  1. I had to create a logo that would promote the video shop and encourage people to gain membership. I did it in "Serif page plus eight" and used clipart from the web and used a text wizard from "Serif page plus eight" to create the text for the logo.

    Obtaining the graphics was harder than I thought it would be. I had to go into MSWord and get the clipart graphics from the Internet. I had to make no modifications to the plan, because the task is so simple. Criteria for Success * Enable customers to set apart the video shop by means of this logo.

  2. The task is to create a logo that can promote the video shop, and be put on all to do with the video shop like letters. My logo should be simple but effective, and not to cheesy.

    * Convert to pictures, so that I can save the copy as a jpeg file, to save space and time loading the original file, and then copying it from there. I could produce the logo using a word processor. This is a limited, but simple way of doing the logo. It can do everything above, apart from edit pictures in the way that other programs can do. It can wrap text, and edit the brightness, but it cannot edit pictures in the most expert technique that I want, for example, fading different parts of the graphic, or overlapping objects.

  3. Researching upon designing a computer game's cover (box)

    was not environmentally friendly. The materials I researched were paper, cardboard, corrugated card and Plastic. I immediately ruled out the paper because it was too thin and so I concentrated on the other three. I was thinking of using corrugated card but found it would be too difficult to flat pack and could ruin its overall shape when bent. So I was left with the cardboard and plastic. These were the two main materials I had to choose out of so I looked at their properties.

  4. 'Produce a promotional package for a newly formed company'.

    Introduction to My Company My company is going to be based in the tourism industry, because I wanted to produce a project different to most other people in my class, and it was an area of industry I felt I would enjoy researching. I am going to begin a new hotel chain called Parker Hotels. I intend it to be a middle-of-the-range, overnight stay style of hotel, suitable for motorists on long journeys. It will be cheap and affordable, and yet I hope to have an excellent quality of service and good facilities to attract customers.

  5. Creating the logo - Software and Hardware

    The scanner I will use is a flatbed AGFA SNAPSCAN310. It is large enough to fit the daisies in, and the lid can be raised enough to fit the daisies, chain and paper under. It is capable of producing high quality images even if they are of 3D objects. However the lid of the scanner can easily damage the flowers and you can't see what the image will look like until you've scanned it. If I were to use a digital camera to take a picture of the flowers then this would not be a problem, but the scanner can alter things faster and I have found that the colour is often better when the scanner is used.

  6. Evaluation of 3D paper engineering project

    We have learnt how to make paper springs, and other mechanisms including the birthday box. We have honed our skills at cutting, colouring, mechanism construction, and accurate paper measuring. Our final products, were 4 cards, which each had a separate paper engineering mechanism in them. They were made out of card and paper, as well as plastic and thick card. All of the cards worked in the end, although we had to make some adjustments in the construction process. I wouldn't hire the company, because the quality is not good enough to be in shops.

  7. I have designed a logo that can be used so Cogan Coronation club can be easily recognised, but also to portray the club as a professional, efficient organisation.

    I thought the logo was lacking something so I put another piece of 'word art' onto the football stating when the club was established (1960) and finished it off with two small 'clipart' footballs that are situated either side of the main badge. I set the image control of the footballs to 'watermark', so that they wouldn't be too striking. DRAFT TWO: Although I had the main logo designed, I felt that subtle changes needed to be made in order to make it look slightly more professional.

  8. The logo for the British Heart Foundation uses only two colours, black and red. The red highlights the word 'Heart' and is used for the very clever graphic depicting what looks very much like the lines on an E.E.G running in the shape of a hear...

    The logo advertising MECCA Bingo immiediatley looks like fun. This has been achieved by the use of different bold colours for the capital letters and the smaller wavy lettering used in the word Bingo. The blocks around the capital letters remind you of the tiles used in some bingo games or the squares on the bingo card. The use of stars and the circle orbiting the word depicts great heights and the possibility of a big win! The white cloud behind the word bingo makes it look lighter and so makes bingo look like fun.

  10. The venture of which I am going to promote is Tamworth Town. Tamworth is not a very big town and not a lot of people know about it and its attractions.

