Dumb Starbucks

Posted by & filed under challenge559.

If you get the name of my post then points for you. If you haven’t then go watch “Nathan For You” right now. You’re Welcome. This challenge was a little bit easier for me than the last probably because it doesn’t have to make much sense. You are literally making up a word just like … Continue reading “Dumb Starbucks”

First Draft

Posted by & filed under Challenge563.

I decided to kinda use the play on words with the apple brand. Used well known puns about the fruit to advertise the electronics. 

I definitely struggled trying to actually create my idea. I started used photoshop to make the apple shadow, but that took some time and a few videos. I need to go back in and actually make the Advertisement appealing. Add a little flair. Plus I definitely need a little more practice with photoshop. I’m glad this is a two week assignment, so I have the chance to work out all the kinks. Especially now that I have an idea, it’s just about actually executing that idea and the extra week will really help with that.

I wanted to do this project over animals because of how much I love them. I wanted to have a different idea for this one and I am proud of my work.

I wanted it to be for fun and something that would make people think.

I Am American

Posted by & filed under Challenge563.

My beginning concept behind this was the idea of being part of a brand. Everyone loves to see themselves in something, whether it be a new outfit or an airplane, and capitalizing on this is pretty darn easy. So, by simply highlighting the ‘am’ in American, we can say “I Am” with anything. I Am […]

Is Tough A Color?

Posted by & filed under Ad Copy & Layout, Challenge551.

Today this blog will consist of two print ad drafts I have created, as well as my process for creating them. I decided to go with the challenge of using color as a way to convey a message. The brand that I chose to make this two-part print campaign for is Caterpillar construction machinery. I […]

Burrrrrito

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

I was inspired to create this picture from the burrito my roommate left in the freezer. I used the snowy background as my first layer, then lassoed the burrito and pasted it into the photo. I then had to resize and reshape the burrito in order to fit it on the bench. I chose the … Continue reading Burrrrrito
