This is a picture from when we moved my sister into her apartment I just uploaded it into the photo generator and that was it!

Design Blitz

Design Blitz

For my design blitz I found four different examples that illustrate typography, minimalism/use of space, color, and proportion. Typography: This is the logo that I had designed for the family business. I think that it is an excellent use of typography to create a logo with meaning. The artist was able to create a font and then blend a graphic into the image to create a powerful statement. Minimalism: While this is not necessarily graphic design, I thought it was…

Show Your Work!

Show Your Work!

So when I was looking through the chapters of Show Your Work, I jotted down some notes so I would not take up time writing my reflection if someone else was trying to access the book. However I think I may just leave my notes in bullet format and just reflect a little on each point that I thought was important in the first two chapters. how an artist prior to the digital age struggled to share the process Imagine…

Design Reflections

Design Reflections

I found the resources that were provided to us this week to be rather insightful. I started from the video imbedded on the blog, then read the Stranger Things Article, and finally the short booklet. Therefore I will give a quick run down in that order of what I thought. The video started the thought process for me about how much more difficult it must have been to create type faces and signs without a computer. We live in a…

Doggy dog dog

So I had 10 stars worth of assignments completed and was looking for something that was not so time consuming to complete. I then found Dog it out where you upload your dog to an editor and then add your desired features. When looking through what other people had done, I found one where they had uploaded their dog to a Keanu Reeves promotion where you can ganastafy your pet. I looked it up and sure enough there it was!…

Motivational Poster

Motivational Poster

The third assignment that I created for the week was a motivational poster worth 3 stars. My GIMP skills are improving! This was not too bad of an assignment after learning the other two. Definitely gaining speed with the program. I first searched for a quote that I liked. I chose a quote that spoke to me as an entrepreneur and then found an image that I thought matched. I paired them and then found a font that I also…

House of Cards Poster

House of Cards Poster

For my second assignment of the week I chose to do one of the recommended assignments. The simplistic Movie Poster was worth 3.5 stars and can be found at: http://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/minimalist-tvmovie-poster/ I chose to do a House of Cards poster because I had a great idea to cut out a spade and then put it on a flag. I wish it would have been as easy as I just said, but it was not. I am still working on my learning…

Most Wanted Outlaws

Most Wanted Outlaws

For my first assignment of the week I chose to create an old western most wanted poster worth three and a half stars. In the description of the assignment it provides a link to a list of the most wanted individuals of the old west. After selecting Butch Cassidy, I investigated how some other students had previously completed the assignments. There is an excellent tutorial on how to complete the assignment that can be found at http://abigailodell.com/assignments/design/bad-girls-do-it-well/ . I had never…

Radio Show Ideas

Radio Show Ideas

Sooo here is what I am thinking. There was a show on the Discovery Channel years ago called The Colony where the cast members had to prep and self sustain after an apocalyptic event. I think it would be cool to do a show about a specific colony when the world comes melting down and how they are self sustaining as well as defending themselves from outside attackers. Lots of meat for a 30 min show and could turn out…
