Principles of Visual Perception - Proximity (Omani dagger)

Posted on Mar 22, 2014 by Tarek Bahaa El Deen Last Activity on Apr 23, 2014

At any given moment, vast amounts of visual stimuli enter the eye—far more than we can pay attention to. The brain selects and organizes visual information according to a number of visual perceptual principles.ProximityThe law of proximity states that when an individual perceives an assortment of objects they perceive objects that are close to each other as forming a group. In other words ,When the individual parts of a stimulus pattern are close to each other, we tend to group them together as a meaningful ‘whole’—a single unit.Note : It's pure photographyFall 2013/2014

Posted on Mar 18, 2014 by Clint Balsar Last Activity on Mar 18, 2014

If you already calibrate your monitor(s) with an X-Rite product such as the ColorMunki Display, then you may also want to take advantage of the mobile app they have released in partnership with Pantone. It is called ColorTRUE and is said to allow you to calibrate any mobile device for truer color. The app is free, but if you don't already calibrate your monitor(s), then you can get one from X-Rite for about $75.

Creating an Interactive DVD Menu

Posted on Mar 14, 2014 by Tony Bolder Last Activity on Mar 28, 2014

I've always felt that creating assignments for students requires a lot of thought in how the assignment is designed. Students need to become fully engaged with the assignment brief right from the first read. Hence, I now create fully interactive assignment briefs that allow students to continuously engage and update whenever they can. This I think keeps their interest up in the document, and hopefully promotes creativity. This assignment is based on the planning and creation of pre-production documents for an interactive DVD menu. The students have already completed an assignment on the theoretical aspects of digital interactive design. The final assignment will be the actual production of their designed interactive DVD menu.

Marketing Project

Posted on Feb 27, 2014 by Kevin Cagno Last Activity on Feb 27, 2014

The Marketing Project is a project that I give my 11th graders as a review at the beginning of the year. It is a group project used to help them build on their soft skills through using teamwork and time management. The project takes about 6 weeks to complete and ends with a presentation. I give the students the name of a non-profit organization, this year it was Kiva, and they then have to do a marking project that includes, target audience research, logo design, bill board, brochure, website and 30 second commercial. There are due dates every couple of weeks and they are graded on the individual elements and then on the project as a whole. I teach mini-lessons as refreshers throughout the project for the students that require some remediation.
