    Radio Show Promo

    by
    Attached below is my contribution to our group radio show design poster. We each decided to create an image of our current selves photoshopped with a picture of our younger selves, and then collage all of our photos together into one larger poster. For this image, I used a photoshop application on my phone and […]

    Radio Show Progress

    by
    This week, my group members and I met on Zoom to discuss ideas for our radio show. Before we met, we determined what our theme should be so we could have some idea of what to discuss in our meeting. Our general theme is childhood stories that merge into our college experiences. We wanted to […]

    Weekly Summary

    by
    Below I have included my posts from this week! I enjoyed getting to see the different designs my classmates have made and taken pictures of. I feel like previous weeks have been more focused on posting images you already have or recording a sound, but this week I felt like I really had the opportunity […]

    Let Me Pick Your Brain About Design

    by
    I really enjoyed reading the article about graphic design. I loved seeing some of the old school product designs and some cool newer-aged designs. It was really cool to also read about the author of the book that the article is based on. I loved how they discussed that the author never talked down to […]

    Design Blitz

    by
    Below I have included photos of some elements of design I found this week! It was a bit challenging this week to find design elements around me, as I recently moved and have only had time to go from home to work in between unpacking boxes. So, I did the best I could with what […]

    Hairspray

    by
    One of the assignments from the assignment bank this week was to find a quote from our favorite movie and place it over an image from that movie. I chose the movie/musical Hairspray, because for as long as I can remember I have been OBSESSED with this movie. I love everything about it – the […]

    Word Cloud

    by
    One of the assignments from the assignment bank this week was to create a word cloud describing our experiences with DS106. I’m glad that the three biggest words are challenging, rewarding, and engaging because they are the three words that I think they perfectly describe my thoughts for this class. I have been very challenged […]

    Live Tweeting

    by
    This was my first time live tweeting while listening to something. The story itself was super creepy and kind of made me question my own dreams and why they happen. The sounds in this story were so unique to the time period, from the static of the microphone, to the old school sound effects used. […]

    Just Working Things

    by
    When thinking about what my daily life sounds like, I though a lot about my work life. I work retail and getting up and going to work is a DRAG, but ya know, gotta get that $$. So, I thought it would be funny to make a shortened version of my daily struggle to get […]

    Ted Talk

    by
    For my third assignment for this week, I chose to do a Ted Talk. The assignment was to listen to the way the speaker emphasized words and pauses, and try to recreate it using his speech. I’m always super nervous when it comes to public speaking, so this was definitely something that I needed practice […]

    When ~Corona~ Ends

    by
    In the assignment bank this week, there was an assignment to change a rap song lyrics to post apocalyptic lyrics. I got the idea to change the “post apocalyptic” part to something Covid-19 related. This song came on the radio a few months ago and I substituted “September” with “Corona” and thought it would be […]

    Radio Bumper

    by
    Here is my radio bumper for ds106 radio! It was definitely a little strange making this. I tried to make my voice as smooth as possible (like most radio dj’s) but tried to make it fun and upbeat!

    Sound and Stories

    by
    After listening to Moon Grafiti, it is evident what a key role sound plays in our ability to visualize information. Sound has the ability to set moods and create emotions. When listening to Moon Grafiti, I felt like I was there, in that moment, listening to them. The sound was so raw and real, the […]

    Photoblitz

    by
    Where I live is SUPER boring. I live on a pretty busy road so there’s no where I can really walk to take pictures and I was unable to devote the time this week to get out to a park due to my work and school schedule. So, with that in mind, please enjoy my […]

    Journey to Becoming a Better Photographer?

    by
    I tried to find examples of all of the aspects of photography. It was a bit difficult since I don’t often take pictures (see previous post titled Visual Storytelling for a deeper explanation). With that being said, these photos probably aren’t the best representation of the aspects of photography, but I think they are decent […]

    Visual Storytelling

    by
    When it comes to capturing a picture, I tend to get lost in the moment and forget to capture an image to remember it by. I find myself looking back on a day and wishing I had captured something to remember it by. Most of my pictures in my phone are silly pictures of me […]
