On November 1, 2016, in Week9, by Genevieve HItchings

This Tuesday we will finish the ‘Get Out the Vote’ poster campaign. In-class Critique: we will take a look at all the final posters. You will make any necessary FINAL edits in class.


  • Yuko Shimizu

Lesson – Photoshop – retouching – See lesson here: lesson-week9
-> Cropping and transforming (Photoshop)
-> Smart Objects – Illustrator into Photosop (Photoshop)
-> Adjustment layers – brightness and contrast (Photoshop)
-> Layer Mask – blending images (Photoshop)
-> We can also review anything covered to date and I hope to reserve some time to answer individual questions.

Lab Time
Please note the following:
1.  If your poster is far enough along I recommend bringing a color 11×17″ print of it with you to class. It is very important to test print your work – often there are a number of unhappy surprises the first time you print (especially with the color and type size and readability).


  • DUE: Posters
  • Research: Start to think about what you might do for project two based on in-class discussion
