DESCRIPTION

Create a portfolio to highlight projects completed in Visual Media class.

PROCESS (Programs, Tools, Skills, FOCUS principles)

  1. I started this project by looking at past examples of portfolios for inspiration.
  2. I wanted to use a wood grain background.   I looked for different backgrounds for my portfolio. I was able to find a light wood background.  I wanted to use green for my color scheme since most of my projects had green in them.
  3. I made corrections for different projects.
  4. I created a multi-page document in InDesign.  I made master pages and placed design elements and page numbers in them. I placed text and images for each project.
  5. I made title headings in Photoshop to make them have a more chiseled look.

CRITIQUE PROCESS

I met with my husband, Paul Baughman, for my One-on-One critique.  He thought that the design was good and not too busy.  He helped me find some spelling and grammatical errors.

Bro. Stucki liked my design.  He suggested that I add some effects to the titles to make them look stained or painted in the wood.  I was able to make them have a more chiseled look.  He also suggested that I need to work on my drop shadow. I was able to adjust the angle and opacity of the drop shadows.

Some of my classmates commented on my draft.  Hannah Ungricht like the design but was a little disappointed on the simple background.  She understood that the simple background wouldn’t distract from the projects.  Miranda Duncan thought that the design might be too simple.  I wanted the design to be simple so that my projects would stand out. Chelsie Brady thought the design was good but I needed to work on the drop shadows.

DESCRIPTION

Create a brochure for a company

PROCESS (Programs, Tools, Skills, FOCUS principles)

  1. I started out brainstorming ideas on brochure topics.  My friend suggested that I create a brochure about a pig store for her since she loves pigs.  I decided to go with that topic.
  2. I started sketching different kinds of brochures.  I sketched a two fold brochure, a tri-fold brochure, a square brochure and  a z-fold brochure.  I decided to go with the tri-fold brochure.
  3. I started to gather photos of pigs and pig items for the brochure.
  4. I created a logo for Oinks Piggy Palace.  I started to use a bright pink color but I didn’t like the way it looked.  I sampled a color of one of the pig pictures to get a realistic pig color for my logo and color scheme.
  5. I wrote body copy for the brochure.  I had three main sections- History, Piggy Facts and Piggy Products.
  6. I started creating the brochure in InDesign. I placed pictures and text in the document.
  7. I created a pig graphic for my infographic about pig facts.  I created a curly pig tail to be used as bullet points for my product list.
  8.  I adjusted some colors of pictures to match more of the color scheme of the brochure.
  9. I finished the design of the brochure and submitted it for feedback.
  10. After the feedback, I printed several times to make sure the folds lines were correct before taking it to the printer.

CRITIQUE PROCESS

I met with my mom, Chaille McGrew, for my One-on-One Critique.  She thought the layout was good and the color scheme was inviting.  She enjoyed the main title on the cover.  She thought that I focused too much on actual pigs and not enough on pig products.  I was able to add more pig products pictures.  I decreased the size of the pig picture inside the brochure.

Brother Stucki liked the overall design. He pointed out a spelling error on the front cover of the brochure.  He suggested that I worked on the text wrap around the pig mailbox. I was able to fix the spelling error and text wrap.

I was able to get feedback from my classmates.  One classmate, Dave Irvin liked the color scheme and logo.  Hannah Ungricht loved the design.  She suggested to correct the spelling error and fix spacing of sentences.  Chelsie Brady liked that I used a color that wasn’t too pink.  She suggested to work on alignment.

Web Page Mockup Project

10ajuliebaughmanfinalwebsitemockup

DESCRIPTION

Create a company website mockup using a grid in Photoshop.

PROCESS (Programs, Tools, Skills, FOCUS principles)

  1. I decided to create a website mockup of Lucy’s Lemonade which I used for my previous projects.
  2. I searched website design layouts online to get inspiration.  Then I sketched three layouts for the mockup.
  3. After I sketched, I decided to go with my second sketch for my layout.  I started to created a shape map of the website using a 12-column grid.  I paid close attention to alignment and proximity while creating the shape map.
    10a-shapemap-juliebaughman
  4. After I created the shape map, I started to add text and pictures to the shape map. I used the fonts that I used in the logo.
  5. After searching for pictures for the website, I found a large picture of lemons on a tree.  I thought that would be a great banner for the website.  I changed my layout from my shape map to fit a banner in the design.
  6. I was able to find a subtle textured background image for the mockup.
  7. I completed my design and submitted to the Facebook group for critique.

