PROJECT 00 INTRODUCTION

Introduction

THIS IS MY FUTURE The Future Plan represents a lot for me. When I am creating, I need to consider the future of my work. I use the skills I learned to make the design successful and can be used in the future. The Future Plan also includes my dreams. Being a professional designer is my dream. In the future, I will continue to learn and improve my design skills. I believe I will approach the future world step by step.

issues of design appropriateness to communicate to varying audiences. Explore innovative ways to communicate with text and image. Synthesize type system principles into the final production of a book.

INSTRUCTOR David Hake PROJECT Your future starts today DELIVERABLE Book KEYWORDS

SOLUTION The book is about the future city, both scientific and modern. This book has three chapters that describe the architecture, public institutions and infrastructure. I designed two infographics to show the technology of the future city. I chose blue because blue shows a sense of modernity. Photographic images make the content more realistic. In order to make the design consistent, Color balance made them look unified.
