Description:

This is a brochure for a fictitious organization to encourage people to get out and explore
local places. This particular brochure is for a group of Easter Oregon antique shops.

Date:

July 10, 2016

Course/Instructor:

COMM 130 Section 01 - Ben Pingel

Programs/Tools:

Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop

Objectives:

Set up and align a two-sided, folded document.


Create an original, new logo and use it in a brochure.
Incorporate quality images. Incorporate at least four quality images, not including the logo.
One should be clipped in Photoshop and text-wrapped in InDesign so the text follows the
cutout shape of the image.
Write at least 250 words of original copy in at least three paragraphs, headers, and subheaders.
Trim for a full bleed and print in duplex (two-sided) color.

Process:

I used InDesign for the layout of the brochure and to put it together. I used Illustrator to
create the Oregon logo for the fictitious organization. I also created the map with Illustrator
and used the new logo as destinations on the map. I used Photoshop to cut out the heart.
I went with a split complementary color scheme. I used teal and red for the text and the
background was a light orange.

Course/Instructor:

COMM 130 Section 01 - Ben Pingel

Programs/Tools:
Adobe Photoshop

Objectives:

Use the FOCUS design process with strong focal point and flow
Unify a layout with a consistent theme and dominant spiritual message
Learn to blend two or more images together gradually, using masks
Demonstrate more advanced Photoshop skills for layout with multiple elements
Use a mask to apply a filter to one part of the image

Process:

I used Photoshop to take three different images and make one original image. I used a
mask and the brush tool to create the universe being shaped into a path. I also used an image as a filter on the overall image, changing the opacity and masking out some parts of it
to blend well with the image and give it a different feel. I used an image with a low opacity
to create a filter and did an orange color overlay to warm up the forest seen.

Echo Station will be hosting a celebration of
the Fall season on Main Street in Echo to
support local businesses. A $7 wristband

in the local shops and giveaways!

Process:

I used Microsoft Word for the entire project. I used alignment, repetition, and typography to
make it aesthetically pleasing. I used a complementary color scheme with Manhattan and
Breaker Bay (according to some obscure color namer website.) Essentially its a light pink
and a baby blue. I used the blue for the background of the body copy and the chevrons
while I used the pink to accentuate the title.

Course/Instructor:

COMM 130 Section 01 - Ben Pingel

Programs/Tools:
Adobe Illustrator

Objectives:

Create a new logo to fit a company or personal image.


Create three completely different, original logos to fit a company or personal image that will
appeal to the audience. Do not imitate existing logos or use previous designs.
Market research: gather opinions from at least ten people about which logo appeals most
to them.
Use only the Illustrator tools to create and draw your logos.
Refine one logo with variations for color

Process:

I used only Adobe Illustrator. All illustrations are original. I started with three different ideas
and then chose one to refine. I used the pen and width tool to create the cupcake and really
enjoyed making this logo. I used a pink, an orange, a teal and a light tan to convey the
message of the inside of a cake and frostings.

Description:

This is a basic web page to demonstrate knowledge in HTML5 and CSS3 to showcase a
logo I created for a previous project.

Programs/Tools:
Adobe Brackets

Objectives:

Size and optimize an original logo as a .png for a web page so the long side is 300 500
pixels.
Write content to describe the process of creating your logo and how it appeals to a target
audience.
Acquire a working knowledge of HTML.
Acquire a working knowledge of CSS.
Identify hex colors to match logo, using Photoshop color picker.

Process:

I used IDs for the headings. I changed the opacity of the boxes that the information is in. I
changed the link appearance from the basic blue to colors that would be more cohesive in
my design. It is not seen in the web page screen shot but I changed the elements to shrink or
grow with the size of the screen. I also added the two fonts with @font-faces.

Course/Instructor:

COMM 130 Section 01 - Ben Pingel

Programs/Tools:
Adobe Photoshop

Objectives:

Learn basic photography skills.


Choose a color scheme, take a photo to match those colors, then incorporate the colors into
the layout.
Adjust image levels, saturation, color balance, sharpen tool on separate layers for NDE.
Size and crop the image, then place on an 8.511 page layout.
Use layers to design text, and repeating graphic elements in Photoshop.

Process:

I used Photoshop for this project. I used a small Canon camera to take the photo. I specifically focused on the message and contrast portions of the FOCUS principles through
typography and a specific color scheme. I chose a complementary color scheme with teal
and orange. The orange was to blend with the rust in the actual image and I liked the blue
for the word water and for the way it stands out.

As rust corrupts iron, so


does envy corrupt Man.

Description:

This is a flier for a fictitious event where I demonstrated basic design principles and Adobe
InDesign knowledge.

Date:

May 8, 2016

Course/Instructor:

COMM 130 Section 01 - Ben Pingel

Programs/Tools:
Adobe InDesign

Objectives:

Apply the design principles and use appropriate typography.


Incorporate basic InDesign skills to improve basic flier layout.

Process:

I used Adobe InDesign to create this flier. I went through the five step process by identifying
my audience, sketching my ideas, organizing the layout into a readable and eye pleasing
design, I contrasted the colors and objects to make it interesting. Using a distinct line, two
fonts and the same color scheme in the image, blocks and logo I unified the design and
then simplified it to be easily read and understood by the target audience.
