Our first project for Introduction to Craft was to create a die-cut box:
We had to make a few telescope boxes and bind a number of books. Here's my hard-cover book:
And inside the box there'd be a snake:
We also had to come up with three related packaging items, bags and boxes, that have an additional use to that of carrying items.
Here's my bag/hat:
And each one of them had to have a tag with two sides that was made out of cut paper.
For our Typography 1 class we had to create a brewery concept with beer labels, coasters, a menu, and a booklet, given a typeface and a target audience. Mine was Bodoni and women in the 20s and 30s living in the quaint neighborhood of Virginia Highlands in Atlanta.
For semiotics, one of our projects was to create a poster for a Kubrick or Scorsese film:
I took the photo myself, with my point-and-shoot camera, but I got a bunch of help from my Photoshop 2 teacher with the setting, and lighting, and fake ice cubes.
So, yes, it's been crazy, and I'm enjoying it now that I can do whatever I want with my time (such as doodling #3yroldscribbles) and that I can catch up on sleep and clean the house from all the mess created by all this cut paper! We'll see how the 2nd quarter goes in a few weeks.
