Give Us Time to Work it Out

Posted by & filed under Challenge563.

So I think things are going a little better this second time around. Might need a little more work, but I’m feeling alright about the project so far. With the play on word challenge I chose Apple, and I thought that really worked out with their recent release of the iPhone 7. I kinda just went with apple/nature puns. I kinda designed them around the same theme but not to necessarily go together. The puns I went with would probably contradict each other a little if they were printed together. Which I’m considering changing the puns so that they work together a bit better, but I wanted a little feedback first. 

I did look at some apple print ad’s for inspiration, and I noticed they mostly went for a very minimal look to their advertisements. I tried to kinda stay to that simple look, while incorporating the play on words.

Alright, so I made some small changes to the first image. Gave it a little more glitter if you will. Not a lot, just the right amount. I also changed the font because it was pointed out to me that it wasn’t very readable. Overall, I’m making my way through these assignments, but I’m not … Continue reading Take Two

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 chose to do the play on words challenge mainly because I am a big lover of puns, I appreciate the cheesiness and the eye rolls that come with a perfectly placed pun. I was struggling to find a pun that was not only classic but could also represent a product of some kind, until I … [Read more…]

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 […]

For this weeks Print Challenge Bank, I chose the play on words assignment. I chose this because I felt it was easier to focus on the content of the ad and not the design itself. The other ones such as the fold and make the brand an adjective made me feel as if I would … More Playing With Your Food
