For my Graphic module, I had a variety of tasks to complete based on Rio 2016 Summer Olympics. The first task I had to complete was designing three mascots. Having done a lot of research on past Olympic Game mascots and Rio de Janeiro, I came up with the following characters; Fernando the Frog, Manuel the Macaw and Flavia the Flamingo. I firstly drew them out by hand then created them using Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop.
Another task was to create an Olympic magazine cover and three internal pages. I wanted to create a professional looking magazine using a minimalistic approach as from researching over Olympic magazines, I found this to be a popular choice of design. These were also created using Illustrator and Photoshop. Please feel free to click on an image to view larger version.
Last semester I studied a module on 3D modelling. For the assignment we had to research different spaceships across the years, whether this be from films or real life and create different designs ideas. Once we had decided on a final design, in pairs, we had to model it in AutoDesk 3D Max. The image to the left shows my final spaceship I created. I enjoyed this module as I was experiencing new software and understanding how 3D modelling works.
As well as creating 3D models for this 3D modelling module, I also had an assignment where, in pairs, we had to create a short 15 second claymation. This was really good fun as it could be about anything and I had the task of creating my characters. Once the characters were created from clay, I then had to take lots of pictures (stop motion) and then combine them together to make it seem like the characters were moving. I finally added the'Benny Hill' theme tune music track as I felt this added an extra special something to the clip! Please feel free to click on the video to watch the journey of my characters.
