    Programs/Tools:Adobe IndesignPicture & Information provided by class

    Objectives:Graduating seniors that want business leadership skills and strength when entering the work force.

    Process:I started with 3 separate sketches of my design that sparked ideas for my final. When I sat at the computer, I had different ideas come to mind though.I began with a larger title that set the layout for the rest of the design. Using Adobe InDesign, I created the graduate confer-ence flier.

  • LogosDescription:A colorful and attractive logo reaching out to those seeking safety for their homes.

    Date:June 7, 2015

    Course/Instructor:Comm 130, Section 01Cory Kerr

    Programs/Tools:Adobe Illustrator

    Objectives:To attract consumers looking for a safe alarm system for their fami-lies. Also to effectively design and carry out an illustration.

    Process:I sketched the design multiple times and then perfected it when using illustrator and the design came together. I brought the design together and then used the Focus book in order to choose the color scheme to best fit the design. Once I chose the color, more of the designs came to me. After I received a critique and votes for the fa-vorite, I chose this design to change to a gray scale and switch to a solid color background (red) with all white letters.

  • Event AdDescription:A colorful, full-sized image, advertising a charity climb in the Grand Canyon.

    Programs/Tools:Microsoft Office- Word

    Objectives:I wanted the audience to see a fun event that would also benefit

    charity. The colors bring the image and the event alive.

    Process:I scanned the image when I firsts found it because I automatically felt connected to it. I loved the colors that are present and upbeat vibe in the image. I used Microsoft word to view and edit the image. This is where I also came up with the title and information used for the event. I used a soft yellow that would compliment the rocks in the background of the image, thanks to the eye dropper tool. Programs I used: Microsoft Word, and Epson Scanner.

  • ImagingDescription:

    Date:May 20, 2015

    Course/Instructor:Comm 130, Section 01Cory Kerr

    Programs/Tools:CameraAdobe Photoshop

    Objectives:I wanted to show the viewers the beauty of campus with a strong message that powerful people emerge from BYU-Idaho.

    Process:I first took the image and edited it with Photo shop. I had to use the basic photo editor tools in order to balance the colors just right, and make it all balance with good flow from the architecture. With the rainy day, I think it makes the image look like it was taken on a fall day, which is a more attractive time of year, with many colors. There is repetition within the pillars that make it more attractive to look at. I put the whole design together using photo shop, focusing mostly on the colors used and how I could balance those better.

  • Web PageDescription: Web page advertising an alarm company

    Date:June 27, 2015

    Course/Instructor:Comm 130, section 01Cory Kerr

    Programs/Tools:Adobe IllustratorText Wrangler

    Objectives:My message centers on protection, and having an alarm system that will work for families. The dark background makes the bright colors of the page pop, so the information will catch the eye.

    Process:Using Adobe Illustrator I created the city logo. Saving it then to an HTML program through Text Wrangler I was able to edit the code to my design, also connect it with a CSS code. I used Photo Shop to eye drop the right colors, and give it more design with that. I aligned with coding.
