You will receive a failing grade if you do not:

  1. Create a text document (you can use Word) in MLA format.
  2. Attach the document to an email.
  3. Send the email to me with the subject: FINAL EXAM, Your Name, Your Class Period
  4. Send the email before the end of the the final exam period.
  5. Insure that I receive your email.

The subjects of your text document should be:

What did you learn this year in this class?

Is Facebook and Twitter going to last, or are they going to die quickly like MySpace has?

It should be at least two paragraphs, both paragraphs should be at least 4 sentences.

If you send me a text document attached to an email with the right subject line, you will receive a passing grade.

Finishing Your Final Project

May 19, 2010

Today will be a grading day.

I will be looking for:

  1. 3 drawings
  2. a poster
  3. press release
  4. animation

Have them all open or I will pass you by. There is not enough time to wait for everyone to open each document.


You will have until next Wednesday the 26th at the beginning of class to turn in your final project.

This is what you need to  get a 100 on your final project:

1. Everything must be in a three ring binder. Everything must be printed. Nothing handwritten will be accepted.

2. The binder must have a cover with a picture of your product, your names and period number (printed).

3. The pictures, poster and press release must be printed and punched and put in your binder. You cannot print these items on my printer, there are too many. You will need to find somewhere to print the pictures, the poster, the press release and your cover. You should print in color.

4. You need to put your animation on a CD. Put the CD in a case or envelope so you can fix it in your binder and it doesn’t get lost. I will  not supply blank CDs, so get one now. Don’t wait until the morning it’s due to try to find a CD. You can burn the CD on the computers in 153.

IF you show up on Tuesday the 25th or before with the cover, the poster, the press release, the pictures and the CD in an envelope, I will give you a binder to use. No binders will be given out on Wednesday the 26th when the project is due.

Summary: get everything printed out and put the animation on a CD, bring it on or before the 25th to get a binder, and you will get a 100!


NEXT Year

May 18, 2010

If you plan to take Graphic Design and Illustration with me next year, talk to me.

Product Animation

May 13, 2010

Using Flash, create an animated ad for your product. It must be at least 15 seconds long, and must show your product.

You have until the end of class Tuesday, 5/18, so if you need to redo a couple of Flash lessons to remember how to use Flash, you have time.

Create a poster

May 12, 2010

For your final project product, create a poster that tells its price and where to buy it.

You can use Photoshop, Illustrator or Word.

Due by the end of class today.

Grading

May 11, 2010

Today you need to show me your three illustrations of your product and your press release.

Progress Reports come out on Friday.

Final Project – Step Two

May 10, 2010

Create a press release for your product like the two in this folder:

S:\shared\students\Bjerke\CAMM\Press Releases

Make it look good.

Your press release must be in a pdf format, and must have a picture of your product IN the press release (not a separate page!).

Remember, you made up the product, so you can make up the details on the press release (how much will it cost? what is your company’s name, address, website? what are the features of the product? where will people be able to buy it? when will it be available? make it exciting – you’re trying to sell something!)

Due in my email inbox by the BEGINNING of class Monday, 5/10.

Your Final Project

May 4, 2010

Your final project will be due the last week of school. I will take grades on parts of the project as we go.

First you have to have an idea for a product. Make it simple, like I’ve said before, like a bar of soap, or a broom or a special paper clip. The simpler you make it, the easier it will be to describe and create a picture of.

In fact, that’s your first step. Create a picture of the product. You have to create it in Illustrator, and you have to show the product without labeling, with labeling and in a box (that’s three separate pictures).

You must work with one partner. You may want to choose a partner who is familiar with Illustrator if you are not. If you were not in this class first semester and you have never worked with Illustrator or Photoshop, then pick a partner who can help you.

Due at the end of class Friday are your pictures of your product. Make a picture of the product, add a label or logo to it, then create a box to sell it in. Label the box and put all of the necessary information on the box. You will need a company name, address, instructions and a description on the box.

When you think that you’re done with your product and its box, show it to me. Show it to me before Monday’s class when I grade them so you can fix any problems and get a 100 on Monday.

If you get a 90 or better on this project, you will not have to take the long multiple choice section of the final exam.
