Tasteful Typography Project
I used Microsoft Word to accomplish this project as shown below in the screenshot.
I first found a quote that I wanted to do and then looked for an image that would go along with it. I wanted the message to be to inspirational that will help improve anyone who will look at it. My audience was geared towards busy bodies who hardly take time to enjoy life and only dreams of a future day when they can have fun. I then opened the image and placed it into Microsoft Word. From there I made different text boxes to go on the image, as well as design elements. I made sure that I had good contrast between my title and my body copy both in size and font. After I had the design that I liked, I exported the image as a PDF, and saved it as a JPG through Adobe Photoshop. I hope you enjoy the results!
I posted my rough draft on our class Facebook page for my classmates and teacher to critique. Through the critiques I was advised on where to place the text on the image, which was below the title. I also made the font size of my title smaller so I could place the body text beneath it. Throughout all my critiques, I followed the one from my instructor the most, but since I had to move my text the color I originally had chosen to do would no longer work and therefore had to choose a different color to use.
