Microsoft Power Point Design Portfolio

  1. 1. Design Portfolio Featuring the past projects of Dana Gordon, 2008 graduate of Samford University
  2. 2. “A Piece of My Heart” tells the story of six American nurses and the experiences they had during the Vietnam War. These nurses are in a direct relationship with the audience. They have a great, urgent need to tell their stories, and it is from this urgent need to communicate that the style of the play evolves. The set for the play itself is a presentational-style piece. All design elements in the set therefore conform to this style. Nothing in the text is directly illustrated but instead is abstractly or suggestively shown.

  6. 6. Collage of Considered Idea for Brick Texture Materials
  7. 7. The Space The play was held in the Bolding Studio within the Leslie Wright Center on Samford’s Campus. The space presented challenges for an effective set design not just for it’s small stage size (33 by 17 feet), but because part of the set had to be mobile in order to be stored away during the day. The stage was used during the day for choir and piano rehearsals by the music department.
  8. 8. First Rough Sketches
  9. 9. and Once I had the idea of intersecting platforms of different sizes and levels, the biggest challenge was creating a 3D model and construction documents-in that order. A program called Sketch-Up greatly helped me with putting together my idea for documents- Sketch- what the set would actually look like once completed. From there, I was able to obtain measurements within the computer to then help me develop plans in Auto Cad to aid the builders of the set.

  19. 19. AutoCad Sketches for Flats Similar to my previous design project, the stage space for the Birmingham Festival Theatre was also small, roughly the same size as Bolding Studio. For this project, I was mainly dealing with layouts for flats to create an interior home scene, which would be styled according to the early 1900’s. As you can see, three doors were used…one for the front door and two for the bedroom doors.
