    Description:Two The Dark Knight Rises movie postersombined to form a montage of Bane and

    Batmans upper bodies.

    selected the images, trying to find two that had the faces aligned inbout the same manner. I used the Bane picture as the backgroundecause it had the title of the movie and the RISE in the background. Iut Batmans torso out of his picture, created a layer on the Bane imagend inserted the image. I created a mask and faded out Batmans leftide. I then made another layer onto which I copied the Batman symbolnd THE DARK KNIGHT RISES from the Bane picture. I put that layer onop of the list so it would show first after trying a bunch of different wayso coax the words onto the top of the Batman mask from underneath,

    which wasnt working. I added A storm is coming to the bottom. Ihen resized the image so it would take up the whole 8.511 space andnded up having to use the Content Aware filler for the top quarter inchr so. I had to use the stamp to fix a few pieces in there as well as toover up one of the logos in the bottom left. I applied a filter to sharpenhe edges, and I think it came out really well.

    Description:An advertisement for an annual crab feed

    undraiser in Santa Cruz. Created with Word.

    scanned an image I found in the Ensign and trimmed it to fit the page.The picture was big enough that I decided to just have the picture onne side of the page and the title and all the copy on another side. Iried doing it landscape, but the fit of the picture didnt work for that,o I decided to do it portrait. I first had to decide if I wanted have theicture on the top or the bottom, so I opened up two windows of Wordnd looked at both ways side-by-side. I came up with a very rough

    version of the body copy and title for this part, just to see how the wordswould fit on the page. I decided to go with the picture on top becausehe page looked more lopsided with the picture on the bottom. Fromhere I put the title, body copy and DTP in mostly how they are now. I

    made a 12-pt. black line to get my spacing right, and then decided thatt looked pretty good between the two lines of the title, so I left it there.also like how it balances out the fact that Day hangs over the edge of

    he second line. After the draft, I decided to add the line above the titlen so that Id be sure that the benefactor was clear.

    ackground of.

    imported the picture to Photoshop and cropped it to 66. I usedhe quick selection tool to select the flower.

    Description:The idea and body copy for this brochure actually came from myob as the departments internship TA.

    first created the body copy for this, which was pretty easy,onsidering I wrote the body copy myself not too long ago for aeparate project. I then made a new InDesign document with twoages and set my body copy in text boxes. Then I looked onlineor some images that would relate to the information. This tookome time, but I eventually found some that go well. I opened aew of these in Photoshop and used the quick select tool to makehe selection and create a mask. Then I saved that and placed itn InDesign. Then I used the TextWrap tool to put spacing aroundhe cutout so the text would wrap around it. I had to play around

    with this some to make sure I wasnt creating any weird spaces orwidows. I had to change my colors a couple times to get it to look

    ow I wanted it. I wanted to have a background color, but I endedp just using a white background for simplicitys sake. I also usedhe paragraph styles tool to make having different headings and

    ody copy easier.

    Description:Three logos I made using Illustrator for a tech company calledXi3 Industries.

    Use Adobe Illustrator to create three logos. I used the text toolor the first two. I made the words into objects and split them so Iould move the letters some. I manipulated the letters in the firstogo so that they were touching, which they werent originally.

    The same is true for the second. The third one involved usinghe ellipse tool to make the mouse and then using the pen toolo make the letters and the buttons for the mouse. I had to groupnd ungroup the letters several times to move them around.
