assignments, design

dear virginia drivers – design assignment –

Well hello again.

I decided to do a 4-star design assignment rather than re-doing one from earlier this week because…reasons. But for today’s assignment I went ahead and did the PSA Billboard which I found very rewarding.

For those of you who don’t know…I absolutely despise a good 99% of Virginia drivers. I have literally driven in other states and have never experienced the stupid amount of crazy accidents and traffic caused by said accidents. My hometown of Charleston, SC doesn’t have this amount of traffic and the amount of accidents and even though Los Angeles had some bad traffic, very rarely was it because of accidents. But I have began to notice why a heavy majority of VA drivers…for lack of a better word, suck. THEY DON’T KNOW HOW TO BREAK, USE A TURN SIGNAL, OR LOOK AROUND PRIOR TO MERGING INTO A DIFFERENT LANE. It’s sad and I cannot count how many times I have been so close to wrecking my vehicle because of another driver’s error. Please understand, everyone makes mistakes including myself, but some of these people literally do not give a crap about other people’s safety…so I made this PSA Billboard to release some of my tension and anger.

Oh yes, please enjoy my desire for a pink vehicle. For this assignment I used a clip art of a vehicle that was originally grey, but made pink because I’m sassy and don’t care. As for the fonts, I used “Abril Fatface,” “Trashhand,” and “Schoolbell.” After situating everything where I wanted it to go, I then found a billboard template to use because the assignment dared me to and BLAM. Here it is. DRIVE SAFE VIRGINIA.

Here’s a step-by-step tutorial on how I made this PSA Billboard;

What do you think of VA drivers…or any other state drivers?
