Symmetrical balance can be described as having equal “weight” on equal sides of a central axis. It is also called formal balance because a form (formula) is used -- a mirror image about a vertical axis. The results look formal, organized and orderly. When the elements are arranged equally on either side of a central axis, the result is Bilateral symmetry. This axis may be horizontal or vertical. It is also possible to build formal balance by arranging elements equally around a central point , resulting in radial symmetry.

This project was made in Adobe Photoshop. The objective is to create a series of 3 image manipulations that incorporates the elements of COLOR & TEXTURE and uses Typography as an overall focal point in the completed images. This project also used several adjustment layers, layer masking, and layer blending modes. I used Eminem as a subject and tried to make the theme of the image match his music.

Type Quote Poster This project was done in Adobe Photoshop. The objective was to take any person and a quote they have said and mask it onto the face (Develop a poster combining type and portrait photo). Various amounts of textures, adjustments, and layer masking were used in this project. I chose a famous hockey player by the name of Jonathan Toews. Hockey is my favorite sport to watch. I liked the quote he said because it was motivational.
Geometric Collage Portrait
The objective of this project is to create a pattern design in Illustrator, then take that pattern and combine it with a landscape photo in Photoshop producing a Geometric collage. Most of these types of collages are made with landscapes. This project does combine the use of two Adobe programs. Several layers were being made. Majority of the work was made in Illustrator. In Photoshop, it was used to add adjustment layers and textures to the work. Elements and Principals that can be seen is a line and some balance.

This project was made in Illistrator and Photoshop. This project tests the artist’s creativity. A well-executed logo embodies the spirit and character of a company. It is “instant identity,” a way of capturing how companies feel about themselves and conveying that image to the outside world. Pictorial symbols have existed throughout history of humankind – from the pictographs used by prehistoric people to the visual insignia used to represent families in the Middle Ages. But, it was not until the Industrial Revolution that the use of brand names, labels and trademarks became widespread. The objectives and skills are to translate verbal ideas into something visual, develope logo designs, and undertsand the basics of logo designing. I chose Hamburger Heaven. The goal was to make a logo for the client, match the company well in order to make their logo stand out, and mean something to people. Multiple steps were taken. This project started off with a pencil and paper, scanned and made into a file on the computer, and used programs to make the logo come to life. This may help me in my future of career if I wanted to start a business of my own. 24 COMPUTER ART DIGITAL PORTFOLIO
