Week Two Summary

What a week! I have learned and developed a lot of skills this week through the different assignments. I have really enjoyed diving more into our theme and finding ways to incorporate it into my different projects for this class. Photoshop has definitely been my favorite thing I’ve used this week. I was able to use my photoshopping skills in both my Daily Creates and Assignment Bank assignments. At the beginning of this week I was a bit nervous about the work load. It seemed a lot more challenging than the first week (which I should have assumed it would […]

Animals Doing Funny Things

For my last assignment from the assignment bank this week I chose an AnimatedGIF assignment. I chose to make a gif of an animal doing something funny. I knew right off the bat I wanted to make a gif with a dog in it because dogs are my favorite animals. In order to create my gif, I first had to find a video I wanted to use so I looked on YouTube at a bunch of different dog videos until I found one I liked the most. Then I uploaded it to Giphy and it did the rest of the […]

Contradiction Creation

For my next assignment bank for this week, I chose to do one from the design assignments. I chose one where I had to find an inspirational background and then put an anti-motivational quote on top of it. I chose this one because honestly, I thought it was super funny. I picked a 80s themed background (to keep with the 80s theme of the class) and then chose a quote that I laughed at the most. I hope you are un-motived after reading this post 🙂

Concert You Want to Be At

For this assignment bank, I chose to do one of the visual assignments. The instructions for this challenge was to photoshop yourself into a concert you’ve always wanted to attend. I chose to “attend” an Elton John concert. Not only do I really enjoy his music, he also went on his “1980 World Tour” in the 80s which matches our theme for the class. Although the picture I used to photoshop myself in was not from that particular tour, I still thought it was fitting. I really enjoy using photoshop so I really enjoyed this challenge. I am definitely a […]

Week One Summary

After this week, I am very excited for this class. Social media is something that I think I would like to do for a future job (as in manage social media accounts for whatever company I work for) so I am interested to see how I do with my social media accounts for this class. Instagram is my favorite social media and I had a fun time creating a new post and choosing what picture to use for my intro. I decided on one of me dressed in my 80s themed costume (fitting for the theme of this class). As […]

What Do the 80’s Mean to Us Today?

When I heard that our theme for the class was going to be 80s themed, I got very excited. I love the 80s (I have been someone from the 80s for as many Halloweens as I can remember). My mom grew up in the 80s and she always tell my sister and I stories of when she was younger and I remember being so jealous and wanting to live during the time of slap bracelets and mixtapes. And don’t even get me started on the movies that came out during the 80s…I remember wishing that I’d look out my window […]
