    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 has helped lighten the course load, so take note, DS106ers! Hands down, my favorite assignment this week was designing an alternate book cover! I am proud of how simple the design is and how the book title comes across loud and clear! A runner-up to that assignment was the DesignBlitz.…

    My cover grabs more attention!

    by
    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 already did this idea =] ), this one, and many programming books! I wanted to design something attention-grabbing, so I chose yellow as it stands out. Then I considered my next color and felt that purple would best suit because it is an opposite color. I wanted this cover to come…

    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 file, it was in a pdf format, so I learned some additional tips on converting files in Linux. For the few people that may be curious how this is done, I used a program called ImageMagick which has a fun command called convert. I ran into some issues but quickly resolved…

    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. One of the aspects of programming that I find enjoyable is all the different color combinations that terminal profiles have. I know to most people reading this, you will be like, “what is he talking about?” Hear me out tho; I see some people program on black and white screens…

    Design Decisions Rock!

    by
    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. I appreciate the consideration he talks about with complimentary colors. When using contrasting colors, you can use neutral colors to draw the viewer’s attention to a specific subject. His example of this was the Star Wars poster. Color plays a massive role in visual imagery. From pg 78 of The Vignelli…
