Weekly Summary 2

To be honest, this week has been a bit overwhelming. I made the mistake of thinking that I had more time than I actually did. But I am thankful that I was able to complete all of the assignments.

I started by reading through all of the assignments for the week. I began looking into the resources provided about design.

I liked reading Vignelli Canon as it was interesting and a quick read, here is my blog post about my thoughts on what I learned from it:

For the Design Blitz, I gathered a handful of photos that fit the design concepts, but I narrowed it down to a few.

Honestly, I struggled to make GIFs at first. I have always seen them everywhere, but I have never really got into making my own, mostly because I didn’t know how. But now I do! Here are my two Animated GIF Assignments:

I made comments this week on some of my classmates’ blog posts and tweets!

I commented on Bree’s “That’s Not What I Expected” blog post:

I commented on Kaylie’s “Kartoon Kaylie” blog post and tweet:

This week, I have been trying to add more to my posts, such as adding more pictures, GIFs, and other forms of media. I also wish to strengthen the stories that go along with my blog posts.

Something this week that I would do differently would be making the tutorials. I wish that I had remembered to take screenshots as I’m making all of the edits and designs. If only I had remembered, I wouldn’t have to do it twice! Overall, I hope to continue improving myself in those areas.

  1. I agree with your first paragraph. This class is like a full-time job that makes you work nights and weekends as well. That being said, it is a fun class and I am learning a lot!
