Final Pieces.

# 15. Final Projects 

A. Type Specimen Poster - 18' x 24' 
I really enjoyed starting the year off with this project. I am still developing a series of other famous songs ft. female names, such as 'Dirty Diana' or 'Roxanne' that I want to screen print & possibly enter into the TDC competition.

B. Infographic - 13' x 19' 
When first assigned this project, I wanted to do an infographic about marijuana vs. alcohol -- but being that I had no prior experience of designing an infographic, I decided to make it more personal.

C. Package Design - Work in Progress
This was my favorite assignment -- being that I was able to completely rebrand Carol's Daughter. During the break I am going to completely work on the packaging & actual labels -- as well as finish the logo. Nonetheless, I am very proud w. the color palettes for both the hair products & bath products.

D. CD Covers - Work in Progress
This was my final assignment, to redo some album covers I disliked. Had a hectic week, but still finishing the complete packaging on this. I want to enter both pieces into the TBC -- so it will be finished within a week or so.

I enjoyed the class -- sad it won't be continuing next semester. :( Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas & a great New Years!

14. CD Cover Remake Pt. 2

First, I'm in love with the typeface: OPTI Giant.

I personally think the ultra condensed typeface makes everything look better. But, that's just my opinion.
Diddy's Dirty Money's 'Last Train To Paris' was the second CD cover I decided to remake. The reason I chose to remake this album was because the colors chosen were too closely associated with a one of Kanye West's recent single album covers 'Runaway'. So, I decided to change it up a little bit & try to make the album cover more related to the album -- which follows Diddy's alter ego as he travels from London to Paris to regain love.

The album it reminded me of:

So, I decided to remake my own:

13. CD Cover Remake

Lately, I've been really upset with recent album covers of artist that I listen to from time to time. Out of pure boredom I decided to start remaking album covers that I dislike. I'm considering turning this into my final project as I continue working on not only the album covers -- but the whole album booklet.

My first remake cover is Nicki Minaj's 'Pink Friday'. The first image is the current cover out in stores, followed by my remake. This is just the album cover -- I am working on the booklet.

10.Infographic #3

#10: Revised Infographic - Twitter

Here's my revised infographic. At our last critique I was just told to fix up the kerning, so I did.

09. Package Design #2

#9: Revised Package Design - Carol's Daughter 

This is my revised version of the labels I want to create for Carol's Daughter.
So, once again for the hair products -- I divided that up into 5 categories (which coincide w. the Carol's Daughter products) & each category will represent a color. As for the bath products, I divided that up into 5 categories as well & each bath collection will represent a color.

Nonetheless, I want to narrow it down to the layout I want to use for the labeling so I can start getting precise measurements & what not. I have different size jar labels, as well as bottle labels & boxes. Once I pick a layout to go with I will actually put the packaging together.
