photo essay

This project was to make up for the classes that I missed while I was in Ireland. The hardest part of this assignment was just trying to figure out what to do with all of the pictures that I took, and wanted to include in the essay. I am also not sure why it displays as two separate pages online, when I designed it as a spread.

Whataburger Digital Profile

Standard

whataburgerWhataburger posts a lot on Twitter, often times several times a day. Their posts are sometimes pictures of their food, but other times they are about things going on in the the states where they have stores. Recently they have been posting a lot about  South by South West, which is taking place in Texas this week.

They also have a website https://shop.whataburger.com/Products#!/gift-cards?gclid=CNWnuuPwjr0CFUVp7AodW3YAtg where they sell merchandise and their delicious ketchup and mustard. The website also has a section that highlights good events and happenings in communities.

They also have a Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/whataburger where they post a lot of the same things that they do on Twitter. Their newest post is of Conan O’Brien at a store in Cleburne, Tx.

All of Whataburger’s pages have the logo as the profile picture and a picture of their food as the banner.  Although it isn’t the same picture of the food throughout their profiles there is a since of continuity.

Like always any problem I really have is figuring out what I want to do. I also could not remember if there was a way to curve text in InDesign, but it turned out to not be a big deal, since i decided that I didn’t want to do that anyways.

Passion

Passion

My color was red, and the emotion that I feel when I think about red is passion. I chose a heart and the couple because those are traditional images of passion. The sheet music is incorporated into the image because I am passionate about music. Over all I didn’t have any problems with this assignment.

Collage

Collage

The theme of my collage is spring. As you can probably tell, I really want the winter to be over. I didn’t have many problems with this assignment, but I have worked with photoshop before. I would like to learn how to make the objects look more like they belong in the picture, not like they were copied and pasted there.

Ad

The original ad had text that was all centered on the page. It also did not have any pictures of the clothing. I added pictures and simplified the information on the ad. I chose the colors yellow, purple, and green because the company, Perlis, is a New Orleans shop that sells everyday clothing with a Mardi Gras twist.
