For my last assignment for my final project I did Greetings from ds106 (again). I previously did this assignment here, but for the stake of my final story I went ahead and did it twice (it will make more sense when you see my whole story together.
For this assignment I made my postcard for a small town in Mississippi. It wasn’t a specific town just one that is quite small. I knew I wanted to make the postcard quite simple. I feel like the a small town would obviously have a less elaborate and decorated postcard that somewhere like Chicago would.
I started off by googling small town Mississippi. I ended up finding a lot of pictures of small town roads and I even came across a sign that said Small Town Mississippi. I guess that town is quite proud of their small size. I ended up going with these to pictures to start:
As I played around in gimp I realized that I wanted it to say welcome to in some way as well. I started off trying to find a font that would work but I wasn’t finding anything that I liked. I ended up deciding to go with the welcome to part off of this sign:
Here is my final result. I feel like I captures the feeling of a small town pretty well. What do you think?
