LAITS – Jazz Appreciation Design & Template

I was asked to transform an old template/layout to a new, modernized, and nicer looking “Spotlight” slide, using elements from the old layout.

Original template that I need to rework. No photo/video of the professor + logo

First two quick mockups I made, based off the color style guide and palette from the edX video introduction.

Made the logo smaller and lengthened the text boxes to create a more cohesive layout.

Added the live-traced (in Illustrator) musicians in the background, increasing transparency to fade them into the background. Other objects also got a lowered opacity to show the musicians.

“Daytime” mockup with the almond color from the style guide faded out because of low opacity.

spotlight-nighttime-version-copy

“Nighttime” version of the same mockup, this time with blue off the style guide.

Finishing touches on the alignment and layout.

The client chose the ‘nighttime’ version, so I guided out the text.

Shown with guides and layers. Many of the instructions for objects were in the layer titles.
