Student Showcase plan

Posted on Jul 29, 2015 by Amy Roberts Last Activity on Jul 29, 2015

I wanted to share a basic look at our Student Showcase that we hold each year.  We call it the Media MashUP and it is pretty simple to put together.  I have my graphic arts students create posters and programs to promote the event.  I use Google Docs to keep create an entry form. Students submit their work as a link on Youtube - so I don't have to deal with any files until I am getting ready for the award show night.  I have my Animation students create show opens and animation interstitials for the award show (ie: AND THE WINNER IS!) We rent a red carpet, have T-shirts made(graphic design students work) and have our photography students do red carpet photos.  I hold the event in our auditorium in Spring on the last Friday night of classes. I have 2 senior student act as hosts.  It's a great way to end the year.  Here is the link for my entry form: Our Facebook page with photos fro... Read More

How To Create A Pictogram Chart In Adobe Illustrator

Posted on Jul 7, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on Jul 7, 2015

It is inevitable. One day your client calls and asks if you could include a chart in an illustration. This was one of those tasks I tended to regard as a “Necessary Evil” because it meant I had to find a way to be creative with the pie, bar and scatter charts that tended to litter Annual Reports. This all changed with the rise of Big Data and Infographics. Suddenly the bars, slices and points were populated with amazing graphics that communicated the data in an easily-understood and engaging manner. One of the more common tools used for creating these projects is Adobe Illustrator, which has had a Graphing tool for many years. Though it started out as a rather simple chart creation tool over the years, as data visualization took hold, this tool became an important element in the data visualization arsenal. Instead of bars, illustrations of buildings and other Illustrator vector artwork can tell the story  more easily than a single-color bar on a graph. In this “... Read More

How To Create SVG Images In Adobe Illustrator

Posted on Jun 22, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on Jun 27, 2015

The beauty of vectors is the fact they are “Device Independent”. By that I mean they are not tied to pixels on the screen and can be scaled with no loss of resolution. With the ubiquity of mobile devices and the rise of “Small is good and fast!” there has been a corresponding growth of the use of SVG files . SVG stands for Scalable Vector Graphics and is a web format developed by the W3Cthat first appeared in 1998. I first encountered this format in 2000 when Adobe introduced its Macromedia Flash competitor – LiveMotion – at FlashForward. A common question is “How do I create an SVG image?” Essentially the vectors are converted to an XML document andthere are a number of applications such as Inkscape,GoogleDocs Drawings,Sketch3 and Adobe Illustrator. The reason I am using Illustrator is simply because the apps all have similar options and tools. What are some uses for SVG? They can be used for situations such as: Graphics created in a vector drawing appli... Read More

How To Create A Long Shadow In Adobe Illustrator CC 2014

Posted on Jun 22, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on Jun 27, 2015

Long shadows are a hallmark of the trend to Flat Design on the web which is a reaction to the Skeuomorphic trend that was led by Apple. This trend was common through the use of depth, drop shadows and so on, to imitate objects. We saw it in the stitching around a calendar and the use of “wood” in a bookcase icon in the Mac OS. Flat design, which first appeared when Microsoft released its Zune player in 2006 and migrated to the Windows phone four years later, goes in the opposite direction and is characterized by a minimalist use of simple elements, typography and flat colors. Though there are those who seem to regard Flat Design as a passing trend it can’t be discounted. Especially when Microsoft builds this design standard into it’sMetro interfaceand Apple moves it into both its Mac OS and iOS devices. In this “How To” we are going to create a long shadow for a Twitter button. Let’s get started.
