Determine what media or digital output you intend on using for this narrative based project. You have the option of making this narrative linear (time-based i.e. video) or non-linear (i.e. interactive). What technologies will you utilize? i.e. processing, After Effects, Final Cut Pro, iMovie, Flash, animated gifs, etc…
- After Effects
Color can be an effective way to convey differentiation. What is your intended color palette? Please explain what each color signifies and/or the variable it represents.
- I’ve notice these colors appear a lot with religions. Gold (Gold is a pretty but resilient metal), green (common in Islam, Hinduism, Pagan (lot of time it represents earth color)), blue (seen in Christianity, Judaism (calming color))
List the typefaces that you will incorporate within your visualization. Keep in mind, typography is not required. Make sure that you choose typefaces that marry well with one another.
- Monotype Corsiva
It is essential to recognize the hierarchy of importance within your composition. What is the first element you want people to see when they look at your composition? Determine in a chronological order, where the visual hierarchy begins and ends. In other words, you need to reference the most important element all the way down to the least important element. You can use color, contrast, grouping of elements, scale, and type treatment to control visual hierarchy.
First thing you need to ask yourself is…are graphic elements really necessary? Keep it simple and remember – less is always more. Make sure your content is legible and easy to understand. Do not over-accessorize this project. If you are certain that additional visual aids are needed, determine if your graphic elements will be represented as illustrations, photographs, icons, vector, or RGB. Please provide a comprehensive detail of what graphic elements you plan on incorporating in your project.
Include 15-20 thumbnail sketches of your various layout options. These thumbnail sketches will include all the design elements listed above. You will use these thumbnails to help develop your storyboard.
