Here are a few alterations of my triptych I tried, although didn’t feel like they worked as well as my design I had on Monday, so didn’t use.
I liked the unity of the all black and white version, however felt it would be less noticeable and “poppy” compared to what I originally had. And with both of these versions, the “American” color scheme was lost, which I felt added to the meaning behind my feeling/message.
So here is what I had on Monday, and mounted/turned in on Wednesday
As far as project 1b, I started with a sort of mind-map/writing on how I felt during each time period of my “moment”. Here is what I wrote.
I categorized my feelings under before/during/after, and then wrote how I felt.
Then I took the template handed out in class, and tried to sketch out an idea. I kinda went off of what I had on the mood board, connecting 3 kinds of houses (one crappy, one very nice, and my parents house in the center). I then added a roof, and had some words across the other two panels.
From there I continued this idea off of my mood board by using illustrator on the computer. I used cars, similar to what was on my triptych, but this time with three. I used my old car for the middle panel, as well as the back. I then added an under-car shot, and the word “class” in bold, white helvetica on the top.
I kind of like where this idea is going when coming from my mood board, however the third row on my mood board was by far the weakest, so that will have to be redone if it could be my third “cube”. I want it to be family-related in some what, but don’t quite have an idea on how to do that at the moment. I will play around with the idea and bring it to my midterm-meeting on Wednesday.
