Student Feature: Dot

Professor Victoria Martin student work

Today I would like to feature Dot a graphic design student at Palm Beach State College, Lake Worth. He created this work as part of his end of term portfolio. The students created a surreal world. Dot created an environment based on a favorite video game.
The image above is the montage he created for the assignment. Below he includes a sidebar to illustrate all of the components found in the composition.

The bottom image shows how he mocked up a landing page, which included a thumbnail of his game artwork. Well done, Dot. As always, your layout and presentation are top-notch.

Frida Brooch

Frida brooch by Victoria Rose Martin

Today I thought I would share a little pin/brooch I made (for a change). There are so many ways to be creative. This pin measures about 4.5 inches. A mini oil painting, embroidered, and beaded.

When I spend too much time on the computers I enjoy doing something that gets my hands dirty. And I like creating things for me, instead of clients.

I created a series of these brooches in honor of the 100th anniversary of women having the right to vote. There are people out there putting up hurdles to try and take that right away. Don’t  waste your right to vote. Don’t like the government? You really cannot complain if you do not vote.  Remember, some of our grandmothers died fighting for their rights.

Now go and make something you are passionate about.

3D Text By Ashley R.

3D Type by student Ashley

The past few weeks have been absolutely crazy for nearly every human being on the planet. All of my classes at PBSC have been converted to online and we are carrying on.

We had a mini critique in Blackboard today for Photoshop 2, and I wanted to share this piece by Ashley. It’s not finished but she did a really great job creating 3D text in Photoshop. The group gave her feedback in how to improve (not a lot to improve on) .

It’s nice to see that life continues while we all practice social distancing. Stay safe everyone and we’re going to get through this. Stay safe xoxo
