Signage Prescendet Studies

For this assignment we were to find 3 examples of office signage that we enjoy.  Here are mine:

I chose the above sign for the materials used.  I enjoy the use of frosted glass and metal and the way that transparency and shine levels change.

I enjoy the font and simple graphic nature in this sign above.

 

This sign is very easy to read.  I like the gray, black, and blonde wood color scheme too.

Floor Plans for Rendering

For this assignment we were to scale and trace with tools an office floor plan and elevation.  We are going to hand render these and manipulate them for the next segment of the class.

Office space Perspective Renderings

In class we had a review of color, and many of the different combinations you get from mixing them.  We had created an office space in sketchup and were assigned to render 12 different color schemes.  The two below are what I would consider my best ones.  I do know that for them to be more successful I need to add shadow and light, as well as reflection and more detail in general.  That will apply to the next round.  The concept of the office space is Hummingbird flight, which was discussed in earlier posts.

Hummingbird Flight

For this assignment we drew concepts from a hat.  I happened to get Hummingbird Flight.  With this concept we were to draw an abstract image with different materiality  that reflected our concept.  I chose wood, stone, and glass and created a composition with slightly jarring quick movements.

S.E.A.C Poster Contest

One of our outside of class assignments was to design a poster for the SEAC conference.  This is an Entrepreneurship conference held on our campus yearly.  We had a long list of required items all of which I included.  The theme was a rainbow.

Nametag for a “client”

For our first assignment for Visual Communication we were assigned the task of designing a name tag.  This is a familiar task for us, however; this time we had to design one for a classmate.  I was paired with Laura Kimmel.  Laura and I have worked together on several projects and developed an understanding of each other over the past year.  When we spoke Laura told me that she liked something simple with a focus on Line.  I was inspired by a scarf that Laura wears in the studio.  There were four requirements for the name tag.

1.  Understand who you are designing for

2.  Creat a composition that satisfies the client’s expectations

3.  Create a composition that reflects your design style

4.  Introduce through visual means

Both Laura and I were pleased with the outcome.
