Student Portfolio One

  1. 1. First Semester Portfolio Table of Contents 1. Magazine Cover: a. https://www.behance.net/gallery/29312071/-Free-download-Mock-up- Books-cover b. https://www.mockupworld.co/free/magazine-on-table-mockup/ c. For this design I used some Photoshop to create the dissolve around the model and InDesign to finalize the cover product. This design might be used, as represented in the mockup, as the cover of a magazine. I used the alignment design principle when placing the text. Aligning the text with the borders of the page allows the picture of the model to remain the center of attention while also presenting information. I also used the contrast design principle using the gold and white color against the green background making the words appealing and readable. While creating this design, I made a gold rectangle with a mask on in and used the paint brush tools after altering the settings to get the dissolved look. Looking back on making this design, instead of using the paint brush tool to create the design, I would have instead used an outer glow effect on the layer with the dissolve blending option as I used in later projects. 2. Weather: a. https://www.mockupworld.co/free/female-hand-holding-iphone-6- mockup/ b. https://graphictwister.com/downloa/ c. For this design I used Photoshop to create an interactive look on a flat design. This design can be used as a weather app for many different kinds of electronics such as on iPhones, Androids, Apple Watches, etc. I used the contrast design principle by bolding the lines around “Friday” and the hour by hour weather display in order to create the interactive feel as though the different days would be clickable to navigate to that day’s weather. I also used the alignment design principle when placing the words and boxes in order to make everything organized and give the design a clean and easy-to-use feel. When creating this design, I learned how to use the templates online to place your design. For the magazine design, I cropped and place my image over the mock-up image which was not the easiest way. With this design, I learned how to click on the previous design in order to easily place my design to fit the mockup. If I redid this flat design, I would have added a drop shadow on the box around “Friday” in order to contribute to the 3-dimensional and interactive display. 3. Tactical Response Flyer:
  2. 2. a. https://graphictwister.com/a4-paper-psd-mockup/ b. https://graphictwister.com/downloa/ c. For this design, I used Photoshop to create a design that can be used as a flyer, an online design, a billboard, or many other things. I used the alignment design principle in order to create a flow and easy readability. I also used the repetition design principle when using the orange and black colors. I chose these colors because of the Counter Response logo colors. When creating this design, would have changed some of the graphics in order to make the design less crowded and allow for a better flow. 4. Billboard a. https://www.mockupworld.co/free/building-billboards-mockup-bundle/ b. http://freedesignresources.net/free-poster-billboard-mockups/ c. When creating this design, I used Photoshop to create the simple Nike ad. When creating this design, I used the contrast design principle with the white and the green colors that stand out against the black for easy readability and a color pop that draws the audience into the ad. I also used repetition with the green and white colors for a flow and simplicity for the ad that gets the point across quickly. When creating this design, I learned how to create the dissolving outer glow around the shoe that helped me in other designs later on. 5. Business Card a. https://www.mockupworld.co/free/business-cards-in-hand-mockup/ b. http://www.graphicsfuel.com/dload/?dlink=2017/01/Business-Card-In- Hand-Mockup c. When creating this design, I used an InDesign template to create a design that could be used as a business card. I used the repetition of the red and black colored font and that also is contrasting against the white background. When creating this design, I learned how to use InDesign, since it was my first ever InDesign project. If I redid this design now, I would have centered the text “MIT Tough Team USA” and “OCR Racing Team” underneath the MIT Tough Team logo. 6. Calendar a. https://www.freecreatives.com/mockups/calendar-design-mockups.html b. http://www.designbolts.com/2014/12/25/free-wall-calendar-2015-design- template-mockup-psd/ c. When creating this design, I used Photoshop to make a small and simple design to be used as a desktop calendar, wall calendar, or any other kind of calendar. When creating this design, I used the alignment principle in order to create a flow for the numbers of the months. I also used the repetition of the color pink to create a girly and happy mood. When
