Business Card

I will be using a frame from my glitter sequence as my business card design as it is clean, neat, and not too over complicated.

I have been trying to work out where to place the text.

I will need to print out a sample of the designs to check the text is easily read and see which works best.

Not sure if this is great quality online, but this is what I have been working on for my innovation project. I really like the effect i'm getting! Just want to try and make it loop better.

Professional Practice

As Part of our professional practice module, we have to create a design for business cards and post cards to hand out to potential employers.

Using the screen shot I recently uploaded of my animated glitter, I have begun playing around with ideas for business cards.

Innovation Project.. Take One!

I have begun experimenting with Trapcode Particular to produce an animation for my innovation project.

I want to make an animation that sums up my style, as well as the style and fashion within clubbing in the noughties. I feel animating glitter, or something similar, will help me answer my brief.

I have encountered one problem so far. In the particular settings I don't seem to have an option to make my particle type 'custom'. This means I can't get the texture to be the layer I have made. I have had a play around just using simple colour, and the screen shot above is what I managed to produce. I am fairly happy with this as a first attempt, but aim to work out a way of getting the clip to loop properly. I will also ask a technician to see if they can work out how to find my custom setting!

Here is a clearer abstract for my innovation project, as my other paragraph sounded like I was focusing on the use of drugs more than the visuals at that time:

I will be looking into fashion and visuals within clubbing, looking particularly at certain era's and the influence of drugs on these visuals within the 60's through to the 2000's. I aim to experiment with Trapcode particular, a plug in for Adobe After Effects, eventually producing a clean, attractive abastract animation that sums up the style of the noughties.
