  1. 1. What is multimedia? MC11U Presentation Chad Ambo 620005966 April 20, 2009
  2. 2. Multimedia can be defined as media that combines different content forms such as text, audio, still images, animation and video to get a multi-faceted finished product. Compared to traditional media professionals in areas such as radio, multimedia professionals should possess various technical skills such as photography, web and graphic design.

  3. 3. Design: the process of creating and actualizing a plan for a product, structure or system by research, thought, modelling, adjustment and re-design. Multimedia professionals should be problem solvers with the ability to design. Designers make a deliberate attempt to create something that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. To create the flyer to the right, the graphic designer likely used research and analysis to conceptualize and create a flyer which : •Communicates the advertisement message. •Looks good and appeals to the target audience. In multimedia, design is central to working in graphics, motion, sound, typography and particularly web design.
  4. 4. Photography: the process, activity and art of creating still or moving pictures. Multimedia professionals use photographs for purposes such as: •Advertising •Fashion •Photo-journalism In multimedia , skills extend further than simple taking of pictures. Multimedia professionals engage in the manipulation of photographs using programs such as Adobe Photoshop. This pixel-based image editor can be used for simple procedures such as removing red-eye from photos, or advanced techniques such as painting on 3D models. In Web Design, photographs are classified as the observable content of the websites. They add color and imagery to multimedia websites and complement the audio, text and video content.
  5. 5. Typography: The art and techniques of arranging type, type design and modifying type glyphs. Multimedia professionals use typography for purposes such as: •Poster, sign and billboard designs •Advertising •Wordmarks and logos •Kinetic typography in motion pictures/films •Web page designs Typography places a premium on readability and legibility ie. Ease of reading the text presented on a webpage, flyer etc. Graphic designers focus on display typography, combining type with graphic elements and pictures. This is a key element of poster and flyer creation as well as web design. Display typography is commonly done by multimedia professionals using applications such as Adobe Photoshop which was discussed in the previous slide.
