    A Silent Documentary: Braiding Hair


    The silent documentary below is of me braiding my hair. I found it hard to teach people how to proud without being able to explain the process. I tried to incorporate hand gestures to let my audience know to section the hair into three sections. I’m not sure how easy …

    Video Is Soon To Be Continued….


    This week was definitely the most challenging for me. I don’t usually record video unless it’s a quick video on my iPhone that I just leave on my iPhone lol. I don’t usually create videos to share like I had to this week. I decided to take path one and …

    Remixed Logo


    I decided to give Alex Whitmore’s logo a little revamping. I was happy with my initial logo but wanted something a little bit more than just her name. I decided to choose a cool design template on Canva.com and play around with the color scheme a bit. I also decided …

    Alex Whitmore’s Logo


    Below is Alex Whitmore’s logo. I chose to use a font that I found appealing. I though the color pink mixed with black not only looked nice but also expresses the type of character Alex truly is. She can be girly, but she can also be a tomboy. She isn’t …

    Alternate Book Cover: Wool


    Below is my alternate book cover for Wool by Hugh Howey. I chose to use a picture of silos since the characters of the novel are living in a silo. I wanted the image to be black and white so a eerie feel would be given off. In the novel, …
