The below counts as your Attendance for Online Wednesday, Nov 11th (Also remember to be working on your Zine now there are deliberately less homeworks to give you extra time for creativity)
Tip of the day: Turn off checkmark for hyphenate in Indesign by Window>type>paragraph
- Research ‘Semiotics’. You can use the Olin library databases to read about the theories of Pierce, Saussure and Barthes and watch my ppt below OR this fun video (he does a good job – except he doesn’t mention Roland Barthes, dates etc): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0JtJu9HdQVM
PPT about the Theory of Semiotics.
- Create a GRID-based info-graphic in Indesign, (remind yourselves by re-watching the Grid ppt) that is a quick cheat-sheet guide to the Theory of Semiotics done in a creative visual way. (remind yourself how to use grids and guides in Indesign- try to experiment with the things you learned in the Indesign videos and tutorials) Examples below- but make it your own. You will be graded on creativity- so try to get the full 40 points by following all these directions, and doing it in a cool way! You get to decide how much information to include but always proofread- notice how the 3rd example has misspelled their names!
- Upload a *** Packaged zip file *** of the project to Onedrive – To reiterate, I need a Packaged folder that you create in Indesign. To zip the folder you compress it: https://support.apple.com/en-hk/guide/mac-help/mchlp2528/mac 40 points
