Assignment #2

Ew.   I certainly feel the need for some hand sanitizer.

There definitely seems to be a scare tactic here.  By collaging the photographs of hand touching things, we’re reminded of all the icky, germy items most of will have come across during our day. It’s relatable to most people.

Interest is created by placing the arm diagonally and the stark white background makes the arm and the product stand out while keeping things simple since the arm/hands have a lot going on visually.  The white could also represent  the idea of cleanliness promoted in the ad.

Assignment #1

Our first assignment was to create a piece of digital art using a program that it not normally used for art.  For this I used Excel, a program I had never used before.  After many failures with the shape tools I reduced the size of the grid so the each rectangle was small.  I filled in the palate with secondary colors and selected rectangles to fill white to create the shapes.  Then I added a stripe in its complimentary color.  This created a more minimalist style.  Although I included all three experiments the green one that I did first is my favorite.
