Package of Nothing

YAY

This is going to be a super short blog post but we just got assigned to create a book that will be viewed and compatible with an ebook!!!! I’m so thankful that my program is actually preparing us for the crazy changing technology before we get kicked out into the design world and forced to learn it on our own.

Release some stress and share your story.

I was going to write a little rant about a potential client and then I found this site and well… you just have to read it.

Stay With Me - Antonio Rodrigues 


I really love this playfulness of the type and how its been placed so it interacts with the photo. Doing this creates a depth and visual interest as apposed to something which really seems to be trending right now-photo quotes.

Small Town vs. Big City
Me: How do you feel about being in a big city as apposed to a small town in your studies?
Daniela: I feel as though, it's more competitive. As if we have alot more pressure put on us because of where we go to school. It deffinitly makes it's harder I find because so much has already been done in Toronto nothing's quiet new to anyone anymore.
Me: Do you feel you get enough attention/discussion time from your prof's with projects?
Daniela: I do, I mean if you use the time they give you to your full advantage than yes. There is more than enough opportunity and time to discuss with your professor. During class and outside during their office hours.
Me: How many people per class do you have?
Daniela: Studio classes 18-30 and lectures there's like 200.

Strengths and Weaknesses

I’m currently in my second year of Graphic Design at Conestoga College and I can definitely say I have my strengths and weaknesses. For the most part I have issues with the programs we use like Photoshop and Illustrator.

This can be a huge obstacle in graphic design when you’re forced to work on the computer for practically everything possible. 

I find that I am far better at creating with my bare hands in the raw materials. Whether that be in painting, photographing, collage, or sculpture. 

What I didn’t seem to realise last semester was that you can marry the hand done product with the computer. My teacher from first year Patti Lemene, had ever-so-kindly brought to my attention that my skills in these programs were not to the highest level for the type of product that I was creating. “Why don’t you just actually do it by hand and photograph it?”

It’s best to know your weaknesses so you can use your strengths into play when you come across some obstacles.

How to photograph a glass bottle

image

This diagram shows you how to properly photograph a glass bottle. It was provided by my photography teacher and the notes were added after when I was in the planning stages. Adding a light behind the backdrop creates a radiant glowing effect to the bottle. Placing a black card to the right of the bottle creates visual interest in terms of creating black streaks.
