Michelle Delgado's insight:

Great experience at english classes this trimester.

We had fun and we learnt a lot, we read the book 'What Men Live By'' by Leo Tolstoi, such a good story.

  This is the book my team and I designed, we made part of it's design, some illustrations and an alphabet soup.

It's our pleasure to share this work to you, so we hope you'll enjoy it. :) !

How To Prepare Your Artwork for Special Print Effects

How To Prepare Your Artwork for Special Print Effects | Vectorizing thoughts | Scoop.it
It’s every print designer’s dream to work on a project that involves special print effects. Varnishes, fluorescents, foils and embossing are just some examples of cool finishes that can be applied by industrial printing companies, but the added cost makes these projects quite a rarity. If you’re lucky enough to have an adventurous client, or …
Michelle Delgado's insight:

Another important part of graphic design ~not very common to aboard, but not because of this, less important. ~ it is preparing your artwork for printing. Using the traditional printing or the modern printing process and knowing how this process works is very important and useful for graphic designers at the time we have to print logo designs, vectors, or any other digital work :)

What makes a great logo?

What makes a great logo?

When to design a logo?

Favourite Logos.

Michelle Delgado's insight:

Most of graphic designers have designed a logo at least once in their lifetime, but as Micheal Bierut puts it “the next time you are tempted to design a logo… chances are, it’s already been done.” In his new book he shows us a ton of logos, and gives us a huge reference to symbols and logotypes. Also, in this interview we can learn about what makes a great logo.

What Men Live By - Leo Tolstoi.swf

What Men Live By a short story by Leo Tolstoy

 

 A shoemaker named Simon, who had neither house nor land of his own, lived with his wife and children in a peasant’s hut, and earned his living by his work. Work was cheap, but bread was dear, and what he earned he spent for food. The man and his wife had but one sheepskin coat between them for winter wear, and even that was torn to tatters, and this was the second year he had been wanting to buy sheep-skins for a new coat. Before winter Simon saved up a little money: a three-rouble note lay hidden in his wife’s box, and five roubles and twenty kopeks were owed him by customers in the village.

Interview - Marisa Quiroz.

Interview - Marisa Quiroz. | Vectorizing thoughts | Scoop.it

Interview:

Marisa Quiroz is about to graduate from graphic design at URBE, she works as a freelance designer for a variety of brands in Maracaibo as Amelie Café, Kepen, Cocina China, Maraplus and RN.

Michelle Delgado's insight:

María Isabel Quiroz is about to graduate from graphic design at URBE, she works as a freelance designer for a variety of brands in Maracaibo as Amelie Café, Kepen, Cocina China, Maraplus and RN.

She has worked in the past in different design agencies, now she is working on graphics related to Social Media.


On the interview, Marisa defined that ‘’Graphic Design is about solving problems in a visual way. Still, graphic designers use texts, illustrations, symbols, photography, textures, colors to create effective ways to communicate in a simple and functional way what the client is trying to say so that you can get the user's attention.’’


Marisa was influenced to pursue graphic design since she was younger, she loved to communicate everything through music, dancing, talking and art in general. She says she loves the feeling she gets when she creates something. ‘’When I work on a composition, I feel like there's something from God that is in me since he is the first designer that has ever existed (I believe in God and I think he created the world). In other words, he's the creator and I am a creator, too (and that's awesome). On the other hand, I think I have always considered myself as a solution-maker. I am motivated to help people and inspired then, also, I'm passionate about arts and communication.’’


‘’The educational process to become a graphic designer, normally, you have to go through a career that can go from three to five years. During this time, you get to learn from a variety of subjects such as illustration, branding, packaging, etc. Eventually, you sort of feel inclined to work in a specific design field.’’


Marisa says lots of people agreed that you have to be creative and curious to be a graphic designer but there are other skills you need to develop to become a successful designer. ‘’First at all, you need to be talented; you must have an instinctive ability to exercise good judgement in manipulating the formal elements of visual communication. Also, you need to develop social, business and technical skills.’’


She worked on a publicity and branding agency since it's the field of design she loves the most. Now she works on graphics that are related to Social Media for a variety of brands and she thinks it's pretty neat because it is also related to branding and illustration.


The things she loved from school life were meeting lots of people, ‘’My classmates are very talented and my professors were great’’, she said. ‘’The hardest part from school life is when you have to work for long hours and how sometimes you don't get any sleep.’’

Her plans for the future are to work as a brand consultant and to be able to create unique brands that can give something positive to the world.


