This week we are learning about design. I have done multiple assignments that have taught me to appreciate all of the little steps that go into advertisements and other objects.
I have worked on two daily creates that allowed me to express some creativity in design. The first one was to put a face onto another picture. I chose to use my dog Jynx’s face because the photo I used of him is my favorite photo that I have ever taken. I had a lot of fun looking through all of the options of where to put his face and ended up deciding on a monkey.

The second daily create was to use different fonts to convey different meanings. I wanted one font to show a cute and sassy tone while the other was to be menacing. It is so interesting how the same message can mean totally different things.

For my next assignment, I watched two TED talks about design and I learned that one of the most important things is that it has to be fun. While I was going through the Canva tutorials, I found myself to be really interested in all of the aspects that go into design and can easily find myself having a great time designing something completely on my own.
Lastly, I went around trying to notice design in my everyday life. I took photos of things that display different design techniques and have learned to distinguish what all of the terms mean. I found that there are objects in my everyday life that I had not truly noticed before that I can now appreciate having this knowledge.
Question of the week!
When thinking about what in our past I would go back and change I have a lot of things pop into my mind. I would stop Hitler and Trump from gaining power. I would keep Freddie Mercury, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, and Janis Joplin alive. All of these things would benefit society in ways that I could not comprehend. If i had to choose one thing to change, it would be to stop British colonization. What would the world be like today if they had not went all over the world trying to settle in and change those who already lived there. Cultures would be true to form and not influenced by British ideals. I wonder what changes there would be in everyday things that we take for granted. What would the composition of the world look like? Would be get along better or worse?
So far this week, I have learned the basic of design. Having newfound interest in making my own content, I cannot wait to see what the rest of the week has in store for me.
