  • 1.Digital Graphics Emily Monsey

2. Raster Graphics Raster graphics are bitmaps which are made up of millions of tiny pixels. These pixels record the colour information of that area of the image. When resizing the image, this can cause distortion of the pixels. For example, when enlarging the image the image becomes blurred and of a lower quality. This is because bitmap images have a fixed resolution. 3. Vector Graphics Vector graphics are made up of vectors (or paths/strokes). Vectors have start and end points which have curves, points and angles between them. The path can become a line, square, curve or triangle shape. Vectors have no loss in definition which means they can be enlarged or minimised without becoming pixelated which makes this a great graphic to use for companies. For example, it can be small to fit on a business card or enlarged for a billboard and not loose definition. 4. JPEG Stands For Joint photographic experts group Used For Photographs and web formats. For example, photographs on Facebook are saved as a JPEG. Advantage A JPEG is a small sized format which means it can be used on most technology e.g phones, computers etc. This can be an advantage due to the fact that images can be saved on to any technology. Disadvantage It looses quality when its been edited multiple times due to the compression and recompression each time its edited. For example, if the image is opened and closed many times the image looses quality and wont be as sharp as it was originally. 5. TIFF Stands For Tagged Image file format Used For Desktop publishing and popular with graphic designers. Advantage It allows you to save multiple documents on to a single TIFF file. It also doesnt loose quality and stays sharp and of a high quality after being compressed as a TIFF file has the option of Lossless compression. Disadvantage Due to being very high quality this causes the file to be very big and takes up a lot of storage. 6. PSD Stands For Photoshop Document Used For Image manipulation and used on images for the front cover of magazines. Advantage It can save multiple layers and page formatting information, it also supports transparency. It doesnt use compression meaning the image doesnt loose quality and stays sharp. Disadvantage As the file is a Photoshop document, the image can only be opened in Photoshop. For example, if a PSD image is sent to somebody who doesnt have Photoshop they will be unable to view the image. 7. AI Stands For Adobe illustrator art Used For Used to create logos and graphics to represent companies Advantage It can be scaled big and small as vectors have no loss in definition. Also unlike some other file types when the image is magnified it doesnt become blurry or pixelated. Disadvantage It is a limited software meaning that you would have to have adobe illustrator to open any image from it. So if the image is sent to anyone who doesnt have adobe illustrator they would be unable to open the image. 8. 3DS Stands For 3D Studio Used For 3D Studio is used for modelling animation and rendering. It is also used to create 3D characters, environments, animations and gaming. Advantage 3D Studio is a flexible programme which allows you to save files on different software programmes and is a powerful software to have. Disadvantage 3D Studio takes up a lot of room as its a huge file and it can be found really difficult to use and takes a lot of practise to master the programme. 9. Rotoscope 10. Shape task 11.

Final idea- use a quote to show an iconic image: Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world Being normal is boring! I dont mind living in a mans world, as long as I get Imperfection is beauty, Madness is genius, and its better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring A wise girl kisses but doesnt love, listens but doesnt believe, and leaves before she is left We should all start to live Millions of people live their entire lives without finding themselve s. But it is 17. Proposal Dimensions 2400 by 3200 pixels Content The t-shirt I am going to design is going to have an image of Marilyn Monroe created out of her most famous quotes. I am going to ensure that the image I use is iconic so it can easily be recognised as Marilyn. The quotes are going to be done in a girly/feminine font to match her character and are going to out line her face and shade in her key features. I will use my chosen image of her and then write the quotes in different layers on Photoshop, I will then have to warp each layer of writing to shape her face. Export Format PNG Advantages; Compatible with red bubble, can save transparency & lowered opacity. Disadvantages; larger file size than similar formats such as JPEG. 18. Proposal Deadline 1st October Monday Tuesday Wednesday MONDAY-Planning my t-shirt making sure its ready for next day TUESDAY-Starting to design my idea on Photoshop, get enough done so I can finish it for Wednesday. WEDNESDAY-To finish off my final idea for my t-shirt Schedule Audience The target audience for my product is going to be mainly aimed at females as it is going to include lots of quotes, some including quotes that girls would understand more, but could be classed as unisex. The age range will probably start from 16+ as there isn't any thing that would classify it to a particular age but people of a younger age may not know who Marilyn Monroe is and also might not access the site redbubble. 19. Digital Flat plan Imperfection is beauty, Madness is genius, And its better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring Marilyn Monroes face will be made up of her own quotes. I will use several different fonts to add contrast and to help shape her facial features. I will use this iconic image so that it will be easily recognised as Marilyn Monroe. 20. Peer Evaluation What are the strengths of the final image? They both have a lot of detail within the images and used different skills in their final image. It has had a lot of thought put into them and really good final design. I like the look of both the designs and they are both excellent. I like how the quotes have been warped around the face of Marilyn Monroe picture as it is something different and has worked really well. What could be developed if the image was repeated? Try to use different skills, e.g. rotoscoping on the Marilyn Monroe design to present the image in a different way but overall both really good designs. 21. Peer Evaluation What are the strengths of the final image? The Marilyn Monroe image is an excellent piece of work, as the quotes fit perfectly to the structure of the facial features, I like how the quotes are all her own. This has worked really well and used a great skill to do. I like the other image with the Disney quotes as Disney is a personal favourite and can go to a wider target audience as it has different characters and quotes and a lot of fonts are used. What could be developed if the image was repeated? Try not to let the words over lap as it makes it difficult to read Use colour or different skills to make it more brightly interesting The other image, take more time with the characters as they are simple 22. Peer Evaluation What are the strengths of the final image? Marilyn monroe I really like this image and how the face is made out of quotes. Its really got the actual shape of her face and you can tell who it is which I think is really good. The font for the quotes works really well. What could be developed if the image was repeated? I really like the image how it is so I wouldnt change anything 23. T-shirt evaluation 24. Does your final product reflect your original intentions? All my planning has included Marilyn Monroe as I knew I wanted to use her face on my design as I wanted to use a celebrity and felt that her photos were the most iconic and could easily be recognised. Also from doing research on redbubble.com I had seen that many of the designs included celebrities, this showed interest in this area so I thought it may be a good idea to include a celebrity in my design. I also knew from the research that people had used lots of different skills and tools to create their design and my favourite way of creating someone's face was how people had used words to create their face shape and features. My digital flat plan didnt reflect my design exactly as I didnt have the time to create what I wanted my final design to look like, therefore I simply used an image of Marilyn Monroe from the internet and put one of her quotes of the top of the image. I used the same image for the digital flat plan as I did for my final design and also used that quote along with many others I had found. 25. Imperfection is beauty, Madness is genius, And its better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring Digital Flat plan Final design 26. Is your product suitable for your audience? My target audience was people of 16 years and upwards, mainly based at females but would be classed as unisex. I think that my product is definitely suitable for the chosen audience as I stuck to my initial idea and made sure that It fit in with the target audience I had selected. I had originally said in my proposal that the design was going to be unisex but as I started to create my design I realised that many of the quotes that I was going to be using were aimed at females and that they were the target audience of her quotes. Therefore the design may be classed as more of a female based product. I had also said in my proposal that I wanted my design to be for 16 year olds and upwards as I felt that from this age you understand who Marilyn Monroe is and also are more likely to access the site at this age. I feel that I have stuck to this age range as I didnt include any quotes that a person of this age wouldnt understand and made sure I used a suitable image. Aud
