    Week 14 Summary

    This semester in DS 106 has come to an end. For my final project, I decided to create a recruitment style project in an attempt to get new secret agents for DS 106 in the Fall of 2019. My idea for my project came from emails with Professor Bond and a blog post from a current classmate. My final project was a three-part assignment. For our final project we were required to use at least three different medias of design we have become familiar with this semester. I chose to incorporate graphic design, audio, and video. To connect all my forms of media into my final project, I wrote a…

    Week 13 Progress Post

    For the final project for this week I’m thinking of doing a recruitment style project. For this project we are required to use three forms of media. To complete this recruitment style project, I plan on using the media forms video, audio, and design. However, when spies are recruited, they don’t respond to a flyer in the newspaper or a call in because of a commercial they heard on the radio, spies are strategically and secretly recruited. As a result, the video audio and design projects will be sent secretly to the previously decided future secret agents our DS 106 agency has already approved. The audio recording will be used…

    Week 12 Summary

    Another week has come to an end in DS 106…kind of. I finished all my work for the week on Sunday since the mashup assignments were all relatively easy. This week I relied heavily on graphic design to complete the various assignments. My main tool for graphic design was Canva. Canva is a user friendly, easily accessible, graphic design website. I have talked about Canva in previous weeks and it’s probably one of the best tools I have learnt how to use this semester. This week we had to complete 10 stars of Mashup Assignments. The assignments I chose were a superhero in everyday life design, holiday mashup, and logo…

    Mission Remix

    So for the mission remix assignment, I think it would be fun to do an audio/image based assignment. As much difficulty as I had with video assignments these past two weeks, I think it would be important to incorporate the skills we all learned here as well. Based on what mission we agree on, the assignment could be making a video of the mission. Either a digital act-out of it or a real-life recording. We would each play our secret agent character in this video idea. If we were to focus on the audio/image idea, then it would be a little different. The focus would be on using applications like…

    Remix 2

    For this remix assignment, I remixed the Superhumans in everyday life assignment. The remix required me to add Where’s Waldo into one of my assignments. To make this assignment, I used my original Superhumans in everyday life assignment design. I opened the image in Canva and then added a picture of Waldo I downloaded onto my computer.

    Remix 1

    For this remix assignment, I used a graphic design assignment I made earlier in this semester. I hit the remix button for the Logo Switch up Assignment. The remix told me to use any previous assignment and to just make the text hard to read, add unnecessary or random images, etc. This is my final result! To add all these random images and change the text, I used Canva again. I just scrolled through their selection of images and uploaded random ones. I changed the text as well to make it a little bit more difficult to read.

    Logo mashup

    For this assignment, I had to combine two logos into one logo. I chose Target and Urban Outfitters. I used the main red target for Target and then the basic print name for Urban Outfitters. It was really easy to create this graphic. I simply downloaded the two companies’ logos to my computer and then used the graphic design website, Canva, to mashup the two logos.

    Holiday Mashup

    For this assignment, I had to make a mashup of images from my three favorite holidays. I decided to use a Christmas tree for Christmas, champagne glasses for New Years, and a turkey for Thanksgiving. This assignment was really easy to create. I used Canva again to edit all the images together and then downloaded the image onto my computer.

    Superhuman in everyday life

    For this assignment I had to insert a picture of a superhero into a normal day picture. I inserted a picture of Wonder Woman into a picture of a lifeguard stand at a beach. To create this image, I used the graphic design website, Canva. I made the background image a picture of the beach and then inserted a picture of Wonder Woman. I have used Canva a lot for assignments in this class and it is super easy and user friendly!
