Project 7

In this project I will learn to:

  • Create graphs to present data in a visual format.
  • Edit graph data to change the appearance of a graph.
  • Import data from an external file.
  • Manage fills, legends, and labels to make graphs more visually appealing.
  • Define a perspective grid.
  • Put objects into the correct perspective.


Read and work through the project in the Against the Clock book. You will use the sample files provided by Against the Clock.

The Source Files

The project and font files are also stored on the server in the graphics labs, AVA-Disciplines/GRDSN/Against_the_Clock. If you work outside the lab, files can be downloaded by following the instructions on the inside back cover of the book.

You may find it convenient to copy the files onto your personal storage area.

What to turn in

Select the following graphs and the gas sign files and compress them into one ZIP archive file.


Create a compressed .zip archive of your files. In Finder, select all the files and click on File>Compress“filename”. The .zip file will appear in the same folder (or Desktop) as the original file or folder. The zip files are a very safe way to move collections of files over the internet, and they usually reduce the file size.

Rename your .zip file to 164-7-My

Attach this .zip archive to your Canvas turn-in area for this project.

Take the quiz

Go to the Assignments section in Canvas and take the project quiz. You are allowed to take the quizzes only twice. You might review and print the quiz before starting the project and locate the answers as you work.
