Slide Design Project

This purpose of this project is design an ad that match with the original ad that I've chosen as of it's from the same campaign. And to analysis and use my skills to create a slide to present it.  

I’ve designed this ad to match the Canon 5D Mark III campaign.

As you can see above, I've created this slide presentation. 

Targeted Audience

I've narrowed down my targeted audience to be those that love photography and would like a new professional DSLR camera. Canon 5D Mark III is a top and brand new professional DSLR camera.

Ad Design Analysis

Design: I've decided to use this picture below. Where it's full of life. The little girl jumping on the rocks represents the life that is alive, and worth capturing.

Typography: I used Ariel Black, a font that is similar to the font that the original ad used. Where it's a san serif, giving it a very clean and clear look without distractions, it also blends in, make the message clear, but put the focus on the picture itself. 

Color: I've used a picture with the same color theme - blue. Which gives people a peaceful, trust worthy, and happy feeling. Which represents the trust worthy about the brand and the camera, and a happy feeling about life. I also used white for the logo and the words. Which match the original ad, as well as simple, which brings the focus back to the picture itself, but the message still "pop." 

Slide Design Analysis 

Design: I've decided to use a blue design to cross the page with half white, and half blue, it creates a fun feeling, not so formal. 

Typography: I've used another san serif family font, where it matches the clean and clear look with the design.

Color: I used the blue and white combination, which match the design perfectly, easy to audiences' eyes. I also used a light brown background for the word "analysis," where audience can easily identify it's a page for analysis, but yet, it doesn't take over the focus. 

Conclusion

This is a great way to analysis, design, and present new designs. This is a great way to help me design and coordinate something together, where the color, designs, and typography all match as a whole. Analysis designs help me focus on the message behind a design, and in result, help me be a better designer. 

AT&T Global Coverage Design Analysis

This Reverse Engineer Project is to analyze a design's contrast, repetition, alignment, proximity and color; and to decide if it's a good design or not. The design is used by AT&T in their advertising campaign to showcase their good coverage across the world.

AT&T is an American multinational telecommunications conglomerate, and is the world largest telecommunications company. This design appears in their advertising campaign. And the purpose of the design is to show that they have coverage even in the most rare areas, including India. 


Analysis

Contrast

Contrast.jpg

There are a few contrast here. Including the use of grey for the elephants and a color carpet. Along with the grey elephants contrast with the orange background. The use of white color for the words contrast with the orange background is also another use of contrast in this design. 

Repetition

The most obvious repetition here are the elephants and the carpets, which is the exact same, except they are facing opposite way. There's also a small repetition with the AT&T logo on the phone. The words are actually part of repetition, where it's all the same font as well. 

Alignment

In this case, both the picture and the text have the same alignment, which is center. The picture is center, having the same space on the left side, and the right side, as well as up and down. And the text is align in the center above the picture. The phone itself is align in the very center and middle of the design, indicating what's important. 

Proximity

The design gives a really clear proximity. Including the words that is centered and away from the picture, and stand alone from everything. It gives audience a clear message of "Works in over 200 countries, like India." Even though we can see the elephants, but I also want to point out the space that makes the phone stands out, even though it's the same picture, definitely point out the message of phone service. 

Color

AT&T has its signature color of sky blue color. And this one is no exception. The design uses its signature color as the phone screen background, as well as its logo. And the main message "Works in over 200 countries, including India." is white, stand completely different than the background, or the picture. 

Conclusion

AT&T has done a great job at this design for its advertisement. A simple design that don't confuse audience, and send its message clearly. Its contrast is the key to stand out. Contrast from color, and contrast between picture and text. It makes its message clear by dividing its elements well. And using the right design, including the elephants which are made out of hands with the finger as its nose, in which represent the use of our phone. Overall, it's an amazing design.
