1. My first idea is to create a series of graphic designs using pets that have helped people through the pandemic. I would create 5-7 graphics for this project with each pet next to their owner. This engages my personal life because I adopted a pet bunny, Luna, this past summer who has helped me tremendously and made my life so much brighter.
I have done previous research on pet adoptions spiking during 2020, and have conducted interviews with employees from Philly PAWS and Almost Home Dog Rescue last semester. I would be using Adobe InDesign and/or Illustrator for this project. I would design something similar to the graphics below.
2. My second idea looks toward my possible future career as a news reporter. I would use 5-7 stories that I had published in the Hawk Newspaper and those would be inspiration to create a series of graphics that embody each story with quotes using typography and images. I would be using Adobe InDesign and/or Illustrator for this project. I would design something similar to the graphics below, but without using the entire story and more focus on typography.
3. My third idea is to expand on a previous project that I made. I created a graphic design about self-care tips while staying home during the spring semester of 2020. I would re-envision this by making a series of 5-7 graphics about mental health and coping mechanisms while being quarantined or feeling isolated from others. I would be using Adobe InDesign and/or Illustrator for this project. I would create something similar to the designs below.
