I was assigned to make a 1920 x 1080 digital display for Prof. Ann Johns’ ARH 301 Intro to Visual Arts fall class. I was given this previous digital display for a black studies class as an example of the type of design I should model, and also the images, text (using Garamond), and colors (black and blue–#344c75) Prof. Johns requested I use.
I left room for the UT and/or department logo/s to be added, as in the black studies display. I will rearrange the images a bit more after that so there won’t be any gaping holes like there are now. The display, once finished, will be on a screen behind Prof. Johns during her recorded lectures
Other things I’ve been working on. I made some amendments to my “Waitress 2” character design, adding some strands of hair so that the bangs on the front view would look more realistic. I’m getting the hang of the Animate tools, which work differently than they do in Photoshop. Instead of using many layers like I normally would, in Animate you have the option to change the settings on your pen/brush to paint on top of, inside, behind, etc, existing lines. I also finished my practice illustration for Kathy (below).
Other ongoing projects I’m working on: Cascade documentation. A few of us were tasked with updating the guides on how to use Cascade which will be extremely useful for faculty who need to manage pages within their department sites. When faculty come to us to learn about Cascade, we can point to this as a resource and make the process much easier for everyone involved. We’re planning to have this completed by the end of the month. Also, for TBH I’ve been organizing .mp4 files that have been converted from .mov. Once they’ve all been moved to their correct folder I’ll check them to make sure that they play.
