Color Wheel Poster Project
Vocabulary for this project:
Day 1 & 2 (Color Wheel Photos):
Day 3 & 4: Color Acquity Test/Psychology of Color
We’ll need some text for our poster. Pick a single color you wish to feature in your poster. Use the following web sites to read about the psychology of color and how color is perceived differently in different cultures.
Create a Microsoft Word document (Use this Template) and copy/paste any text you can find related to the color you have chosen. Your text should include both bulleted lists as well as paragraph text. It is a good idea to edit your word file to remove any formatting from the web page. Make sure that you’re copying the sources (web address) of your information as we’ll be giving credit for the text sources.
Day 5: Photography Section
Take seven photos of an object that is of the color you’re going to focus on for your poster. Try to use a low depth of field for these shots and don’t be afraid to fill your composition with the color. In other words, get close to your subject! Upload your images to your Color Wheel Poster folder.
Day 6 & 7: Thumbnails, Rough and layout in InDesign - details to come next week.
