The 90 Minute Turkey

turkey Resize

My first project in Graphic Design, is kinda crazy.  Well the project is not crazy, but the theme is it is called the 90 Minute Turkey, from ExtremeHolidayIdeas.Com.

Tom Nardone, is the author and guy behind this website.  As a sort of a second job and spare time hobby with his three children he creates silly things.  For instance, he developed a technique on how to defrost and roast a turkey in 90 mins (I had my doubts, but my professor tired, he is crazy like that).

Here are the specs given to the class:
Add vision to the voice.
Read the material, and prepare a printed piece to accompany this. Consider the voice that the author is putting forward.

Here are my thoughts:
So basically do what I want as long as the whole recipe/ how-to is printed. OH MY!!!
After hours of thoughts…here are my first drafts of ideas:
