I made my slide with a image for the background, because it would capture the attention of the audience. I made sure the audience could look at it and grasp the meaning before they drew their attention back to the speaker (me). I wanted the slide to be simple, because when there is too much going on the audience can get confused. Also the simple picture describes me. In addition, my middle name is Rose and my favorite flower is a rose.
ScriptI made my slide look like this because I wanted lots of “empty space” like you showed us the website. I also kept the slide simple by not putting lots of pictures or words on it. Like what you told us I kept it visual instead of putting tons of words and information on. That way it is less complicated to look at and you get the gist of what it’s trying to say. For my slide it’s hard to understand unless I explain, but that was my point. So there was a reason for me to even speak. For the purpose of explaining who I am I put a grumpy cat meme on my slide to show I enjoy not only cats, but comedy too.
To reflect on this, In the second slide of this assignment I edited a few things of what I was given feed back on. I darkened the gray of the background and then lowered the font of "Creative" and connected the c with the r. There was not much I had to change, just very small details to appeal to the viewers. I just reflected on what I was told and tried my best to fix those small flaws and the product is shown below
I made the slide look the way it does because it easily expresses who I am. What influenced my decision making was what I enjoy and a quote that is all about me and my lifestyle. I was being careful evening out the slide neatly. The point of this was to describe who we are our interests and a lot more.
The point of this project was to describe your interests in a efficient way and grab peoples attention. My slide is a picture of airplanes cockpit. Airplanes have always been a big influence in my life. My dad is a pilot and since then being a pilot has always been my dream. I want to travel the world and follow the path of my father. While designing the slide I used an image that doesn't take long to interpret. I wanted to make my slide interesting so I decided to make my image fade off the paper. I enjoyed this project and it taught me any things about presenting and advertising.
After this unit I learned how to design slides and make them interesting but simple. By using colorful images and bold letters my reader can now what is going on in my slide. On my new slide I took out one word and added color contrast to the background of my name. Ms.Hull set us up for failure because she did not tell us what to do with specific details or giving us specific details on how to design a slide.
For this project in technology class, my classmates and I had to design a slide all about us. With that slide we had to use methods of making a slide the best as possible as we had learned in previous lessons. That meant leaving some space, writing in large font, make it colorful and to use bleeding to make the slide strong. Using these methods I came up with this slide to represent me.
This presentation shows a example of glance media. There is one picture of the United Nations and my name. By there a reader would automatically understand my message with just one glimpse. There are only two words on the slide, “Gabrielle” and “Kreidie”, my name. This allows the reader to not have to read through a whole lot of words, only stare at the picture. The reader automatically gets the picture/idea. I was not being a wimp throughout this slide, I made things big. I made the slide colorful and I made the picture turned a bit showing a more flow in the wind of the flag. I allowed the picture to be bled, one did not have to see the entire pole from which the flag was flying across. There was some clear space around the flag not allowing the flag to take up the whole slide. This presentation, as I said earlier, shows the reader the ultimate message: I, Gabrielle Kreidie, have a admiration and love for the United Nations.
I created my slide this way because reading in general has influenced me greatly. I used this image to represent my passion for books. I formatted my slide this way so that it is visually appealing, eye catching, but also informs you about me. I tried to make the slide visual, focused on the meaning of my slide, and made sure is understood by just one glance.I strived to have my slide meet the criteria need. Which were, Color, which is the very first thing people will notice. Size, Shape, Texture, Value, Contrast, and Emptiness.
My slide represents my love of music, especially The Beatles and other oldies bands, and also my fascination with beetles and other insects. In the middle of the slide, is a quote from one of my favorite Beatles songs, that represents something I value.
