Photoshop Project 6
Due Date: January 18

Instructions

Design a snack bag in Photoshop.

  1. START WITH AN IDEA
    1. Create a name for your snacky goodie.
    2. Decide what kind of treat it is: for example, potato chips, candies, pretzels, dried fruit?
    3. Decide who your target market is: for example, children, teens, young adults, cowboys, vegetarians, firefighters, space aliens?
    4. Think about the colors and typography will that appeal to your target market and that will inspire their appetite.
  2. SKETCH IT OUT
    1. Sketch out three or more design ideas as thumbnails before you even open Photoshop.
    2. Show the placement of people, product images, the product name, slogans, logos, other graphics, etc. in your sketches. Fine details are not necessary.
    3. Use colored pencils to test some color combinations (no markers!)
  3. GET SET UP
    1. Create a new folder in your username folder called "Lastname Project 6". (Be sure to replace "Lastname" with your actual last name.)
    2. Go get some large digital photographs and/or graphics to play with. Save them in your "Lastname Project 6" folder. Google images is your friend.
    3. Open the photographs in Photoshop.
  4. CREATE YOUR MASTERPIECE SNACK BAG
    Your Photoshop file must contain:
    1. Many layers, one layer for each piece of the overall design (text, photos, logo, painted areas, etc.)
    2. Text for the snack name and for slogans/reasons to buy.
    3. Photos or graphics that show what the snack looks like.
  5. TURN IN THE FILES
    Turn in the entire "Lastname Project 6" folder into the "Project 6" folder in the Inbox. I should see the following in your "Lastname Project 6" folder:
    1. the layered Photoshop file
    2. any source photos or graphics you used
  6. TURN IN THE ORIGINAL SKETCHES
    These go into the "In Box" on my desk. Make sure your name is on these!
