    A Wolf In Sheeps Clothing


    Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

    For this assignment, I had to combine the logo of rivals. I decided to do Popeyes Chicken and Chick-fil-a. I began by getting a picture of both of their logos. Then, the photos were imported into Adobe Illustrator. I removed the P from Popeye’s …

    I’ve taken design courses in the past, so I am fairly familiar with it. The elements of design are:

    line color shape size space texture form contrast value typography symbols & metaphors balance rhythm unity & harmony

    Graphic design is purposeful planning that uses any combination of forms, pictures, words, …

    Daily Create – Week Six


    For my daily creates this week I did “bad art”, my favorite drink and international smile day. For “bad art” I took a stock photo of a corporate worker and pasted a party hat and birthday gift on top of it. I don’t really have a favorite drink, but I …

    Design Blitz


     This week we were assigned to do a design blitz. For the blitz we were supposed to take pictures of objects or ads, etc. that showed some element of design. For my photos I took pictures while I was at Marshalls and used some pictures that I already have in …

    Aspects of Design


    After looking through some of the suggested readings, I have come to the conclusion that design takes more space in our life than I had thought. Of course, everything has to be designed by someone, but I’m not thinking about it all of the time. When I’m eating my Frosted …

    You’re Invited!


    Parks and Recreation is one of my favorite sitcoms and so when I was trying to think of a fictional couple to create a wedding invitation for, Leslie and Ben came to mind. This design assignment is worth 3 stars and asks you to create a wedding invitation as if …

    Bark This Way


    I love correcting records, so this ds106 design assignment felt like it was right up my alley. For this 3 1/2 star assignment I needed to pick out some photos, personal or found photos, to use to create a “rad” collage for fictional album art.

    After digging through the cobwebs …

    Domestic Design


    The area of design in recent life. I personally love designing images and things like a website. Though I am an amateur I do enjoy practicing and learning new techniques. For example the elements of design and color patterns. Starting from the basics that may go over looked something as …

    Week 5 Summary


    For this week’s assignments I worked with audios along side my daily creates on twitter. I haven’t experimented a whole lot with audio, so I found these assignments fun and new.

    I first began with listening to a story and writing the blog Audio Story. I wrote about how …

    Music Mashup


    For this assignment I had to put two songs together into a conversation. I decided to do the songs Driver’s License by Olivia Rodrigo and Green Lights by Kyd the Band. To create this mashup I began by downloading the two songs and an instrumental version of Driver’s License. I …

    Audio Story


    I don’t listen to podcasts and audiobooks very often. I always forget how entertaining they can be. For this assignment, I listened to From Tree to Shining Tree.

    I think that the background sound effects, noises, and music adds a lot to the story. The music helps set the mood. …

    Week 5 Summary

    Image Found Here

    This week was all about audio!

    My first ds106 audio assignment involved reordering a musical I know. The idea was to either completely reverse the order from end to beginning, or to mix the songs around in an order of your choosing. I kind of did both. …

    Yappy Little Trees

    Not quite like this, but close enough.

    Bob Ross might be famous for his happy trees, but as this episode of Radiolab will tell you, the real things are more yappy than happy.

    First I just wanna say that I had no idea fungi and trees worked together to …

    Week 5 Daily Creates


    Today’s Daily Create asked us to replace the word “love” with Monty Python. I felt Rihanna’s We Found Love In A Hopeless Place was a great mashup for the peasant scene in Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I used an online meme creator to complete this one.

    Week Five Summary


    We had a pretty easy week with only a couple of assignments. We had to listen to either a live radio show or the Radio Lab story, 1-2 or 4 stars worth of audio assignments from the assignment bank and 3 daily creates.

    Daily Create – Week Five


    As usual, we had three daily creates for the week. I did a “Keep Calm and Carry On” poster remake, made a ransom note and sent someone to cool down the Earth. I used Google and links from the @ds106dc tweets to create my daily creates. For the poster, I …

    Assignment Bank – Audio


    For this weeks assignment bank, we had to choose an audio assignment worth four stars. I chose to do “Music Mashup”, where you pick two songs and make them into one. The hardest part was actually picking the songs I wanted to mashup. I would try a few different …

    One Wicked Remix


    For this #ds106 Listening Assignment you are supposed to reverse a musical. The question is whether you can change the narrative by doing so. I didn’t think the story would necessarily change that match from simply reversing the order of the songs, at least not for my chosen musical, Wicked. …
