M I R U – animated gif assignment –

Well hello again. It’s Friday. Oh yes. Animated gifs…my worst nightmare. Once again, I had so much trouble with this crap. I downloaded VLC to help me obtain the frames from the video and it wasn’t working because (J’m assuming) I didn’t give it admin…but like heck I will because I don’t know if this program is corrupted and what…

IT’S THE FINAL COUNTDOWN. One of our main assignments this week was to go around and take pictures of objects or ads that demonstrate the concepts we read over the week. I was unable to take my camera to work, but I was able to go out today and get a few things I felt were usable for this! The…

congrats – design assignment –

Oh look! Another Pidge inspired design. For today’s design assignment, I chose a fun one; creating a motivational poster. I wanted to originally do something sarcastic or “meme-ful” but alas…I’m not feeling any sarcasm rolling out of my brain and last night was filled with Voltron binging. So, here’s some Pidge instead. As to why I chose Pidge…I love her…

precious pidge – the daily create –

Well happy Thursday to you all! Today’s daily create was a cute yet traumatic one…considering I’ve cracked my phone 3 times. #DS106 #TDC2005 i feel no shame… pic.twitter.com/FfzCYF2WbZ — Taylor (@simplytelling) July 6, 2017 First off, they provided the transparent iPhone picture so that was easy enough. The last photo I took that wasn’t work or school related was a…

can i breathe? – design assignment –

It’s the third…or fourth day of the week. I need coffee. Today’s design assignment is something I found to be quite cool…but it’s also a game. A game without a prize…sorry. Today’s assignment is called “Four Icons/One Story” and I immediately knew what movie I was going to do. Like always, I used PicMonkey for editing and found the icons…

pay me my money – the daily create –

Last post for today, I promise! Today’s daily create was a little difficult for me. We had to create an invoice for a hyperlink wanting customer trying to purchase a Lamborghini…and my imagination got in the way. #ds106 #tdc2003 welp, they're broke. pic.twitter.com/5B3ZWZ9CLw — Taylor (@simplytelling) July 5, 2017 So, my first dilemma was I ONLY HAVE MY MACBOOK ON…

– the vignelli canon –

Who else is posting multiple times a day to keep up with this curriculum? Let me first say that when I initially saw “The Vignelli Canon,” I thought this would be a manual for Canon cameras. I’m not proud of it, but hopefully others could relate. Anyways, this little book is only 49 pages long which is nice, but despite…

greetings – design assignment –

Happy Fourth everyone! For today’s design assignment, I chose to do a cute little post card from one of my favorite places in Virginia; Old Rag Mountain. There’s a little story behind this mountain. So a while back, I had encountered a back injury at my old job that left me in tremendous pain for a long time. When I…

honeymoon destination – design assignment –

Talk about a difficult assignment, eh? For today’s design assignment, I went ahead and did the required assignment where we cut out a person or people from a photo and place them somewhere else. My poor fiancé is going to be thrilled with the picture I chose… AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. I’m sorry, I had to get that out of the way. A…
