We’ve wrapped up our unit on visual storytelling and photography, and in this unit we’re diving into design. It’s not always clear where the line is between design and visual, but ds106 design storytelling assignments involves more creating and modifying in graphics software programs, and focuses on key characteristics of color, form, shape, typography, etc.
You’ll spend some time this unit thinking about the way the world around you is designed, as well as creating some of your own design ideas.
