This is my fifth blog. I am finally Comfortable with SEO. It really is an important tool for bloggers. I may even consider adding a blog to my future portfolio site. Blogging is such a great way to give viewers a perspective of how you work, what your views are, personality and etc. As for the watermark issue. I think Dawn is finally happy with her pick (Choice #4). She wanted something elegant/modern and clean that wouldn’t be intrusive to the viewer. This was my favorite pick as well. Check it out below:
This is the new Project Dawn has me working on. If she likes it she is going to have a full 12X12 version of the book printed. She showed me one of the albums. It was perfect bound in white leather and had thick, cardboard pages. This book she explained, “I want it to be more artistic”…and no words! This is quite challenging. As a designer I must solely rely on a white background, grid lines, full bleeds and a story. It has been a refreshing experience. Working with what you have really can inspire out of the box thinking. I will admit I was quite excited that I was able to match the perfect story line of photos in spread three and create a seamless ocean horizon line. I also love the story flow of the opening spread and the way it bleeds off the page at one side, yet contained on the other. The second spread with the puppy had me stumped for a bit. I didn’t want to interfere with the story flow, but I couldn’t find a photo that balanced out the black/white and color on the other page. This beautiful picture of this grey ball of fluff and striped blue couch blurred in the background was just what I needed to balance everything out. =)
