Project 9: Portfolio

Project Corrections / Time spent: I spent just over two hours designing a new creative ad.  The main focus of this design was to improve my skills with the magic wand, lasso, magnetic lasso. I cut out a photo with those tool and also used the redefine edge and eraser tool.  In previous projects, this has been a skill that I have struggled with and I think that this cut out is a huge improvement. Currently it takes me a long time to achieve that but through practice I know these tools will come more quickly.

creative project

Message: To professionally display all of my designs from the visual media course.

Audience: To show any future employers my design skills.

Top Thing Learned: I learned that the purpose of a portfolio and its cover pages are that it needs to be designed beautifully and professionally but not distract from the designs themselves.

Future application of Visual Media: I work at an adventure park where I hope to now apply my skills in designing.  Some areas I see myself working in are website designing, signs, and brochures.

  1. Amberlie your portfolio looks great! I really like the changes you made with the type. Interesting how you went from a formal decorative font to a sans-serif choice. I like it because it is much easier to read. Also your edit with adding the branch at the bottom of your content is brilliant and looks awesome! You should be very proud of the growth you have made this semester and I am sure if you stuck with it you have a great career in graphic design. Here is the link to my portfolio – (your suggestion to add a variety of color helped a ton! Thanks.
