Working in Electronic Publishing and Design this semester has been a lot of fun. We have created many different types of projects and have learn ways to manover our way around Photoshop and InDesign. This website is created to show what all that I have learned. There are also links provided on this website to show you where I got my inspiration from. The links are there also to help anyone that wants to create something of their own. My thought for creating this website (not only beacause it is my final) but it is here as a tutor or help guide on everything you need to know about websites and how to create them. It takes a lot of work but it is a lot of fun knowing that this website is out there for anyone in the world to see, and I made it all by myself.
Here are some intresting facts provided by: Graphic Design Blog
1.The famous “Uncle Sam” recruitment poster “I Want YOU for the U.S. Army”, designed by James Montgomery Flagg, was actually an inspirational version of the British poster by Alfred Leete.
2. The “Michelin man” appearing in the Michelin logo design is originally named “Monsieur Bibendum”. He also featured as the hero in the Oscar winning movie, “Logorama”.
3. Peretz Rosenbaum was the brainchild behind the IBM logo, the old UPS logo, and many other corporate identities? Don’t be surprised…Peretz Rosenbaum is just the birthname of Paul Rand.
4. Remember the famous NBA logo? I’m afraid it’s not Michael Jordon you see in the depiction. Jerry West is the player depicted in the logo design.
5. Amazingly the first recognized visual communication supported with pictograms and symbols was found between 15,000 – 10,000 BC, in the Lascaux caves in southern France
