Radio Show Design Project

The radio show is something I am really excited about. I have been brainstorming ideas since I heard about the project and am looking forward to actually getting started on it. My group decided we’d name our ourselves “The Breakfast Club” because we thought it fit our group in the sense that we are 4 strangers who are coming together to create something (and hopefully become friends through it). That is where I came up with the idea for my promotional poster. I took the Breakfast Club movie poster and photoshopped my group members heads on the heads of the […]

Week Six Summary

What a fun week! Like I have said in previous posts, I am very interested in design as something I want to do as a career, most specifically website design and graphic design. I had a lot of fun taking stuff I learned and worked on in other classes into this week. My favorite part of the week was definitely the Design Assignments but I’ll talk about those a little later in this post. The first thing I did this week was research design by reading and watching the things posted on the DS106 website. I enjoyed reading the article […]

Tattoo Design

For this assignment, we had to create a custom tattoo design that described us. I thought this would be a fun assignment to complete because I am actually hoping to go get another tattoo soon! My tattoo is roman numerals for the date February, 19, 2003. That is the date that I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. This tattoo means a lot to me because living with diabetes is something I have struggled with for almost 18 years. To me, getting this tattoo is me taking control of my diabetes, not letting it take control of me. When I […]

Design Blitz

For an assignment this week, we had to complete a Design Blitz. That entailed taking pictures of different posters around campus that embody different design elements. I had a lot of fun with this assignment. If I am being honest, I don’t usually take the time to look at the posters around campus so it was very informative as well as cool to analyze them. The first poster I found was from the weekly email I receive from the school. I thought it was a great example of both color and typography. The poster lists the different things that the […]

Join the Women’s Ultimate Frisbee Team!

For this assignment we were tasked to create a poster for an event or club or anything we wanted. I decided to create a poster for the Women’s Ultimate Frisbee Team, Mary Massacre. I joined the team last semester so I thought it would be fun to create a poster for something I was apart of. Here is the poster! I posted it on my twitter to advertise! The girl in the photo is a girl on the team that I found a high quality image of. I am really happy with how it turned out and might give it […]

READ Poster

For this assignment we had to create a READ poster. I decided to take mine the comedic route and make fun of the one and only Donald Trump. I’m not sure if it has been made clear from my other posts or tweets, but I am not a fan of Trump. I may actually be his #1 un-supporter. I first googled a picture of Trump reading (which honestly, there aren’t many pictures of…). I then put a slogan on top of the image in the ways the old READ posters did. Here is the outcome: Hope you had a laugh […]

Logo

For the first of my assignments for the week I will be designing a logo for my business, Hanging with Sam, where I design and make macramé wall-hangings. I started this business over the summer so I am still getting everything settled and a logo is something I’ve had on my to-do list. I decided to make it very clear what my logo was advertising which is why I made sure it included an image of macrame in it. I actually ended up making 2 different designs for the logo. I can’t decide which one I like better. Here are […]

Design Reflection

I am very excited for this week. I think I want to be a web designer/graphic designer so this is gonna be a very fun week for me. In some of my other classes I am learning how to more in-depth how to use photoshop and other photo-editing programs so I am excited to be able to use what I am learning in those classes and apply it to what I make this week. The first thing I did was watch the video on Stranger Things. I thought it was super interesting. It was cool to see the though process […]

Week Five Summary

This week was crazy for me. It was a week where I needed my time management skills. I was busy all last weekend and then went home in the middle of this week for a concert (which was super fun). So I only had 4 full days to get all my work done. It was a bit of a struggle, and I wasn’t able to complete everything I wanted to, but I got as much done as I could which is alright with me. Besides the craziness of the week, I enjoyed the assignments and daily creates. I am a […]
