    Week 6


    This week was a busy one once again. We were assigned ten stars worth of design assignments. I was able to get all ten stars with three assignments. We were told to look for some elements of design in the real world. We had to go out and find good …

    Flickr Design Blitz


    Our Digital Media professor asked us to go on a “Design Blitz” to find different advertisements and logos that showed good use of certain design elements. Here are mine:

    1. Space

    I chose this one as showing good use of space. The designers had only the space of the bottle …

    Name That Single


    This assignment was a pretty easy one. The instructions are to take any song you want and make a symbol for it. I chose the song STFU by Blackbear for my assignment. This assignment was worth two stars, which puts me at ten for the week. As I said before …

    Weekly Summary 06


    I know I say this every week, but I didn’t really have a lot of time this week. Maybe I’m just a busy person in general, and have a lot of other stuff to do, who knows. Anyway, instead of just complaining on how I don’t even have time to …

    My “DesignBlitz”


    Okay to start off, on a completely unrelated note, for some reason I really don’t like the word “Blitz”. Probably because I don’t like words that have a Z instead of an S, but I digress….

    Since I am always crunched on time, I did my “DesignBlitz” in one day …

    Motivational Poster


    With the country like it is, I may just move north. For this one, it’s pretty easy to find a motivational poster generator(I used http://diy.despair.com/)

    Triple rocktroll lyrics


    This one was fun. On the website, their example was a picture of nickleback, which made me the of their song “we all wanna be big rock stars”. I figured putting that on a picture of Elvis and attributing it to Bob Dylan would be pretty fun(and I was right). …

    Movie quote design assignment


    For my quote, I chose the classic one from Back to the Future, “we don’t need roads”, as those movies are probably my favorite. This one was pretty simple, just download a picture and slap on a quote. The hardest part was getting the text to show up on the …

    Don’t Break Your Back


    This is my response to the Motivational Poster assignment, worth 3 stars. I had to design a motivational poster with a picture and a quote. I used Inkscape. Actually putting this little project together was very easy. The hard part was deciding what to do. There were so many possibilities …

    Assignment Bank -Cartoon Head


    Hello again, assignment bank stuff again. I chose something simple to do again. This features my friend Brianna because really what would my life be if I didn’t make her into some gorgeous artwork. For this assignment we were to change the head of a person or animal into a …

    Assignment Bank – Good Ol’ Nostalgia


    Once again we were assigned to do assignment bank stuff (shocking, I know). Being the classic Kylie I am, I chose some simple ones to do because that’s just how my life is going right now and who I am as a person.

    For this assignment, we were to create …

    Trading Card


    This assignment was a fun one for me. The assignment was easy to follow, but was very time consuming. All I had to do was make a trading card for a movie, and the movie I chose was Mad Max Fury Road. This assignment was worth four and a half …

    What Single is This?


    For the assignment, Name That Single, the action was to “Create a design for a favorite song by using just simple designs and NO WORDS.” Which I wouldn’t think would be too hard to do. I have plenty of favorite songs, I thought. I thought wrong. It took me …

    DesignBlitz: Going on a Visual Rampage!


    I went on a DesignBlitz this week, I rode around on my unicycle taking pictures of examples of design in search of good use of the elements of design: space, shape, line, texture, color, form, value, type, symbols & metaphors, balance, rhythm, and unity. Here are some of the beautiful …

    Rocket Lan


    For this assignment, Event Advertising, we had to create a poster advertising an upcoming event. Since I already do this a lot, I thought I would just put a poster that I have already made for an upcoming event. You see, I am an “officer” of the KGB (K-State …

    New Logo’s


    I found this assignment on the ds106 website. The instructions were simple, create a simple logo for something. I could make a random logo for something fake, but I decided to upgrade the logo I had for my J.T. Blog & Design pages. The logo is shown above and is …

    Radio Show Ideas


    I have a great idea for an internet radio show that my classmates and I could do. The show would essentially just be about pop culture. It would be about things that us nerdy digital media students could talk about for days. This could include things like Star Wars, Doctor …

    What Andy Mckee’s “Drifting” Means to Me


    Assignment link: http://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/what-a-song-might-mean-to-you/

    This assignment asked me to record myself explaining what a song means to me. The part of this assignment that made me thing the most was deciding which song to talk about. I’m a music fanatic, so there’s a whole library of songs that are meaningful to …
