I am only 8 courses away from graduating! This semester I am taking GRD 241 – Graphic Design III. So, I will be updating my blog on a regular basis showcasing some of the things I am working on. Hopefully this will become a regular thing even after the class ends.
This week, our first assignment was geared towards branding. We were given a logo and only 30 minutes to research and throw together something for the “client”. One of the branding items had to be a shirt. I did a google search for swim companies and products. Here I was able to get ideas about things that swimmers use. Besides the shirt, I picked a swim cap, towel, and girls one piece swimsuit. I was able to gather generic images with a quick search. I cleaned them up in Photoshop, imported the image into Illustrator, imported the logo and created a vector image with the logo. This allowed me place the logo on the different items and size them accordingly without loosing the integrity of the image. I choose to include the products all on one branding page to really show off what can be done. This is more like an overview. I don’t feel that the image needed text explanations as it is pretty self explanatory. I would have liked to have done more, but 30 minutes goes quickly!
Overall, I am happy with it. I feel like I am missing something… but hopefully I covered all my bases.
