    Although this was a calmer week, I loved it just the same! It was nice to slow things down for a little bit after the big radio project. But I also really enjoyed the opportunity to revisit some of my old work this week!

    Revisiting the Past


    In this post, I’m revisiting the past! Some of it was scary (I had to use GIMP again!) and some of it was fun!

    A few weeks ago, I worked on an assignment that challenged me to create an inspiration quote added to a background on GIMP. It was a …

    Week 8, Come and Gone


    Wow, this week flew by! I guess it’s because of Fall Break. But nonetheless, this week in DS106 was exciting.

    The majority of this week was focused on my groups radio show. I enjoyed the creativity, brainstorming, and audio work practice that this involved. My group members all got along …

    This week was all about working on the radio show! It required a lot of creativity, work, and team brainstorming.

    Whistling a Tune [??]


    Alright, here we go with a name-that-tune challenge! This assignment was to record yourself whistling a song that you get stuck in your head a lot. I’m supposed to make people guess what the song is. But I’ll leave the answer down below.

    Can’t figure it out?

    It’s Sam Smith’s …

    Got Atari? [?????]


    Here we have another audio challenge! For this assignment, you needed to create a 30-45 second radio commercial for a product from the 80s. My product is… the Atari!!

    I had a lot of fun mixing together arcade-setting audio, and also messing around with different audio effects to change my …

    Week Six Fun


    Alright, Week 6 has come and gone! Design week has definitely been an interesting one, filled with both a lot of fun and a lot of challenges. But as usual, with each week, I learn a little more and begin to appreciate new ways of storytelling.

    What’s Design All About?


    Here is my reflection on “A Kid’s Guide to Graphic Design” by Iconic Designer Chip Kidd.

    After having read this article, all I can say is wow – design is so immensely diverse, creative, and expressive.

    It really rang true to me to hear that EVERYTHING IS DESIGNED. Think about …

    Design Blitz Fun


    Alright, here we go! I tracked my week in photos, and here are four images that I think do a good job of demonstrating important design principles. This is exactly what Brain Pickings is talking about when addressing the depth and thought that must go into design. The goal is …

    Warning: You may get lost! This challenge was to create… a maze! This challenge was a lot of fun, as I found a website that guides you through the creation of your own maze. You can regulate dimensions, the number of dead ends, the shape of the maze, etc. All …

    Feeling Motivated


    Ready for an inspirational quote? You came to the right place! This challenge was to pick out an image and add a quote to it. It allowed the liberty of being sarcastic with it. So I hope you enjoy!

    The Banana Candle You Never Knew You Needed


    Come one, come all! I present to you my latest business venture: Banana Candles!

    This challenge was more fun than the previous one, in large part due to the fact that I didn’t need to use GIMP! The goal was to create a simple yet attractive business logo.

    Let me …

    Are You Sold?


    Well this final product demands an immediate apology – as I’ve mentioned before, I CANNOT use GIMP, and it’s really quite frustrating. As many tutorials as I watch, GIMP doesn’t work properly. 0% rating for user friendliness.

    The goal of this challenge was to sum up a movie using four …

    Ready to Cry?


    This design challenge was to create a minimalist movie poster of a favorite movie of mine. Hence, I chose Marley and Me. A beautiful, but ultimately sad movie. And I guess the design is a little sad. This week is gonna be ROUGH. I’m not good at design. But I’m …
