How To Kern In InDesign CC 2014

Posted on May 29, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on May 29, 2015

Nothing is more disturbing than seeing a headline or a sign that just doesn’t “read right”. The issue is always the typography. It could be poor choice of font, the colour, the size but, more often than not, the kerning of the letters is the culprit.  Whoever set the type wasn’t paying attention to the opening words of Robert Bringhurst’s masterwork, “ The Elements of Typographic Style”.  Right in the opening paragraph he states: “Typography is a craft by which the meanings of text (or its absence of meaning) can be clarified, honoured and shared or knowingly disguised”.

Package Design: Mini Cereal Box

Posted on May 14, 2015 by Fred Benitez Last Activity on May 29, 2015

I saw a great project by Lori Cullen on Creativity With Cereal, and I wanted to share my take on this lesson. In this project, students will create a new breakfast cereal brand, logo and build a mock packaging design. The students seemed to enjoy creating something original and seeing it to completion in the form of a mini cereal box. You could always take the project up a notch by mixing in some health education and requiring actual nutritional information based off research.  As educators, we are lucky to have a community like Adobe EdEx so we can share all of our ideas and find inspiration from others. Thanks Lori Cullen!

Cubeecraft: Paper Characters

Posted on May 14, 2015 by Fred Benitez Last Activity on May 29, 2015

I first used cubeecraft for downloading and printing characters from their website and to display around my teacher desk. I quickly realized just how fascinated my students were by them. I started by implementing these little guys into my classroom/print shop safety lesson. After we went over guidelines for using exacto knives and print settings, I allowed my students to print, cut and fold their cubeecrafts. Then one day, I had a student ask if he could create his own character! Lucky for us, cubeecraft had a standard template to use. This would become one of the most popular projects in my class and it teaches students on many different design levels.  Check out the website to get an idea of what they have, and try it out for yourself first. http://www.cubeecraft.com/ Then use the template attached to let your students design their own character!

DPS Overview, resources to the presentation

Posted on May 10, 2015 by Lukas Engqvist Last Activity on May 10, 2015

These resources were created for the presentation: CREATE DIGITAL PUBLICATIONS FOR MOBILE DEVICES WITH INDESIGN (6 May 2014)  Video Presentation Even though the DPS single edition is no longer available it is possible to create and upload a DPS folio to an iPad or iPhone and then interact with it using the Adobe DPS Viewer app. In the video it is explained the difference between a DPS that is tree structured (like a webpage) and the linear story of a Fixed Layout ePub. If the Articles are created and an InDesign book is used this makes it easy to structure the information so that it can be exported either as a DPS or as an EPUB (via the book flight menu). The assets are made available so that you may adapt and improve the presentation. The photographs are my own and you may use in educational setting. The video was student work, due to file size limit I did not include it so relink to any video (Adobe Premiere Clip is a perfect match for those that are new to video and want to ma... Read More

How To Use Image Trace In Illustrator CC 2014

Posted on Apr 28, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on May 3, 2015

For what seems like forever, Illustrator has had the ability to trace line art and photos and turn them into vector images.  For what also seems like the longest time the results have been, shall we say, inconsistent not to mention painfully slow. With the introduction of the new and improved Image Trace function in Illustrator CS6 a whole world of possibility opened up to users of graphic software. In this “How To” we are going to look at a variety of methods of converting a bitmap to vectors, which is exactly what Image Trace does.

15 Poster Examples that Reflect British Propaganda During World War II

Posted on Apr 17, 2015 by Rafiq Elmansy Last Activity on Apr 17, 2015

Most of us see the “Keep Calm and Carry On” poster on various social networks and even share it, but few of us really know the history behind it. The poster provides an example of the British propaganda during the early days of the second World War. According to Wikipedia, the poster was designed by the Ministry of Information in 1939 and was intended to be distributed in times of disasters. Among the 2.5 million printed copies of the poster, few appeared to the public until they were discovered in 2000.
