When I went up to present my slide I was a bit nervous but prepared myself, especially since we were set up to fail. And yes it did happen and most of the critiques I was given I did expect. So If I were able to redo this project over again I would 1. Make sure the colorization of the slide was correct and also make sure there was no digital errors in colorization or pixelization. My slide was originally intended to be orange but then came out to be red but I did not really care since either color would have worked anyways. Also something else that I messed up on was the fact that when choosing a picture to put for my background it came out a little pixelated which was not intended. If I were to redo this I would find a background with more detail so when I were to enlarge it, it won't pixelize. Also another error I made was that I tried to make the Image cut off and ended up doing so for no logical reason, I cut off the logo and it interfered with being able to see the picture.
When I was presenting to the class I realized I presented the wrong slide, I saw this and told the class, but working with what I had I thought I did a good presentation. I learned a lot more then what I thought about graphic designing, like if you have words too close to the edge of your slide it creates tension. Or that you shouldn't put words on red sometimes, because it can be hard to read. In my new slide, I got rid of some words that were unnecessary and enlarged more important ones. I also made the picture on my dad larger to take up more space in the slide. Actually doing your research for this project is important, because seeing others present, you could see who researched and payed attention to the directions. That is why doing your research for this project was important.
After getting critiques from my peers and Ms.Hall I learned that I needed to have everything on myslide constant and centered. So when I was revising my slide I had to Make sure that everything was even and centered. The pictures that I used in my slide were all different sizes so I lined them up by size, from shortest to tallest. With keeping everything consistent, I had to take my shapes in the corners out and replace then with symmetrical ovals. I also had to change my background to have it a constant color. Research is very important. To know what you are doing it is good to do research
Based off of the critique I received on my initial slide, I made a lot of changes.For my first change, I cut down on the textual notes a lot. I shortened the bullet points and got rid of the main point box. I then enlarged the text box so it was easy to read and filled up more of the space. Then I cropped the tri-pod off of the camera and enlarged that as well. I took the filmstrip texture and put it on both sides of the images, then put a black divider between the pictures. I switched the bottom two images because one of them didn’t match the color of the other two so it looked best to put it in the middle. I took the title of the presentation, made it a bit smaller and moved it to the right a little bit so it wasn’t so close to the edge. Through this I’ve learned that consistency is important and that size is an important factor in visual artwork.
During this project i learned about different kinds of slides. You can do different colors, hence the title, moving pictures or videos, and about the different shades you do in different lights. For example, in the daytime or bright light, you should do duller or darker colors. However if you are in darker light, you should do brighter colors.
In my new slide, i didn't put too many words in and i put more visual stuff. I still kept the books but instead i put multiple books. I also changed the background to a very light gray and put a darker border of gray around the pictures. In the slide that you see the title is supposed to be all on one line, but the size of the image messed it up.During this project, research is very important. I say this because without it we wouldn't know what we are doing. If Ms. Hull didn't set us up to fail, we would have failed on a very important project. In the beginning when i did my research, i didn´t know how important it would be. If we didn't do research, we would have done a mess, colors would've been all over the place and we would bleed everything, etc.
