I was interested in using open source to create web pages.  The website I created is www.lumonlinemagazine.com

I took the source from this web page http://www.oswd.org/design/preview/id/3569

Typography Re-design July 28, 2008

Original Type

 
Original Logo

I choose B&H for re-design.  I decided to stay with the color theme. I took out the white and changed saturation.  B&H is a store that sells photo, audio and video equipment.  Since the company does not sell art but equipment I stayed away from “fancy type” and used Ariel.  I added vague strips to the letters to represent the 7 departments the store has.  I also changed the “&” as it looked wimpy being lowercase.  I wanted the letters to look strong so I kept them bold.  Strong would be what I expect out of my equipment not wimpy.  I also think the strips work better then the gradient.

City Atmospheres

The goal of this project was to create a body of work displaying urban landscape photography which focuses on cities within the United States.  The photographs are placed in Metro Denver, the Los Angeles area, and Manhattan.  Each city is uniquely planned out.  For example in Manhattan’s environment is tightly woven.  In Colorado the environment is spacious.  California is continually green.
