Design Your Life Week #8

December 29th, 2008

Week #8 of class continued the idea of Emphasis. The sketches for this week made a clear emphasis by having a large photograph. Here are my two examples:


Journaling: We loved the beauty of the two swimming pools at San Simeon.

Pattie Knox: Brad Bonanza No. 03: Digital Fasteners
Mindy Terasawa: Winter Sparkle Glitters
Jesse Edwards: Clean and Serene Solids, By the Sea Alpha
Art Warehouse: Memories Circles No.10

Other: Vinnie Pearce Your Heart paper

The next layout is a two-page spread.


Journaling: Jennifer had a wonderful season playing for her Fall 2008 AYSO team, Red Hot Chili Peppers. They started practicing in early August and continued throughout the season practicing on Tuesday and Thursday after school. Each Saturday we had a game to attend, most often either 8:00 a.m. or 11:00 a.m. Their first game of the season ended in a tie. They went on to win every single games afterwards and ultimately they won the Redwood City championship.

Pattie Knox: Little Enamel Sports Accents
Ali Edwards: Remember This Title And Journal
Michelle Martin: Bergen Ribbons
Jesse Edwards: Clean and Serene Solids
