Transcript of CorelDraw

CorelDraw CorelDraw is a computer application for illustration graphics. It is the art of using images to convey a message and create an effect.
This graphic design software enables you to create designs for newsletters, logos, cards, invitations, posters, book covers, and brochures. Cards Logos Book
Covers Brochures World Wildlife Fund Women's Rights Foundation
Logo The purpose of this design software is to inform, persuade and entertain people through visuals. The program is marketed and developed by Corel Corporation. Graphic design is different from today than in the past. In the past, designers used points and pencils while today, they also use computers. Terms Saturation
Tint and Shade
Value Saturation The term saturation relates to the light intensity of a color. It is not really the lightness or darkness of a color but how pale or strong the color is. Saturation defines a range from pure color (100%) to gray (0%) at a constant lightness level. A pure color is completely saturated. Tint & Shade Pale Pink Strong Pink Tint and shade show us how the color varies from its hue. If white is added the lighter version is called the tint. If black is added, then the darker version of the caller is called a shade. Today Computers
are also used. Hue Hue is the degree to which a stimulus can be described as similar to or different from stimuli that are described as for example red, blue, and green. Colors with the same hue can have different lightness. Value Value refers to the lightness or darkness of a color. Changing the lightness or darkness is done by either adding white or black. The hue stays the same but the tone is different. Brainstorming for
Who is my audience?
What is my subject?
What is my message or purpose of the design? While brainstorming for a design, the designer must ask him or herself the following questions. What is the most attractive part of a design or image? Colors in a design: direct attention
create emphasis
show similarities and differences
make the design or image exciting to look at; make it memorable
show emotional meaning While working with this module, we went through a process. We input data, information and materials. The input goes through investigation, analyzation, planning, brainstorming possible solutions and choosing solutions, and finally construction. After the process, we have an output. This is the
Design Process! The design process is a series of steps that transfer the knowledge you already have and applies it into the real world. This process helps resolve problems through the following system. Design Process 1. Input 2. Process 3. Output 4. Evaluate What is our problem
that we need to solve? The issue to situation that we have is to understand and be able to work with the computer software CorelDraw. We are to complete all the activities in the binder, answer the thinking questions based on this module and create a prezi. Input 1 What information and resources are we provided with? Resources or materials that we are provided with are the binders that give us concise information and steps for us to read, understand and perform ourselves on the software. We are also provided with videos to build on our knowledge even more. Input 2 The binder includes procedures to creating certain designs with visuals. With the procedures you also learn commands for the software and definitions are included with the explanations. There is also a glossary and review questions at the end of the binder. To work with the actual program, students are provided with computers with the CorelDraw program installed. Processes 1. Define your goal: Our goal is to learn and understand the module CorelDraw. 2. Investigate, analyze and understand: We investigated and analyzed through the binder that was created for this software. To expand our knowledge we watched the videos that were created for the program CorelDraw. 3. Choose the Best Solution: The best solution to this problem is to first watch the CorelDraw videos, then read and perform the activities that are stated in the binder. 4. Plan and Design: To plan for this module we basically watched the videos because they gave us an introduction to the software. We also planned out how we would balance out all the work because we had to complete the activities , answer the thinking questions, create a prezi and study for the test. 5. Construct: After planning and choosing the best solution, we began working with the CorelDraw software. Careers Related to CorelDraw A career that’s skills are related to the skills I’m learning in this module are graphic designing. A graphic designer is someone who works within the graphic design and graphic arts industry. They create designs by assembling together images or motion graphics. The main responsibility of a graphic designer is to make sure that the information they present is memorable and sends out the correct message using visuals. Broad-Based Technologies CorelDraw falls under the broad based technology technological design and manufacturing. Technological Design Technological design basically involves design, development, application and management of computers. Computer graphic software is involved in technological design. CorelDraw is a part of technology and is a design program. Manufacturing Manufacturing involves creating products but to create a product you need diagrams, designs and plans. Computer software’s are used to help create these diagrams and designs like CorelDraw. You can create the way your product looks or the designs used to create it in this program. Essential Skills To complete this rotation, you need the following essential skills: computer use, reading and writing. Computer Use: Using a computer is an essential skill when working with CorelDraw because CorelDraw is computer software. If you do not know how to work with a computer, how will you be able to work with a computer program? Computer use is necessary in CorelDraw. Reading: The skill of reading is essential to this rotation because all the buttons or drops down menus are words. Even though the buttons are icons to, if you hover the arrow on top of the button, the written description is displayed on the screen. The description informs you about what the button does. To perform a certain action, you have to click the right button with the right command. Being able to read and understanding the text will allow you to perform certain actions. Writing: Writing is communicating by arranging words, numbers and symbols on paper or a computer screen. Writing is done when you answer the thinking questions based on your module and when you create the prezi. To write, you need to be able to input the knowledge you have gained into words. Work Habits Working Independently: This work habit enables you to work without any supervision and accomplish tasks independently. You are able to use prior knowledge and experience to help solve problems. This skill was necessary in CorelDraw because we had to work with the module by ourselves. Even though we had a group of people working with the same module, we worked on the programs by ourselves. We completed the thinking questions and the prezi also individually. Initiative: Initiative means to approach new tasks with confidence and positive attitude. You begin and complete tasks without anyone’s supervision. This skill was important in CorelDraw because in 10 days it was our goal to completely understand the module we were working with and complete all the activities. We had to finish our work without the teacher telling us what to do.
Organization means to devise and follow a coherent plan to complete a task. Not only were we supposed to understand our modules but were also supposed to answer these thinking questions and create a prezi. We had to organize our work priorities because a number of tasks were supposed to be completed. We also had to make sure that we kept our activities, drawings and animations in a safe place with organized labels. Organization Balance Balancing connects to organization because with all the work priorities that we had to face, we had to balance the work out. We had to make sure that whatever work was to be handed in, was handed in on time. Fundamental Concepts of Technology Fabrication Fabrication is a process that when followed will yield a result. It is the act of assembling the product. When we design in CorelDraw we follow a process and that process is the assembling of our item or product. Aesthetics Aesthetics deals with the design or visual of the product. Aesthetics makes the product pleasing to human senses and CorelDraw will help you do that. It gives you the opportunity to create your design. You get a chance to visually see your design and if you don’t like it then you can alter or delete it. Presentation by
Safeerah Zainab Audience Analysis The designer must determine what his/her audience will and will not like and decide the kinds of images and colors to use based on the audience. Audience analysis is important because your design is going to be viewed by your audience. The image or design is directed towards them. Output The prezi, questions, test, activities and my knowledge and understanding of CorelDraw are my output. I understand the software's purpose/function. I realize how important graphic design software's are in career fields and realize that programs like CorelDraw help to plan and design many objects or items. Videos My Work
