    Radio Bumper


    I used https://freesound.org again to find a background sound. Then I transferred it over to Audacity, and recorded my part of the radio bumper.

    I can’t always think of what to say for a radio bumper, I usually go through like 10 different scripts before I find the right one …

    Radio 7 Sound Effects


    I really liked doing this because it is kind of it’s own promo. I used sound effects from https://freesound.org and Audacity. I wanted to find sound effects that related to our radio show. I looked up the specific sounds I wanted, and imported them into Audacity. I messed around with …

    Radio 7 Logos


    I created two different logos for our radio show. I used Canva, and tried to not use their templates because I wanted something unique. I found a silhouette of Bob Ross from Google, because he is the focus of our radio show. I then messed around with a few stickers …

    Radio Show Progress


    Things are progressing well for our project. I’m excited to see where our radio show takes us. We decided to do a mystery show (which was an idea from my original list, so needless to say I’m extremely excited). We met on Sunday (those of us who were able to), …

    6 Blog Posts on Week 6


    This week was so much fun. It could be because we weren’t assigned as much, so I felt like I could take my time on each assignment now. I really thought hard about what I wanted to produce this week, and I think I managed to really reflect my design …

    Thinking about design


    I think the readings really helped me complete my design blitz. I realized what was important, and what I could focus on in order to tell a story.

    Graphic design needs your willing mental participation, even if it’s subconscious. Graphic design is message-sending into the brain. It is a cerebral …

    Just keep swimming


    When thinking about this assignment, I kind of came up with a bunch of different ideas.

    A Cinderella Story – “Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.”

    Grey’s Anatomy – “Pick me, choose me, love me.”

    The Notebook – “If I’m a bird, …

    Event Poster


    I wasn’t sure what event I wanted to do for this assignment. I went on the venue website that I usually see most of my concerts at, at home, and found one that I would like to go to and ended up making this poster.

    I used Canva to …

    Vogue but make it… different


    So I took a different approach for this assignment. I’m not a big fan of taking pictures of myself, and I didn’t want to just do landscape picture because that doesn’t say anything about me. I knew I wanted to use my dog as the subject for the photo, …

    Let’s talk…


    I brainstormed quite a few ideas in my head for what my radio show could be. My favorite would be simply talking about my life and my experiences (podcast style), answering questions about myself, etc…

    My other idea would be to have a radio show where I talk about a …

    My take on this assignment was probably pretty basic, but I had so much fun doing it. I used a total of 6 different ~scary~ sounds from http://freesound.org. I’ve been having a lot of fun messing with the envelope feature, so when the person opens the door, you’ll notice …

    The evil birds


    I listened to the DS106 Radio twice. I listened on Monday, but I didn’t participate in the discord enough to think I could write a blog post about it. I then listened to Wednesday’s, which I’m really glad I did (I personally thought it was a bit more interesting, maybe …

    Moon Graffiti


    When listening to Moon Graffiti, I got a lot from their voices. Around 7 mins in, my heart about dropped because of their shift in tone. Though they were fearful from the beginning, they immediately went to being absolutely terrified and ready to say goodbye to their wives and kids. …

    Finally… the week is over


    I think this week was interesting, because everyone was producing so much work. I do wish I would have taken a different approach this week. I wish I would have started with the photography reflection post/ds106 photography post, so I could use that new knowledge when I was completing my …

    Understanding photography


    I wouldn’t say when I take pictures that I focus on a story. I usually take pictures in order to remember a moment (which may be considered a story, I just don’t think so). Anyone can look at a photo I took of some trees, but they would never understand …

    Sweet Creature


    I’m not sure why I chose this assignment. I’m not a big concert fan, but I will say after seeing so many TikToks of people at a Harry Styles concert… I want to go. However, you will NEVER catch me paying that much money to see him unless I …

    Rosie, the hungry hungry hippo


    THIS ASSIGNMENT WAS PERFECT – because I have the most sassy animals in the world. For a bit of background, my dog was playing at her doggie friends house… but as soon as food comes around you’re done. She will bark, and bark, and bark until she has what she …

    1, 2, 3 cats…


    For this assignment, I kind of wanted to switch it up a bit. I used an older photo, but I knew I had to use one where all my cats were in the same place. I find it funny how each of my cats have a different expression on …

    Weekly Summary 3


    I feel as if I didn’t write much this week because this week flew by. I will say I procrastinated a lot. I did create brainstorms for everything I wanted to do for the week, I just never got around to it until the last minute (that’s what happens when …

    My very “rough draft” of an outline


    I honestly couldn’t think of a long-form story at all. Whenever I thought of something, my mind immediately went to animals. So how do I write a story about animals? I bounced around ideas I could use, so I figured I’d outline them, that way in the future if one …
