Friday March 3rd : Thinking about Geofilters

We are about to finish up the Word Unit. Next week we will complete the Quarter Portfolio Reflection and I will grade your portfolios & conference with you after the 14th.
What is your favorite piece you made during the Word Unit?

3rd hour

New work: Snapchat Geofilter

Target: I feel confident creating designs in Adobe Illustrator.
Target: My work communicates an idea to an audience because I have made good choices with the elements and principles.

Where do you go where you WISH there was a Geofilter?
Or, where do you frequently go? Someplace that is important to you.

Look up examples of filters you like. Look up examples of Illustrator designs/illustrations.

Eventually we will create a geofilter you can actually submit to Snapchat.

We will:
Create simple images and designs in Illustrator. *shape demo
Create text to include a word (like CGHS or Cary or Chicago) *text demo
MUST have original designs (no logos or trademarked images) *share demo
TRY Illustrator brushes

If you want to actually try to submit yours to Snapchat, we can do that!

We have had several CG VAT students designs approved and in use by Snapchatters... in fact, all Cary & CGHS filters were made by VAT students or former CG Art students.

After we realized there was only one available to Cary... (made by a former CG Art student :)
