For Week 12, Assignment 4: Transparent Illusion and Final Project (4/21)

Remember to allow enough time to submit, print, place on a window, and photographs.
Five days is a safe time frame between emailing the document and picking up the stickers. The stickers will not be printed over the weekend; send them in today via email, Friday, April 15, at the latest.

Instructions for SETTING UP AND SENDING IN THE STICKERS DOCUMENT  (shown in class)

Your goal is to have your printed sticker illustrations placed and integrated into the scenery that goes beyond the window. It is important to have the right scale and lineup of the stickers in relationship to the scenery. Create the images dark enough to show up when placed on your window.
Take photos of the stickers and scenery from different vantage points. Be sure the stickers and scenery are both in focus (not blurry in the background.) Print out the photographs for the final presentation. Then enjoy the final illusion!

1. Complete the formatted Illustrator document 
2. Send the file via email to the Design Lab in time to receive the stickers by Wednesday before class.
3. Place the stickers on the chosen window(s) areas.
4. Take good-quality photos of the setup to show as your final presentation. (The printed stickers and PRINTED photos of them on the window are the final project.) I showed examples of the printed photos in our last class. Please carefully align the stickers and the scene through the window when taking your photos. You want to create a convincing illusion.
Please be sure to use quality photo paper or shiny paper to print out your photos for the presentation.
