Design Autobiography #3- Future of Antique Sign

Skyvertising
The future of my object (antique sign) is skyvertising. A plane will disperse colored air dye into the sky in the shapes of objects and words of materials and things being sold. It will last for a week in the sky before it will fade so patrons can enjoy the scene and perhaps want the thing being skyvertised.

Question for IAR212- What else I want to know about Acad, Photoshop and Illustrator

I would like to learn more about Acad. I would like to know how to take an Acad file and put it into sketchup. I would also like to learn more on blocks and how I can get them from other places than the design center. I would like to learn how to make something 3d in acad as well.

I feel like I am pretty aware of Illustrator and photoshop and happy with my knowledge of them at this time.

My 6x6 name & object card

An object that appropriately best represents me as a designer is an antique sign. Antique signs represent my heritage and the roots in which I grew up; growing up in a small country town where everyone kept the old soda shop alive. Antique signs advertise a product (I want my design advertised.) and represent our past ( I want my designs to last and represent the time period I am designing in). They also show us the everyday important things in life most people take for granted. ( I want to make those little things stand out.) They are made of a variety of materials ( I use multiple materials when I design.) and seen in a variety of places. ( I want my design to spread to many places.) The colors on the signs are bold and bright, but get a rustic look through time. ( What I design will look new at first, but through time will begin to take a worn look like all other things in life.) But most of all antique signs help us represent America and what we stand for as a country. They help us remember our past and put comfort in our hearts. ( I want to be an American designer and I want my clients to feel comfort in the places I create for them.)    The cultural look to this object would be that most people consider antique signs as a memory of the past, an antique, something that has value to it. It is also seen as being a type of decor for specific areas and locations. As a subcultural object it is seen as something that will make profit, that will help advertise, and that will be needed for society by those creating the signs.
