    Digital Storytelling; Week 6; Design Thoughts

    One thing that stuck out to me the most from this article was the excerpt on colors. Popova describes how mixing colors can evoke certain moods in a viewer. I’ve been programming for a very long time and my favorite part is designing websites. It’s very rewarding for a design or sketch come together perfectly …

    A Kid’s Designer Guide to Graphic Design by Chip Kidd sounds like a brilliant way to not only get kids involved in graphic design, but also adults. It offers a guide to what graphic design is and how to achieve it. There are many different ways ...

    Reflecting on Design

    First things first, I absolutely love graphic design. As soon as I saw this was design week, I got so excited. I did a lot of graphic design my senior year of high school when I was taking an Advanced Design class and Photojournalism (working on the school’s yearbook). I am so ready to create

    Keamo’s thoughts on design

    After reading The Vignelli Canon I learned that there is are 3 aspects to design: Semantic, Syntactic and Pragmatic. It’s actually slightly similar to the steps of software development. As you start with planning then implementing. In the article, Brain Pickings article about Kidd and his book, They discuss the importance of designing and how…

    Design Thoughts

    After reading the Vignelli Cannon and the article about Kidd and his book focused on Graphic Design for kids, I think I have a better understanding of the importance of design. In the Brain Picking article, it claims that every decision we make is bas...

    This is my design

    Design is everything. Everything is design. It really is everywhere, though. We talk about it in HISP classes, mostly architectural, but occasionally interior as well.
