2. If this project is assigned in the future, how might it be tweaked to enhance the overall learning experience for all students?
3. How have your thoughts about design changed through because of this project.
4. What changes would you make if you had the opportunity to re-work the image you created?
I recreated Paul Rand's "80's" poster. I was first drawn to the typography and simplistic design that still produced a bold statement. I wanted to bring what meant most to me into it, so I incorporated the story of when Jesus went to the dessert for 40 days to fast. I tried to stay with a similar color scheme in order to have a similar design. I also decided to use Photoshop to construct this so I could branch out from my watercolors and experience a new medium.
From this project I learned that a simple design can carry a bold statement. For future assignments I would keep this project fairly similar, but maybe with more structure. I would set it up like the one from Art 3 where we drew our supplies and artist. My thoughts on design stayed fairly similar, but really grew in the time spent looking at different artists and designs. I was very interested in the different approaches that each artist ventured to. If I could rework my image I would figure out how to make the apple flow more, but that is where I really struggled. Overall, I really enjoyed the project and what I got out of it.