  3. 3. creating this design I would have changed the level of contrast between the background and the words in order to create better readability. 7. T-shirt a. https://www.mockupworld.co/free/male-mannequin-with-t-shirt-mockup/ b. http://www.mediafire.com/file/zz9q237k001nya2/FreeLongSleevesTShirtM ockup.zip c. When creating this design, I used Photoshop to create a simple Skills USA logo that included our state name. The design uses the dissolve outer glow effect that I had recently learned in previous designs. I also used the contrast design principle with the different United States colors to create a patriotic feel for the design and used the repetition of these colors throughout. When creating this design, I would go back and change the overall logo design because I do not feel that the logo is something that would be attractive to someone to want to buy the shirt. 8. Ticket: a. https://www.behance.net/gallery/30717209/Free-ticket-mockup b. https://www.dropbox.com/s/4chiz6uqur1syow/Ticket%20mockup%20(v.ke tom).psd?dl=0 c. When creating this design, I used Photoshop in order to use the different blending options for the background images on the tickets. I used the repetition of the team colors and the contrast between the gray and the red colors throughout the design. When creating this design I would have added a drop shadow onto the words “The Ohio State Buckeyes” in order to add more detail up top and “balance” the design. 9. Flyer Soup for seniors: a. https://www.freecreatives.com/mockups/flyer-mockups.html b. http://bluemonkeylab.com/portfolio/free-flyer-poster-mock-up/ c. When creating this design, I used Photoshop. I used a simple background color and placed a bowl of soup that I used to choose the colors for the text. I used the contrast design principle because the colors of the text contrast to the yellow background. The design can be used as a flyer and the yellow background helps attract attention. I would take off the drop shadow on the middle brown colored text because it kind of makes the design too busy when its purpose is to present the information quickly and simply. 10. Selfie: a. https://www.mockupworld.co/free/artistic-photo-frame-mockup/ b. https://dealjumbo.com/downloads/free-artistic-frame-mockup/ref/214/
  4. 4. c. When creating this design I used Photoshop to create a simplistic yet creative lettering design. This design can be used as a picture. I used the proximity design principle by placing the design in the middle. I also used contrast because of the contrast between the black and white colors that adds to the simplistic feel of the design. I learned how to manipulate letters with other shapes while creating this design. 11. Personal Logo: a. https://www.mockupworld.co/free/illuminated-shop-sign-mockup/ b. http://www.graphicsfuel.com/dload/?dlink=2016/12/Outdoor-Signage- Mockup-PSD c. When creating this design I used Photoshop to create a simple design that uses the contrast design principle with the two blues and the gold halo. This is a simple design that has my initials and also incorporates the originality of my last name. I also used the proximity design principle by placing the letters in the middle of the design. I learned how to create a simple outer glow on the halo to create the angelic feel. 12. Bubble cake: a. https://www.mockupworld.co/free/building-billboards-mockup-bundle/ b. http://freedesignresources.net/free-poster-billboard-mockups/ c. This design is part of a gif that I had created in Photoshop. I used the contrast alignment principle with the contrast between the pink and the white colors. I also used the proximity design principle when placing the sparkles and the words “Holiday Specials”. When creating this design I found picture of sparkles and placed them. Instead I would have placed a box with no fill and added an outer glow with a dissolve to create more evenly placed sparkles and a better, more consistent flow. 13. Family Photo: a. https://www.mockupworld.co/free/gallery-picture-mockup/ b. https://docs.google.com/uc?id=0BwLVIhYkq_iVYzhaRUFORjlaNFU&export=do wnload c. In this design, I used a picture of my sister, my dad and I at Fungi Bay in Canada. I had used this picture earlier in the year with the 30 day project and had placed edits on it to whiten teeth and to sharpen the image. I used the contrast design principle when whitening our teeth, I learned that I didn’t need to brighten my sister’s teeth as much because the contrast with her braces made her teeth look noticeably whitened. I also used the alignment design principle when placing the image in the center of the frame. 14. Oil Painting: a. https://www.mockupworld.co/free/ornamental-frame-mockups/
  5. 5. b. http://www.pixeden.com/psd-mock-up-templates/ornamental-psd-frame- mockup c. I used Photoshop to create this design and used the oil paint filter. I used the repetition and contrast design principles by making sure that the filter was not over applied and the image was still noticeable and the repetition of the oil painting filter in both of the frames. I learned how to create the oil paint effect in Photoshop, however looking back I would have applied this filter to one vertical picture and one horizontal picture so that they pictures fit better into the frames. 15. Holiday Card: a. https://www.mockupworld.co/free/seasonal-greeting-card-mockup/ b. http://www.graphicsfuel.com/dload/?dlink=2016/10/Holiday-Greeting-Card- Mockup-PSD c. I used some Photoshop and InDesign to create this card. I followed a tutorial for InDesign. I also used the InDesign tutorial for snowflakes with the choice projects for the second nine weeks. This design can be used as a seasonal card to be send out as a thank you card or as a many other kinds of holiday greeting cards. When creating this design I learned how to create layers in InDesign. Looking back I would have used a different, more seasonal font. I used the Alignment design principle to align the snowflakes with the words so that the design had a flow that lead to easy readability. I also used the contrast between the blues and the whites that also created a seasonal mood.
