New Website Have A Look

So basically when I was doing my HND we had a brief to create a website for ourselves, overall I wasn’t happy with this at all so I have taken it upon myself to create myself a more professional site, in which possible clients etc. can contact me on and look into myself abit more.

I will be updating this site all the time and it isn’t 100% yet, I have a lot more planned.

So if you get a chance have a look on: http://alexrichardson93.wix.com/alexrichardsondesign

Any questions or know how contact me on either the new site or via here!

Initail Idea’s, Computer Editing, Sketching

I would have normally sketched all of my initial idea’s in my sketch book but after so long since doing this last I’m having trouble translating what’s in my head to paper, hence why I doing it all on the computer.

At home I don’t have “Adobe Illustrator” yet so I’ve been using a program called Macromedia Fireworks” To do all of my initial editing and idea creating. Another main reason for me to do this is for me personal to see if some of my first idea’s for my poster design work and I’m open to any and all feedback given.

None of these designs will be final there just quick edits of some idea’s that I’ve got and I need to get them out of me before I forget them. I have used this program briefly in my A level ICT I did about 2 Years so hopefully it comes back to me pretty quickly, I am going to be taking screen shots and explaining how I am doing something, why I am doing it.

For my first idea I really wanted a black and white image so I inserted one of the photo’s I took in London and I made it black and white.

This design is going to be pretty simple it just an image with some bold text.

Don’t pay too much attention to the font of the text because it will be different in my later developments this is just for me to see if the composition works, I’ve done to variations on with a black background and one with a white. Even though the black background makes the text stand out more I prefer the white background because it makes the text more legible.

When quickly creating these visual idea aids I have realised that the program I am using has some limitations I cannot do some things with the text that I wish I could I order to show my idea in the correct format but no worry I will have to sketch out some idea’s.

I know that these designs are pretty much all the same, but I have a pretty clear idea of what I want it to look like, none of these designs are final at all becuase I still have some idea’s that will need to be sketched out and developed on paper.

I will be posting these idea’s over the next couple of days.
