I have included colour in one of my mock up logo designs to see what it would look like and even though I do like it it is quite fiddly and im worried about it clashing with colours in my photographs and being distracting. The Black and white image is the direction I would like to go in, this was an idea I had when I did my initial logo designs. I think the tulip needs to be more of a silhouette because it is still too much like a photograph and for my logo needs to become more stylized like a graphic.
After looking at Dingbats I tried out a few sans serif fonts I liked and played out with positioning of the font in relation to the two or four words. The colours I will use will be grey and black to keep it simple also so that if I use my logo next to photographs the colours from my logo and the photograph do not clash. I like how I have put the ‘P’ for Phoebe and the ‘L’ for Lettice joining into one another on the second image down, it is simple but makes it more stylized and not so boring with having just text.
Today I tried out different dingbats from the font website, dafont.com. I just played around with a few shapes I liked, but wont actually use. I do like the grey image with black font over so I am going to try other ideas using this design idea, possibly with Tulip I used in my initial logo designs.
I didnt know whether to begin by looking for a narrative to illustrate with photographs or persue a photoshoot I have had in mind for while and find some appropriate narrative to accompany it. I started by looking into music and picking out songs I like but the problem I had with most of these was that the visual images that the songs conjure up are ones from the official music videos and it is very hard to think differently to how they have already been illustrated. I then looked into various other texts such as:the witches passage from Shakespeares Macbeth , Bunny and Yolanda’s conversation in the movie Pulp Fiction and the opening scene from the movie ‘Thirteen” . I really like all of these texts which I picked out but I found it hard to fit in 15 images around them.
I then decided to do something I am interested in at the moment which is the concept of youth and what it means and this goes really well with a song that I find quite emoitional because it makes me feel pretty depressed, the song is Forever Young by Jay-Z and Mr.Hudson, I am going to use this as my narrative for the 15 images.
My favourite photographer, Jolijn Sniders started the online magazine ILOVEFAKE and it has been the reason to why I have decided to persue my interest in meaning of youth.
Lucy Carr-Ellison – a photographers work that I want to do
Here is my first go using the Dreamweaver software to create a website. It is very basically done index page in a http format, I have created inseted some text and a pitcure. When the document is saed it can be opened in the web browser and viewed as it would be as a website. When creating mywebsite I am going to create it for a 19 ” screen as this is the standard size, I do not want it any bigger because I do not want scrolling on my web page and if it is a larger web page then then when my website is viewed ona standard size screen (19″) it will have scrolling.
This is a screen grab of how to change the reolution and size of an image in photoshop, it is achieved by going into file-save as webdevices. You can see how I have selected jpeg and it has given me four different resolution options, the higher/better the resolution, the bigger the image file is.
The Difference between a Bitmap image and a Vector image is that a Bitmap image has a contineous tone with a larger colour pallet (16million colours) and a vector images is a block colour images with a smalled colour pallet (258colours).
My intial ideas for my logo consists of using a tulip and inserting my name ‘Phoebe-Lettice into it. I want to do this because I ahve a blog called ‘Fluid Tulip” – http://fluidtulip.blogspot.com/ so I would like to incorporate the two brand ideas together for my logo. These are just some basic mock-ups I did quickly from an image off google. I know I will use a sans serif font at the moment I am jsut experimenting which one to use.
