Graphic Design Homework for Tuesday October 19, 2010

Posted in Uncategorized on October 15, 2010 by taylormancini

Choose three images created by your designer/artist.  Print and paste them into your sketchbook.  Please write a mini paragraph for each of your images interpreting and analyzing each.

Interpretation: What do you think this piece means to the artist? What does this piece mean to YOU?
Analysis: Dive deeper into the piece… On a bigger scale, what does this piece seem to be about? Is there a message or emotion behind it? Take a guess if you’re not sure. What drew you to this piece and why?

Please email me if you have any questions.

Extra Credit Opportunity: Redesign the GAP Logo

Posted in Uncategorized on October 11, 2010 by taylormancini
As discussed in class, I am giving everyone the opportunity to earn some extra credit.  As you see above, I have the original GAP logo (top) and the new “hip” GAP logo (bottom) shown above.  When GAP came out with their new logo last week, GAP fans were not such fans of the new logo look.  SO, for extra credit, I want you to take some time and design (digitally or hand drawn) a new logo for GAP… Please develop this logo nicely and take time on it.  I won’t give you credit unless you have proven that you’ve really put some effort into this.  This extra credit is due on Wednesday October 13th, 2010.  Good luck and I can’t wait to see what you all come up with!
