Media arts internship February 12, 2015

I’m finally home, so I was able to finish the flowchart infographic by adding a couple graphics. I uploaded the new version and added it to the post I had created last week. The post is scheduled for Friday morning.

I’m including the journal log for another hour I did on February 9th, because I did another hour of my internship after I had already logged the hours and written the journal entry. I had planned to include it in the next day’s work, but I got caught up in some other things that kept me from doing any internship hours. Anyways, late in the evening February 9, I decided to gather some ideas for a fun project I wanted to do later in the Spring or even early in the season. The Astros ballpark has a couple goofy elements to it that they’re thinking of changing in the future. One of them being Tal’s hill which is a small hill in centerfield in play. I had the idea of making some changes to the hill in Photoshop and wanted to get some interaction going on the sites Twitter account, so I asked our followers, “what changes they would make to Tal’s Hill.” I’ll take those ideas and do some Photoshop work to Tal’s hill. Except that our graphics designer Ryan saw what I asked on Twitter and started to Photoshop some of those ideas. Here is what he did.

Some good stuff there. I’ll be adding my own additions to it and creating a post for the site.

The last part of February 12 I spent creating the main logo for our Astros Fan Favorite March Madness Tournament event. Here’s what that looks like.

Kind of plain, but I’m hoping to improve upon it the next few days.
