BELLRINGER: So, we are on the first day or so of the Typography Triathalon, and already, students are complaining that it is "too hard"! Bullfeathers! Complete the "Clever Typography Thinking Sheet."

WORK DAY: Students have their choice of one of the two following projects to work on for the few days. I would like to see EVERYONE put together a CHSAA Cover.:

  1. The Standard Illustrator Midterm Project: "GRAPHIC DESIGN PROCESS #3- The Movie Poster Project." This project is will be worth 200 points total and has TONS of required elements. Please make sure that you closely REVIEW the project sheet and include ALL parts of the project (including the Presentation Form at the end of the project.)
  2. If you should wish, you may complete an Vector Illustrated portrait project instead, using the video from the Bellringer from yesterday and the Cartoon Illustration Video Tutorial found on the Q: Drive. Should you decide to work on this project as your Midterm, I will expect highly detailed and professional work to create a DETAILED vector illustration. PLEASE NOTE: If you are working on this project, you must show me progress after two day's worth of work to be able to continue to work on this special offer Midterm.
  3. CHSAA DIRECTORY/ HANDBOOK DESIGN CONTEST
