For this image, I chose the topic of “Typography”. This was an advertisement for Mr.UMW that my club had created. We chose to do a lot of bright colors and different fonts so that it would draw the attention of those walking by. The theme for the event is the 90’s, so we decided that the bold colors and font would work well to convey the theme.

I chose this image for “Proportion”. This is a picture from where I was sitting in Pollard today before my voice lesson. The rooms and hallways in Pollard are set up in such a specific way, with hallways of equal length and corridors that lead exactly to where you need to go. I think this is shown in the above photo, as the space between the rooms, as well as the distance from the hall to the room is very proportionate.

This is the image I chose for “Rhythm”. The sheet music is for a song I’m learning called “Si Mes Vers Avaient Des Ailles”. The song has a lot of interesting rhythmic patterns, including triplets, dotted quarter notes followed by eight notes, and dotted half notes. While these are not all that unusual to find in a piece of music, they make the song sound very different than many others that use more traditional rhythmic patterns.

I chose this image for “Color” because I think the colors used in the image are complimentary to one another, but not necessarily in a traditional way. I really liked the mustard yellow, mixed with the blue, turquoise, and green. I like the way the traditional colors mixed with non-traditional to create a beautiful palate.
