Spring Break Is In Sight! #WeeklySummary #DS106

Hello DS106! I am here with my weekly summary to share with you, this week we focused on design. Above I have embedded all of my posts for the week including our original prompt post from our Professor with instructions for this week. I have to say that at first, I was not sure if I was going to enjoy this week or not. I ended up really liking design, I enjoy designing and decorating interior spaces. As a Communication & Digital Studies major, I have an interest in PR or marketing so studying and analyzing designs of posters, signs, and products were fun. I started off the week with a reading and then making a blog post about my thoughts on design. I then worked on a design blitz, this is where we were asked to take four pictures and post them on Instagram also making a blog post discussing what the product in the photo exampled from design characteristics. I focused on symbolism, minimalism, color, and balance and found that all but one of my examples was effective. I then completed 12 stars of assignment bank activities where I got to create a poster, postcard, a billboard, and then I wrote my name creatively. As always I also created daily creates this week. I was assigned to make four of them instead of our normal number of three. I got to post about my guilty secret, I created a new agent, a kind gesture, and I got to make an old photo look even older. This week was really busy but I feel that I have gotten a good grasp of design and the thought that goes into it. I have enjoyed reading everyone’s blog; have a great weekend!
