    Look at, Listen to, and Analyze the Joker

    by

    I decided to analyze a film that is recognized by many except by me. Crazy to think about it but I don’t think I’ve ever fully watched the Batman movie, The Dark Knight. I know, insane! But here I am, about to analyze a scene of the Joker.

    Look:

    “Reading” Movies?

    by

    I learned from “How to Read a Movie”, that reading a movie is basically analyzing the scene. Roger Ebert mentioned an example that he heard from film critic, John West. The example is that you can analyze films just like how football coaches study game plays. I never really …

    Moon Graffiti

    by

    Moon Graffiti began with beeping and static noises represent the setting. The conversation exchanged through the radio became hectic when the characters talked faster and the alarm going off. There is an abrupt ending when the voices and the noises cut off. The audio picks back up after a few …

    TED Radio and Scottlo

    by

    The TED Radio Hour is a short audio clip, with commentary included.

    From the short clip, I learned that when the audio has multiple speakers, the narration shifts once that new speaker enters the conversation. Once a story is being told, the background music is added. The calming music was …

    The Gym

    by

    Earlier this week, I decided to take pictures of the gym I go to. While I was there, I realized that the gym is a perfect example of the design concept, Rythm/Pattern.

    The gym is divided into different sections, depending on the type of exercises. There is an abs section, …

    Too Dark

    by

    This is the sign of a restaurant called East Ocean. I decided to use this photo to talk about the design concepts, Color and Typography.

    The letters are in dark blue. I am assuming that the designer of the sign chose to make the letters blue because of the name …

    For my second Animated GIF assignment, I completed the “DS106 Reacts” prompt.

    The other day, I was scrolling through Instagram and I saw a video post of Lala, the yellow Teletubbies dancing, someone made a meme of it. That, for some reason, inspired me to watch the show again. …

    The main symbol of the sign is the cartoon cow’s head. Its eyes resemble the O’s in “Moo”. The bottom of the U …

    Thoughts on Vignelli Canon

    by

    As I read Vignelli Canon by Massimo Vignelli, I realize that it is fairly complex. Many things go into the process of creating a design.

    Vignelli mentions that he focuses on the three main concepts: semantic, syntactic and pragmatic. For semantic, he explains that understanding the purpose and the intention …
