This week on The Dark Times: daily creates, design assignments, a design blitz, some thought on copyrights and films, and a reflection on The Vignelli Canon.
Throughout the week we were to finish at least 3 daily creates, doing so I did Monday- Wednesday: Draw a David…That David, Make Creative Hands, and What’s Your Super Power?. We were also to carry around a camera a capture examples of different design concepts, the result is the Design Blitz.
This week I completed 15pts of assignments though only 12 were needed, 6 pts being dedicated to my character, Shadow. I created Exquisite Corpse (4pts) and Laptop Lingo (2pts) for fun and Bad Guy Business Cards (2pts), Bumper Sticker (3.5pts), and Cartoon You (3.5pts) for Shadow.
We were also to create a separate blog post on The Vignelli Canon, Double Indemnity, and thought on the copyright laws. The Vignelli Canon was written be a famous graphic designer, it is intended to help designers understand the complexity of design, here is the Vignelli Reflection. My roommate and I created a movie night to watch Double Indemnity because why not, the following is the thoughts of the idea of design and noir combined, Movie Reflection. Lastly, is my thoughts on the ideas of ownership and copying, Copyright Laws blog.
This week on The Dark Times we had to do 2 daily creates and so I did 3. I did Monday through Wednesday and had a lot of fun editing each picture.
This week we also had to think up some ideas for a radio show, I didn’t have to many since there is only so much you can do with sound. We also had to reflect on different audio storytelling techniques (different musics, sound effects, etc).
Luckly we did get to do more fun stuff other then analyzing audio storytelling, we had to create a radio bumper for the ds106 radio, and a bunch more audio assignments. We had to complete at least 8 points worth therefore I did 911 What’s Your Emergency? (3.5pts), Imitate Some Weather (1.5pts), Favorite Song (1.5pts), and Sound Effect Story (3.5pts).
All the audio editing was done on audacity.
