    I really enjoyed learning about design storytelling this week. It was cool to learn how design is like a communication, in that, if your audience does not understand your message or end goal of your design, then you failed in your design and nothing else matters. This also showed me …

    I found the design blitz to be difficult because it was hard for me to find already made designs that inhabited these different design concepts (color, typography, minimalism, etc.). However, all of the designs I found ended up being posters on campus, so here is what I found and why …

    Design Thoughts

    by

    After reading The Vignelli Cannon by Massimo Vignelli, I learned that design is like communicating. The viewer’s understanding of the meaning or end goal of the design is of most importance because if the audience does not understand the design, then all else fails and nothing else matters. Therefore, design …

    Audio Reflection

    by

    Audio storytelling is a very interesting concept that I have never really thought about before. However, if there was never any sound in the background, everything would just seem bland. After listening to “Moon Graffiti,” I realized the importance of audio storytelling. Certain sounds elicit some type of …
