    Morph Shadow’s Finsta


    To kick off Web Storytelling Week, I started with the Create a Finsta assignment from the bank. To relate it to our class, and because I did not want to create a Finsta for myself that I’d never use, I created one for Morph Shadow, as it is her secret …

    Sweet n Sour Radio Logo


    For our radio show, each member of my group chose an image they were going to create. I chose to create a logo for the show. To create my logo, I looked up free photos of microphones and found the one pictured in the final product. Then, I looked up …

    Weekly Summary 6


    This week was design week and for the most part, I thoroughly enjoyed the assignments.

    Super Logos


    For the Create a Logo assignment, I was to create a logo that was simple yet detailed. To complete this task, I decided to create a logo for my character because every superhero deserves a logo and I have yet to give her one!

    Morph Shadow’s Super Tattoo


    This week, I decided to complete the Super Tattoo assignment as a part of design week. However, instead of creating a tattoo that describes me as it states in the description of the assignment, I created one for my character Morph Shadow. Morph Shadow’s tattoo is very subtle and simple, …

    Reflective Designs


    I decided to start design week off with reading The Vignelli Canon by Massimo Vignelli. To begin his booklet, he explains the most important principles of design to him; semantic, syntactic and pragmatic. Semantics to Vignelli is the meaning behind the design. I think this is important as when artists …

    Week 5 Daily Creates


    Below my daily creates are embedded. I think my favorite daily create of this week was the “take tall pictures” one because it gave me the opportunity to use a photo I already have of a giraffe. What is more accurate for a “tall” picture than a giraffe?

    Two fears, …

    Morph Shadow’s Soundtrack


    For audio week, one of our assignments was to come up with an introduction for our characters. This was pretty hard for me to come up with as I could not get the Powerpuff Girls Introduction out of my head. All I could think about was relating Morph Shadow to …

    DS106 Super Radio


    Today (Monday, September 25th) I tuned into the DS106 radio station and participated in the live tweet-along. Honestly, I had no idea what to expect out of the show but it was more interesting than I thought it was going to be. When it first started, I felt like it …
