Week 2

This week was definitely a little more challenging than the first.  But I did learn a lot of new things.  I think that I completed the assignments pretty well for the most part.  The only things that gave me trouble were creating the Gifs.  I have a lot to learn with them, but I believe I can get the hang of it.  I really enjoyed making the “suspect board” assignment.  I had a lot of fun with that.  My mind wandered and I got creative.  If I could do anything over again, it would definitely be the Gifs.  The only outside issue of this week was that for a little, I thought my computer had gotten a virus because it was acting up.  But it is alright as I’m writing this now!

I learned a lot about design, and graphic design this week.  Especially through the Vignelli reading and the design blitz.  There is so much more than just drawing a picture on a piece of paper or whatever you draw on.  I think this will influence the way I look at digital/visual storytelling in the future.  I’ll question the artist’s thinking and process. Design is a big part of visual storytelling and it takes time and practice.
