    Weekly Summary: WEEK SIX

    by

    Week six is probably my favorite week. This week was the most challenging, but I also had a lot of fun at the same time. The program I used for this week was GIMP. GIMP is an alternative to Photoshop. Since I cancelled the Adobe membership a few years ago, …

    My first daily create was on Monday, and it was to create an iceberg here and see how it would float. I drew a pineapple and it ended up floating to the side. I tweeted 2 pictures showing the before and after.

    The first participation for the daily creates was to design an iceberg to see how it would float. At first, I had no idea what to draw, but then eventually came up with the idea of doing a letter that looked like another letter. I drew the letter H that …

    Apocalypse

    by

    As a sci-fi/fantasy fan, an apocalyptic world is one I a familiar with. From anarchy and rebellion to the end of the world itself, it is a concept that drives many dystopian or thriller type novels and shows. The prompt asked me to use a certain hero creator to make …

    Week Six Summary

    by

    This week was interesting to say the least. I think the most enjoyable part about this week was watching the youtube videos and listening to how graphic design is really an art form and a science and writing a commentary on Kidd’s work. I enjoyed the design blitz and it …

    Motivational Poster

    by

    Okay so this isn’t a motivational poster. I lied. It’s more a fun little twist I put on it because I wanted to. I used Photoshop to compile the picture, frame, and text all together. Enjoy the finished product.…

    Missing Persons Report

    by

    Instead of reporting a fictional character or just one person, I included both my girlfriend and I! I made most of the characteristics a bit of a joke, but overall please find her and I. I used Photoshop to compile all the characteristics and photo. I also just realized I …

    Design Thoughts

    by

    My initial thoughts design were basically non existent. I never thought about what went behind designing for public consumption. The article and short book made me think harder about what goes on around me. I liked what Vignelli said that design requires discipline in order for the whole product to …

    Book Cover for a Digital Storytelling Apocalypse

    by

    I tried to make this book cover seem all eerie and mysterious using Photoshop to put drop shadow and text onto this google images dystopian photo, but I don’t think I did too hot. I have no clue what I meant when I typed “nobody cared until the bells rang”, …

    For this design assignment I used photoshop to color the t-shirt black and put the text and picture onto the shirt. I think the final product came out well, and I just had to put the classic Star Wars Anakin and Obi-Wan quote on there, I couldn’t resist.…

    Design Blitz

    by

    I walked around campus for about half an hour trying to find some good design elements of buildings or the pavement that I could find, but instead I thought, “why don’t I use every day items that I see in my room?” So I went back to my dorm room …

    Kidd Design

    by

    My brother used to be heavily interested in graphic design when he was in high school and I remember him explaining a ton of these concepts to me, being a young middle schooler who’s got no clue what he was talking about. I think the notion that “the best solution …

    Leo the Lion

    This is the story of Leo the lion. He had his marvelous fur, a gorgeous mane, and an even more fabulous island. People would come far and wide to see Leo on top of his luxurious castle, but not one person dare step foot on the land. For if you …

    Create a Magazine Cover

    by

    I used Vogue and GQ as inspiration for this magazine cover. However, I couldn’t do as good of a job as professional designers.

    You’re Invited to My Wedding

    by

    My last assignment bank was Wedding Invitation and I had to create a wedding invitation for my “wedding.” I used Canva to create my wedding invitation and I thought it turned out well. If I was actually getting married, I would probably just buy wedding invitations, I don’t think I …
