1.Description: Create a montage in Photoshop that can be used for a Christian organization.
2. Process (Programs, Tools, Skills, FOCUS principles): I used Photoshop to combine and edit all my images. I watched several tutorials to teach my how to use different effects and tools in Photoshop. I knew that I wanted some hierarchy in my text so I picked one text and made two important words larger and bolder. It also worked to align most of the text on the left and the right.
3. Critique Report: Sister Kunz and Sierra both suggested that I move the text up to the sky area. My instructor also said to try enlarging the book image and blending it even more. Sydney said a typewriter font would look great, since I added the typewriter image. I did that, and shrunk the text like she and Sister Kunz directed and it made that corner of the piece have some good breathing room.
I helped Natalie with some text placement and Sierra with some places that might need more blending.
4. Message: God’s story is our story. His main purpose is our immortality and eternal life.
5. Audience: Instructor, classmates, those who could be uplifted by this spiritual message.
6. Top Thing Learned: I learned how to do a lot of new effect in Photoshop. I learned how to find the text tools to change kearning and paragraph layout.
7. Color scheme and color names: Complementary–Blue and Orange
8. Title Font Name & Category: Neue Haas Grotesk Heavy, sans serif
