Dance Love Sing Live

So I just got a poster similar to this for my common room.  I love it so much, it’s so inspiring. I love the different colors and the flowers they are so bright and vibrant. “Dance as though no one is watching, Love as though you’ve never been hurt before, Sing as though no one can hear you, Live as though heaven is on Earth.”

Project #2

Time for the second project!  This time we were assigned to make book jackets for 2 books by the same author.  I was given the author Charles Frazier.  The books I have to design jackets for are Cold Mountain and Thirteen Moons.  I have not read either, although I have seen the movie Cold Mountain, so this will help me in my design process.  I know the summary of Thirteen Moons and what it is generally about.  I have started reading it so I am getting a little bit better idea of what the book and the characters are about.  Hopefully this will help me design an awesome cover!

First project!

I am taking Advanced Graphic and Publication Design and our first project was to make a poster for the play for the theatre department.  The play is “She Stoops To Conquer” by Oliver Goldsmith.  It’s about an upper class woman who pretends to be part of the lower class so a certain upper class man will talk to her and court her.  I went with the idea of her being upper class but to this man being lower class.  I have a fancy dress combined with a dress of a maid and have that as the focus of the poster.  I took the yellow of the dress and lightened it and made it the background color.  I also added a texture behind the yellow to make it pop out a little and make it not look so flat.

Time for a Blog!

So this is where I will try to keep you updated on projects I’m working on and ideas I have.  Hope you enjoy it! 🙂
