,

music_typography_by_floris9-d35zzzr

 

For the subject I want to do on this journal is music. Music is what keeps everyone going, the reason why I say that is that as a musician myself, I have been involved with music with my whole life, it’s what kept me go through the good times and the bad times. It has inspired me to become a better person, to learn the meaning of love, and the meanings behind of what the artist wants to share or express to the audience. Genres as far as I know is a part of music, a culture and somewhat of a personality. Music can connect with people, to share ideas, to influence and be inspired to make there own music, or to go through the pain they had to go through on their daily lives. It is important to me, because music is a form of art, it’s like I’m expressing my thoughts, my stories, my experience, and composing it to a piece of music so that everyone can connect with how I feel. I never thought of music for money, for drugs, or for any of that nonsense that’s out their. It’s the meaning in the words or the melody that counts, and how you feel with the music.

Typography of Greek:

calligraphy66

The greek language is an independent branch of the Indo-European family of languages. Native to the southern Balkans, western Asia Minor, Greece, and the Aegean Islands, it has the longest documented history of any Indo-European language, spanning 34 centuries of written records. Its writing system has been the Greek alphabet for the majority of its history; other systems, such as Linear B and the Cypriot syllabary, were previously used. The alphabet arose from the Phoenician script and was in turn the basis of the Latin, Cyrillic, Coptic, and many other writing systems.

History of the Greek alphabet:

The history of the Greek alphabet starts with the adoption of Phoenician letter forms and continues to the present day. This article concentrates on the early period, before the codification of the now-standard Greek alphabet.

The Phoenician alphabet was speaking in abjad that was consistently explicit only about consonants, though even by the 9th century BC it had developed matres lectionis to indicate some, mostly final, vowels. This arrangement is much less suitable for Greek than for Semitic languages, and these matres lectionis, as well as several Phoenician letters which represented consonants not present in Greek, were adapted according to the acrophonic principle to represent Greek vowels consistently, if not unambiguously.

The Greek alphabet was developed by a Greek with first-hand experience of contemporary Phoenician script and, almost as quickly as it was established in the Greek mainland was rapidly re-exported, eastwards to Phrygia, where a similar script was devised, and westwards with Euboean or West Greek traders, where the Etruscans adapted the Greek alphabet to their own language.

alignment-center-right

Centered: The text is aligned to neither the left or the right of the margin; there is an even gap on each side of each line.

flush-right-alignment

Flush right: The text is aligned along the right margin or gutter, also known as right-aligned or ragged left.

image03

Flush left: The text is aligned along the left margin or gutter, also known as left-aligned or ragged right. Like in this newspaper column that someone wrote a report about this person named Jiggy Carroll and it created easier to read text for the reader.

JUSTIFY

Justified:  The the text falls flush with both margins, also known as fully justified or full justification. In this page is showing what it’s saying above. Usually reserved for newspaper print and body text for textbooks, and is more difficult to work with. This type of alignment creates perfect alignment on both the left and right margins without regard for the actual characters.

02-rivers

Force Justified: In this text it is forced justified because the allignment space line up evenly against the left and right margins. This alignment option is often used in long reports to give the page a clean look and even margins of white space on both sides of the document.
