As of now I would say I’m at around 50 hours, which is less than what I expected to be at around mid-term.
I still have the same ideas about “sophisticated” work, which is something that is simple enough to understand and has clean lines and isn’t an eye sore. What is most sophisticated about my weather report would be that all the icons are connected to one another and seem to be very cohesive.
I got to learn more in depth about AfterEffects, having known only some basics about it coming into the semester. Have been able to use my skills in creating icons, and graphics from Graphic Design 1 and knowing placement and the best design when using type came form Type 1. And with the next assignment it will only continue to grow from my previous knowledge.
How this project related to typography, it seemed to be mostly about graphics and AfterEffects so I fail to see how it was more in depth about typographic matters.
I have honestly never thought of my other projects compared to this own. If I was to assign a level of value on a scale from 1 to 10 it would be around a 8. Two other projects that would be relative to this own would be the article booklets and the matchbox project. The article booklets I would value higher because they had so many components placed into one and had to focus on a overall cohesiveness while the matchbox project I would value lower than the Weather Report because it was less components but it all had to fit into the theme based on the surroundings of the movie it was to be placed in to.
I would say 50% is on me, 25% is on the teacher and 25% is on my peers. I feel I could have brought more in the beginning of the semester but I was having some issues and had a hard time focusing and getting motivation.
