Week6

Week 6 was an enrichment week, so there was no teaching. We had one week, to have some rest, and think about our upcoming tasks, essays, and things to do. We also had time to read, and do some research in topics, that we are interested in. I will go on with my previous week’s blog,  as I could not include everything I wanted.

I have wrote about posters, now I will write about a more recent type of advertising.

Billboards are used to present large advertisements to passing pedestrians and drivers. These advertisements typically show large, ostensibly witty slogans, and distinctive visuals. The largest standard-size billboards, known as Bulletins, are usually located on major highways.

‘Billboard advertisements are designed to catch a person’s attention and create a memorable impression very quickly…’

On this week’s workshop we had time to study Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator in details. As they were not familiar for me, I learned some new things how to use these softwares.

If you want to know how to use Adobe Illustrator, there are some videos on the Internet, that can teach you, step by step:
