Assignment 45: Postcards - due during your finals.

Post  Admin on Wed Jun 01, 2011 8:46 am

For this project we will be designing (but not printing) a postcard intended for silkscreening.
Postcard dimensions: 3.5 x 5 inches (either portrait or landscape).

Technical requirements: Because these are being designed for silkscreening, they must be reduced to two colors: a background color and one ink color. You must pick something other than plain black and white for this project. Because we are using one ink color you may not use gradients - so for example, if your image is red and yellow, each area must be either flat red or flat yellow - no orange. If your ink is black, you cannot use shades of gray.

Creative requirements: The postcards should be fun, quirky or serious, not read as a corporate style advertisement for AAW. These are intended as standalone art pieces. You may not use the AAW logo, the words Arts Academy in the Woods, or "AAW" on the postcard. Additionally, you may not simply submit a photograph reduced to two colors. You must do some design work in photoshop.

Grading rubric: 6 points total
1 point: correct sizing
2 points: correct ink setup (not black and white, no gradients - just two solid colors)
3 points: creativity. Is the piece your own original work? Does it include design in addition (or in place of) a simple photo? Is the composition and subject matter memorable, or does it just look like a doodle or a snap shot of one of your friends? Does it have broad appeal to the general public?
