This was a difficult week for me. Lots of work to do along with working full time and taking another class. It seems like I spend most of my waking hours thinking about digital storytelling. I’m enjoying the class, it is just time consuming. That being said, I have learned so many new things this week and that is what a class is for so I know all the work is worth while.
I read the Vignelli Cannon, it was interesting, but I wonder if the rules he states are still pertinent in the digital age. I have to admit, it was hard to read and I had to walk away from it several times in order to clear my head. Here is my post on this reading.
Next I watched Double Indemnity it was an interesting film, but I have to admit that I laughed out loud at some of the dialog. It just seemed a little corny. Here is my post for the movie.
This week we learned a lot about design. The design blitz was fun, I didn’t realize how much our surroundings are designed and not just happenstance. Here is my Design Blitz project.
I did my 4 Daily Creates, here they are.
I worked on my 12 stars, I struggled a little, but that was only my lack of reading the directions in their entirety.
Next we learned about Copyright & Creative Common. Here is that blog post.
I am not prepared at this time to submit my design ideas, but I definitely appreciate the reminder.
