DOT AND LINE
Using zero, one, or many lines or dots in black and white we had to visually communicate a variety of words. The words I communicated can be found under the images.
TEXT AND LETTER
For this project, I visualized the word music in four different ways. First, I used the traditional soundbars with a gray gradient. Second, I wrote the word music in cursive down the main line of a treble clef. Third, I used a variety of musical instruments and music to physically create the word music. Lastly, I used a variety of symbols and a rainbow gradient with a black background.
Similar to the typography project, the object iteration has a variety of different ways to show an object, in my case a dolphin. First, is the simple single line drawing where I decide to have the p be expressed as a dolphin. Second, I created a collage using the pages to the book based on the movie “Dolphin Tale” with a cut-out white dolphin in contrast to the book. Third, is the origami dolphin I created out of a piece of printer paper. Next, I created a crayon art of a dolphin and baby based on the children’s artist Eric Carle. Lastly, I created a dolphin out of the many species of dolphins around the world.
This project really intrigued me because being a math minor, infographics have always been one of my favorite ways to interpret data. I focused on the mental health of college students for my project and found a variety of shocking statistics.
To wrap up the semester, I created a book of the process we went through for each project from our many sketches to in-progress designs to the final result and our final reflections on the progress. To tie it all together, we created the front and back covers.
