Sarah Heinz House

1) The Sarah Heinz house is an after school program that gives children a place to go and learn. There are recreational, educational and community service programs. The goal is to promote healthy lifestyles. They are affiliated with the Boys and Girls club.

2) The message was clear immediately on the front page of the website. Once we clicked the about us page we were given an even more in depth look at what the organization was all about. It was presented in a clear manner.

3) The website says “we” a lot which produces a sense of community, it’s very open and inclusive language. It is also simple language so the majority of people will be able to understand it.

Barack Obama Photo

Barack Obama Photo

This photo of Barack Obama was taken on the anniversary of the day Rosa Parks was arrested for not moving to the back of the bus. It’s a very moving and inspirational photo that symbolizes how segregation and racism still exists today, despite our country’s president being African-American. If a project topic was on racism today, this would be a great visual to use for it.

This info-graphic is a chef’s dream.

 

To recreate this infographic we need to create lines which can be easily done with one button on the Photoshop software. Click the button that resembles a diagonal line and one will appear, you can then drag it along at different angles to create the look that appears in this infographic. To get the text at a slanted point you will need to create text boxes and then rotate them to the desired angle. To do this you select, “Insert textbook” from the drop down menu and then write in the text you want in that specific box. To rotate it you will take a corner of the box so that the whole box is highlighted and drag the rotating dial that looks like a curved arrow.
