VISUAL PUNS CRITIQUE GRAPHIC DESIGN 2012-2013 MS. SCUDDER CRITIQUE 1. Did you/your classmate comprehend what a pun is? 2. Did you/your classmate express the pun successfully through imagery? 3. Did you/your classmate create a seamless integration of images? 4. Did you/your classmate add personality to the visual puns? 5. Do you have any additional comments? What are some strengths in the piece? What could be done better or a different way? NEXT STEPS: DUE THURSDAY Add text to your compositions. 1. Choose at least one of your three visual puns that you think would benefit from adding text. You may be subtle about the size/placement of the text, or you may choose to make the text obvious. Play with colors, fonts, sizes, and placement on the page. 2. Create a new composition that illustrates a visual IDIOM (different than a pun). A visual idiom is the literal depiction of a phrase that is usually used as a metaphor. Some examples of phrases that would work well as visual idioms are “give me a hand” or “lend me your ears.” This composition should include a composite image as well as text. HOMEWORK: DUE THURSDAY Artist Statement: Write a brief artist statement about your three visual puns and your one visual idiom. It should include: 1. Elements of design that you used (line, shape, color, mass, texture, imagery, or text) 2. Methods/techniques you used (what specific Photoshop tools did you use? What skills did you rely on?) 3. Your intentions or any meaning behind each piece. 4. What you hope the viewer will get out of each piece.
