It’s time to put your photo-editing to use.
You’re going to create a set senior ad, like you’d find in a yearbook.
What you’ll need:
- 1 Portrait of someone who looks like a high school student
- 1 Portrait of a child that looks like they could be the above student
- 1 Baby portrait
What you’ll be doing:
- Edit the photo, touch it up, make it pop–use adjustment layers and isolation with adjustment layers
- Create a logical design that is eye catching.
- Make up a name for the student, use that as the dominant title
- Create a short (40+ word) message that a parent would write to their child
- Use textures and digital papers to stylize your design.
Things to consider:
- Odd numbers look best
- Utilize a color scheme (use: http://colorschemedesigner.com/csd-3.5/, you’ll need the hex code)
- Download and pair typefaces (serif & san serif)
You’ll produce 3 documents
- 4.25×2.75″ (1/8th page)
- 4.25×5.5″ (1/4th page)
- 8.5×5.5′ (1/2 page)
- They will have a similar look, but you’ll need to pare down the materials to maintain a reasonable, spacious design.
