15-20 photos of objects
Final Due: 3/27 end of class
With this design you’ll create a composition by combining imagery inspired by the 1940s. To do this, you’ll use overlay effects, filters and exposure to create a realistic, hot, starched feel, and will place shapes to produce abstract designs.
In addition, use brushes to replicate clouds, dust and grime, how to add foreground blur to objects to give the impression of depth, and will also see how the Warp tool can manipulate shapes.
We will also talk about color theory, vector shapes and type. What will your message be? What was going on in the 40’s? (War, technology, industrialization, culture, climate) Will this be a US centric design or focus on another countries’ experience? How will color be used?
- 15-20 photos of objects
- 5-10 photos of textures
- Color palette for design
- 3-5 composition sketches
- 24×36″ final composition at 300ppi.
P02: What’s In Your Head?
Due: Feb 27th. end of class.
What goes on inside that noggin’ of yours? Use hand-drawn illustrations to accompany your portrait. This portrait should be about things that interest you, things that run around in your head or things that occupy your mind on a daily basis. Incorporate your drawings to become apart of your head. Be creative! Explore placement, scale and dissection.
Use all of your Photoshop talents that you have learned so far. Final image must be in Black and White.

In Illustrator, we learned how to add type to our box template.
As we move further along in the Project we will import our template into photoshop, add imagery/design.
You saved the illustrator file to your desktops, so you should be able to change it whenever you want.
5 SKETCHES DUE THURSDAY, JAN 18TH!
WE NEED TO START ON THIS NOW. WORK ON TINKERCAD FROM HOME. WE NEED SOME FINISHED MODELS BY FEB 1ST.
Structural Packaging and Design
In this project, we will use the templates in Paul Jackson’s book STRUCTURAL PACKAGING to design boxes for toys that we will 3D Print. So this project will have two elements.
1) A designed package for your toy and
2) the toy itself.
If you have not gone through the tutorials for TINKERCAD, I suggest you do. These tutorials will help you out a great deal. Your designs should be 100% original. We are not interested in creating a toy that already exists.
You should also be thinking of a name for your toy and a design for your box. Will your box be a cage for a terrible monster? Or will it be a cute nest design for something adorable?

- sketches of toy design, posted
- sketches of box design, posted
- final toy(s) for display, posted
