12B Project (Print & Video)

This project was not as hard as I pictured it because I had already done the work previously. I started with looking at my previous layout from 7A I looked at it and decided that I needed to simplify my layout so with the sketch I made modifications in the Shape Map . I was able to add pictures and then go from there, when making the Map I was able to see that I didn’t need as many pictures and didn’t needed to add as much. It is very simple but I felt that it looked nice I was going to add color because I wanted the color pop but in my critiques was told that the way I had it was better. Here is my final Project:

My Message and Audience: This was my testimony that could be shared with anyone who needed that reinforcement in their life that we are not perfect and do make mistakes but that we eventually grow the faith we once had and can return to the flock of sheep and be happy again. This is my story for anyone who had doubted or been lost in their way, because I had been for  12 years, it can happen to anyone. What I wanted people who read this is that our Savior loves us and has worked hard with each and everyone of us, to get us to be our very best and ultimately return to him some day. I hope that my story can help someone who is struggling or bring comfort to someone who feels lost, you are not alone!

I was critiqued by:

Colin Strong Erika, I like your high quality photos. As for adding background color, draw a rectangle that will fit your page and bleed over if you want, then fill that box with a color. Once you do that, send the rectangle to the back (in order of all other layers) and that should do it. I also like your simplicity of how you have written your article compared to photos. I am guessing this article would be for an adult audience?
Kristen Larson Here is your video critique Erika! http://screencast.com/t/a4tgqbq0P5Jg

Elizabeth McDonaldThis is such a beautiful article! I love it so much! Well done. I wouldn’t use a background color on this article. It think it would take away from the simple beauty of it. The only thing I have a suggestion for is to make a little space between paragraphs. Well done! I am super impressed.
I wanted to apply a background color and was given advice by Colin on how to do that but Sister Larson and Elizabeth thought that it looked simple and quite nice not adding background color, so I didn’t. I was told to indent my paragraphs and give them spacing which I did. I tired adding contrast to the title and making the first picture bleed of the page. I also changed the quote font to the same as the title and only used 2 fonts instead. I used all suggestions and made the changes because I knew that the suggestions would make my project look very nice and like a real magazine spread.
