Project 4: Almost done....

Project 4 has been moving along relatively easily. Despite some changes that needed to be made, our group has done an excellent job of getting things done, dividing up the work, and making any necessary changes the law students need.

I took on designing section five for the final stretch of our assignment. My section was to have an info-graphic of sorts, so it was fun to find a way to incorporate that into my section. I used the progression of colors to mimic our headers and went from there.

In Progress: Project 3 & 4

Project 3 is coming along slowly but surely. Designing a map of Des Moines area bike routes and trails was much more complicated than I anticipated. That aspect is definitely still in the works. However, I have narrowed down typefaces and colors for the calendar aspect of my design.

Project 4 is moving along rather smoothly. After Rachel and I designed and developed master pages for both the document and the presentation, we divvied up work between other members in our group and began working, each taking a section. Here is what I have done so far for my section:

Project 4: Initial Ideas

Our group of law students described a type of narrative that they wanted for the feel of their document and presentation. They wanted it be dull in the beginning and then progressively get more colorful as they offered solutions to the problem they were tackling

Because we currently do not have the actual document at our disposal to work with, my group and I have decided to choose colors, typefaces, and create potential mock-up pages for the document. At this point, this is our only way to explore different avenues in terms of layout.
