    There’s A Murder Afoot


    Tune in soon to Radio7’s new thriller, featured exclusively on DS106Radio! Our group is diligently working behind the scenes this week to script a fun and exciting story filled with twists and turns.

    My thoughts behind this design were to create a clean yet eye-grabbing poster, and I decided …

    Y’all ready for this?


    The radio show plans are in motion! Our group will have a fun and exciting radio show in the next few weeks.

    After having some great ideas at a meeting last night, we decided to write a murder mystery-styled podcast. It will revolve around the sudden death of a famous …

    This semester has broken the sound barrier!


    I can’t believe we’re headed into week seven already. I liked this week, and so far this semester, I have discovered that I like the audio and digital designs more than writing.

    I did all of my daily creates over the weekend and Monday. Getting those out of the way …

    Eagles, Start Your Cameras!


    Looking around town tonight, I saw quite a lot of things that I thought fit well for this assignment!

    Color: I thought this skirt was a good example of bright colors that pop due to the black background. Typography: This sign had some attractive font that evokes some animalistic qualities.…

    My cover grabs more attention!


    For this assignment, I was told to design an alternate book cover. However, I am loosely following it because I felt that the book’s title was pretty hard to interpret as anything other than what it says. Also, my choices of immediate books near me were The Hobbit (someone

    Today’s assignment was fun! I was able to apply the idea of using a limited color palette to a poster design and help advertise for the school’s Cybersecurity club! PS… you should join!

    I made the poster using Canva, which has been helpful this semester! When I downloaded the …

    If at first you don’t succeed


    The assignment I am talking about is this one! I noticed that some people said they could not see my tags on my blog posts, and after some time, I could not resolve this issue, so this is how I will let you all know what assignments I have completed.…

    Design Decisions Rock!


    Man, where to start? That was a lot of information! The video posted by Vanity Fair had so many great ideas. I was amazed when the presenter showed so many posters of similar design, and he provided great details into how the movie poster’s messages are conveyed to the viewer. …

    Wooohoooo!!! I finished the week!


    This week was fun, and I think the essential key to success is to do assignments you like!

    My daily creates are linked below. My favorite one was about connecting peace, love, and Kaleidoscopes visually.

    A great way to connect peace, love, and Kaleidoscopes visually is with the imagery of …

    The organ is a challenging instrument!


    This assignment is one that I have made up myself! I have been learning to play the piano and church organ since returning to college full time in my spare time! I think this is a fantastic hobby for several reasons. I am learning a skill and putting my extra …

    I Hear a Storm a Comin’


    Brainstorming has always been something a bit challenging for me. I think of projects I would like to complete but often find I set the bar too high none the less I would like to try a few different ideas. Keeping in touch with this class’s theme, “The Joy of,” …

    Boom Goes the Dynamite


    Jad Abumrad made many excellent points when talking about the advantages of audio compared to visual art. I connected with the statement he made, “[Talking about audio storytelling] In a sense, I’m painting something, but I’m not holding the paintbrush you are!” This statement exemplifies what I think is so …

    Good Morning @ds106 !!!


    So it should be very apparent where I drew my inspiration for this assignment. If it is not, please watch this movie, Good Morning, Vietnam! I had fun making this intro, although to say it put me outside my comfort would be an understatement.
    I hope that this brought …

    Another one bites the dust!


    Whew, I’m glad this week is almost over, but it seems like the assignments are neverending this semester!
    This week was fantastic, I like working with all the photos, especially over the writing topic, but there seems to be a lot of that in these posts.

    The thing I enjoyed …

    A rush to find them all!


    This was a creative assignment! It really put me in a rush to find all the subjects I needed to photograph and get the proper lighting and angles while not trying to be a perfectionist.

    So I grabbed my list and set the timer. Away I went!

    The photos appear …

    A picture is worth a thousand words or A moment in time.


    The article linked to this assignment was an exciting read. I found inspiration from the tip that said to take a picture from multiple perspectives. More importantly, it states that it helps to change your perspective as the photographer. I think this rule can be applied to life in general.…

    Did I make a typo?


    Hey everyone! I hope you all are having a wonderful week. This assignment was fun; I got to use a new online-based tool, and I like using those because they are a bit more approachable for beginners.
    The idea of this assignment was to find pictures online and upload them …

    This was a fun little diversion!


    I had a good chuckle reading the description for this assignment! Editing software is a little frustrating, but I know that it is part of the process of learning!
    For this assignment, I was told not to use editing software and to take a panoramic picture instead with a cell …

    Let’s all party like it’s 1699!


    This was a fun assignment! I got to listen to some music I hadn’t heard in a long time, and I learned another neat trick with editing GIFs. The project asked me to find a musician I like and make a GIF of one of their music videos.

    I wanted …

    Is the Internet for anything other than animal videos?


    I was tasked with finding videos of animals doing funny things and converting them to a GIF for this assignment. The process was simple once I found a good source for some videos.

    I started by using a program called youtube-dl, but I was unsuccessful with that method. YouTube makes …

    “A picture is worth a thousand words”


    I have some experience taking photos, but it has been a long time since I have tried to perfect my technique. I remember in high school a photography class, and my favorite part was developing the film. I thought the process had a magical quality (minus the smell).

    Now I …

    I learned a lot this week! – Weekly Summary


    This week was busy as usual for me, but I got it all done! Go me! I tried to approach this week by getting the daily creates out of the way first. My favorite of those assignments was to develop a decorative letter for my first name. I used Gimp …

    Writers’ Block and the Problem of Where to Start


    This week I have tried to think of various approaches to and on what I would like to do for the final project. I am still undecided at the moment, but I know that I want it to focus on something technology-related! Another aspect I would like to incorporate into …
