It is a brand new semester!
Intermediate Computing for Design is for students who submitted their portfolios for the graphic design review in November and were accepted into the program. All of these students took my Intro to Computing class in the previous semesters. The last time I taught Intermediate was 2 years ago and I really enjoyed it, so I am excited to have the opportunity again.
Their first Intermediate project was called “Oh What a Character!” They found an image online of a celebrity, changed it to black and white, placed it in Illustrator, and worked on top of it like a template to create their own caricature of the person. The requirement of the illustration? It had to be completed using a maximum of 7 letters and 2 symbols in black only from one typeface on their computer. Yes, a typeface! They could rotate and resize typeface items as needed.
Below are some designs that were turned in. All have aspects to be improved upon for their portfolio, but overall I was very pleased with their results!
