Creating the logo - Software and Hardware
Creating the logo- Software and Hardware To create the logo I have decided to use the scanner to get the image of the daisies and then alter this image using 'Adobe Photo Deluxe.' I could have used the scanner program, which also allows me to manipulate the image, but it has fewer features. Adobe will allow me to save the image, alter it, and go back to the saved version if the results are unsuccessful. It allows me to change my original image in many ways including resizing, changing the colour of my image, change the background and using a large range of special effects. It is the most advanced of the software I have at home and with other graphics programs it is often difficult to use a photo or scanned image. Adobe is specially designed for altering images of this type and I am also quite used to using it. Using Adobe will save a lot of time that I could have spent trying to work out how to alter a scanned image in a graphics program. 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
Describe the document you will create using your ICT skills
Project Outline Describe the document you will create using your ICT skills. It is really important to make the purpose of your document clear, and describe where/when it will be used and who will be your audience. Research / Background Information Describe the steps that you took to collect information from both IT and non-IT sources for your document. Remember to say why the information that you have collected is relevant to your project (Is it fit for it's purpose, suitable for your intended audience?) 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. Try out at least two different arrangements of the text, images and numbers. Save these drafts. Choose the layout you prefer giving reasons for your choice.

Promotional car brochure stand for a car company.
Specification I have to design a temporary promotional car brochure stand for a car company. There are many important features that need to be included in the design. > Needs to attract the attention of potential customers because otherwise they might go to a rival and purchase off them. I will do this by using vibrant colours that stand out like black & yellow, or black & sliver; this can make the stand look expensive. > The stand will also have to with stand testing of dropping brochures into the stand and any other ware 'an' tare that might occur. This is because people may put back brochures and they don't care if they drop them in so it has to with stand the tests. The brochure stand that I will produce will be sturdy and not cheap, otherwise it won't attract customers. > The brochure stand is an important feature to the car market as it can help sell the brochures so that there are more potential customers. Therefore the design must be aesthetically pleasing. > I will use the information I get from my questionnaires to develop my ideas to create the best idea for my final design. > Must be made of suitable material because there would be no point making it out of Titanium when it would look as good and cost less with aluminium that can also be recycled. > Should be a seasonable size because if its too tall people wouldn't be able to reach it and too small and
Life Cycle of a Product
life cycle of a product introduction At this stage, the product is designed, manufactured and brought into the market. The product's initial sales will be slow until the company builds an awareness of the product to potential customers, and this is when the introduction stage closes. In an example of a book, the introduction stage will involve creating, editing and publishing the book, and printing the books initial orders to be sent to book shops. growth At this stage, after completing the introduction phase, the product will begin to come into its own in the market scene. This is the peak time for profit to be made, because as the demand increases, the production increases which therefore leads to lower cost per unit. Advertising campaigns are usually introduced around this time, attracting new and/or wider target markets. Every company wants this stage of a product's life as long as possible. In the example of a book, this is the stage where news has spread about the novel, and copies are beginning to sell at an increasingly fast pace. The book at this point may win awards or be reviewed which should spark interest further. maturity At the maturity stage, sales growth has reached its peak and started to slow and is approaching the point where the inevitable decline will begin. Competitors may begin to have the advantage forcing the company to lower prices,
ICT - system outputs
System Outputs What are the advantages and disadvantages of using each output device for EACH of your subsystems? SUB-SYSTEM 1 Logo Monitor (TFT and CRT) Printer (Laser and Inkjet) An image used to represent the company created using computer software. It can be given a more professional edge by using effects and tools. Makes the company easy to identify and remember. Advantages of using this device for a Logo You are able to see what you are doing, without one; a computer would be a mere typewriter. This is very important because you can see the effects of the tools and what the created logo looks like at all stages of the making. Laser printers do not smudge after printing and are faster than their inkjet counterparts. It allows us to quickly and easily transfer identical images onto paper. It is neater and simpler than redrawing the logo repeatedly. Disadvantages of using this device for a Logo CRT can burn the inside of the screen if it gets hot enough. A colour on screen may look different to the one printed. Laser printers are very bulky and expensive. Printers run out of ink, so a malfunction could occur in which the logo comes out in a different colour or tone to the one desired, thus changing the connotations of logo. Which output device would be better to use for this sub-system? The best out-put device for a logo, is the one already in use, a
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.