 

CRITIQUE PROCESS

After submitting my web page mockup to the Facebook group, I received feedback from several classmates.  Janette Anderson liked the pictures of the lemon tree and the color scheme.  Chearston Webb suggested that I changed the font or size of my tagline.  I played around with different fonts and sizes but I felt that they did not look good.  I just left the tag line the way it was.  Brad Campbell liked the banner image.  He suggested that I should check the leading of each element.  Heather Holt liked the textured background and suggested that I added social media.  I was able to find social media icons online.  I changed their colors and added them to the bottom right corner.  I eliminated the email.

Bro. Stucki liked my overall design.  He suggested that I take the text off of the banner image to simplify the design.  He liked the asymmetry of the header.  He also liked the alignment of the elements.

I met with my mother-in-law, Beverly Baughman for my One-on-One Critique.  She liked the banner picture of the lemons on the tree.  She liked how the bottom pictures were aligned but not framed.  She loved all the photos.  The picture of the lemon bar made her want to eat a lemon bar.  She was concerned with the word “thee” in the tagline since it is not used very often.  I decided to use the original tagline.

HTML & CSS Coding Project

9ajuliebaughman-webpage-screen-shot-cropped

DESCRIPTION

Create a custom webpage using  HTML and CSS.

PROCESS (Programs, Tools, Skills, FOCUS principles)

  1. I resized my logo from the business identity project in Illustrator.
  2. I opened up an HTML file using Notepad++.  I thought about how I wanted to layout the webpage.  I looked at other examples of this project from previous classes.
  3. I started creating content for the webpage in my HTML file. I typed up different sections of how I designed my business logo.  Some of the sections were inspiration, Illustrator skills, audience and design skills.
  4. After I created the content in HTML, I opened up  a CSS file.  I linked the CSS file and the HTML file.
  5. In the CSS file, I was able to style my HTML content.  I added a light green background.  I added color to the font.  I choose two contrasting fonts for this project.  I created a button.
  6. After I created the HTML and CSS file, I was able to validate and fix errors.

CRITIQUE PROCESS

I submitted the project to the Facebook group.  Wendy Holcomb liked the setup of the webpage.  She thought the background color didn’t match my colors.  She suggested that I try using the lime color from my logo as the background color.  I tried the lime color as the background.  It didn’t look very well.  I used the background that I had originally.

Bro. Stucki liked the natural color  font on the webpage.  He liked the light green background color.  He suggested that I needed to indent all the lines in the list.  After a lot of trial and error, I was able to indent all lines in my list.

I met with my mother, Chaille McGrew, for my One-on-One critique of my webpage.  She thought the layout worked well.   She liked the different fonts.  She thought that the green background was nice.

Infographic

8ajuliebaughmanfinal

DESCRIPTION

Create an infographic to be shared on Pinterest and a company’s blog.

PROCESS (Programs,Tools, Skills, FOCUS principles)

  1. When I first started this project, I searched for good examples of infographics. I started brainstorming topics.  It took me a long time to decide on a project.  I finally decided that my topic would be Arizona.
  2. I started researching Arizona.  I found this website that had 100 facts about Arizona. I decided to use this information for my infographic.
  3. I sketched layout designs and icons for the infographic.
  4. I started creating the infographic in Illustrator.  I used a background image that I created from Photoshop.  I created different icons for each state fact. My original idea was to have 10 state facts. I decided to simplify and only use 8 facts.
  5. I used the graph tool to create my graph.
  6.  Once the layout was complete, I worked on alignment of text and images.
  7. I was able to complete the infographic and submit my draft to the Facebook group.

 

CRITIQUE PROCESS

I met with my husband, Paul Baughman for my one-on-one critique.  He thought that the layout was good.   He suggested to add thorns to my cactus.  I also met with my mom, Chaille McGrew.  She thought that the graphics tied into the state facts well.  She thought the icons were cute.

