About the Design Brief Branding Guide

Featured image by me

I am coming to the end of the road for this project, the branding guide. This will mark my place in the industry, it is a collection of everything I have done thus far, so it has to all look good. It is not just putting everything together, they have to match and they have look aesthetically pleasing for the client. I am almost done with this thing, so i will tell you all about what i have done thus far. It is very difficult coming up with a good design for a branding guide, but i did find a pretty good inspiration.

It all started with an inspiration, Graphic Burger ended up being where I looked to start. The fourth one i found ended being the one I used for a reference. I definitely learned that I should have followed a grid for each of my projects, if I did, they would have been more pleasing to the eye. My least favorite thing to do was actually trying to find an inspiration for this thing, it was time consuming. I enjoyed typing the information about the company, it was very fun to come up with it. The most helpful tool i had was Google, to find all this info, despite it being time consuming.

There is a reason for all of this work I have to do, because a brand guide is standard for all types of businesses to guide new recruits working in graphic design on how the products should look and what rules to follow. They help all of the people involved in the company of whatever you are thinking of. I have been trying to follow guidelines of my own for the past few months for this class, not all of them has been perfect, but I have learned how to improve over the past few months. I will show you a few of my works that I am really proud of.

The work mark on her shirt was made in illustrator, it is in Go Go Poster Punch font, the 8 bit logo was also made in illustrator. They went through different revisions, I was not proud of most of them, but eventually i had found the perfect design for both.
This is my business card for Let, I followed a grid when I made this one, there fore making it look organized. The black and red color scheme makes me feel ready to play games.

Article B6: Write a Tutorial: Making an Animated Logo Gif

Making a GIF on Photoshop sounds likes something you cant do, but you definitely can. I will show you that it is as simple as counting from one to ten. You are going to have to get your base though so you can actually get started, perhaps you can make it in Illustrator or get it from screen shots from a different program or what have you. So boot up Photoshop and get started on this fun project, this could be very useful for anything you want to do in the future. So lets get to the first step.

Step One; Make your subject

First you get your subject for your logo whether you make it in illustrator, or just get something else from your computer, you can use it to make this GIF. Make sure you have a reference for your logo, like so…..

This is required if you want to have a logo. So any way, on to step two.

Step 2 Import into Photoshop

Putting in your image into Photoshop is quite simple, all you have to do is drag the project from the illustrator program and then plop it into Photoshop and then start to animate it. I suggest you have different animation frames in illustrator before you begin. This next step is the most important.

Step 3; Animate

To begin the animation all you have to do is open the Window tab and then you select the Timeline tab. Select the layers that you want to use and drag them into the timeline, they will be the frames of animation. The purple bar represents how many seconds the frame will appear for. Test your animation over and over again until you are satisfied with it, you will know when that will be. Now for the final step.

Step 4; Export as a GIF

To finish your GIF so you can share with anyone you want, all you have do is hover over the File tab and look for another tab called export, and then you must go to Save for Web (Legacy) When you get there, you change the file type to a GIF format. Make sure everything is in order and your sure that it works, press the save button and put in whatever file you want. Then you are done! You just made a GIF in Photoshop, pat yourself on the back why don’t you? Anytime you forget this, come back to this tutorial, you can thank me later.

Setting the Mood, Mood Boards

https://unsplash.com/@xteemu The source for the image that is featured.

This might a new topic for anyone who is new to the work space, for anyone who does not know anything about them i will lay it out for you. The Mood Board is a presentation for your new project or something of the like, that conveys a feeling of what your product, or some one else’s product, is like, hence why its called a “Mood Board”. It is needed if you want to tell your boss or employer about how your product will work. It needs to be different from the competition, be unique, and it needs to be ascetically pleasing to you and your consumer.

5 Tools to know when making Mood Boards

I found most of this in this article; https://www.creativebloq.com/graphic-design/16-great-tools-creating-mood-boards-91412793

Pinterest; This is a social media platform that is used to post art, stories and things like that. It seems like you can post a mood board on the website or app so you can show someone the idea for the product. I think this could be useful to share with businesses all over the world, it can help with SEO and can maximize your chance of employment.

Milatone; A website that you have to sign up for to make a mood board. It doesn’t seem like the best choice, but it look like it can be used for variety of other projects.

Ever note; This is an app used to take notes, it can be used to write down ideas, but also, oddly enough be used for a mood board. Definitely good in case you forget something.

The Mat board; Image sharing site The Mat board is specifically targeting creatives as an alternative to the more mainstream Pinterest. – Creativebloq. Pinterest should be a better alternative.

Google Slide; This is the definitive way to make mood boards in my opinion. This service is something you can access if you have a google account, it is connected to google drive, a cloud based service, so you can store the mood board so you don’t lose it. This way of making mood boards is fool proof.

Make sure your boss is not ‘Board’

From my experience making the mood board i chose to do, i have to follow exactly what the outline is, but i have to make sure it is unique to the other competitors, otherwise it wont work out if you want a job. I made a few mistakes, like not using the right image, or using a color that was unappealing, to fix this, i went back and edited my mood board.Make sure when you make this thing that you double check your work and perfect your mood board.
