Final Reflection

 From projects 1 and 2 the main components that were carried over into project 3 would have to be "process" and the use of "abstract imagery". I use quotations because the meaning of these words in relation to this project can be seen as several different things. To start, process played a large roll in all three projects, but was fundamentally crucial in project 1. From project 1, as sophomores we gained the knowledge necessary to masterfully iterate our ideas on paper before approaching the problem digitally (Or on the computer). In project 2 we absorbed the basics of juxtaposition and how composition can affect the outcome of an overall graphic image. Both the iterations and compositions of our graphic symbols blossomed from what was a combination of project 1 and 2. Entering the spring semester the major idea i think i will carry with me is to never say your going to do something!!! Do it and see if it works, JUST DO IT see if it work, then decide if it makes the cut or not. Keep and open mind and keep EVERYTHING.


This line juxtaposition was one of many that did not make the cut. At the time I believe it was dropped from the line up because it was lame, and I still think it is lame. Visually it is some what interesting and/or pleasing to look at but in terms of a true juxtaposition, it lacks little similarities that could boost the graphic as a whole. Before project 2 I had very little experience with photography and in turn composition was foreign. After the completion of my book I am now able to better make sense of visual components and the relationship that can take place between the two.

It's not a lame composition, but it did suffer from craft issues (out of focus, etc). Plus, editing is an important part of the design process and some compositions that might work on their own get edited out for numerous other reasons.
