    Motivation

    by

    This poster I made speaks to me as I have taken a strange route to get to where I am at. I was always into sports and more physical tolling things growing up and I think that has helped me stay mentally strong. One thing I was never involved in …

    March 3, 2021. This is Charlemagne resting in a nook just behind my chair in the kitchen. It’s a place where he can be secure but close to where things are happening. Today was day 2 of the furnace issues, but I think we have them sorted out. Otherwise, I…

    Week Six Summary

    by

    Only week six? Not even double digits?! That’s crazy to me and I am slowly falling behind in my work and seeing a little bit of burnout. I think this is a little evident in the work for this class, but I still really enjoy all of the work I …

    Form/Function/Message

    I received this flyer after getting my COVID test and it reminded me of a lot of the flyers that I got sent home to show my parents in elementary school. It was really interesting to me to see that they would make such an important and informational piece …

    Week Six Thoughts

    by

    Being honest, I understood that a lot of time, money, and energy go into the design of most products around us, but I always felt that it was such a waste. I had heard stories of medical companies spending so much money and time to ask people questions about a …

    Motivation!

    by

    For this assignment I took a basic silhouette picture off the web and added a little quote to create the poster! Motivation often comes in simple one liners for a lot of people and that’s what this poster aims to capture. See it and get going! …

    Going Famous!

    For this assignment out of the design principles section, I chose to create a cover for VOGUE magazine. I did this before I saw that on the homepage there was a recently added “Vogue Challenge” assignment. So I’m keeping it here for old times sake! I was inspired to do …

    Tri Force Magazine

    by

    For this assignment, I needed to create a magazine cover for whatever topic I wanted. I previously stated how much I enjoyed Nintendo on the second week of class, but I thought it was fair to bring it up again. I loved playing Nintendo games and still do, the Zelda …

    This is my Design Blitz assignment for this week.

    This photo represents unity as all the individual elephants are the same shape and size, but together they make something much bigger. There is a sense of wholeness and unity because they are all touching.

    What a Wonderful Design

    by

    This post is about what I learned from this weeks readings. I learned how color can focus the viewer on what is important. For instance, a white background allows the view to focus in on the objects or people in the photo, given there is little background distractions. Color can …

    Contradiction Creation

    by

    For this visual assignment, I literally sat, staring out my window while I worked and wished I was outside. The last few times I was off and planned to go anywhere, it was raining. We were instructed to create a contradicting graphic that was somewhat “anti-motivational”. I honestly hate being …
