Product Label Project:

Spring 2001

As students we had to create a product label for a beer,soda or juice product using Adobe Illustrator. the product label should be placed in the middle of an 8x11 page in portrait orientation which should measure 4" wide by 3"high .This should have either a circle or oval incorporated in the design so you could used the path tex tool to conform to elliptical path. But what I did to be able to show a couple of the lables I did I combine 2 for viewing on the web. But my paper portfolio will have proper dimensions. We also had to use either scanned photos or an image that we had drawn using the pen tool. If we scanned it had to be at 150DPI and scanned to the size we needed for project we couldn't scale down .We also had to incorporate a pattern fill or a pattern which we had created with the pattern brush .This would then be printed out in color. I did a number of these which I handed in all and then would be graded on which ever one was thought to be the best. I could never hand in just one project. when I got going I saw all the different possibilities and all my creativity would go on over load.

Gradient Mesh In Class Work:

This was one of my in class assignments which I worked on besides having a weekly project to work on. For this class work we worked in Adobe Photoshop Illustator. We learned how to use the gradient mesh tool.Both I and my teacher really liked how my eggplant turned out.
