Second Week Back
Over break I decided take a few classes this semester part-time, and luckily I was able to get into some good classes at the last minute, which means I’m able to continue working as an STA (this is my second week back).
I spent last week finishing up the Cascade documentation, all of which has now been moved over to the UT site:
Then I got an assignment from a client to update the logo/word mark for the Laboratory for Ethnic and Race Equity (LAESER) website. Their current logo looks like this:
The original design was low resolution and grainy, so the client wanted a new version at a higher resolution and a new font, but with everything else kept the same. I made some mockups in Illustrator yesterday using the fonts she specified and saved it as a viewable PDF, which I sent over for approval:
I traced the triangles with the pen tool and used the eyedropper to get the colors from the original. To get the triangle shapes to be more precise I drew lines over them using the line tool, then Windows > Pathfinder > Divide to slice and delete the excess area, using the original as a guide underneath.