The composition of my slide consists of decisions I made about the type, contrast, color, visuals, space, theme, and organization of the images. I knew which images I wanted to incorporate in my slide, and my main focus was to arrange them creatively, while also following the rules of composition. I chose a black and white Beatles image, and decided to tilt it on one side. This was mainly because I thought it was more creative than having it right side up, and because I didn’t think that you needed to see the image clearly to recognize who they are. Also, I didn’t want to have “floating images,” and I wanted to leave some space on the slide, so I pushed the image to the right side. I wanted to represent a single theme in my slide, so I decided to play on the word “beetle” and show the other side of what that word meant to me. I incorporated my fascination with beetles. I chose to put the images of the beetles on the left side of my slide, to balance the placement of the images, and to show more clearly the nature of the opposite meanings, but similar sounding words. There were no more images that I wanted to add, so I left it as it is. I thought of adding more, but decided not to, because I didn’t want to cram the space and give less attention to the images, individually. My last step was to add the text. I put the text in the middle, balancing the placement of all the pieces, while also following the rule of thirds. I chose the text size in the slide, because I wanted it to stand out, but not overpower the images. Originally, the text was black, the images were black and white, and the background was white, but I realized that I didn’t include any color in my slide, so it wasn’t very eye catching. When I thought about where I should add the color, I decided to add it to the text, because it contrasted between the color of the text and the color of the images, and the actual piece of text and image. The color I chose is orange, because orange is my favorite color, and it creates a visually appealing color scheme. I arranged the orange box, with the quote inside it, in the middle of the slide. Vertically, I placed it directly over Paul and Ringo’s heads, lining up with the ends of their heads. This creates an even and balanced composition throughout the slide.
Su tiempo de Navidad. Esto significa que las grandes empresas harán más cosas y los precios subirán. Para la gente de Venezuela, que no saben cuánto más las cosas van a costar o cuántas cosas el gobierno dejará que las hacen. Muchos juguetes y regalos se hacen en fábricas. Quieren controlar cuánto las empresas pueden hacer para asegurarse de que no se están volviendo demasiado poderosos y tener demasiado dinero. A veces es muy difícil saber hasta qué punto una empresa puede hacer, especialmente durante esta temporada. Más a menudo entonces no, la gente que hace cosas para las grandes empresas en las fábricas no hacen mucho dinero para volver a casa y apoyar a sus parejas, hijos, u otras personas en su familia.
I put this because I was given this name in SLA because of my eating habits but I think that goats have personality trait that are similar to mine. Goat are intelligent and curious, they are also independent and stubborn. Mountain goats adapt to the climate and can survive on sparse food in rough and dangerous terrain.
This is my slide. [show slide and allow five seconds before starting] Think aloud. Just a quick background on what this means in reference to me: I’ve always been a performance-based person in a lot of different ways, which is implied by the retro microphone and the lights, but it also tells the viewer that I’m outgoing and I speak up without hesitation. As we’ve already learned for our projects, good signage has to be noticeable, understandable, memorable and influential, and that was the rubric I used to create this slide. I paid attention to specific elements such as alignment, proximity, contrast, and color.
First, the text. I made it white to contrast against the blurred and generally sepia colored background. Since the eye is traditionally lazy and is attracted to blank, empty space, I wanted the first thing that the viewer saw to be the words, think aloud, and then to the picture behind it. I made the letters evenly spaced and aligned perfectly horizontally so that it would not appear messy or confusing in any way. Very simple and neat.
Now, the image. I edited a photograph from the Internet to make it slightly more old-fashioned and hazy and to make it my own. I also didn’t want it to be distracting with too many clear, dark lines that would take away from the message. It’s extremely important that when creating glance media, everything is very obvious and only takes a moment to digest. I also wanted to make it memorable, so that it wasn’t a single word, a verb, a noun or anything along those lines. I wanted it to be unique, so I decided to make it an action/suggestion. Not only this, but it was very important that it inspired the viewer to do something, and I hope that the viewer is inspired to think aloud. This means that the viewer should not be afraid to share their ideas and thoughts with those around them. It’s a motivator!
Those are all of the glance media tactics I used to create my slide. Thank you!
