Start: November 9th, 2023
Completed by: December 18, 2023
Description: The COLA/Psych Dept/Marla are looking to update their design for the psychology course so they requested a custom course graphics. The professor was looking for graphics that accentuated the course theme of nature, mind-body approaches, and self-care. They preferred dark green for the nature theme and leafier graphics, and requested PPT slides: Course Title slide, Lecture Segment slide, iPad Overlay, and additional PPT slides, Canvas Graphics: Dashboard, Homepage. Banner, and Buttons, and Studio: Custom Wall Monitor.
I started out by searching images about nature, more specifically leaves and then drew a couple of designs:
After talking with De’sha, we went with an assortment of leaves to keep it simple and clean and not draw too much attention away from the professor. Once the graphics were decided, I started designing the canvas graphics and with Leilani’s input, the color scheme changed from a dark green letters with light green background, to white letters and darker background.
Once the color scheme was decided, I worked on the rest of the assets.
However, given the live stream nature of the course, the green shade of the assets appeared different in the studio. After altering the green color to contain more yellow-green hue, since the studio monitor had a slight blue tint, Leilani and I went into the studio and took a couple of studio shots to check the color.
After considering how the color was showed in the studio, I chose the color background with a more yellow-green hue. I also rearranged the leaves somewhat to maintain the balance around the professor when they sit right in front of the monitor wall. Once I presented my progress, I left for break and Leilani took over to finish the project.
