12:45 Kerning Game
In typography kerning is the process of adjusting the individual spacing between letters in a word to achieve a more pleasing appearance than the fonts default spacing.
The first exercise we will be completing this morning is actually a game. Play the following game until you can get an overall average score of 80. You may have to play the game multiple times to achieve this result.
When complete take a screenshot (command+shift+4) of your browser and upload as kerningGame.png to your week_02 folder.
1:00 Movie Quote Poster Research
Today you will be choosing a movie poster for a famous movie like the work of Jerod Gibson. This movie should be famous enough to be recognized by a single object and it’s quotes. We will all agree as a group if over 75% have heard of your movie and would recognize by a single shape, then you can use it. We are looking for artwork to “hang” on the walls and attract artistic students to CAWD.
Here are some examples from a couple years ago:
This movie poster must be made to look old using a grunge texture from deviant art or other online sources and desaturated colors. The color scheme you chose from colourlovers should fit the movie and help viewers to recognize the movie. And don’t forget when using a color palette from colourlovers you can tone down the colors and feel free to add a gray tone from white to black.
The most iconic / powerful quotes should be largest. So if you choose anchorman your largest quotes should be “I’m in a glass case of emotion.“, “You stay classy, San Diego. I’m Ron Burgundy?” and “They’ve done studies, you know. 60% of the time, it works every time.“
1:30 Movie Quote Poster Digital Creation
