Instructions
Instructions: You will create an advertisement for a favorite product you have. It can be food, drink, household item or even for a favorite place you like to visit such as a vacation resort or even just the local park. In this advertisement, you will apply your skills covered. You only need to apply one technique, layer, tool option, etc.; however, you may apply more if you feel you need to in order to create the advertisement to your liking.
Once this is completed, you will complete a two-page paper (minimum of 500-750 words, not including Title Page or Reference Page): 12 font Times New Roman, double spaced paper in APA Style format, using at least two references (all formatting aspects to be in APA including references) to describe the following:
1. Purpose of the advertisement. You must identify a valid purpose as if this advertisement is will be posted for the public.
2. Describe how you organized or customized workspace used and any challenges or purpose identified.
3. Describe the design principles, elements and graphics applied and why it was selected.
4. Describe the tools and/or layer applied and why it was selected.
5. Describe the repairing or retouching applied from and why it was selected.
6. Describe any image adjustment you applied to the image from and why it was selected.
7. Save your file as two different formats and describe how the two images differ.

1. Find two typography posters on postermuseum.com and post and write short reviews
2. Find and review two mobile apps of your choice.
something like this for app review:
Open Table is an app I use frequently to make reservations for restaurants. In terms of type, there is a lot on the home screen including data like price point, stars, and destination. While the typeface all appear similar and unified, the arrangement of the home page seems busy with too much text. Perhaps less text under the restaurant names could make it better.
As a bit of a ui/ux nerd, I really really appreciate apps that have really robustly mapped out how they want to shape out the user experience – and I really really loathe apps that have not. I think mobile products designed while prioritizing the designer’s intentions more than the user’s intentions is incredibly selfish. If a product is designed to satisfy the maker more than its user, it is often the user that suffers, which defeats the point of building a product altogether.
One app that I think does such a great job of keeping the user’s intentions in mind, all the while creating a unique, delightful experience is CAVA’s mobile app. CAVA is a national chain that serves healthy fast-casual food, and has one of the best food delivery/pickup mobile experiences on the market today. I literally don’t even eat from CAVA that often, but because the app is so beautiful I can’t help myself to visit it once in a every while.
3. review experimental books (look for experimental bindings especially)
something like this for the experimental books:
Marshall McLuhan: The Medium is the Message (1964)
Marshall McLuhan’s theory states that each medium, independent from content, has its own intrinsic effect on society and culture and this is what constitutes its message. This message does not lie in the content itself, as is more commonly paid attention to, but rather in the particular expression of its form. Essentially, the form or medium that something takes communicates more and has a greater impact on forming ideas and ways of thinking than any singular theory within it. McLuhan and Fiore (a prolific graphic designer) use an amalgamation of media/forms typically unexpected in the average theoretical book: pages from storybooks, large images covering the entire page, backward images to be read in a mirror, blank pages, historical and modern photography and art, poetry, diagrammatic drawings and graphic, often nonsensical, typography. All of which encourage one to question the idea and effect of mediums and the fixed, linear standards that are expected of them. The form of The Medium is the Massage is its very message, the content within only aids in a fuller understanding. Though this book has a normal binding, it is incredibly experimental and was wildly ahead of its time. Both its form and content play with design in an irreverent and compelling way—similar to many of the books I came across in McNalley Jackson.

Donatello is considered the finest of
the early Italian Renaissance sculptors. He was known for advancing the ideas
of naturalism in the sculpted human figure. Conduct internet research, then
examine and discuss two of his works, such as “St. Mark” and
“David.” Answer all of the following in your
post:
·
What
does the word renaissance mean?
·
What
does humanism mean?
·
How
might the term renaissance apply to these figures?
·
What correlation is
there between the figures based on what you researched about the
artist?
·
What
differences do you see between the figures?
·
What
is the function of each of these objects, and where were/are they found?
·
What do they each
mean?
·
What
techniques did the artists use, and how did they fit into their respective
cultures?
·
What is your personal reaction/response to these
figures, and how (if at all) do they apply to your life and past experiences?

Write a
2 page description, formal analysis, and interpretation of one work of art from
a virtual museum online. Visit the museum virtually. Please visit an art museum, not a children’s
museum for this project. Use the Week 1
How to Write a Critique format. You are writing in an informal manner and are
discussing/describing the object with us. Be sure to review the lesson of
Description, Formal Analyze, and Interpretation learned in Unit 2. It may be helpful to review the Third of May,
1808 short videos in Unit 2 lecture.
Submit
your work in the Museum Assignment section. Optionally: also post your paper to
the Week 5 Forum designed for the papers.

