Here is my project in Word

4aWord

Process: I wanted to do something that spoke to one of the things that means a great deal to me, music. My idea was to be a reminder that music can be such a powerful force in our lives. My audience was my classmates, and ultimately anyone in this universe that has possibly forgotten their love of music. I imported my image into Word, arranged and resized it to fit the size criteria. I decided to keep the title in its own box, and then have the text separate. I ended needing to use some kerning to make the title look more appealing to the eye. After I completed work on the project I exported it as a PDF. I then saved it as a JPEG using the online converter.

 

Critique Report: I ended up having to scrap my original project because the image was already cropped down. Not one to let that beat me, I decided to use some of the design elements that people in the class suggested, as well as use the critique Sister Esplin gave me during her web demo.

  1. I found this graphic very appealing. I am from the days of vinyl records. So that graphic caught my attention right away. The title really stands out in the font you chose. The quote from Springsteen is awesome.

  2. Excellent job Chris! I especially enjoyed the texture around your title. It is an eyecatching focal point. I’m also in agreement that music plays a vital role in our lives. The quote you featured from Bruce Springsteen, brought wonderful memories of the musics that has touched my life. Well done.
