    Do Not just collect posters, just becasue they are posters. Only collect the ones that have a specific style you will want your poster to be.

  • Place several examples of posters in your DropBox folder called "Project 1-Research." (These examples should show the art director the style, look or direction you are trying to accomplish.)

You will eventually have to do some of these, but skim through them for now to get an idea of what is possible.

 

 

For Monday, Sept. 10

Rock/Gig Poster sketches: In sketchbook or tracing paper make thumbnail sketches for your rock posters
Create a total of 40 thumbnail sketches
by hand.
(all sketches must be Xeroxed copies.)

Sketches should be the same orientation as the poster size. (So indicate what the poster size maybe.) You can do these at any size as long as they are detailed. Remember the size is 11 x 17, so make the sketches proportional.

(Note: The smaller sizes of sketches work better; easier to create.That is why they call them, Thumbnail Sketches. (Small sketches- clear and detailed).

You can use pencil to make the sketches, but they must be enhanced with a black felt-tip pen or darken when you Xerox them.

I should be able to look at the sketches and understand what they are without you explaining.

DETAIL DETAIL DETAIL.You can print out images from the computer as reference or use tracing paper and trace objects, but you must produce thumbnail sketches by hand.

  • refer to your research and look at the posters you have collected.
  • Collected images and resources to use for tracing.
  • Remember the questions you asked from the last homework assignment.
  • Sketch out your ideas for the poster.

You must come to class with a Xeroxed copy of your sketches. They should be able to see from 5 feet away, so make sure the lines are strong and the details are clear.

 

Please note: Next week you will have homework from the Illustrator Book.
So make sure you have the book by next Wed.

Homework:

    If professor does not get to speak to you on Wed. in class, please email professor at -(roadworkdesign@sbcglobal.net)

    10 different names of your record label.

      • Have all 10, but tell me which 4 are your favorites.

    These names should be descriptive.

    • A descriptive name uses words that describe an object. It is harder to come up with a logo if the name is obscure.

    • So think of image based words. The name you choose should be followed by one of the these words:
      • Records
      • Recordings
      • Productions
      • Music
      • Entertainment
      • or Media

Sketches to be handed into professor.
All sketches must be detail oriented and must be clear enough that they can be read without your explanation.

Lecture/ Studio time

Start to layout rough ideas in photoshop:

    1. Starting a new blank canvas
      (Canvas size: 11 x 17 -- 200ppi -- RGB)
      Note: This should really be at 266 ppi, but since you are printing out to a desktop laser or inkjet printer, 200 ppi is fine

    2. open sketch and copy and paste into new canvas

    3. Start laying out a rough (very rough) layout of all the elements you need for your posters.

    Do not spend a lot of time perfecting the images. But do position the images and size everything according to your sketches.

Studio time

Professor will walk around to each student to look at your sketches.

At this point, you will be starting your new canvas for your poster. Or work on your homework.

But this is the time to talk to professor about your concerns, issues, suggestions, etc.

Look at these videos


Homework:

1. Start rough layouts:

Start with the canvas size listed above and bring your images in.
You should have more than one rough layout as the professor has chosen more than one of your sketches.

2. Practice #8: For this practice you will need to do some technical research.

As you see below, there are several tutorials online. You do not need to go through each one of these just yet, but you should glance at them first before you conduct your homework.

Find 2 tricks or tips about Photoshop (Somewhere online) it should relate to compositing or retouching.
It should relate to something you are trying to accomplish in your movie poster layout.

Most people will choose the first link in a google search.
So go through a couple of links to find the one that works best for you.
Make sure it is not any of the ones listed below.

Find a site that shows the steps to:

  • 1) Something new, you did not know about, but you learned.
  • 2) Something cool and interesting.

    These can be videos or step by steps.

Send your links to those sites to professor.

Demo-Prepping file for Movie Posters Due on Wed. Nov. 14th. (The printed version will be due later)

Prepping your file for printing:
(see below for steps)
Generate a .pdf
(try doing the postscript option)
    • In Indesign, place the photoshop file.
      (File menu > place) (See this link)

    • Layout your text and logo in indesign.

    • Save your file.

    • Package the file.
      (make sure once you package your file you keep the backup version of your layered photoshop file.)
      (see these steps for packaging a file from InDesign)

    • Close the indesign file you are working on

    • In the packaged folder, in the links folder is your .psd file.

    • Open the file up in Photoshop and merge all the layers together.

    • Convert to CMYK (change in the the image menu > mode > CMYK)

    • Save as another name ***So this way you have a backup of the layers. ***

    • Go back to Indesign and open the InDesign file in your new packaged folder. (Make sure it is the indesign file that the packaged option generated and not the first indesign file you created.)

    • Update link.
      (While in InDesign, go to the links panel - find this under the windows menu. You will see a little icon for updating the links. If you changed the name you will need to relink the .psd file to the InDesign file.

    • Export as a high resolution PDF. (Click here to see the steps.)
      Make sure your have crop marks and a bleed.

    • Export another version as a medium quality resolution PDF. But do not put a bleed or a crop marks.

    • Insert the medium quality pdf in your DropBox

     

Another way to generate a PDF.

Using the Print to Postscript option.

Once you print to a postscript file, the file is high res and has all the quality and elements in the layout.

By using Acrobate distiller, you generate a pdf from the postscript file, thus keeping the high quality resolution, but you file size is smaller.
