PowerSchool-SchoolMessenger Integration

Posted on Nov 10, 2015 by Beverly Baker Last Activity on Nov 10, 2015

Down to the wire on this one.  I had a lot of fun using After Effects for the title page the animation screen.  In fact, I hope to find time to go back and use stills with animations for the rest of project rather that camera video.  While I drew I drew on Marks skill set to do the title page, Deila skills helped me through the second sequence's animations.  I also played around with orientation animations and even clip art. A word of thanks to all the facilitators for the course, I enjoyed it ever so much!  Can't wait for games tomorrow! PowerSchool-SchoolMessenger Integration

Design a Record Label

Posted on Nov 9, 2015 by Claire Richards Last Activity on Nov 12, 2015

Record Labels papers are an example of how typography (fonts) can be used to create a dynamic design. Like all design elements fonts can become synonymous with a particular era and their form can sometimes even reflect the attitudes of the times. Project Use shape and text tools to create a record label for a real or fictitious band. Create a coloured circle in Photoshop. Hold the shift key to keep a circle rather than an oval. Leave a space in the middle for a 1cm hole. Including images and drawn elements is optional. You can type on a path by hovering the Type tool over the edge of a shape. Print it out at exactly 4inches (10cm) and cut it out and glue it on a record. Extension Projects: Create a square design for a cardboard sleeve. Create an artwork inspired by a piece of music.
