Graphic Design at Don Ross
What is board design?
Board Design is a Graphic Design Project where you, the student are required to design graphics for your skis, snowboard, surfboard, etc. Then create a mock company and company name. Design a logo for the company for your target market.
In Adobe Illustrator we learn how to use clipping masks, manipulate text and anchors. We need to play close attention to colours and cutting edge design if we want to be able to sell to our target market.

What is the Face assignment?
Students were required to create a face using specific tools on Adobe Illustrator. They learned how to use a clipping mask, for the eyes and different brushes for the eyelashes, eyebrows and in some cases, for the hair. Most importantly they learned how to use the gradient mesh tool to add shading beneath the eyes and mouth. The gradient mesh tool is also used to add a shine to the lips.

What is “Pig On A Page?”
Pig On A Page is an assignment based around making a pig version of a creature, a character/person, or really just anything that they can think inside the world of school appropriateness. In this assignment they practice using previously learned skills, such as using the pen and ellipse tools; they also learn new skills, such as tracing on a locked layer, and how to import and view images in illustrator.
