This week, as everyone knows, we focused on design. I thought that this week was very similar to photography in terms of what we were looking at as characteristics of design. I really enjoyed reading Vignelli’s booklet. One of my favorite things about it, besides the content was how clear it is that Vignelli loves design. It was really clear that he put a lot of time and effort into what he was saying and for me, that made it more interesting to read.
My favorite assignment this week was definitely the minimalist poster. I had a lot of fun creating it and I think my photoshop skills are definitely improving. I put a lot of thought into the color choices for the background and the lettering, as explained in my post. Another assignment I really enjoyed was the Design Blitz. I thought it was really cool to see how easily and how often we see design in our lives – essentially because it is in everything we do and especially in the things we create – duh.
This week we also had to do three daily creates. I enjoyed this week but I think last week was definitely more fun for me, personally. Although I did really enjoy doing the second one involving the meaning of life. I also loved creating a motivational poster, as I mentioned in my post, I’m slightly obsessed with them. I’m looking forward to the next couple weeks and figuring out our radio show ideas!