Learning this career it’s a great experience for those who are really passionate about graphic design, Marisa mentioned one of her most gratifying moments, she said: ‘’I have to admit that I have won several awards in the past few years because of my work, but what I considered very satisfying is when you design something for someone and they tell you how grateful they are. I remember one time I designed a Wedding Invitation and how the mother of the bride got very emotional and told me how grateful she was and how beautiful the work was. That family was very happy that time. There's no doubt for me that the most rewarding part is when you make someone smile because of your work. I would only recommend someone to become a graphic designer is they are truly passionate about it because it is a very hard thing to do. You have to work very hard and make lots of sacrifices if you want to be a successful one.’’

What Men Live By - Activity

What Men Live By - Activity | Vectorizing thoughts | Scoop.it

Group 1 REPORT:

 

For this activity, we split the classroom into 5 groups, each with five members. Combining our technical illustrations to elaborate the story by Leo Tolstoy "What Men Live By".

 

We, group 1, have had to make the Time Slider book, as well as acknowledgments, illustrations for the story´s introduction and first chapter; We have also added an activity crossword puzzle in relation to the story and a glossary.

 

Our group is divided as follows:

 

1. Wendy Mavares - Illustrations

http://www.scoop.it/t/be-creative-by-be-creative

 

2. Carlos Castillo-Illustrations

4. Michelle Delgado - Exercise

http://www.scoop.it/t/vectorizingt

 

5. Nathanael Becerra - Cover

http://www.scoop.it/t/web-animations

 

Tools:

 

We used the following software :

 

1- Adobe Photoshop.

2- Adobe Illustrator.

3- Adobe Indesign.

4- Easy Paint Tool Sai. (In this program we have used a drawing tablet).

 

In this part we see Simon gets up one morning to make a living selling shoes he does with his own hands, he and his family are poor, and he earns barely enough money for food. That morning, he was trying to make a sale to finally buy some sheepskin for warmth, but when he knocked on the door the customer wasn't at home. After a bad day, on the way home, Simon suddenly meets a young man lying on the floor and this is where the story begins.

 

It has been a very fun activity, combining our techniques has resulted in a rather interesting book.

For me, this story is powerful and talks about impotant things like family, compassion, the importance of the money, and other things useful in the life, leaving a strong menssage about how to live.

Carlos Castillo's insight:

This is a job for my English class in which dividing us illustrate group in part of the letter written by Leo Tolstoy "What men live by" history.

 

It's been quite fun to do this activity on this story. We used two different methods of illustration making a contrast between the characters and the setting, but trabajn in harmony.

Michelle Delgado's insight:

There are too much tools for design; figures, typography, pictures, illustration and ideas, they all are important for designers, but another important factor is the Colour. It's a perfect complement for design, colour helps ideas to be understood, they communicate things subconsciously and people can get the message because of it. Colour gives life and meaning to a design. So, we can do a great design or illustration, but sometimes the colour decision is not the best, so here are some advices to help you know how to choose a colour theme to a specific design. :)

It's Nice That : Graphic Design: Tata&Friends illustrate numbers to make maths a lot more interesting

It's Nice That : Graphic Design: Tata&Friends illustrate numbers to make maths a lot more interesting | Vectorizing thoughts | Scoop.it

 “Learning maths has always been a pain to us. These numbers represent the new tools for an outdated education system. Complex things can be learned faster if they are taught with stimulating and fun tools.”

Michelle Delgado's insight:

I love how we can use design to stimulate people and change their perspective of things. Design can transform things and make them a lot more interesting and nice to the eyes.

I think this is a very smart method to make maths friendly and easier for kids. Illustrating is one of the best tools to make kids interested so it can pass from being a pain for them and start to see it fun!  A nice way to solve little problems through graphical ideas :)

Hello :)

Hello :) | Vectorizing thoughts | Scoop.it
Michelle Delgado's insight:

My name is Michelle Delgado and I'm from venezuela. I'm 20 years old and i'm a graphic design student at URBE, now i'm on the 9th trimester.

 

I love listening to music, watching TV series, eating and singing. I don't play any instrument yet but I would like to. I don't go out with friends so often, but when I do, I really enjoy it. I like drawing cartoons and vectorizing, it's one of my hobbies.

 

I like english because it has opened a new world for me, the influence of music and movies motivated me to learn it, that way it allowed me to meet people from different countries. 

 

What I hate are frogs and octopuses, I have nightmares with them and I think they're ugly. I also hate waiting on the supermarket when there are too much people. 

 

There are many things I want to achieve like graduating from URBE and to travel. I would like to go to China to improve my chinese. I also would like to go to Japan and Thailand because I have friends there and I'd be nice to know those countries and their culture, it's something very interesting for me :)  I also have many interests related to psychology and languages.

 

About Graphic Design

 

Studying graphic design has been one of the greatest experiences I've had. Besides it has taught me a lot of things, I think contributing with design leaves a great feeling of helping others.

 

Other thing that I think it's very interesting is, how visual communication can influence people and change their thinking.. but the most great thing is design can break the boundaries of languages, design can be universal.
