These are words associated with pattern design.
What is a pattern? A pattern repeats.  The elements of the design repeat, usually shapes, relative size,  groups of objects and colors in any combination.  There are different kinds of patterns:
  • linear - The repeating shapes and colors follow a straight line, sometimes in more than one direction.

  • circular - The pattern is arranged in a concentric pattern
  • radial - Very similar to radial but rays go out from the middle like rays of light from the sun.

  • symmetrical - If the groups of objects are repeated or flipped like a mirror image on the axis (it may be a vertical, horizontal or any set angle) then it is symetrical.
  • Assymetrical - The objects repeat but are not the same size or color. There are variations.  Most patterns in nature are like this.

    The Drink Label
    This project is not only about making an attractive drink label but is also about how we as a society are influenced by advertising and media.

    More about the actual drink label soon.  Start by finding an ad that represent each of the following:

    celebrity status
    super powers
    wealth
    popularity
    humor


    there is one more that we will discuss but not actually research. Hmmmm what could it be?


    -------------------------- A FEW EXAMPLES -----------------------------------------------

    strength and power

    wealth and popularity

    celebrity status

    Humor 'He a lady killer'

    Is this really all about the salad

    Does this make you want a burger?
    So the big question is how are you being persuaded to buy things?

    When you make your drink label think of how you are influencing the consumer.  Who is your Target Market?

    2
    Design a label according to the specs below and then create Ten Variations.
    Below is the layout for your drink label.  It has the following parts:
    • overall dimensions 8.75 x 3.75
    • a .25 inch boarder on left, top and bottom
    • a .5  glue tab to the right
    • a place for the nutrition facts label 1.25

    • The label will have a logo or image branding the drink
    • a drink name
    • and a slogan

    Here is an example to copy:



    Remember, the name of your drink must be in 'The Zone'

      We have discussed being Innovative and creating Variations to find the Best Solution. Here is a poster demonstrating the process of photosynthesis - it is not the best design.




      CONSIDER:
      • The type is poorly placed
      • Contrast and color could be improved
      • A far more attractive and innovative design is possible
      • What size is your poster if it is to be printed out? 
      • Feel free to ook at other designs to get ideas (goog images 'photosynthesis')

      1. Make a photosynthesis poster that is the Best Design.  Do Image Duplicate change it up a bit so that you have one variation.

      STEP ONE
      1.Write: Copy the blue words and then answer the question in red.

      Innovation - The new and better way of working is a great innovation over the old way of doing things.
      To observe the way things are and to then come up with a new better way is to be innovative. 

      My new innovative research method is faster and is also more efficient.  I get more done and do a better job. 

      I will innovate and make it more beautiful and more interesting.   

      Through innovation I discover the best solution to the problem.

      Describe an innovaative solution to getting over a mud puddle if you can't go around.  What can you do to go over the puddle without stepping in it?



      STEP TWO 
      Type Practice ( A variety of innovations)
       Follow type specifications.  Try to match color and design. Start by reseting your character window.
      1. Font arial black.  Place the word innovation in the box.  Use free transform to make it fit.
      2. Font apple chancery,  point size 48, use tracking to make the word Variation the same line length as the red box.
      3. Type the phrase Variety of Ideas, font is Cooper Std, point size 48.  Make it into 3 centered lines of type with leading 36

      4. Type Best Idea, use the font of your choice and make it fill the entire sace from side to side (how would you do that?)
