    Use the basic tools of Illustrator & InDesign.

    Process:I started out creating 6 different logos in Illustrator and this one was my favorite. I went througha series of steps to be able to have the bars from the logo in a different color. I then edited fontand layout to match the message. For my stationary, I aligned the text with the logo and theadded a water mark of the partial logo. I made the water mark not the full graphic because I

    think it adds an interesting element.

    Course/Instructor:Comm 130 Section 2Julie Perterson


    Adobe Illustrator

    Objectives:Create three completely different, original logos to fit a company or personal image that willappeal to the audience. Do not imitate existing logos or use previous designs.Use only the Illustrator tools to create and draw your logos. (No Illustrator pre-fabricated flares,symbols, etc.. No photos or live-tracing. You may use an image or drawing as a guide to trace itwith the pen/pencil, but delete the image before submitting.)Gather opinions from at least ten people about which logo appeals most to them.


    I first started out by creating the company Hollys Shake Shack. I started out by creating theshapes the sun, waves, and drink container. For the sun I combined circles withe triangle shapes,I then altered some of the triangle shapes to make the design more interesting. I created curvedlines and then added points so then I could alter the shape further. I then joined the path andcarefully altered the crossed lines with the selection tool. I then typed an S and merged it in theshape, then I erased the bottom half of it. I then created the shake shape with lines and a oval. Iused to rotator tool on the second and third designs. I used Adobe Illustrator.

    Description:Tis is a event ad for a fundraiser created only using Microsoft Word and a scanner.


    Course/Instructor:Comm 130 Section 2Julie Perterson


    Microsoft WordCanon Scanner

    Objectives:Comprehend image sizing (how pixels and inches work together)Find, scan and import a high-quality image.Create a full-bleed design.Choose a color scheme and typeface(s) that work for your message and audience.Learn to use only Word design features without using any Adobe programs, including Photo-shop.

    Process:I started out by scanning an image and editing the color in Word. I chose to make the color ofthe picture pink to reach out to the audience and to help make the background picture less busy.I added the title up top in a different font to draw in the viewers eye. I then created a ribbonshape over the picture and add light transparency to it. I added information about the event intothe shape to make it easier to read. I decided to capitalize the words to make the words sophis-ticated and like a phrase since there are not a lot of words in the design. I decided to leave thespace below the ribbon empty to emphasis the slice of cake and to have the viewer feeling likethey are open to join the event.

I liked this shot because I like how thelines of the elements play with each other. I really like the glow of the sun coming through thetrees. I started editing it in Photoshop by adjusting the levels, colors, and sharpening some ofthe leaves. Tis design was sized at 8.5 x 11 and includes an original photo, text, and a repeatingcolor scheme. I wanted to focus on the light in the picture and with the quote. o create thecolor swatches, I overlapped three of the same custom shape.
