New Media Certificate Journey
The second course I completed for this certificate is NMIX6111, New Media Design. This course taught me the basics of a few Adobe Products, those being Illustrator, Photoshop, Spark, XD, and a bit of InDesign. Below, you will find the work I completed throughout this course.
New Media Production
Project one consisted of building my own website with the HTML and CSS I knew at that time. It had to be three pages, and showcase CSS the skills we had learned from the class.
Project two consisted of building three separate websites, each being a revised version of the one before by incoroporating bootstrap contents/themes.
The final project gave us free range to create whatver we wanted. I decided to re-create one of my friends blog websites using Wordpress.
New Media Design
This section highlights projects I completed throughout a semester of taking New Media Design. This class challenged me in a multitude of ways,most specifically with learning how to comfortably work with Adobe Software. Each of the projects below were created with the Adobe Software, besides the website which was created in bootstrap.
Photography and Typography Module
For this module, I was prompted with tasks to increase my knowledge of photography and typography. The first two images are a part of the modules first task: capturing images that both clearly represent one of the pillars of photography. The third image was the final project of the module. This assignment tasked me to tie together both the photography and typography skills I have gained, and use them to create an image that reflects a mood I desired to emulate. For my image, I took a picture of my college-homes' living room with our pet cat, with the implication of creating a cozy, snuggly mood.
Tools & Theory of Web Design Module
For the first project, we were assigned clients to make a website and logo for based on the brand they desired. My client wanted a sports blog website, with a logo that relfected a simplistic look similar to that of Nike or Urban Outfitters, while incorporating the color theme of his choice. This whole process was completed in AdobeXD, where I created a website for an Iphone X, Ipad Pro, and MacBook. I also created four logos Illustrator, as well as a final styleguide in XD
UX and UI Module
For this project, along with a partner, I was tasked with creating a brand, 3 personas, a series of promotions, variations of a logo, a style guide, a website, a responsive app in XD, and a presentation explaining each element of what we created. Down below you will see each aspect of the project we created. Click below to view the site we created with a bootstrap theme.
