My Graphic Design 2 class is in it’s second week and the students already have two projects under their belts. Well done. One of the projects was a 6 x 9 postcard for a Jazz concert. And my students know to never come with just one version.
Here are two created by Jen. During crit this first student (Jen) said that “she had never made an illustration in Adobe Illustrator before”.
I am very proud of both of these students because they both stated that they felt they had a weaknesses in a particular area and wanted to challenge themselves to push their comfort levels and try something different. The card below was created by Monica who challenged herself to explore typography. She chose a serif typeface that she felt reflected NYC Jazz clubs. I really like how she rotated the type to echo the stem of the J. She also rotated the order of the word Jazz. Did you notice? When I think of Jazz I think of music that sort of skips all over the place. So the A being in the middle makes sense to me. Two very different approaches and both successful in different ways. Well done ladies.
