There has been a lot of stuff I have loved about this class that I want to showcase here. Constantly my classmates and roommates are showing me up by coming up with even better design projects. I am also amazed at what people came up with for assignments for others to do. Here are some of my favorites:
-GIFS: I love all the animated gifs people have been doing. My goal is to do sometime in the semester when I have a bunch of free time. They seem pretty intimidating to me, but I know that I can make one if I just sit down and take a look at some tutorials. I have really liked Dave’s and it is great to see people doing them for the first time. I also thought this one with crazy fingers by Megan was great.
-BIG CAPTION: I have liked the big caption assignments for both myself and others. I thought Jordan‘s were especially good and made me laugh. I liked Somethingkindaooooh. She made me laugh and apparently the fire picture was very popular for doing big captions.
-PHOTOGRAPHY: The Daily Shoot assignment has kept us all busy and creative for the last two weeks. I love the photography done by Chronicles of the House. It is not only great photography, but they blog about the process and insights, which helps me process my own work.
I have also appreciated Andrew‘s radio t-shirts (particularly the Mao one), even if they are controversial. I loved the design assignment by Stephanie where you use your name like Google. This was a great idea because it is something we see Google do all the time, but I had never thought to incorporate it into my own life.
Basically, I see that the entire class is doing great. It is actually a lot of fun to see how people have designed their blogs and are now filling them. I feel like it some of these assignments you can see the personality of the people behind the computer. It is great and I expect to continue to be amazed.
