Des6n Week

This week seemed to have fewer assignments, but the ones I thought would be the simplest ended up taking me the longest! More on that later. I completed three Daily Creates (I did watch the video, but there were two already created that I really wanted to do, so I did not create my own). This one […]

Design in the Library

I walked around Simpson Library on campus, and was able to find alignment, hierarchy, contrast, proximity, and color on the first floor! See my entire post here, but I will add each picture individually on this post so I can talk about them! Alignment Each aisle in the library is equally spaced apart, giving it a clean […]

Winifred in a Cloud

This is the word cloud that I created to describe my character, Winifred Hart! I used colors that went well together (purple, blue, and green are next to each other on the color wheel), and picked a shape that would separate the words, but clearly become one larger image. This represents how all of these […]

Lost Hat

Information can be found on the poster! Please help find and return this hat. I found two things difficult about this assignment: creating a background image and determining the “last seen.” For the background, I ended up using a free Canva background that looked like lined paper. I then added a filter to make it […]

California Book Cover

The book cover I created for California is not too different from the original, but I think it tells a lot more about the plot than the forest that the real cover depicts. In my initial Canva search, I found many abandoned places. This one caught my eye because of the nature that the couple is […]

Winifred’s Place

I tried to base Winifred’s appearance loosely on the picture that I used for her on my previous post: The goal was to make her appear kind and approachable in order to match her friendly and loving personality. I placed Winifred in front of her house, which I also identified in my post introducing her. I […]

Talking to the End

After that frightening intro video (which I will refer to later), I created my character! I loved the archetype I submitted (The Lover, who still sees zombies as humans who can be saved), so I used it to create Winifred Hart. In this post I spent a lot of time trying to show how good she is. […]

Calming Sounds

For the final star, I created a short audio clip of calming sounds. I included beach waves and birds, which is what I immediately think of when I think of calming sounds. I also added some different instruments, including one that I have never heard of and cannot identify. I don’t have much to say […]

Finis Bus Ad

I scrolled through many audio assignments that had at least three stars until I found one that caught my eye: a fictional radio ad. I was immediately drawn to it because of the picture of Charlie Brown, and I loved the video! I decided to go with the theme of Magic School Bus, and the […]
