Week Six!

Week six is now done! This week was ‘design week.’ It was a lot of fun! I really enjoyed being able to continue to work with expanding my familiarity with Photoshop for my Assignment Back projects. I learned a lot about graphic design, which was also a lot of...

Graphic Design

When I first read the Chip Kidd piece I was reminded of my high school Humanities course and where we talked extensively about style and design, especially in regards to art. We even took a trip to the Virginia Fine Arts Museum (if you haven’t been, I highly recommend!)....

DesignBlitz!

This week we were asked to complete a DesignBlitz were we took pictures of different design concepts we found in our everyday lives. I decided to complete the challenge in non other than Target (where I spend way too much time 😂). It didn’t take much time to see...

Four Icons, One Movie

For my fourth Assignment Bank project I completed the  Four Icons/ One Story assignment, as suggested to us. This was a little trickier than I thought. I picked a movie (it’s from the 80’s) and then began the search for Clip Art. It was a challenge to find which icons...

Quote for the Week

For my first Assignment Bank project this week I chose Favorite Movie Quote. This assignment asks creators to insert their favorite movie quote onto a picture for its correlating movie. Since we are working with the 80’s pop culture theme this semester I went on the hunt to find...

Week Five!!

Live Tweet Along!

This Monday I participated in the DS106 radio tweet-along. At first I was a little intimidated and not sure what to expect; however, I ended up having a lot of fun. I have never participated in a live tweet-along. It was fun to interact with other students in the...
