For this project students were tasked with recreating a single print image, based upon the specific requirements and a set of inspiration pictures (you can find the entire project description and links here).
Sort of like the EdCamp Express Logo Project, this project was also one that had a purpose: I have a relative who was looking to get a print done of the above content, and I told her this would be the perfect project for my computer graphics students, because it would really challenge them to be creative, use a bunch of different elements in Photoshop or Pixlr, and create the desired image print while pulling together all of their skills and computer graphics knowledge.
Students were left in the dark (at first) as to what their print was going to be used for, other than that it was for "someone" and needed to include all of the above requirements.
I really love how each of these prints turned out, and especially how vastly different (yet similar!) they all area. They definitely combined all of the elements required, but had their own personal touch put in by the student who designed them, which is very much what graphic design is all about. Enjoy looking over these prints...I sure did, and wish I could be in some of them right now!
