This logo represents my childhood and the love that was given by my family. When I was born  my grandmother gave my nick name Twinkle because she thinks I came to their life like a shinning start. And I was the first daughter in the family may be because of that they called me twinkle by love. Even though everyone called me by Twinkle at home  but it was never put officially on my birth certificate.

Quote Post Cards

1. For the first one I have used Noteworthy as my face type. I think this face type matched with the picture. The background picture was from last years winter. I took the picture while I was taking an uber to my home. This quote means everyone wants to hear the truth but few can tolerate it; as everyone doesn’t have same level of tolerance.

2.For the second one I have used Menlo as a face type for this postcard. I used this type face because it is a san-serif and it is looking good with the picture. This picture is from summer 2016. I went to a trip with my family at Lake George. It was fun and this picture has one of the more lovable view that o saw during that trip. This quote means that truth hurts, no matter how much it is important it is to let someone know that truth even if it better for their future or the present it is eventually painful.

3. For the third post car baskerville is the one which I have used for this post card. The picture that I have used for this is the one that I took this picture when I went on a trip for a class this semester. This is a view of the central park from the Columbus Circle entrance. And this quote means that while lies may be easier to handle but honesty is the best policy. It doesn’t matter if you can keep a smile through the lies but that will be known as fake smiles; where as but staying as a loyal person you may hurt that person but you can actually bring a real smile if they chose to accept the truth.

Johannes Itten

Together with German-American painter Lyonel Feininger and German sculptor Gerhard Marcks, under the direction of German architect Walter Gropius, Itten was part of the core of the Weimar Bauhaus.Johannes Itten was one of the first people to define and identify strategies for successful color combinations. Through his research he devised seven methodologies for coordinating colors utilizing the hue’s contrasting properties. These contrasts add other variations with respect to the intensity of the respective hues; i.e. contrasts may be obtained due to light, moderate, or dark value.

 Albert Munsell

Albert Munsell was an artist and professor. At Massachusetts Normal Art School, he taught students about color composition. In 1905, he published A Color Notation, which outlined his color theory. He went on to publish Atlas of the Color Solid and The Munsell Book of Color, both of which elaborated on his system of color. Albert Munsell’s color theory is a system of color comprised of three main components: hue, value, and chroma. The system can be drawn like a cylinder that has circles that ripple outward at various degree measurements.
