    I Hate…GIMP?

    GIF #2

    Google. The most popular search engine in the world. The question is, what do people Google on everyday basis? For this assignment I had to type in the phrase, “I hate…” followed by a letter of the alphabet. Some of the results were very strange. For example, in …

    Stolen GIFs

    Design Assignment #3

    Around the Christmas season we all like to bake cookies, buy presents for one another, watch Christmas movies and listen to Christmas music.

    Sorry Mom…

    Design Assignment #1

    Sorry mom, but I designed my first tattoo! I chose this assignment because I love tattoos in general and I’ve always wanted to design my own, but I’m not an artsy person. I also think that tattoos are a great way to express yourself and it’s a …

    Vignelli Reflection

    I thought that The Vignelli Canon had insightful information. I learned new things such as, the three main principles of design, appropriateness, grids, and that the U.S. has 28 different paper sizes! What I enjoyed about this reading was that I could apply it to the layout of …

    Cherry On Top


    At the beginning of the week my friend and I went to a diner. While waiting for our fries I decided to play around with my phone camera. To my surprise it had a selective focus feature, so I tested it out and took a picture of our milkshakes.

    Visual Assignment #5

    The first year of college was quite the experience. It was such a different type of environment that my friends and I were open to almost any idea. It was around the time of our first college midterms, my friends and I were starting to feel the …

    Shady Shadows

    Visual Assignment #1

    In all honesty when I take a picture (regardless of what it is) I always try to not incorporate shadows because for me, it can sometimes ruin a picture. Because of that particular reason I thought that the Shadow of Doubt assignment would be an interesting task …

    Photo Scavanger Hunt


    The picture scavenger hunt took place in my beloved room. The reason I chose this as my scenery was because I have a plethora of objects in it. So I figured I was bound to have something that qualified to each photo description.