I posted my graphic to the Facebook group for my class.  Brad Campbell thought it was a good infographic.  He could tell that the pants were jeans.  He suggested to make a icon of cotton.  Jeremy Taylor commented that I should add texture or thorns to the cactus.

Bro. Stucki suggested that I make the pants look like jeans.  He thought it would be nice to put the top 6 states for area in the infographic so that people can visualize the different sizes of states.  He also said that I should add detail to the cactus.  I also needed to fix the curves on the cactus.

Based on the feedback, I adjusted the curves to the cactus and I added thorns to it.  I reconfigured my graph and added different states for the viewer to visualize the size difference of states. I also made the blue pants look more like jeans.

DESCRIPTION

 

Design a company logo to be used for a letterhead and business card.

PROCESS (Programs, Tools, Skills,FOCUS principles)

  1. I searched the internet and brainstormed ideas for a company. I decided on a company that makes lemonade. I came up with Lucy’s Lemonade.
  2. I digitally sketched some ideas for a logo.  I submitted three logos to the Facebook group for feedback.  I also asked friends and family for feedback.
    6c-logos-rev2-rgb-new
  3. The consensus of everyone was to use the first logo.  The third logo came in second.
  4. I started to design the letterhead.  I decided to put the logo on the left corner with the text on the right corner. I used a left alignment for the text to draw the viewer to the logo.   I used a lemon as a watermark.  I used a line of yellow dots on the left margin.
  5.  I designed the front of the business card.  I used the same elements as the letterhead to create repetition.
  6. I struggled designing the back of the business card.  I created cups of lemonade to be put on top of a yellow background.  It was too much.  I decided on putting just the lemon and green circle on the back of the business card.
  7.  I completed the letterhead and business card designs.

 

CRITIQUE PROCESS

I met with my mom, Chaille McGrew, for my one-on-one critique.  She thought that the logo was cute.  She thought that the bright yellow background on the back of the business card was too bright.  She thought that I should tone it down.  I tried different shades of yellow.  It didn’t go with the design.  I decided to put the logo on the back of the card.

Bro. Stucki suggested that I add a third color to my design to complete the color scheme. I changed one of the leaves to a lighter lime color.  He thought that I should use little lemons instead of the yellow dots on the letterhead and business card.  I added little lemons to my design.  He said that my alignment was off on the front business card.  I was able to fix the alignment by using guides.

Montage Project

juliebaughman-6amontage

DESCRIPTION

Design a spiritual poster montage using images and text for a Christian non-profit organization.

PROCESS (Programs, Tools, Skills, FOCUS principles)

  1. After watching critique videos of past classes, I decided on a family history theme for my montage.
  2. I decided that I would like a picture of a temple and an ancestor in my montage.  I found a picture of my great-grandmother, Lulu Brady, that I thought would be a good representation of  an ancestor.  I also looked on lds.org for a Salt Lake Temple picture.  I wanted the picture of the temple at dusk.
  3. I placed the temple picture in the new image.  Once it was placed in, I used a blur filter on the temple image.  I created a layer mask to make the temple not blurry.
  4.  I placed Lulu Brady’s picture in my design. I put her image on the side of the temple. I created a layer mask to blend images together.
  5. Then I placed a paper image on top of the temple and picture of Lulu Brady.  I changed the opacity of the paper.  I created a layer mask to uncover the temple image.
  6. I added a quote from Russell M. Nelson to my design. I left align the text to be near to the temple.
  7.   I tried to use alignment and visual hierarchy in my design. I was able to complete my design.

 

CRITIQUE PROCESS

I showed my mom, Chaille McGrew, my montage for my one-on-one critique.  She liked my design.  She thought that I should place Lulu Brady closer to the the temple.  She suggested that I put the image of Lulu Brady on top of the temple. I tried that but it didn’t turn out well.  I was able to crop the temple image and put Lulu Brady closer to the temple. She thought the images could be blended more.  She liked the quote and the font used.  Overall, she thought it was a good design.

My instructor said that I should try right alignment of my text to open up more white space. He thought I need to soften the edges of Lulu Brady.  He suggested that I decrease the size of text and change the color to a warmer color.  I was able to incorporate his suggestions in my final design.
