Projects sample boards

  1. 1. Numerous times throughout the semester, you will be asked to prepare a small poster-type project. Each project will have specific content requirements, but the actual appearance of the presentation will often be up to you. Your presentations will be expected to meet or exceed certain standards.
  2. 2. You may be asked to add a title, your name, or labels on a project. Anytime you need to put wording on a poster, make sure it is done well. Always use a lettering template or a computer to add wording to your projects. No free-hand printing! No cursive lettering! Check all spelling.
  3. 3. Before you cut out a picture or mat, mark the lines. Use a pencil and a light touch… marks are hard to erase! You might be able to mark on the back side. Use a ruler or straight edge with a sharp pencil. Use a architect’s square or triangle for 90 degree corners. Ask for individual instruction on this if needed.
  4. 4. Whether you are cutting with a scissors, paper cutter, rotary cutter, or exacto-knife… cut straight! Mark the line you want to cut on, and be precise. Cut off any lines you might have drawn.
  5. 5. Jagged cutting line Corners are not all square
  6. 6. Notice the difference in the shape of the handles… the instruments on the right are scissors for cutting paper (black enamel handles) and the instrument above is a shears for cutting fabric (orange or blue plastic handles). Cut A rotary cutter is simply from the back of the blade, using the a thin blade, and can be point only at corners. bent with too many thicknesses of paper. Use care and work slowly. You must ALWAYS use an exacto-knife with a A traditional paper cutter magazine backing! They will cut off fingertips as will cut countertops and easily as paper. Think. floor tiles! Position Don’t cut too many sheets yourself above your at one time. cutting line. Always clean up your own paper scraps.
  7. 7. Suppose you need a picture of a window treatment, and you found this perfect example in a catalog. Think about how you can trim the picture to look it’s best on your project page. The printing on the picture detracts from draperies themselves. With careful planning, you can trim the picture to eliminate part or all of the printing. What you really want the viewer to see is still intact.
  8. 8. Victorian Furniture Style A picture glued to a piece of paper may not be very attractive. You may want to consider adding a mat to your picture. Choose a color to complement the background paper and the colors in your picture. The mat should extend about 1/4 inch beyond the edges of the picture. Victorian Furniture Style Victorian Furniture Style Matting is extra work, but well worth it! A mat on a picture or even a title or label has much more appeal. The mat will need to be cut as accurately as the picture itself.
  9. 9. When mounting the pictures on the background, horizontal and vertical lines are most often preferred over diagonal lines. As we’ll learn later, diagonal lines are interesting but can be confusing. Title of Project Title of Project by Name by Name When pictures line up at the right or left, the focus tends to be toward the center. Diagonal lines lead the eye away, and the focus does not remain on the page.
  10. 10. When laying out the pictures or samples on the background, think about the proportion of the space to the picture. You don’t want your page to be too empty or too full. This would be a good time to experiment with borders, the size of font, perhaps adding an additional picture, and single or double mats. TITLE OF PROJECT by Your Name TITLE OF PROJECT by Your Name
  11. 11. Decorating a project page should be considered carefully. Does the decoration improve the presentation or detract from it? Does it change your focus? Remember, if used, it should simply accent and complement your project, not overwhelm it. Limit the number of different colors on your page to two or three.

  12. 12. When using paste to attach pictures to your project, use care not to leave a gluey mess showing. Rubber cement is usually a good choice, as excess amounts can be rubbed off. Glue sticks might also be a good choice. Tape does not work well, and staples are unattractive. Duct tape or a glue gun might be used for attaching heavy samples such as carpet and upholstery. Paint in the lines! When working with any kind of glue or paint, be sure to clean your work area thoroughly when finished. There are other classes, some working with textile projects, that may not see the residue you left until it’s too late and their project is ruined.
  13. 13. Good displays take time and effort. Neatness always counts! Your presentation of pictures and samples is always as important as the pictures and samples themselves. If the client’s first impression isn’t good… they won’t maintain their focus long enough to study your work. While some samples are attached to the front, others might be visible through cut outs…giving a framed appearance.
