    QU of the WEEK

    The best group that I have ever been a part of was super forced. We were literally forced to spend hours together, add each other on social media, have a group chat, meet up for lunch or drinks. We HAD to spend so much time together and forced to become …

    Hello everyone! My last assignment for this week was to create my own Valentine’s Day card. I was tasked with making an image and modifying it with a cool effect. I was especially supposed to be *funny* and *witty*. This assignment really jumped out to me because Valentine’s Day just …

    Video Personalities ?! Let me know!!

    by

    I do think that the videos slightly do contradict each other because the first video explains that “desire and focus” is the best tactic to complete creative advertising and design whereas in the second video we are told that being simple and not educated might be the best approach. I …

    Graphic Design is My Passion

    by

    Hello everyone! To start off this week I am going to reflect on some readings and watchings I did.

    The first video I watched was “Great Design Is Serious, Not Solemn” by Paula Scher. This video was amazing as Paula really dove deep into the process behind her creations. Actually, …

    I have created my own cover for the book World War Z by Max Brooks! Below is the original cover:


     

    And here is my cover:

    I tried making my version less gritty (except for the Earth) and more modern, since much of the book looks retrospectively at the past …

    Visual Assignment:

     

     

    This is my favorite photo that I have ever taken. I took it at some restaurant in Chicago. Why? It’s been ten years, and I still don’t know. Maybe it’s the lighting. Maybe its the feeling it leaves me with when I look at it. Maybe …

    My Interpretation: of the 8 principles of design.

    So I figured I could find things around my home, around my neighborhood, my immediate area, but to my luck I couldn’t really find anything to fit the eight concepts.  In my area there are a lot of construction signs but I figured this would be bleh so I chose …

    Tala’s Word Cloud

    by

    I used wordclouds.com to create my character, Tala’s word cloud. I used her backstory to retrieve the words for her cloud, and I deleted the filler and unimportant words so the word cloud would be more representative of her. I decided to make her cloud in the shape of a …

    Winifred in a Cloud

    by

    This is the word cloud that I created to describe my character, Winifred Hart!

    I used colors that went well together (purple, blue, and green are next to each other on the color wheel), and picked a shape that would separate the words, but clearly become one larger image. This …

    Information can be found on the poster! Please help find and return this hat.

    I found two things difficult about this assignment: creating a background image and determining the “last seen.” For the background, I ended up using a free Canva background that looked like lined paper. I then added …

    California Book Cover

    by

    The book cover I created for California is not too different from the original, but I think it tells a lot more about the plot than the forest that the real cover depicts.

    In my initial Canva search, I found many abandoned places. This one caught my eye because of …
