IMCP Print Module

I am currently enrolled in a 9-month certificate program to study interactive media and graphic design. The Interactive Media Certificate Program, aka IMCP, is broken up into 3 modules. The first module incorporates Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and inDesign together in order to make digital compositions that will eventually be printed. Due to the nature of the output, all of these compositions are using the CMYK color mode. If you’d like to view the interactive PDF of all these works, please click here to view my print portfolio. Otherwise, here are my work samples so far:

Assignment: The point of this assignment was to research the history of a specific font and then incorporate it into a design. I chose Lucida font and decided to use smooth elements with a cool color palate. One of the requirements in this assignment was to use the whole alphabetical and numerical list of characters and a couple of symbols in our design.

Assignment: For this assignment we had to take a photograph of ourselves doing an activity of our choosing, and then turn it into a vector image. We then had to stylize it to match the old-school iPod commercials. To do this, I traced myself “blogging” using the pen tool and then colored my silhouette black and made the background bright pink.
