Hello, my name is David and I like to explore the world of graphic design in my spare time.
In this project I will show some of the results of the exercises.
Day 7 - Line Art
I made a space themed poster with the tips from this lesson. My main subject is the space shuttle with soms spacy elements as supports. The glimp of stars is a pattern used as fill.
Day 15 - Vector Portrait
Drawing portraits was never my biggest strength. I'm not going to reveal who I have drawn, if you can guess it, I am on the right track.
That's it for now, I hope to add some designs soon.
Combination of day 3 and 17: Gradient map with halftone effect
Tried to experiment with a combination of the two techniques.
Day 30 - Torn Paper
I didn't find a matching coffee, yawning, morning blues picture. But I found another picture matching the torn paper effect. The typeface is inspired by some old ads.
For the assignment I first thought of a interesting festival concept and came up with the Anonymous Festival. A fictive event that is secret and mysterious. The gradient map is something I don't usually integrate in my work, so that was the first thing I tried to visualize. I decided to use a close-up face with a gradient map. First I used only 2 colours, but after some alternations decided that 4 colours suited the artwork better. Then I added a white bar, like the black bars sometimes used on TV to mask the identity of a person.
I like the overall look of the result, but I am not really pleased with the pairing of the typefaces. If it was up to me, I only used one typeface, but that wasn't the assignment. Thanks for the interesting course and see you next month.