    To make my attraction seem good I will have to display pictures of venues around the town and also of the attractions and facilities that the town has to offer. An alternative to a brochure could be a flier but I can not put as much information on a flier as a brochure as it can not be as big as brochure can be because a brochure can contain an unlimited amount of pages where as a flier is a double sided peace of coloured paper.

  11. Beeston Rylands Golf Course I.C.T. Cousework

    The entrance to the golf club is quite secluded from the main road that runs through Beeston. The population of Beeston is around fifteen thousand. Interview I interviewed Mr Ian Smith the owner of the golf club to try to find possible tasks: RP: Hello, are there any problems in particular with the current system that requires any immediate work? IS: Nothing in particular, but we are struggling with the current system of recording members. The current system is non-computerised. It is currently very slow and subject to errors by staff. We are looking to create a database form it.

  12. Designing a Logo

    Or as I found out kp_end, kp_5 and kp_pgup. When you let go of Alt... hey presto a � rite before your eyes. Then I just type the lex bit and underline it. And to make the Flex more pretty I made it red. So your finished product will be something like this �lex. See it looks pretty good and better then Tax and Bolt I assure you. The software I will use for my logos will be Microsoft paint and for my questionnaire I will use Microsoft word. And sir said to mention about windows and that so I think the computer I used was Windows 95.

  13. Sonoco trident, DPIA and Motar printing

    Here are some things you need too know in the printing sector of manufacture. Analogue - data stored in a continuous form. Digital - data processed using binary numbers (0 and 1) through on/off impulses. Scanner - an input device that digitises images, creating bit-mapped (those 1s and 0s again) copies that can be manipulated electronically. The graphics produced through the use of these applications can be divided into two primary groups or "graphic types," object oriented (vector) and bit-mapped (raster).

  14. DTP Assessment

    I will use a scanner to transfer real images into the computer. A scanner works when rays of light are reflected from the paper to a small camera that is sensitive to colours, and transmits all the colours in a data format to the computer. 3. A keyboard is the second most useful item, when you press a key; the keyboard gives a coded number (such as o11ooo11). The CPU receives that number and changes it into a letter (01100011=a), and I will use it to include writings into my database assignment.

  15. Project Evaluation: Comparing my Outputs to the Specification

    The Business Card I have produced a business card that meets all the requirements set out in my design specification. It * Looks professional * Contains the logo * Contains the name, address, postcode and website of the company * Has space for the employees name * Is striking and very bright, without being garish * Contains a short statement about what the company does. The card is only one sided and this was something that was said could be improved.

  16. Describe the document you will create using your ICT skills

    What have you learnt from your research? Were you able to draw any conclusions of your own? Did your research help you to design your own original work? Design Outline Design your document. Save this design. This can be done by hand or on the computer. You can add notes (annotate) to your design, explaining things such as * Where you will get the data * Which fonts you will use * Why you chose certain objects/design features. Remember you need to show consistent use of spaces, tabs, returns, format of numbers, graphics features such as line thickness and shading Implementation At this stage you can finalise your design and make your document.

  18. Graphic Design : Producing a Graphic Product

    of hours x hourly rate. E.g. 1 x �20 = �20 Materials - Coloured paper, etc, or designing E.g. �20 Sundries - Phone calls, faxes etc, E.g. �20 Offset lithography printing - 0.1 p per unit = �100 Total - �160 Cost per unit = o0.16. As I have used special colours and finishes for the examples stated here, the cost is a lot higher than it would be if I was using one basic colour design. Although the more I produce of a graphic product, the price goes up, the price for each individual unit is cheaper with the more I produce.

  19. To create a recruitment leaflet for my local squadron of the Air Training Corps (ATC)

    The most important thing is that I make it attractive to the target audience (13-14 year olds). To do this I will have to find out what sort of things, that link to the ATC, do the target audience like to see. The hardware used will include an inkjet colour printer, to print in colour, scanner, to scan pictures in, and a digital camera, to take pictures to place in Analyse I have spoken to the Commanding officer and he wishes to have a leaflet made so that extra cadets could be recruited. The leaflet should be easy to understand and be found attractive to the target audience of 13-14 year olds of either sex.
