Weekend Warriors x REI

Posted by in Uncategorized

For Jill’s Type 2 final project, we had to pick between 4 topics to make a self mailer envelope. I chose to do REI and the topic was to cater to the working professionals that want to do something active over the weekends since they’re so busy with work during the week days. I wanted to focus more on image heavy visuals this time around, so I scoped online for high resolution pictures depicting various activities that REI’s customers would be attracted to. Jill also wanted us to mock up…read more

Skye Skincare Sensual Series

Posted by in Uncategorized

For our final project for Packaging, I chose to do a fictional Seattle skincare company called Skye. Our parameters were to create a 3 product lineup, a logo, and concept for our chosen company. Since Skye specializes in cannabis oils, I thought why can’t we do a sensual series for lovers? THC, an ingredient to get one feeling relaxed and possible aroused, would enhance the sexual experience. My demographic were upper-middle class 25-50 year olds living in an urban, liberal environment such as Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and…read more

W is for Waves

Posted by in Uncategorized

Final project for Production was absolutely something I know I’m not good at. We had to make a pop up book! Even though I had trouble cutting, folding, and painting, I received the letter W which we had to use to narrate our pop up book. I decided to do Waves because it is a song by Kanye West. Also, since Kanye’s last name starts with W… It works!

Question Reality

Posted by in Uncategorized

Photoshop. is. a. beast. There are so many tools and so many ways to approach editing. Our assignment for Productions was to make a poster for a fictional museum that depicted an image that would make the user question whether it is real or not. My poster symbolizes the journey that my classmates and I went through this year in school. We drink tons of coffee to stay up and stay focused but we also need this summer break coming up. The poster shows a surfer ready to surf over…read more

PUR Gum Redesign

For Packaging, our second packaging project was to redesign a current brand on the market. PUR Gum is based from Canada and they strive to provide their customers with natural ingredients. They don’t use aspartame which is a controversial sweetener in a lot of sugar free items. Our parameters was that we had to cater to a specific niche of people. I was given smokers or people that want to quit smoking. Instead of going the nicotine gum route, I wanted to go for a more natural way to fight…read more

Swiss Style Poster over a Cup of Tea??

Posted by in Uncategorized

According to the International Poster website, the International Typographic Style was, “A new graphic design style emerged in Switzerland in the 1950s that would become the predominant graphic style in the world by the ’70s. Because of its strong reliance on typographic elements, the new style came to be known as the International Typographic Style. The style was marked by: 1) the use of a mathematical grid to provide an overall orderly and unified structure; 2) sans serif typefaces (especially Helvetica, introduced in 1961) in a flush left and ragged…read more

Boom! Headshot!

Posted by in Uncategorized

  So, for our Production class, Jason was teaching us how to do masking and wanted us to take a selfie of ourselves and break them into squares. We fill in those squares with objects that can match that specific section of our faces. This was a relatively smooth project to cruise through except for the fact that finding and capturing high quality photos are tricky. I used a lot of nature photos such as from the beach or a grassy part of a hill at the park. I really…read more

W(h)ine or cheese?

Posted by in Uncategorized

WINE LABELS! That was our first project for Packaging Class. I was given Kiona Vineyards which is a real vineyard in Washington State near the Columbia Valley. Kiona is specifically in the Red Mountain AVA which is a part of the Columbia Valley. Kiona does mean “brown hills” or the “Red Mountain” of the area in a Native American language. Robynne wanted us to target a demographic of 21-35 year olds because they don’t drink as much wine as the older audience. For my wine labels, I chose to do…read more

Spring Quarter Beginnings

Posted by in Uncategorized

This year is flying by fast! I can’t believe we are in our last quarter as 1st Years. I’ve learned so much but also have so much to learn. This quarter will be definitely more difficult than the last two in terms of projects. In Graphic Production 3, we will be learning more about Photoshop and that concerns me because Photoshop is its own beast. There are so many tools on photoshop with subtools in their respective categories. For Interaction 3, we have Eduardo again and I’m sure we will…read more

What is Energy?

Posted by in Uncategorized

For our final video project, Tim and I teamed up to tackle a video with the topic of energy. After a few brainstorming sessions and a frustrating time with Seattle’s unpredictable weather, we came up with the following video:   Concept: We thought about what exactly energy is and after research, there are just many different forms of it. We decided to do a much broader perspective by introducing the life of a SCCA student during finals week. Sometimes, we are at school all day up until night. We see…read more
