I thought this would be interesting to share this. This remind me of when I started Typography 1 class with Jennifer. Our 1st assignment was to create an image of yourself or an image of a person out of time. I thought this was a clever way using  letters. To me, when I did the first exercise I never knew it would be possible. You never know how creative you could be with letters. I saw this on the internet because I wanted to see how far we could go with typography.I think this style is very modern, contemporary design. It attracted me because it is a well design and very creative.

I try to check out new graphic design posters, advertisement anything that is out there. This is the website I found this image from that really interested me. It might not be the best but it is really good to do research everyday to be inspired and to learn NEW design styles everyday.

This is a image of Palmolive dish washing soap. Its function is to clean your dishes also leave your hands very smooth and soft. It has a touch of vitamin E that makes your hands so so soft. It really works. You could see this anywhere in grocery stores. The style of design would be Postmodern or todays style. The typography is well balanced for the theme of the product. You could tell by the emphasis on the bottle it self. I think the artwork is very functional, clean, to me feminine without being insulting and simple.    I am sure it attracted many woman or whom ever wants their hand very soft after washing dish in HOT water leaving their hand rough.

What you see right here is the 1st Galaxy S Samsung smart phone.Its function is to call people, surface the web, anything smart phones now a days do today. Oh I am not into technology so dont ask any questions. I always wanted this phone since it came out but now have the urge to change it to the NEW Galaxy S 2 ! I would always see it in commercials and that is how I saw this. I feel the style design is Post Modern or digital whatever it is because the new features it has. I love the typography because of its futuristic features it has. Its sharp looking, edgy, and very modern. It attracted me since it came out so I just bought  it but something that is bad about this, is sometimes the phone freezes on you occasionally.

What it is? This a Bed Head brand name hairspray for men. Its function is to keep your hairstyle apparently steady, perfect, and smelling good. What I don't like about this product, it leaves white flakes in hair after a while. I first saw it in Jcpenny's salon then I bought it. My hairstylist said the brand it really good so I thought to try the hairspray out. What attracted me also to this product it the grungy feel to this bottle.   I feel like it is a bad boy spray, just like what you see in the AXE commercials. I really like the design of the product, it is simple, straight forward which you know who the product is for, and on the bottom it has clean typography. I might be wrong but I think the typography that is on the bottom might be Univers or Futura medium. There is really not that much of an artist look to but the grungy big B that it has on the bottle.

Envelopes worlds good creations. These are security tinted envelops. Its function is to mail your bills, whatever you put things in an envelop. Everyone sees all types of envelops: big, small, yellow you name it. I think the type of style of design this product fits in is Contemporary and the typography is modern, clean, simple. I think the typeface might be Helvetica. Mostly everything has this typeface, it's the default of everything. The artwork is simple, contemporary, functional. What attracted me to this was because we talked about contemporary era during class  and new modern products are developed everyday.

This is Sour Punch Twists and they are sour straws candy. Of course its function is to eat them, but not a whole so you wont see the dentist for a toothache. I saw this first with one of my friends who was sharing them while I was in class. I really like them and bought them. The style of the package or design reminds me of Psychedelia Era because of its crazy colors, lines, and it really stands out when you see it in stores. The typeface fits its theme, yet very modern and easier to read then some Psychedelia fonts. This is more of a modern approach. I like the word PUNCH because it is emphasized well. It really has a punch once you have more then one for sure. I think the artwork is playful, attracting, and illustrated well. What attracted me was fisrt it was candy and because I really like bright funky colors last but not least the design is not written across the package but titled on a angle in my opinion.

 This image is a brand name Volcom backpack whatever you want to call it. Its functions is to carry your books in side and also carry your skateboard on the side of the bag. Its more of a punkish look. I saw it in Sun Pacific whatever the store is called in the mall we have in Champaign. I really like the design of the bag because of its colors, the way how typography is placed on the backpack. I went through a phase where I wanted to be a punkish and carry but never happened. The type of style I think it fits it might be psychedelia but I might be wrong. I think the artwork quality stands out. It is well known bag and very expansive back when I bought it. And yes it is a boys bag but who cares these days. It attracted me so I had to buy it, I was going to use it anyway for school so I said why not.