FILM ESSAY PAPER TWO
General Instructions
For each of the two papers, you will be responsible for watching a film, writing a 3 to 5 page essay in which you respond to prompts (see below), and then providing a list of “My Criteria for Quality in Film.”
THE PROCESS:
Make any and all arrangements necessary to view the films and write about them: Some of the films may be available for streaming via Netflix or another online content provider; others may be available for checkout from your local public library, while others may need to be rented. You are better off watching these films on the largest possible screen, and at the highest possible resolution.
Make Time to Complete the Assignment: Each paper requires you to watch a film IN ADDITION to the ones you will be watching for the week’s discussion, so be sure to leave yourself enough time to: watch the film, think, write a first draft, edit and revise.
Turn your assignments in by their respective due dates to the correct assignment folder in LEO.
THE CONTENT:
These assignments are reaction papers, not plot summaries or research papers. Write what you have to say about the film, not what others have said, but know how the film was made The papers will be graded based on:
a) Evidence that you are reading and viewing the course content, comparisons to other relevant films you have seen (in class and as a movie watcher); use of the film vocabulary introduced in class and college-level writing skills (spelling, punctuation, and grammar).
b) Clear presentation of your opinions and reasonable explanations and justifications to support those opinions: In a 100-level course, you would perhaps be asked to write about what you watched on the screen. In a 200-level course, you are being asked to say what you think about what you watched. In this 300-level course, you should explain why you think the way you do about the film, and then justify your opinions with explanations (using references found in the weekly content in the LEO classroom).
Be sure to correctly spell the names listed in the credits of directors, actors, screenwriters, and other people (to avoid “points” being taken off of the final grade for that paper).
These papers are about your observations, insights and evaluations not only what you can learn by reading up on the film or the filmmaker. Do not just repeat what you find online. Think carefully before you write, be creative and apply what you have been learning in this course.
Second Paper Assignment: Film Two
This is essentially the same assignment as Paper One BUT about a film produced between 1970 and 2000.
Part 1: View a feature film made between 1970 – 2000 you have not seen before (or will see later in this class) by a great director or featuring a great actor or actress.
Just as you did in the first paper, comment on the specific film you saw. Pay particular attention to the screenplay, camerawork (cinematography) the editing (montage) and the sound (including music). for this paper, also address special effects. Again, as you did in the first paper, talk about what you like and what you dislike? Why do you like the things you like, and why do you dislike the things you dislike? Is the film a good film, or is it not?
Part 2: Now that you have commented on the specific film you viewed, see if you can draw some general conclusions about the work of the director and one of the main actors or actresses. Be sure to comment on the overall impression you had of the film, including how you see it as an example of the its genre and time period. Remember, this is film review based on your opinions and insights: do not repeat what you have learned by reading up on the film or the filmmaker.
Part 3: Go back to the “My Criteria for Quality in Film” page. Based on your viewing of this week’s film, add four new general conclusions. These statements should be numbered (5) through (8). Be sure to include all of the criteria you created for Paper One.

The Final Assignment – Researching a Contemporary Artist
This is your chance to learn about a contemporary artist
that you find challenging, interesting or otherwise impactful. You will write

Write:
1500 words with links to 5 images. Please footnote
the image with the source. For the essay, 1500 words that follow the general
format of the 5 paragraph essay with an introduction, 3 paragraphs of content,
and a conclusion. Do not title the paragraphs or number them. Please spell
check and proofread your work!!!
In the introduction, tell me why this artist matters, what
are they known for. DO NOT start by telling me when and where they were born. I
don’t care until I would have a reason to. Talk about what makes the artist
important, not a timeline from when they started to now. Why should I care
about this artist?
You must relate the artist to artists discussed in the
class. You must discuss the artist’s work using the relevant concepts you have
learned about in this class with the correct understanding of the terminology
and concepts.
Concepts include, semiotics, mimesis, abstraction,
deconstruction, aura, indeterminancy, abjection, male gaze and identity
construction. You must discuss the work in terms of its semiotic content, as
well as whatever concepts are listed here. Connect the work to society and
contemporary culture when possible.
Remember I am asking for 1500 words. 1300 words cannot be an
A. 1200 words is at best a B- and so forth. 900 words is barely a D. This count
of course does not include your bibliography.
