TYPEFACE DRAWING


Drawing with Type

The activity was to find a nursery rhyme and to draw an illustration based on using text only.

I chose:

Kookaburra
Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree;
Merry, merry king of the bush is he.
Laugh, Kookaburra, laugh, Kookaburra,
Gay your life must be!
 (alternate: Save some gum for me!)

Origin
“Kookaburra” was written in 1932 by Australian music teacher, Marion Sinclair, who sold the song’s rights after winning a music competition in Victoria, Australia in 1934. The kookaburra of the rhyme is a native Australian kingfisher (bird), whose call sounds very similar to human laughter.


I drew a rough sketch of a kookaburra on paper first then opened up Photoshop and imported a black and white scan at 300 Dots per inch resolution. I then cropped and saved it as a JPEG image. I then created a new document in Illustrator and placed the image inside.With the image in illustrator a made it as template in its layer.I created another layer and named it tracing. I selected the Pen Tool and traced around the image, when I finished tracing,  I duplicated  the artwork layer, so that I would have a back up of the artwork, as once you put type on a path, you cannot convert back! I then created another layer and name it Text where I copied and pasted the nursery rhyme words.From there I then chose the Type on a path Tool and placed the cursor on the image and started copying and pasting each line of the nursery rhyme into and changing the fonts with different sizes to suit.

PHOTOSHOP MANIPULATION

Photo Word Composition

This was a fun assignment where we had to photograph alphabetical shapes that make up a word of your choice.

I went to the local museum to take photos and also got a few photos from the V8 Supercars race.

I cropped out the images to form letters in Photoshop and flipped them around to suit.

Flyer OR Flier


Producing a Flyer

Dimensional length (dl)flyer
View more documents from Webmaster .

Producing the flyer was quite a process.   I traced the map of the Cataract Gorge Reserve thanks to Google maps which I got a screenshot of in Illustrator. With the images I changed them to CMYK mode in photoshop and then adjusted the resolution to 300dpi for print and resized them.
I then created a new document in Indesign (DL - 100 x 210mm, portrait – front and back.)
After playing around for a few hours, creating seperate layers for text and images I finally created a flyer for Launceston's Cataract Gorge Reserve.

Map Trace Using Adobe illustrator CS6


Tracing a Map using Adobe illustrator CS6

1. Create a new document (A4, CMYK, and portrait.)

2. Select File > Place and choose 'tasmap.jpg'. Click "Link".

3. If the layers palette is not visible, go to Window > Layers. Rename Layer 1 to Map Template.
 Select the template option.

4. Make another layer and call it Outline of Map. The eye on the left side of each layer means you can see the layers on the screen. To hide a layer, click the eye......just like Photoshop.

5. At any stage you can click on the eye of any layer and the layer will no longer be displayed on screen. It will not even print if it is hidden - sometimes an advantage. Another press on the eye icon and it will return.

6. Create a new layer for each element of the map and then proceed to make your own map. Feel free to use gradients to add depth, choose your own typeface. Make it your own!

7. Finally, delete the template layer (Map Template). Go to View > Outline (Cmd/CTRL + Y), look for any stray anchor points and delete then change back… View > Preview (Cmd/CTRL + Y).

TASMANIA MAP TRACED WITH ADOBE iLLUSTRATOR
To get the colours of the map open the swatch library and select Earthtone. 

Summary of layer order for this map:

ILLUSTRATOR LAYER ORDER

Using the Pen Tool in Illustrator I traced around the outline of the map of Tasmania. 
The roads and land was also traced using the Pen Tool in their separate layers.
I used the Ellipse Tool to create dots for towns and cities.
I used the Type Tool to add in the names of places and for the ocean I went to the swatch library and selected a pattern.

Rationale

Blackoak Std - Has slab serifs and extremely wide letterforms and makes an arresting display type.

Helvetica Textbook LT Roman - Is bold wide.

Garamond - Legible and readable serif typeface.

Verdana -Readable at small sizes on a computer screen.

Franklin Gothic Book - is an extra-bold sans-serif type which can be distinguished from other sans serif typefaces, as it has a more traditional double-story g and a. Other main distinguishing characteristics are the tail of the Q and the ear of the g. The tail of the Q curls down from the bottom center of the letterform in the book weight and shifts slightly to the right in the bolder fonts.

Colour Society Project

Part B:


Use Photoshop or Illustrator to design a postcard (148mm by 105mm).
This project offers an opportunity for student designers to produce designs that show their impression of the colours of Australia. We all view colours differently, and we have all had differing experiences in life. Take this as an open brief to show what colour means to you.

Designing the postcard was a challenge. I thought to use the shape of the country and to incorporate it with Australia’s national flag. I then wanted to include the coat of arms of Australia with a green and gold football jersey. I included the colours and flags of each state.

ZODIACS



The origins of Chinese astrology remain a mystery. 

There are 12 signs named after 12 animals.

According to one legend, the Jade Emperor (Emperor of Heaven) called for a contest to invent a way of measuring time. 

All the animals of the kingdom were invited to cross a swiftly flowing river and reach a designated spot on the bank. 

The first 12 gained a permanent place in the Zodiac by having a year named after them. 

People born in that year would inherit some of the personality traits of that animal.
