Obviously this is a very rough draft of my Graphic Design Project. I was inspired to go along with the three dollar bill concept by one of my brothers. The idea behind the three dollar bill is to express Sigma Alpha Mu’s three ideals, true manhood, democracy and humanity. I have not yet decided how to include this into my project and that is why it is currently missing.
I ran into a couple of issues while approaching this project, and I ultimately decided to just completely re-think my project, which led me to what I came up with. The biggest challenge to me was remembering what actions to do to get photo shop to do what I want. There was a lot of trial and error involved in the process of making this project.
I used the eraser tool and color blending tools the most in making this project. I mostly layered the images in such a way that I could erase part of the top image to reveal the image beneath it. I also changed the colors of some of the images to match the colors of the bill.
In an attempt to match my theme I plan to add something to make this more of a “recruitment poster” since I am documenting the growth of Sigma Alpha Mu. I plan on experimenting over the next week with different ideas to hopefully come up with something that truly expresses what I am trying to convey throughout this semester in my projects.
Here is the draft of my Graphic Design project:
