2 week assignment :: due 9.20.05

  • homework project: “Road Sign Problem” *
    • purpose/objective:
      • Create basic shapes
      • Copy and combine shapes to create new shapes
      • Manipulate shapes using the pathfinder palette
      • Manipulate shapes using OBJECT>PATH options
      • Work with layers palette to rearrange, group, mask, lock, organize and label layers.
      • Work with the creation (pen, shapes, direct select) and transformation (rotate, reflect, scale, free transform, etc) tools and associated palettes (align, pathfinder, and transform)
    • assignment: Immediate, practical communication is the primary function of a road sign. With this in mind, graphically depict the subject indicated for each of the twelve road signs on the back of this assignment sheet. Execute each solution as a finished piece via Illustrator using only black, yellow and white. If the concept dictates, use of an additional color is permitted.This problem is a vehicle for simplicity and personalization. The intent is to inspire personal expression by giving each sign a unique life of its own. The familiar context suggests a traditional idiom, while the nonsensical topics allow for uninhibited design exploration and the opportunity to play; the parameters offer an opportunity to transcend the road functional aspects throu the creation of a personal statement in the name of design exploration.Themes:
      • Indian Village, Ant Farm, Baseball Field, Checkers Area, Fortune Teller, Target Range, Red Light District, Botanical Gardens, Kite Flying Area, Nuclear Power Plant, Earthquake/Fault Line, Paratrooper Landing
    • format: Execute one design for each of the above themes.
      • sketches any size sketch is ok – the ideal is to have one sheet of paper with multiple squares/sketches on it; use black marker and white paper; 8.5” x 11” paper will work fine)
      • all 12 designs on one sheet (8.5” x 11” paper)
      • large prints of each design (8.5” x 11” paper, printed from Illustrator)
    • *assignment adapted from Visual Literacy: A Conceptual Approach to Graphic Problem Solving by Judith Wilde, Richard Wilde and Kathy Kelly’s ART 3395 Graphic Design Software Course Spring 2004:
