    The best way to learn and develop a skill for design is to first become conscious of a good design when you see it. Then to evaluate and analyse what makes this design “good.” What is the design trying to communicate? Pay attention to the details, because the more details …

    One of my tasks for this week was to do a DesignBlitz. I had to find 6 good examples of design elements and 2 bad ones.

    Here’s the good ones:

    I thought this poster I recently created has a good use of line.

    This is a part of the typeface …

    A Wolf In Sheeps Clothing


    For this assignment I was tasked with combining two rival companies logos. I’m a fan of Microsoft and I’m against almost anything Apple makes so I thought it’d be a good idea to mash the two logos together. It makes Apples logo look a little better.…

    PSA Billboard


    For this assignment I was tasked with creating a billboard addressing something that aggravates me about people, society or the world. I thought this would be a great excuse to let people know that just throwing trash out the window of your car isn’t cool and they should wait to …

    Design Readings Reflection


    Design is a topic that I like very much. The great thing about design is that there are so many ways to use it. Everyone has their own way of designing and their own ideas to bring to life. Understanding the elements of design is also important if you’re trying …

    Week 6 Summary


    I found the information and resources on design to be interesting. I didn’t realize so much went into making a good design for something. After reading some of those articles I do appreciate more all the work that artists and designers put into their work. I read the 10,000 hour …

  7. @Michael63961786



    I read some articles and watched a few videos on some aspects of design and I was impressed by everything that goes into design. I would not be able to keep all the information in mind while designing something. Even choosing the right colors is more complicated than I would …

    “They have a Cave Troll”


    Directions: ” Take one of your favorite movies or scene from a movie and tell the story using sound effects! There can be no verbal communication, only sound effects! Record your own sounds, use audacity, or use websites that have pre-recorded sounds for you to download to create your audio …

    Where am I?


    Directions: ” For this assignment create a place by just using sound. For example, make the listener know where they are if outside use birds, cars, etc. You can get sounds from https://freesound.org “

    Behind the Story:

    Can you figure out where I am?

    Week 5 Summary


    I tried listening to the podcast, but when I pressed the play button nothing happened. I also got multiple warnings from my browser that the site was not secure so I didn’t want to spend much time on that site. I found the radio broadcasts to be very interesting. I …

    Week 5 Summary(Audio)


    This week was on audio and it was better than I thought it was going to be. I’ve never really made anything on audio software before so this was out of my comfort zone. But it surprised me how fun it ended up being to create little sound clips.

    Quote with a New Feeling


    For this assignment I chose to do the recording of a quote then add background music to it.

    Radio Show Ideas


    -Interact live with the live-tweets do Q&A 80’s themed (What character would you play in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off? etc).

    80’s Trivia. If it’s trivia over songs, we could play the correct answer(song) after the question is over.

    -We could do a drama set in the 80’s. Maybe the reenactment …

    American Life Radio


    I listened to the lady vanishes and ICBM Nuclear Missile Close Call. I found both of those stories to be interesting. I’ve heard of David Copperfield but I’ve never heard of him making the statue of liberty disappear. It ruins some of the magic once you actually know how the …

    Played from Another Room


    For this assignment I took the song Fine and Mellow by Etta Jones and created it to sound like you were walking by a club where the performance was taking place.

    As I am listening to “The Lady Vanishes,” I notice how the music is not constant and that it changes from section to section. I think they do this to help keep this story from sounding static and stale. It helps set the mood and creates interest. It also helps …

    A Sound Effects Story


    For this assignment I used freesounds.org to supply the sound effects for my story. It was fun mixing two or more sounds to play at the same time to help create the story better and less choppy. Also using fade out was very helpful.

    DS106 Radio Bumper


    Here is my ds106 radio bumper I made using Adobe Audition and the audio library on YouTube. I have never really played around with an audio editor before. It was very similar to a video editor so thankfully there wasn’t much of a learning curve to it.

    Week 4 Summary


    I thought the video on Annie Leibovitz was interesting. I’ve never heard of her before watching it. Even though she is a celebrated photographer I thought her photos looked awkward, but I guess I’m no expert on photography. It was a delight to see some photos from the 80’s to …
