Shallow, rich and socially successful Cher (Alicia Silverstone) is at the top of her Beverly Hills high school’s pecking scale. Seeing herself as a matchmaker, Cher first coaxes two teachers into dating each other. Emboldened by her success, she decides to give hopelessly klutzy new student Tai (Brittany Murphy) a makeover. When Tai becomes more popular than she is, Cher realizes that her disapproving ex-stepbrother (Paul Rudd) was right about how misguided she was — and falls for him.

Four magicians each answer a mysterious summons to an obscure address with secrets inside. A year later, they are the Four Horsemen, big time stage illusionists who climax their sold out Las Vegas show with a bank apparently robbed for real. This puts agents Dylan Rhodes of the FBI and Alma Dray of Interpol on the case to find out how they did it. However, this mystery proves difficult to solve even with the insights of the professional illusion exposer, Thaddeus Bradley. What follows is a bizarre investigation where nothing is what it seems with illusions, dark secrets and hidden agendas galore as all involved are reminded of a great truth in this puzzle: the closer you look, the less you see.

Visual Narrative, Project 1

Process:

Notes I took during class:

Spot: The pattern that pops somewhere and can be used in any size!

Repeat: can be rotated, mirrored, seamless you can’t know where it begins and where it ends.

Engineered: Used in a specific area in the jumpsuit.

for this project

spot: minimum 15 cm, tiff 300 dpi

engineered: tiff or brush

repeat: 5cm

USE CMYK

spot vector save as ai, delete colors that are not used in the swatches section.

 

Visual Narrative, Project 1

Post 2.

Research. 

I was introduced by the fashion department with the website WGSN. It was really helpful in getting to know the latest trends in fashion and graphics used in fashion.

My group and I were inspired by the Chanel 2019 cruise collection and felt that we wanted to go in the same direction.

these were the outfits I personally liked the most!

These were the first sketches I made after our first meeting.

I met with Law and Leland and they said that I was going on the right direction.

Visual Narrative, Project 1

 

Post 1.

This project was very useful although I got confused till the end because of all of the new information I got and the very different ways of making patterns.

It was very interesting and exciting to learn how to work with fashion because I know that the knowledge I got will be used in my future career.

The only problem I faced was that I didn’t know what exactly my client wanted because she didn’t ask for anything specific which really made my work harder.

 

Print 1, Collateral Objects

I made two collateral objects both are digital.

  1. A menu: I used patterns that we are using in the space in the restaurant. Its on a cutting board to indicate that our food is Fresh and is Cut finely. The menu is mainly lunch, It is given Qatari names to make the audience aware of where they are. Wanted to let the Qatari culture appear more in our restaurant. I used font from the book manual, that is also used in the packaging and Logo. but just made it a little thinner. Screen Shot 2018-12-05 at 10.33.50 AM
  2. The paper bag: it is very simple and plain because the packaging has a lot of pattern in it, it would look distracting if the paper bag was busy too: Bag MockUp G2O.jpg

Print 1, Packaging

1: choose a template

2: make a dieline , then create an offset path 5mm to make a bleed.

3: each step in a different layer then give each step a spot color. -I learned the difference between spot and process. the spot colors are not meant for printing.

4: Clipping path, created to with my rastor images.

5:Make a rasterized images into vectors on photoshop (its easier on id though) on illustrator covert an image into an eps with transparent background.

6:Resize images on photoshop after choosing the size and identifying the way I want to use it.

7:hide glue and fold lines before printing.

8:Make a slug and write the important notes I want to deliver to the print vendor

Print difficulties:

I had to print mine more than 8 times. I had difficulty to allign the front and back page when printing double sided. (because of the vcu printers)

to solve this problem I made the inside of the package a one color to avoid craft problems. If I had more time, I would’ve printed it in a good place but its just a mock up.

My package is scaled 90% from the actual size.

The markup is 80% from original size to be able to fit the slug into the A3 paper.

DESIGN OF THE PACKAGE:

My group and I decided on the font and the design of the package together to make our packages relate to each other.

Law and Leland in class showed us examples of how the packaging of the same brand have to look similar, like a family.

It is always better to add something in the inside of a packaging to make it more visually interesting.

Process:

My first design was horrible, visually. I was using the right patterns from the book manual but it still didn’t work especially when I printed it. The colors didn’t work well together. and the logo felt out of space.

2nd draft:

This was before I met with a group. they suggested a few things that I took into consideration like removing THE.

Change the font of the ingridents.

and adding a color from the inside, preferably yellow.Screen Shot 2018-12-05 at 10.26.52 AM.png

Final outcome:

Print 1, Brand Manual

  1. Clipping Path; from watching a youtube video I learned how to make a clipping path on photoshop. – use pen tool to create a path – save path and name it – from the panel menu, make clipping path. -choose file save as tiff or eps.                             5:56 Watch later                  
  2. RGB to CMYK. ALWAYS FOR PRINT.
  3. Resolution, It is always better to take my own pictures and use them in my work because If I don’t find an image larger than 300 dpi or even if I find one, it is always saved as 75dpi so I will have to change the size on photoshop and it will get a bit pixilated so I will not be able to make it larger. However, if the images will be used as a small scale it is okay to do that.
  4. Slug should include contact info, image file names, cmyk breakdown.
  5. NO PNG or JPEGs for print, use tiffs eps or pdf
  6. when resizing images make the DPI and PPI the same or with a few points only.

Print 1, trip two

Print vendor trip,

In this trip I learned how my files go around in the print vendor, from where I send my files to where I get the final outcome. There are way more steps than I expected.

I learned the importance of putting my contact information for the print vendor to talk to me if there are any errors.

Files always have to be CMYK for print. Die lines are important for the cutting part.

Law explained how we get foil done and how how we make a window.

A cutting board with the die lines I send are made to be inserted on the printer.

The gluing part is handmade and not using a machine

there are machines to cut big stacks of paper at the same time.

here are some of the pictures I took during the trip:
