Yr 10 gcse graphics type face

  2. 2. How will my work be marked? AO1  Develop: studying work by other artists or designers AO2  Refine: doing experiments to find out what works best for your ideas AO3  Recording: making sketchbook drawings, notes, photographs and presentations AO4  Present: offering a final outcome
  3. 3. Brief: Type Face You are a freelance designer and Beaumont School have asked you to create some large scale Art work to represent Beaumont students. The criteria are that it should be a portrait and include text. Portraiture is one of the most common themes throughout Art history and typography is key to Graphic Design. This assignment will help you combine these two themes and develop your skills, gain knowledge and understanding of the constraints of a wide variety of media and build on previous techniques learnt. You will use a range of materials to investigate your ideas and will incorporate techniques from art history. You will use yourself and friends as a starting point on each task. You will be asked to link your work to an artist’s and designer’s work, responding to their work and analysing their artistic style. This research will form the basis of all your final pieces. Texture, colour, shape, form and scale are all important formal elements you will be studying. Your sketchbook will be used to record all investigations and processes you learn. Design Brief
  4. 4. Create your own Brief Task One Use the outline below to help you write your own Brief…   I have been hired by Beaumont School as a freelance designer to create  exciting, original Art work that reinvents the idea of the portrait using  typography. My Art must represent Beaumont students and combine text  and image. Throughout this assignment I will use a range of materials to investigate  several themes of portraiture, incorporating techniques from art history and  using myself as a starting point on each task. I will link my work to artists and designers responding to their work and  analysing their artistic style. This research will help and inspire me to produce  my final outcomes. Texture, colour, shape, form and scale are all important formal elements I  will be studying. I will use my  sketchbook  to record my investigations and  processes throughout this assignment.

What to do … 1.Open up Photoshop CS5 (this is under the Art folder) 2. Create a contact sheet (thumbnails) of all your portrait images and print this A4 size. Choose one or two of your favourite images. Open a ‘New’ document. Make the width 210 mm and the height 297 mm (resolution 72 pixels/inch) Go to ‘File’ ‘Automate’ ‘Contact Sheet’
  8. 8. 3. Open a ‘New’ document. Make the width 210 mm and the height 297 mm (resolution 72 pixels/inch)
  9. 9. 4. On this document type words that represent you. For example. friends, football, pizza, graphics… (save this document) 5. Open up your portrait image. Use the crop tool like this and write in the measurements width 210 mm and height 297mm (resolution 72 pixels/inch) and click crop.. (save this document)
  10. 10. 6. Drag the portrait image on top of your text document. Move the image so it fits exactly over the text. 7. On the right hand tool bar change the ‘Fill’ percentage so the text shows through under your portrait image.
