    What a Week 6


    Who doesn’t like a Safari? Especially when your goal is to take pictures! The approach I took to this design safari was looking at all the examples and thinking in the back of my head where I have seen these in my everyday life. I thought I would take …

    The design techniques I chose to hunt down and capture were: Typography, Color, Symbols, and Minimalism.

    Typography is basically using different fonts to appeal and get certain messages across. While at the stat fair of VA with my mom I was walking around thinking about examples of …

    What Song?


    I picked this design assignment because I love music. I picked one of my favorite songs that is by a female country singer (hint). Even though I don’t think I am that good at drawing, I tried my best and since it is one object that describes the song, I …

    Geek Tattoo


    I knew I had to do this design assignment when I saw that it was about creating a tattoo. I love tattoos and I have one of my own so far. What made this even better is when I saw we had to tie in what we’ve learned about design …

    Rainbow Fish!


    My favorite childhood book wasn’t the average one. I fell in love with the Rainbow Fish series. My mom and dad would read them to me until I learned how to read and then they had to sit through me reading it to them! I had drawn a picture of …

    ______ On Board!


    Mostly everyone has seen the classic Baby on Board car bumper/windshield sticker. Here is an example: 

    As soon as I saw the description: Design a Bumper Sticker, I wasn’t sure of what to do. Randomly in my head came an image of the baby on board sign that I …

    A Whole New World


    This assignment I choose because it hits a little close to home, not the assignment itself but the place I chose to represent that I have never gone before. If you can’t tell by the picture I chose Thailand. Even though it was way before I was born, my father …

    We Want You!


    When I think of WWII propaganda, I immediately think of the Uncle Sam’s “I want you” for recruiting soldiers. So of course when I saw this in the redesigning posters post on week 6, I thought of that right away and had it planned out what I wanted to …

    Unlikely Intersection (2 1/2 stars)


    This was such a good idea when I saw it…..not when it was time to execute it! I figured with as many funny roads I have around where I live, such as Beaverdamn, Cuckoo’s nest, Pottysville, etc. That I would have fun with this, however being that I live in …
