Week End

First thing I did for this week was do the read and reflect on Viganelli‘s design book. I found a lot of interesting things about design and trying to incorporate them into my work for the week whether it was my design assignments or the design blitz. However, his book was a little different than how we are using it in the digital age though. I really liked the section on calligraphy though, I think it is so beautiful to be able to writing in different fonts.

The next assignment for the week was watching a movie and reflecting on how it portrays noir by the design within it. I watched Blade Runner for this and discovered that the things that are timeless and not specific within noir is the lighting and the unique camera angles.

The major assignment for this week was the DesignBlitz assignment where I took pictures of my day to day life while finding stuff that creates design. A lot of my pictures were taken at the cupcake shop, Sweet Reasons, because convinently my friend and I got cupcakes and a lot of the things caught my design eye! ;) Here is one of my favorite pictures from the assignment:

Of course as always, we have our daily creates for the week! This week I found to be the hardest week for me to actually get motivated to do them. Not quite sure why, perhaps it’s the spring break fever kicking in.

And lastly, I read and reflected on the copyright laws. This was pretty interesting and good to know. I had no idea about the creative commons law and how everything worked. However, it is a lot different from paper to the internet because of how accessible everything is online!

What a great week!

XOXO