This is an envelop form DHL Global Mail. Okay I am really not sure what this company or thing is about but the function is an envelop. Inside as I read has some type of advertisement lowering your mortgage. This is from my understanding but I saw this in the mail. I really like the design of this it reminds me of Swiss International because of its grid system. Now I am not saying it is from the era but it feel like it has a grid. Everything is aligned and balanced. I think the artwork or the colors is ugly! It has a McDonald s feeling to it. The reason it attracted me because I wanted to see what the hell it was, and the design it came in.

The function of the is dental flossers for PLACERS! This is fast and easy to carry with you to floss when you have something stuck between your teeth. It is very minty and surly freshens hot breath. I think the style of design the package reminds of if American Kitsch because of the shape of the floss and the typography. By looking at the artwork quality seems to stand out because of the heading of the product. My sister is a dental hygienist and always talks about flossing, always scarring me about having to much plack between your teeth and made me want to carry some with me whenever it is needed. That is how it attracted me.

This is a package of a Mexican chicken seasoning, which is amazing! Its function is to make your chicken taste great and of  course season your chicken well. I always shop at Peters Market in Chicago and that is where I first saw this product. Its design reminds me of Art Nouveau but it a modern way. The reason why it because of the typeface and the whole look to it. I am not saying it is Art Nouveau but it just reminds me of it. I know that era has a lot of decorative embalishments. The artwork is illustrated where as if you didn't read, you would know the function of the product it is. The color complements with each other. The design together makes you sense the smell of Mexican seasoning. It attracted me because I like new seasoning taste to different cultural backgrounds.

Fanta logo

This is the before and after logo for Fanta soda. Its function is to people to drink this tangy orange soda.I really like the logo it makes you want to drink it on a summer hot day. I think they did a great job designing this package. So I was looking around trying to find the typeface out, and it was really hard so this is the best I got finding the type and this link this or but is really hard because it is an abstract font. This attracted me because I am the type who like to see new logos and how they were before. I like to explore new designs and become inspired by them.

Rice Krispies TREATS!

I was really craving for a snack during my typography class so I went to the cafeteria to get a snack and I remember as a kid I would always eat this so I want to post this on my blog but anyway this is a product where you EAT! It is very good but sorry to say very fattening. Some people use this to eat and some use it to sculpt things out of it for cakes or other wired things I really don't want to know. I really like the design that created for this package because that made space for you to write on the treats or make it into a reminder that you need to stop eating this because it has a lot of calories in it. I know is a cheesy idea but it is clever because people really have the time to write little notes on a treat that you are going to eat and throw the package away. I was searching for the typeface for this product and I think it is Futura Condensed Bold. I was attracted to this because I needed a snack.

Yellow Pages Logo

This is another before and after logos for Yellow Pages (Phone Book). Its function is for people to find address, phone numbers, or any businesses you need to find. Yellow pages are locally or depends on the area you are at. I think this book is every useful and has very useful information. For example, if u need to get a hold of the plumber after a huge party in your house LOL or print shop to get your art work printed for your portfolio. It is cool how they change the logo, and this website shows how the collected their information and changed the logo. Everyone should check it out because you would never believe that yellow thing came form a shape of a rock. This is the website:
I think they did an amazing job creating the logo much cleaner and modern. I was researching this on the website it said they used Franklin Gothic typeface. This attracted me because I actually had to use a phone book and I know it is out dated to use a book but I was around me so why not. Like I mentioned before I love to explore new logos because it always inspires me to create a unique one for me.

Game Design

This is a PlayStation 2 Grand Theft Auto 2 game. Its function is to play this game by completing missions I guess in this game.( I don't know how to play it but I like rubbing cars in the GAME NOW and driving) I know we have talked about What graphic design is and I have taken a picture of the video game package because a graphic designer had to design cause we are KNOWN as commercial artists. I like the design of this cover it really shows what the game is about and the typography fits the theme of the game. The artwork it self attracted and once in a while I like to play this game when I am bored.
