    Radio show progress


    Going into the week I was a little nervous about the radio show. I joined a group a little late and thankfully I knew someone in it so it was easy to get in contact with my other group members after that. I joined because I had actually suggested crime …

    Radio Show Design


    For the radio show I decided to make a logo. This is blown up but I think in the corner of a web page or something just where it was smaller it would look better. The website that I used for this was Canva which was easy to figure out. …

    The first design element I chose was a symbol. This is my tattoo on my left wrist of two interlocking hearts. The two interlocking hearts symbolize a lot to me personally. For me they mean that our hearts are forever connected. I liked the tattoo a lot but I also …

    Storytelling through pictures


    I am a thrower on the UMW varsity Track and Field team and sports play a big role in my life. I was trying to find pictures of my progression through sports but it was hard to find them from the earlier years so I just focused on track. I …

    Decorate the UMW rock


    When I saw this assignment I thought it was perfect because last year my friend and I actually did this in the middle of the night so I didn’t have to photoshop anything since we spray painted it. The process involved going to walmart late at night to buy some …

    The second creative assignment I chose for this week was to create a tshirt so I took this opportunity to make an 80’s themed shirt. I knew I wanted to make a collage of a bunch of 80’s logos because if I just chose one logo I know that this …

    Read and Reflect


    One of the big things that stuck out to me after reading the article interviewing designed Chip Kidd was when he said “Whether you realize it or not, most of the decisions you make, every day, are by design” and “Everything that is not made by nature is designed by …

    Sound effects


    The second assignment bank prompt I chose was “Sound effects” which asks you to upload your own sound to freesound.org. Preferably one that hasn’t been done before. This one was challenging because I really had to think of an uncommon sound which took me a while. Every sound …

    Grocery Store Trip


    Trying to think of a story to make with sound effects was hard, the first thing I thought of was waking up routine but that was listed as something not to do. I made this while eating dinner and I thought what better thing to do then a trip to …

    Daily Creates #2


    Today I created a “smelfie”. I didn’t want to make a map per say of what I was smelling but these are the scents I smelt while laying in my bed this morning before class. I don’t think we always just stop, close our eyes, and appreciate the warm smells …

    Moon Graffiti


    After listening to Moon Graffiti created by The Truth Podcast I am even more on board but also kind of amazed and creeped out by these radio stories. From the beginning you get a good sense of the setting because of the voice effect, they are talking over a radio …

    Ds106 Radio


    Tonight I tuned into the Ds106 to listen in and I was truly shocked and in awe of what I heard. Jad Abumrad was right when he said that just with sounds and descriptions someone can paint a vivid picture in your mind. When listening about the encounters in the …

    Prior to this class I had used audacity a handful of times so I thought I had the swing of it. Well I was wrong, I couldn’t figure out how to make the background sound less intense and quieter than my recording so I had to be kind of loud …

    Colorize It


    For my third assignment I chose colorize it which wanted you to take a picture youve already taken and change the colors in it to seem more unrealistic. I used the app “Color Pop” which I downloaded off the apple store on my iPhone. The app was okay, it dd …

    The first assignment that I chose for this week was one that was combining two images together. I decided to put an 80’s theme twist on this and combined two 80’s prints. I thought that this assignment would go well with the 80’s twist because the first thing that came …
