After RMCAD, I attended FRCC to learn about graphic Design. This section contains my work that I have done in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.
We had to show data on a chart that was informative and entertaining. Long before the official trailer for Star Wars episode 7 came out, I wanted to show how the series has changed over time. I came up with this chart showing how much the film cost to make, how much it made the opening weekend, and how much it made nationally and internationally when it first came out. I used vehicles and characters from the series that the fans would know to further engage the readers.
I noticed a few trends. First of all, the first three films and the last four films are separated about three years apart, except for the gap between episode 6 and 1.
Next, while a LOT of people had mixed feeling about episode one, enough time had passed to advance technology to the point that everyone was excited to see it. And seeing as it made the most money internationally, this showed us the reach of the fans.
Lastly, the Clone Wars CGI animated film, release in 2008, had some of the lowest numbers, but the opening weekend still made more than the first two did, even both combinded.
I can only wonder how episode 7 will be taken?
For this project, we had to design a box to hold a product of our choice. I chose to do Brach's strawberry Bon-Bons candy. Nobody knows that they are called Brach's, but when you describe the candy, especially what the wrapper look like, everyone then knows what candy it is. So I came up with a box to hold a bunch of them. I figured, since everyone knows what they look like, make the box match the wrapper. I had to have the color go past the lines for a print bleed so the box didn't have blank paper in the wrong areas.
