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!
Vignelli Reflection Post
Animated Gif Assignments
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.
