Final Projects

Hello! Today I finished my Advanced Computer Graphics course, although I am not sure if I learned too much in the ways of advanced graphics. Our project was to design a direct mail campaign for a non-profit organization. I choose the Memphremagog Arts Collaborative, and each fall they have an event called Art On Main. The whole main street is closed and artists can set up booths to sell things, and there are concerts through out the day. I decided to do a postcard for the mailer, I had the idea of framing main street and showing it as "art."

This is an actual picture of Newport's Main Street, I used Photoshop to get the painted effect, and I added the lamp post and banner. I used Illustrator to do the backside.

We also had to create some add ons for the campaign. These could be anything to give people as a way of saying thank you for supporting the event. I decided to have a t-shirt, and bumper sticker, I figure that there would be a good amount of exposure for the event with people wearing them, and having the logo on their cars.

We also had to design a black and white newspaper ad, and a website layout for the event. I like the way the newspaper ad came out, I wanted to use the pallet because it was a recognizable graphic image and people would be able to connect it with the event.
My next class doesn't start until April 6, so I have a nice little break. I'll be busy moving everything to the downstairs, and painting and cleaning to make the upstairs rentable. Hopefully I will be able to get some fun things in, and I'll post them here. Ciao!
