Lets talk about our last and final assignment, Assignment #4 will be the last assignment for the semester, however, we will be submitting a final portfolio of our completed work on the day of our final exam meeting time. (I will share a demonstration on how to do this next week in our zoom class).
Assignment #4 – Final Project
Students will complete this assignment using the color palette of their choice.
Specifications: Assignment #4 is our final project. Students will create a brief proposal to share in class next week that will assert their final project. Your final project proposal is a statement of what you intend to do and how it will help expand your design practice and skills. This is a an open choice project.
Examples: (but not limited to)
*Create your own digital or print ready ZINE – (should be at least 8 pages)
*Vector Art Digital Illustration – (this could focus on character creation, landscape studies, portraits or product mock ups.)
*Digital Illustration exploring a specific theme or narrative to help tell a story
*Image manipulation, degeneration & recreation – experimental series of 3-4 image manipulations that translate as digital art.
Software: students can work with familiar design software that can produce the final design / digital art works.
Size: The size of the completed digital artworks are open. Students can decide but I suggest considering that you work consistently in scale and relationship to your regular workflow.
Submission or work in Process – Students will present their work in “sketch / concept progress” in our next class.
**Assignment Submissions Reminder – When you complete each assignment, please e-mail me to let me know – always add both your production files (.psd or .Ai) as well as a .JPG version of the assignment into your folder in our shared Google Drive (the link is located on our Canvas page in the NYIT portal)
