This project was the most tedious yet. I had to rearrange my ads many times. I tried to keep up consistency throughout the magazine by using the same font throughout other than accent words, and by keeping the same color scheme for the cover and the contents page. I tried to make it appeals to LSU student my using a tiger on the front page and using a purple and gold color scheme. I was a little confused on where to start the page numbers. The only thing I am not overly satisfied with is the men’s fashion article, but I tried many different things and that was the most appealing layout.

When trying to redo the ad, I tried to keep the same colorful, girlly essence of the original ad, but in a more uniformed way. I corrected the proximity, as the original ad displayed no form of hierarchy. I also toned down the in your face craziness, by sticking to one font and only two colors. I liked how the ad was colorful, so I tried to keep up that look but I turned down the transparency of the colorful background so that it did not over power, the information. I chose to omit some of the phrases on the original ad as I did not feel that the portrayed professionalism and some were just down right raunchy. I am pretty satisfied with how my ad turned out the only thing that I real do not like is that there is a hard edge on the image of the face, I couldn’t figure out how to blend it.

I chose the word “outgoing” because I think of myself as a very outgoing person so I thought it only fit. I chose a novelty font because when I think of outgoing I think “outside the box” and I believe that is the feeling you get when using Blackmoor LET. I to place the text dead center of the page, because when your outgoing, you aren’t afraid to stand out from the crowd. Which is why the hot pink color of the text is perfect, because it catches your eye and demands to be noticed. word vis comm

I actually really liked this assignment. It was fun to come up with a business name and idea and figure out which fonts and colors worked and which ones really really did not. The most difficult part of this assignment was learning to add the smoke. It proved to be very tedious to have to keep switching layers and sending things to the back. But I figured out how to change the transparency of certain layers and I am pleased with the final outcome. Burkett_businesscards
