Intro Final Portfolio

27 05 2011

Hello, I am Dawn Greer and this is my final portfolio. This was somewhat difficult for me, because most if the time when I do graphic design I don’t have rubrics. I just go with what I think looks good. Now that I have rubrics I need to follow and I’m getting a grade for it its a little more difficult for me. But, I bared through it. That would probably be the challenge in doing these assignments, following rubrics. In most of these designs i used photoshop and illustrator, I don’t like indesign but, we had to used it a couple times to turn in. Before I came to this  class  I didn’t know how to use any of the software properly i knew how to do the basics, make a circle, a square, and so on.  Now i know how to do much more.

The AIGA is a professional association for design. It advances designing as a professional craft. In the article i read the author of it was basically preparing people that wanted to go into designing for what’s going to happened. He say three main parts. One, “Live in the moment…Ok now you live in this moment.” Two, “You’ll never get anywhere in life going step by step. You have to run people down.” Three, Go out into the world and write about what scares you most, even if its still yourself.”

Pirates of Sillicon Valley

Rating: 4

The movie was basically about how the many different computers and types of computer started and who started them and produced the ideas for the computers. Steve job was a very harsh man that kept apples sales going up throughout the movie, but many people didn’t like his strategy. In my eyes Steve Jobs was somewhat of a hypocrite because he stated that company’s steal from other company’s, but when bill stole his ideas or software he had a problem with it. The people  in this movie had dreams of developing a new computer and selling it for lots of money and  thats what they ended up doing.

The movie was a good movie. It show how everything started and what they had to go through to get things started. Steve jobs was a “donkey” for most of the movie, keeping people up all night to work on his computers and when they had fallen asleep he would shut off their computers and make them start all over. Many people began to hate Steve Jobs. He wasn’t even there for his daughter and wife/girlfriend. Bill gates was like Steve Jobs in that he came up with ideas, but wasn’t as vicious or demanding as Steve Jobs was. Now thinking back at the movie i don’t remember much about the other people. I remember what they looked like, but i dont recall their names. They wanted to fulfill their dream and they did.

He graduated with honors then went to the Royal college in London. At the royal college he felt at home. No rules and regulations that he didn’t agree too. There he also began to befriend other gay men. The summer of 1964 Hockney was invited to teach at the University Of Iowa. In December 1964, Hockney went to London to talk on homosexual imagery in America.  Then Hockney fancied a nineteen year old boy and claims he was everything he wanted in a man. Attractive , young, smart, innocent, and in need of some Hockney. Schlesinger moved in with Hockney. After a while the relationship between the too became a little shaky.
