History of Design Training
This week I finished up my graphic for the History of Design training.
For the paper background, I drew a rectangle, filled it with a beige color, added a grainy texture with Effect -> Texture -> Grain, and then blurred it with Effect -> Blur -> Smart Blur…
I added the hat. I made the spotlight by using two trapezoids filled black and at 50% opacity. Maddy showed me how to make the mustache smoother by going to Object > Path > Simplify.
Rule of Thirds
Maddy suggested I practice the Rule of Thirds.
Loosely inspired by The Twilight Zone, “The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street”
Set Up Local Environment
There isn’t really an intermediate KB training, so I explored on my own. While working for the Blanton, I didn’t really get many chances to really explore WordPress because I was mostly just migrating content.
I edited the stylesheet to change the colors and added a blurry glass effect to the page. I took a bit of time to find the styles that I needed to change since the stylesheet had 6000+ lines.
