Assignment is to make a launch kit for a video game, either real or fictional. I choose a Nancy Drew® video game, “Shadow at the Water’s Edge.” The setting of the game is in Japan. Thus, I decided to make the encasing box for the kit look like a Japanese lantern.
I found a pattern for an “exploding box” that I thought could work if I were able to enlarge it and keep it stable. These are photos of my mockup.
Given a logo, we were to create a booklet detailing standards for display and branding for a fictitious company, “Crucible.”
My last draft of my empty book.
Here’s an image of my final cover for my empty book, “Writer’s Block.”
Here are the first digital concept drafts of my empty book.
This assignment is to create a cover for an empty book. The cover must explain why the book is empty.
Here are some sketches of my initial concept.
Here are some more refined digital renderings of my logo designs for the Town of Selma.
Final Logo Submission
I decided to work more on the compass, curving the points to represent movement of a mill wheel or a wheel of an old train.
In the end, I choose one of the most simple of my initial designs. I did shorten the tail of the “S” so that the name, “Selma,” would fit in a more symmetrical manner inside the surrounding circle.
Final Logo Submission
Here are some of my first digital renderings of a possible logo for the Town of Selma.
In North Carolina about 45 minutes east of Raleigh and and hour and a half west of the coast, The Town of Selma, is host to among other things, a myriad of quaint antique shops, an original train depot from the 1800’s that is still in use and an old mill set in a picturesque landscape. The town came to the graphic design department at Wake County Technical School, requesting assistance in respect to updating their town logo. The new logo should reflect the town’s heritage as well as provide a more modern image, that is still appropriate for the character of the town.
Each student of Tyler Dockery’s, GRD.241, Graphic Design III, course is to work their way from drawing up 50 different sketches of possible logo ideas, to a single, refined, poignant logo that will be considered to present to Selma as a choice for their new logo.
My first step in this process, the 50 sketches of Selma logo concepts.
