Google SketchUp

Filed under: Web Art II — Mia @ 2:25 am

This is my first experience with the free software, Google SketchUp. I first read about the program when I was researching options for our class Google Speed Show. SketchUp animation files can be exported as movie files and maintain their transparency when imported into Final Cut Pro. I think SketchUp could be a tool for making 3-D text introductions for future video projects. For now, I’m using the 3-D text as a template for a typography assignment.

Exploring the Grid

Filed under: Typography I — Mia @ 8:00 pm

Our Typography assignment was to explore different ways of conveying the same information. Each design was created within the framework of assignment limitations and with a specific grid guide.
