Post Modernism poster

Modernism poster

 

For this assignment, we had to create a design for a graphic design-related quote in two styles: Modernism and Postmodernism. The Modernism poster was easy for me to make. I have learned to simplify my work since I’ve been a student, and have really gotten used to creating straight forward and functional designs. The Postmodernism poster was a little bit more difficult. I felt like I was going against everything I had a learned. It was fun though to venture outside my comfort zone and do something a little bit different.

Book Covers

 

 

Thirteen Moons book cover

Cold Mountain book cover

These book covers were our second project. The assignment was to create two book covers that worked well together. At first I had trouble making the covers different enough to be seen as separate stories. Eventually I figured out that the books would look good together with similar colors, and the same number of basic elements. I also used the same illustration style for both covers. I tried to create movement with the woman’s scarf in Cold Mountain, and with the horses in Thirteen Moons. My Inspiration for the covers came from the stories themselves.

Re-design Project

My redesigned version of SUN-MAID box

 

For this project, we had to redesign a package of our choice. It was my favorite project this far. I found that I really love package design. I chose to redesign the Sun-maid raisin box. The most recent Sun-maid design in my opinion is a failure. The company tried too hard to modernize the brand, and in doing so lost the vintage/traditional feel that made Sun-maid so special. I tried to bring history back into the design by using the original Sun-maid girl in the center, and adding a little background to the brand on the side flap. I also made the nutrition facts from scratch. I thought this was important because the healthiness of Sun-maid raisins is such a large part of their brand; therefore I really wanted the information to be accurate. Things about the brand that I kept constant from the actual package were the red background and the yellow Logo. I changed the layout quite a bit and also tried to make the back of the box more interesting to read. All in all I am happy with the way it came out.

Arabian Nights poster

This is a poster that I made for the Arabian Nights Play. Everyone in the class made one. It was the  first project of the year and I had a lot of fun with it. It was cool to design  a poster for an actual event, rather than a hypothetical one. I wanted there to be an air of mystery, while still revealing Scheherazade’s playful but strategic manner.