General Overview 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. This task was predominantly easy; all it involved was creating a logo from text and clipart. It went well because it was particularly easy to do, and it did not contain any hard work or complicated things to do. 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. It enables customers to set apart this video shop by the logo, because it is a unique logo, to which no other video shop has access. This enables the customer to recognise Mercury Entertainment by the logo, and also informs and makes the customer know about us sub-consciously, so that they will know us and trust us when they come to rent from Mercury Entertainment. * Be easy to replicate, so that I can put it on the material quickly. It is easy to replicate, because it is in a separate file as a picture on its own, so any program that I use can easily import the picture, rather than having to open
Create a system that lets you find plants that fit certain height, width and light requirements.
Design Task 5 Task 5 is to create a system that lets you find plants that fit certain height, width and light requirements. The system must be easy to use. The software that I can use to create this particular system is Microsoft Access and Microsoft Excel but Microsoft Access is better and more sufficient to use because it allows you to create Forms, Queries, Reports, and Macros, whereas Microsoft Excel doesn't have any features to allow you to do these particular tasks. To do the task, first of all I will have to do the query, which will include the fields: * Common name * Maximum height * Maximum width * Flowering period After doing the query I will then have to design the report, which will have the details of the plants that grow in particular light conditions. Then I will have to do the form and the macro. All this can be done on Microsoft Access and it cannot be done on Microsoft Excel, so this is the reason why I have chosen to do the task on Microsoft Access rather than on Microsoft Excel. To do the query first of all I will have to go to the file "plant data" open it up and design the query using the fields Common Name, Max Height, Max Width, Flowering Period and Light Needed. These fields are already fixed in onto the computer. After this I will also have to do the macro which will be done by first of all going onto the macro file and then the action
Evaluation - produce proposals for the possible re-branding of my school
Evaluation My design brief was to produce proposals for the possible re-branding of my school. When doing this I researched what the faculties wanted and needed and so I designed a questionnaire to gather the information I required. I also researched different graphic designers, their work and various design movements throughout history such as Abram Games who is a British mid-twentieth century designer and official war artist during world war two. His style of design is very patriotic as in most of his work he uses red, white and blue; the colours of the union jack. He incorporates them very well and subtlety. I like his work because it's very classic, memorable and simple. His work is landmark. I did this because it gave me inspiration, an influence and it offered a look at how previous designers worked. I did web searches on the images connected to different faculties and just asked people what images came to mind when I said a faculty name this provided me with many logo ideas. In addition I looked at existing logo designs in books wherein designers explored many different techniques, which I could use in my designs. I had many specifications that determined what my final design would look like. * Such as my target group, which was the staff, pupils and parents because of this I had to select designs that satisfy and do not displease them. * In my specification I
'We cannot care enough about Pip to fully sympathise with him.' Do you think this is true?
My Final Logo Design:- Before designing my final logo I thought about what would be important on a logo for a travel company. I found out that most of the top travel company's logos of today are aeroplane orientated. Also a lot are brightly coloured. I carefully chose the font I wanted to use for the 'Corporate Dayz' lettering, I chose 'Wide Latin'. I loaded up Paint and chose two pictures from clipart and copied them onto paint. After I had chosen my pictures I wrote out Corporate Dayz in 'Wide Latin' and changed the colour of the words to red. I then copied two pictures from clipart and pasted them onto 'paint'. I then pieced the whole together and then saved it onto the memory. When I need a logo I copy and paste this logo onto my letterhead. Corey Glendining
First of all we would like to outline all the main problems that were seen at the corporate identity of the Allied Irish Bank
Marketing of Financial Services Allied Irish Banks May 10, 2007 First of all we would like to outline all the main problems that were seen at the corporate identity of the Allied Irish Bank. There were a few problems in the corporate identity of the company such as the workers were not playing in the same team, the name of the company was not always an advantage to be used, the logo of the company and the color was not the best choice either, problems were arising from the cultural differences and the company building was not looking the way it should. There were internal conflicts at the company and the workers were not playing in the same team. Workers were from different cultures and companies and they were not getting along with each other for this reason. This was very bad for the company because the least the workers should do is to get along with each other. An other problem was that for the same reasons, the head offices and the branches were not getting along with each other either. In this situation it is impossible to run a profitable business. 'The workers were not playing in the same team' meaning that they did not help each other's jobs, but instead made it harder for the other to do what he is suppose to do. There were problems with the name of the company as well. The parent company is called Allied Irish Banks PLC, and the principal operating
