I know some of you may think I change my blog a lot which I really do but As for my blog design I chose this because i feel like the color would pop out to people that visited my blog. Which the color basically is resemble me because i my high school i tried to form a little black and goldish look in it to resemble that. I center aligned some pics but on other i right aligned them so i could put the wording on the left side of it just to switch it up a little bit. I used 3 different types of fonts one is in the Title which is my name, The Post description and title, and the side gadgets. I got everything word in bold lettering so it can stand out. I have a lot of repitition in it because im repeatedly using the center allignment on most of my posts.

In the example below I was basically analyzing this picture to show the basic design principles in the poster. I pick this picture to show because I think i worked harder on this because its very interesting and it has a lot to catch the readers eye like the baby crib, the word FREE, and Happy Valentine's Day. But basically this poster is saying make a baby on valentine's day and you will get a free crib 9 months from now so i thought that was very creative.
Basic Design Principles
In what ways does the piece succeed or fail in arranging elements? Grouping like elements and separating different elements?
This image has poor arrangement and it does not have anything that stands out to the customer or viewer.
How does the ad visually connect (or fail to connect) elements of the piece?
The Alignment of the ad is centered and some is right aligned
How does the repetition of elements in the piece strengthen the composition and create consistency (or fail to do so)?
It repeats the font type and some font sizes. And that effects how the viewer sees the ad.
How does the piece use contrast in its elements to add visual interest?
It uses a black and white effect and it repeats throughout the whole ad.
Typefaces & Fonts
Concord or Conflict?
Does this piece use the same font consistently? Or does it use different fonts that are different, but not different enough?
Yes it uses the same font constiently
How does the piece effectively use contrasts? Is more contrast needed?
(Discuss: Size, Weight, Structure, Form, Direction, Color)
It uses the white background so the black letters could stand out more
Semiotic Components of Communication and Composition
What words, idioms, allusions, anecdotes, stand out as significant meaning-makers? What is signified by each of these signifiers?
FREE, HAPPY VALENTINES DAY
What images, photos, colors, etc., stand out as significant meaning-makers? What is signified by each of these signifiers?
The photo of the baby crib
Rhetorical Components of Communication and Composition
To whom is the communication addressed?
To people that have babies
What is the event, occasion and/or setting for this piece?
Are there cost/benefit, before/after, comparison/contrasts and other appeals to logic?
Yes it appeals to the audience
Does the piece address credibility of the writer, relationship with the audience, etc?
It does not address credibility
How does this piece relate to the audience on an emotional level?
It gets them excited on the great deal
In this example it show you a design analysis which I properly explain everything from the consistency, contrast, alignment and proximity. I learned a lot doing this project because I did not so much could affect how people look at a poster. Like in this picture you see the consistency in the big bold print to stand to the people while its light background which make the contrast dark to light. This picture was very interesting to me as well thats why i chose this example because i feel like i explained it to where you could understand it.
The consistency of this ad is that all of the letters are all in big bold print throughout the ad. As you can that the contrast of this ad is dark to light. Because it has the darker colors in the lighter part of the ad and the lighter letters on the darker part of the ad. The alignment of this is all of the words are lined up together right under eachother. the proximity is when the mitsubushi sign is small in the right corner represting the company and the car.
As for this example this is my Original Photography Composition which i used http://www.online-convert.com/ to convert the size of this image. The reason for this is to make the uploading process go faster and for the picture to not be too big on the page to where it covers most of the blog. There is really a difference in these two pictures but you might now be able to tell.
When we converted the size of the images and made them to a smaller size than the original copy of the image to make it work on this project and not cover the whole page you really cant tell a difference.
In the example below I am explaining the digital print design project which was for to make our own Movie poster which i chose to make an horror movie off the book Blink. I used the color theme of red black white and grey because thats what most horror movies are resembled by. As for the red resembles the blood and and black and grey resembles death. I made everything in like a 3D format and Center aligned all of the wording to make it pop out to the audience as well. I Got the pictures off of wikimedia.
