Placards and Canards

These are my final placards, more than anything I enjoyed being able to break away from the aesthetic that I had been developing all semester long. I continued to explore something that I have been getting interesting results with (the photographing of a projected image) and the most compelling thing I was able to create was an image that looked like it could be an old photography plate by projecting onto a metal tray. I learned the importance of being able to think and generate quickly due to the time frame of this project, while I wish we had more time I'm happy with the results.
Additionally I am happy that we were able to cram in a new technology. While I have worked with flash before I have not for a few years and only on an even more rudimentary level than this. I could not think of a successful way to show my process on these and thought evolution, without taking hundreds of photos. So, I just thought it would be funny to show the folder that housed my flash work.

I have changed the type, and took out the extra icons. I kept the type size consistent because the icon and image sizes all vary. I still can't figure out how to upload the flash animations to my blog though.
