The goal of the project (Mobile App Design Concept) was to create an app concept for a mobile device in a smart city. The final deliverable is an interactive prototype of a mobile app and a video telling the story and selling the concept. The hustle and bustle of life should not be a reason to neglect our beloved animals. My users are people who love and cherish their dogs and would like to give the same level of comfort as they have to their dogs, in their happy (smart) house – regular house – apartment – condominium. My target group are individuals and families, busy, working overtime often, and travel at least two or more times per year. Their problem is to cover all their pets’ needs, 24/7. This product will eliminate the problem of boarding their pets for the duration of their absence. My app will address this problem by tracking the dog’s needs. The app connects you to the world’s largest network of five IOT’s for your dog. The app is the smart puppy’s’ house best friend and your dog’s.
The goal of the project (Contrast of Proportion & Extension) was to create a proportional color inventory that records the colors found in the source image and their relative proportions. As an additional challenge I had to create a completely different work of art that maintains the pallet and color proportions of the original image reflecting the mood of the original piece. The piece was designed to be 11” x 17” and to be viewed at eye level when the piece is mounted on a wall or show case. My choice of medium was a digital image resolved in Photoshop. My choice of color are complementary colors of red and green I used for an emotional impact piece. The word indignity represents an act that offends against a person’s dignity or self-respect, in this case women. I think the piece arrests the attention of the view long enough for the viewer to consider indignity towards women in society today.
The goal of the publication project is to understand the process of developing and designing a multi-page editorial unit in print and web tablet editions. I learned the fundamental differences between the various editorial sections of a publication and developed a system to create unity while providing areas of flexibility and variation. I created a prototype of a Sola Seattle magazine that articulates the elements needed to develop and design a full publication in both print and digital demonstration. The primary focus of this publication is to inform readers about Seattle’s unique voice. Pages and elements include: Logo, Cover, Cover Graphics; Table of Contents Page, Graphic Elements and Text; Department Page, Graphic Elements and Text; Feature plus Jump spread, Graphic elements and Text. The finished size of the printed publication is 8” w x 10 1⁄2” t cover + single page, and 16” w x 10 1/2” t two-page spread.
