So, today we present digital roughs created in Illustrator. (If you saw my photographs, you might recognize the caboose break wheel, the depot, and an architecture element.) I tried to expand on my sketches and kept in mind the suggestions in the critique. Now to see which ones to work even more on…got any suggestions? Next is comps and color!
I am a student at Wake Technical College majoring in Advertising and Graphic Design. I will post my Graphic Design III projects as well as any interesting tidbits I find about all things design. I hope this will help to enhance my WordPress experience and develop a dialogue with other designers.
Our first project in Graphic Design III is to create a logo for the town of Selma, NC. I went to Selma with a friend and took pictures to help inspire me and find out more about the town. They have a lot of antique shops, but they really want to increase the presence of businesses to the mix. They hope a new logo will create a new interest in their town. I have to admit we ran into a lot of friendly and informative townspeople. If we were taking a picture, someone would say hi, or tell us about the history of what we were photographing.
I tried to keep it simple, but the detail side of me always tries to push through. Next is creating a few in Illustrator. I really love Adobe’s flexibility and the ability to re-size in Illustrator without losing quality. Some of my details could be lost the smaller the logo is, so Illustrator will give me the flexibility to experiment a redefine.
