Create a portfolio to highlight projects completed in Visual Media class.
PROCESS (Programs, Tools, Skills, FOCUS principles)
- I started this project by looking at past examples of portfolios for inspiration.
- 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.
- I made corrections for different projects.
- 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.
- I made title headings in Photoshop to make them have a more chiseled look.
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.
