    Design Blitz


    I received this flyer after getting my COVID test and it reminded me of a lot of the flyers that I got sent home to show my parents in elementary school. It was really interesting to me to see that they would make such an important and informational piece …

    Week Six Thoughts


    Being honest, I understood that a lot of time, money, and energy go into the design of most products around us, but I always felt that it was such a waste. I had heard stories of medical companies spending so much money and time to ask people questions about a …

    Super Tattoo

    I have seen a few sketches and drawings very similar to this one and I have always felt that I resonate with it. I am a very caring and giving person and more times than you would expect, those qualities have come back to bite me in the …

    From Screen to Page

    I loved this assignment because I absolutely love this movie. I struggled a little with the organization of the panels and creation of the collage. I feel that if I was more knowledgable about software and what is available to me, this would have been a …

    I was really nervous to do this assignment, especially because I am constantly in a house with 10 people living in it, so there is so place of peace and quiet. I knew I would have to do this assignment in a closet whispering because the mic needed to be …

    For this assignment, I cheated a little because this is not my favorite song, but it is something I saw on TikTok. In the TikTok, a creator performed a piano cover to this song and it sounded absolutely amazing and like the perfect wedding song. Of …

    Week Four Thoughts


    Although most of my friends growing up were very into photography, with fancy cameras and Tumblr/VSCO pages, I was never very interested in it. I think it is because I have never been confident in myself or the things that I create. I felt that I couldn’t photograph anything main-stream …

    Week Three Thoughts
