    The design blitz was hard because I had to find things around my house that illustrated these concepts. That being said, because everything that is designed, was designed to be that way for some reason, I was able to find some great examples. These shelves are a good example of …

    Design Thoughts


    I learned a lot from this article. Many every day things that we all use frequently, such as signs, had to be designed at some point. I think that the fact that we sometimes forget how much thought goes into designing things like these, makes it evidently clear how important …

    From Tree to Shining Tree


    I am not one to typically listen to podcasts, but this week has opened my eyes to how neat they can really be! The ability to tell a story with just audio is very difficult but their use of ambient and background noises throughout the podcast made it feel very …

    I am developing an idea for a radio show. I was inspired by one of the audio assignments we had the option of choosing from this week. The assignment is one I completed, in which I reversed the audio of the song and listeners are supposed to guess the song. …

    Photo Reflection


    I have absolutely zero experience with photography. This is an exaggeration of course because as we all have smart phones now, or with the existence of apps such as snapchat, taking pictures is something we do quite frequently. I personally do not take many photos, and I never have. It …
