    Classical-Modern Mashup Tutorial


    This post may be only 3 stars (while the most video assignments are 4 or 5) but it’s time consuming if the internet does not want to corporate with you. After choosing to do this I assignment, I had to choose which song and music video I wanted to use. …

    Reading movies – an oxymoron?


    Reading movies is quite the oxymoron unless we are speaking of reading the scripts of movies (which we are not). To read a movie is to delve into the techniques put into the film making process that enhance the telling of the story.

    There is something about a well directed/well …

    Keep Calm and Make More Lines


    This daily create was pretty fun to make. Drawing lines was left behind when I started college and free time became scarce. It felt good to be able to just sit down and draw random lines to make a picture. Disney inspired my creation because they are a company that …

    The assignment was to take your favorite song and use a sound editing program, such as audacity, to make it 800% or so slower so that it may be unrecognizable (which I soon came to realize that whether it is unrecognizable or not it really depends on what song you …

    Dialing up to DS106


    This is what I believe the dial up tone would be when connecting to DS106 if we still had dial up! If you listen carefully, you may be able to make out words that relate to DS106!

    Week 2 Summary


    This week’s assignments were good and bad. I found that I came to a road block on coming up with ideas for the design assignments. I believe that some are not as good as I’d like them to be because of this. Although, as the saying goes, you are your …

    The Vignelli Canon


    The Vignelli Canon is an interesting read. He talks about what he thinks is important to graphic design work and then goes into different types of design.

    One of his first points made about what he thinks is important before starting any design work is semantics: doing research about the …

    No internet?


    What would you do if you woke up one morning and there was no internet?

    My favorite artist is Taylor Swift. She’s empowering and sings about real events and feelings that anyone can relate to. This is why I chose to create a GIF of one of her music videos for one of this weeks assignment.
