Field Guide

I created a field guide for Neon Lights in South Austin. I used the locations: South Congress Avenue, South 1st Street, and South Lamar Boulevard. I took many pictures of the neon signs that were interesting and unique. I used black as the background color so the neon colors would stand out. I added maps since the book is based on location.

Site Redesign

I chose to redesign The Vanity Salon and Day Spa website. I used the same general colors. I visited the salon and took pictures that I added to my website. I tried ro show the vibe through the color and photos. I kept my site simple and easy to use. 

The original website is http://vanitysalon.com/

Concept Map
I created a concept map about the Civil Rights Movement. I added two info graphics  One is the voting numbers of the passage of the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments. The other is about important people of the movement and interesting facts about their life that is not commonly known. The main points of the movement that I emphasized are freedom, separate but equal, and equality. They are colored in red to stand out.

This is a timeline of graphic design history. It is suppose to be used as a large wall poster for a room. It is very large. I added specific dates on the top half and the movements on the bottom half.

Locating Place: Hispanic Culture in East Side

I designed and binded a book on the Hispanic Culture in East Side. My main parts are: history, religion, buildings, celebration, and food. I made a specific design with triangles that I use throughout my book. I added lots of festive colors and pictures. The second photograph shows that each section ended with a fold out of my point of view. That point of views are the second digital book.

(Due to certain font licenses in the book, there is some font replacements. The pictures of the book have the original fonts. I had to change the fonts for the digital uploads.  That’s why there are two different fonts.)

Symbol Design for a Cause
I created a window sticker for the back of the car for the cause “Don’t Text And Drive.” It is for the back window of a car to show all those driving behind. I added a tire to resemble driving and cracks to the cell phone to resemble the possible consequences of driving and texting.

History Class: Site Redesign

Monica and I redesigned YouTube in a medieval style. The top photo is a screenshot of the original website page. The second is the redesign we created. We kept the same general layout but changed the overall style to the older times. 

Visual Effects, Shapes, and Gestalt
I chose to represent “Alignment of Objects” as a Gestalt principle. I created a piece using the placement of circles, squares, triangles, and rectangles. The placement determines the uniformity and groups of the objects.

Hispanic Culture in East SIde (Motion)

My motion piece emphasize the main parts of my research to Hispanic Culture in East Side. Those parts are: history, religion, buildings, celebration, and food. I added a song from the movie Frida that adds more of a hispanic msuical touch to it.

Identity Series

For the identity series, I created buttons for the Blanton Museum of Art. I made buttons resembling the digital movement. I made the buttons for the participants at the museum. The categories are kids, youth, University of Texas, college students, adults, blanton members, and senior citizens.

TASA

TASA Booklet

Program Booklet: TASA

I created the TASA conference book and added a smaller booklet inside it that would be detachable. THe smaller booklet contains information on the schedule and map. I have a specific checkerboard style throughout the book.I tried to organize the large amount of information and add style as well. 

Kitchen Of Meaning
Hyperbole: an exaggerated statement or claim not to be taken literally
My message is “vogue is expensive.” People spend mass amounts of money on high- end products for “beauty.” In my poster, I show a woman spraying on perfume and the spray is actually coins and diamonds representing money. That high-end perfume is costly and she is basically showering herself with richness and glamour. I exaggerated the idea by using the liquid spray as money. I used a gray scale for the color scheme except the two main ideas in the poster. The red lipstick to represent glamour and the coins and diamonds represent money. I choose Bodoni Std font which is similar to the Vogue magazine font so it felt suitable.

Instructional Design

For the instructional design project, I choose to do “washing dishes.” My audience was girly girls for young adult ages. I choose a font called “A Yummy Apology” to give the girly aesthetics. It has 10 easy steps with tips in the bubbles that are throughout the pamphlet. It is 3 inches in length and 25 inches in width. It is folded in an accordion style pamphlet. The top part is inside the pamphlet and the bottom is the back.  It would be used to attach to dish soap bottles. People can get them while purchasing their soap bottles and keep them in a drawer in the kitchen.

Weather Report

For my advance typography class, we made weather report videos. We learned many latches before using after effects. I used the cities of New York City, Madrid, Rome, and Tokyo in my project. I used distance, time, and categories throughout the video. My categories included good weather, alright weather, and bad weather.
