Color Correction Training
Hue and Saturation
I finally finished the entire animation for the ECO304L course. It consist of 3 different types of currencies folding into different origami shapes. This project was difficult at times to figure out how to mimic how the shape folds, but I really enjoyed creating it. I was able to go beyond my own creativity and do something completely different.
After I completed the animation, I worked on the course graphics for this course. These assets are from the style B template. Since the theme of the animation was different currencies, I wanted to also use that in the course graphic. Therefore, I used an image of different currency bills rolled up. I also used the same blue color in the graphics like in the animation.
This week I have mainly been working on the ECO304L animation. I was instructed to create an animation, possibly a stop motion, that consisted on money origami folding into different shapes. Preferably the professor wanted the origami shapes to be different money currencies.
I created two proofs of concept. One is a stop motion and the other is completely animated.
We decided to go with the second choice because I will be able to include different currencies and the design will match better with the complete course graphics.
What makes an effective icon that is both appealing and readable for the brand it is supposed to represent. This was my task that I have been working on for the past couple of weeks. How to create an effective icon.
I began with some research on the foundations of iconography. Icons are supposed to be compact, simplified symbol that represents an object, action or idea. They should be able to be read at first glance. This is important because icons are everywhere and are used for navigation, warning signs, they trigger actions, and the show status for many things. People need icons to be readable beyond language barrier.
This leads to the most important principles of icon design, clarity, readability, alignment, brevity, consistency, and personality.
For this training, I was instructed to create a course graphic for the style B. Since this design allows you to add in an image, I decided to use one that is based on the black power movement. When I thought of this course I thought it would look good with the accent of orange. Overall, I believe this is a successful course graphic.
