    by

    This week my group and I completed our radio show, The Joy of Music. The video for that is down below. This was an interesting process. I used a lot of Audacity and convertors which was nice because it was the same audio work we have already been doing, so …

    106 HORROR!

    by

    When I think of horror, I think of the killer in the shower trope. My first thought was to have 106 written in bloody letters, but that seemed kind of basic. I found this picture online of a serial killer shower curtain that makes it look like someone is in …

    Who Runs The World?

    by

    Money. Money runs the world. BUT so girls, specifically women, specifically Beyonce.

    For this assignment, to mess around with money, I decided to replace the white man currently on the bill with someone more relevant, more prophetic…Beyoncé! I used Photoshop to remove the original face, but keep the same frame. …

    Shouldn’t Be Shocking

    by

    This assignment asked us to combine two images in order to create a shocking message. For me a shocking message is anything that causes controversy. My message is that breasts are not inherently sexual. I chose an image of a woman who is consensually showing her breasts and then found …

    Radio Show Bumper

    by

    For our second audio assignment, I made the intro bumper for our radio show. I used an 8 second snippet from one of my favorite songs, Get you by Daniel Caesar ft. Kali Uchis. I converted the youtube video to an MP3 file and used Audacity to clip the song …

    Radio Show Promo

    by

    For my promo for our DS106 radio show, I wanted the design to align with my groupmates’ designs. I also went simple with the design and color scheme. I feel that the monochrome catches the eye without being too overwhelming and the image is super easy to recognize and a …

    Balance:

    The symmetry of the spoons on this cereal, juxtapose the different grains that are being held very well. The spoons are all facing the same way and the distance apart, but they have things in their spoons that are falling out and that all look different. Yet, they are …

    Pop Culture Venn Diagram

    by

    There are so many cool design assignments and I couldn’t pick, so I did the random option and this assignment is what I landed on! The pop culture diagram calls for listing three traits and then putting a character who is all three in the middle and finding characters who …

    Simple, but detailed logo

    by

    When I saw this assignment, it reminded me of something I saw once. Someone I followed on Instagram from high school was asking if anyone could make a “snow sports inspired” logo for his podcast on winter sports. This was a few years ago and I could not find anything …

    A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing

    For this assignment, I decided to do the A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing assignment! I couldn’t stop laughing when I saw the image of the Burger King logo, but with McDonalds instead. I decided to take a stab at it and came up with BinGoogle! I thought of two competitors …

    Everything not made by nature

    by

    Design is everywhere. Every little thing has some sort of look to it. In reading the assigned articles, I am starting to see more and more how design plays a role. Apps have designs, websites, food, clothes…..! “Everything not made by nature” as said in Kidd’s book.

    Figuring out what …

    Audio Storytelling

    by

    Audio is a medium that I struggle with. Visuals make me feel like my story is not being misunderstood. I feel that sometime it is easier to have visuals with no audio, but harder to have audio with no visual. But, audio can also tell some great stories when done …

    Earth

    by

    I decided to re-mix one of the photo assignments! Instead of doing grass or the ground, I did the sky with some clouds. I decided that a sky is just as much part of the earth. I found an HD picture of the sky, one without too many clouds, so …

    Georgie was watching his paper boat glide down the little stream the rain had created along the lines of the road. He chased after it, yellow rain boots and coat sticking out like a sore thumb. His boat turned suddenly. Georgie gasped, he saw an open sewer tunnel …

    It’s a hard life being a pepper.

    Everyone wants to use you, regardless of season

    To some people you belong on a pizza

    and to others salads

    Some even use you as a substitute for bread

    You have so many uses

    But you just want to be alone

    Same story, different link

    by

    Stories have shape. The diagram Vonnegut drew when explaining his made-up story really made me think about how many different mediums and sizes stories have. Some stories start in the future, some stories change time, place, and even universes. When comparing this to the Szumer’s piece and the video on …
