This is the final project! A virtual exposition of La Chinita`s Fair! We made this Exposition in the URBE EFL Center in Second Life. We decided to make a Stand and put it in the middle of the place, it has to faces, it is like a triptic.

Main features of the event


The format of this project is an stand with the form of a tryptic, it also have an oval form in the top of it that move. Has a simple diagram, vertical, using a lot of images, the reticle has tree columns in vertical.

Design determiners:

Image Style: The determiner of this stand is the using of the typical colors and shapes of the fair, also using images taken of the monument representatives.

Color: The determiner of the color was vivid colors, like blue or reds.

Fonts: We use Serif typography with ornaments.

Graphic elements: We use photographs and vectors.

Graphemes: We use vectorisation of the monument of la chinita for a poster, and images with special effects.

Visual Rhetoric: We use the sinecdoque because it expresses the part for all.

Semiotic: We use it in the symbols of la chinita, in the pictures. We also use paradigmatic relatiens where signs get meaning from their association with other signs.

Advertising: The message that we use was ``chinita`s fair``, because it is consistent and leaves you just right to the meaning of the project.

Graphic Concept

Our 3 meaningful terms were: Inspiring, religion and fair.

Sistagmatic relation: This was stablich by the meaning of the fair la chinita and the history of the fair.


For a job interview

I watched a video about jobs interviews that my teacher show me, here is the link of the video

In this video a learn that for a job interview you have to take into account the clothing, dress appropriately for the occasion, maintain a clean and sophisticated look. To give a good impression you have to make eye contact, smile, handshake and a great enthusiasm.

I also learned that job interviews can be done  in restaurants and cafes or by telephone. Interviewers can not ask questions related to family, culture or gender. The end of the interview is the most important because the candidate has the opportunity to ask questions. Just be yourself and everything is going to be alright. Be cool!

Unit 2. Using online Dictionaries!

Advanced Photo System
Advanced Photo System (APS) refers to the 24 mm film that is the standard format for still photography. There are three different types of APS film that are classified as either “H,” “C” or “P.” In this system, “H” stands for HDTV format, “C” for classic format and “P” for panoramic format. Apart from the occasional disposable camera, nearly all APS cameras come equipped to record in each of these formats.
In the HDTV and classic mode of advanced photo systems, the film records the image in a particular aspect ratio that can then be reprinted in a variety sizes.
Unlike other film formats, APS film can record more that just the image. Along with the visual details of a given scene, APS film can also document the date, time, a caption and details related to how the shot was captured (i.e. the particular setting of the shutter speed or aperture).
The film generally records this information in “magnetic IX” or “optical IX” modes. While higher end cameras use the magnetic IX method, less expensive cameras, such as disposable cameras, tend to use the optical IX version of information storage. Because the magnetic IX mode is only available on more expensive cameras, it accurately records more information.
