Project 4 Draft

Ok so I am moving a few things around and playing with fonts. It is appearing quite small but when printed and blown up on a 22 x28 poster board everything will appear normal. I see a few things i want to move around font wise.

In the range box “Whats your craving?” I want to put a stack of sticky notes and have viewers take one and write their cravings. Below in the green block “Replace your craving” I want to have the viewers place their cravings on the left side and I will have a list of “replacement foods” they should take in order to know what to eat more of.

I also have tiny take away cards that have a list of foods to buy as a healthy start next time they grocery shop and try eating healthy!

Module 9-12

I finally am getting this blog to work. I have not been able to access much during the move. So far I have this pretty much done. I am working on printing and putting the excel graphs together this week. I am hoping to have it done by thursday and have a group view it by saturday. I plan on printing on hard stock and making a display.

Module 12

Full Outline

Title: “You are what you eat”

Definition of topic: “How does food affect toddlers in the United States?”

Graph 1: with preservatives verses without preservatives ……learning vs dyes and preservatives.

Diagram 2: Symptoms to food dye verses no dye

Common symptoms of food-dye-related behavioral problems are:
  • Hyperactivity.
  • Inability to Concentrate.
  • Learning Disabilities.
  • Insomnia (Which Contributes to Poor Behavior)
  • Aggressive Behavior.
  • Irritability.
  • Tantrums/Meltdowns.
  • Frequent Crying Spells.

No Dye:

 

Chart 3:symptoms of food dyes vs no dyes

Schematics 4: Health disorders vs dye & Preservatives

Quantitative data 5: Behaviors vs dyes and preservatives

Call to action: For one month try giving your kids preservative free/ dye free foods. A list of healthy options will be on a “take with me card”

Module 9

Ok my WordPress is not loading tonight but here is what I have written in the site. Ill link it when it saves. I changed my subject last week because this one was more interesting ha.

I was initially going to conduct research on speech therapy in children but then decided to do another topic last minutes because of some recent events with my kids. They have never had allergies (beside dairy) and recently have become allergic to anything with preservatives and dyes. While it is not uncommon I have noticed an increased difference in their behaviors at home regarding their tantrums.

Let me remind you they are 13 months apart at ages 3 and 2 (and then a newborn). So I found it great to do more research on diet in young children and see if introducing new (old foods they used to eat) into their diets would increase the tantrums or not.

We are actually normally really healthy eaters because my husband and I come from homes like that. My family is all diabetic and watching what you eat was a must.

I want to base my research on the following things to compare:

Preservative free food

dye free/ dyes

Foods containing preservatives

Allegies, behaviors and Disorders will play into each one i will compare as well. I remember reading a long time ago that the type of foods you eat affected certain disorders more than usual, attitudes, and allergies as well.

So far I have stumbled upon the site “fiengolddiet.org” and found an immense amount of research I will be applying to my own children ash well as the kids in my ward whose mothers volunteered to try this “food experiment” out for me.

Reflection 10

This week was seen with a lot of progress I feel like. I was able to see the difference that came from utilizing ads on my campaign. I used keywords and saw through the ads I could change the keywords that were not performing well enough.

I also found that it would be a great idea to create a few ads and direct them to the same site but to make sure that each of the ads were worded differently to direct to something different on the site and see if the site drives traffic in different directions.

Goals:

-create ads for my real business and see if what I have learned implements in a positive way

-try different ads such as Facebook, pinterest and google

-optimize SEO on keywords and meta keywords

-design a few printable and logo mockups

This week I am really pushing seeing a difference in traffic and clients for printables

 

Project 3 Drafts

Sorry for the side views. I am not quite sure how to change that. I have been in and out this week with kids that have croup  coughs and flu. (Yay mom life). But here are the drafts that I am turning into wire frames this week. I want to create a fun lego logo that maybe creates a picture?

img_0559

My idea for the scale might not make sense right now because I am not sure how to explain it. I want to scale it in a group of people,  have them use different colors, shapes and sizes and stack them as high as they can on the edges. Then see how  many the use to get a certain hight before they tip? Maybe that is not a good way to scale? Thoughts?

I thought within the app it would be fun to represent different colors and shapes of logos I will be using in the project to have information appear to the side of each that discusses different things regarding the legos, the projects steps, etc.

Its pretty rough drafted out sorry about that. But I plan to have wire frames and something drawn up on invision or another prototype app within the next day to have more feedback.

Project two mock up tweak

This project has been so hard to wrap my head around this week. Between the kids all getting the flu again this month and trying to visually make this look appealing, I am at loss what else to do. I also don’t appreciate doing so much math to figure all these statistics for it. But it did make me cry a little to see how much we spend a month for our kids in formula.

The indesign process book will be uploaded shortly I just wanted to post this now.

MOCK UP 2

MOCKUP 3formula-2-01

I am just now realizing that the below note in the directions possible meant three totally different mock ups? perhaps adding one page of 100 bottles?

Note: Image A will contain 2-3 different ways to visualize
100 of your item. Image B will also contain 2-3
different ways to visualize 100 of that item. And Image
C will contain 2-3 different ways to visualize 100 of
that item.

This week I asked friends to review the one mock up above. As I asked each person someone would add in another style point in colors, fading, font choices, and placement. I am still a little unsure with the final choice because I almost want to add some sort of image on the back and do a similar transparency to give it more of a style.

Insights I gained this week included working with fonts. I feel like when it comes to pairing different fonts it is really out of my comfort zone. So even though it is not my choice in style it is something that will possible allow me to improve thinking outside the box more often in design.

Project 2 Brainstorming

This last week we worked on a list of things that would be represented in 100 items. For this project I went throughout my house and wrote down items I saw laying around in the rooms, pantry and car. (Don’t ask about the car, I have toddlers.)

  1. Pencils
  2. crayons
  3. goldfish
  4. racecars
  5. puzzels
  6. Macaroni
  7. children books
  8. Paper clips
  9. thumbtacks
  10. pennies
  11. pretzels
  12. paper
  13. bobby pins
  14. diapers
  15. baby formula
  16. dolls
  17. blankets
  18. rocks
  19. paint
  20. holsters
Ideas:
I had first though it would be very interesting to make an ISPY poster and have 100 things represented within one poster you would have to look for. But was not sure if that would work? Thoughts?
The other Ideas was to pick a couple themes (baby or household related) and fan out the “essentials for cooking” or “essentials for baby” and organize each by stages and ages.
