It’s Calling

It’s Calling

My next assignment was a 3 star assignment to create a ringtoneĀ that was 40 seconds or less. My original plan was to edit and layer some guitar tracks to make a ringtone. I spent some time going through freesounds.org trying to find one that worked […]

Radio Show Progress in the HCC

Radio Show Progress in the HCC

I actually feel really good about where my group is at for the radio show project. My group members are Maggie, Laila, and Lilah. We started a google doc on Monday so that we could start coordinating. We decided that it would be best if […]

Haunted Advertisements

Haunted Advertisements

For my first assignment this week I chose to alter the 4.5 star spooky sounds assignment to create a commercial for my groups radio show.

This assignment technically says create a spooky soundtrack using only sounds. However, I altered it slightly so that I could make a commercial out of it. I tried to use as little dialogue as possible in order to stick to the root of the assignment. I took sounds from freesounds,org and recording of my own voice to creat this commercial. Since it’s October I thought it would be fun to create a haunted house ad. I named the house after one of my group members character to try and draw it into the class topic as well. I also thought it was a nice twist in her character is based on Black Dahlia. I had one scary soundtrack throughout the whole commercial and added other layers. I included two evil laughs, one normal and one more clown-like in honor of It’s recent debut. Also, I think clown make most people at the very least uncomfortable if not outright scared. Towards the end I add a violin (as they can be very creepy) and a short pause to make people think it’s the end before scaring them with a scream. Then I added a quick audio file of the haunted house information to make it more like a commercial. I had some trouble to spacing I plan to work on next week to make it better for the actual radio show, but I think it sounds pretty creepy now.

KLLM Poster

KLLM Poster

This is the poster I created for my groups Radio Show, KLLM Radio. So I actually did not do a lot of editing on the image, but I did put a lot of thought into it. The base image is a picture I took while […]

Designs in Week Six

Designs in Week Six

Week six coming to a close, almost halfway there! First there was my design reflection from one of the offered readings. Overall, the reading just really surprised me with the amount of things that creators have to consider when designing an advertisement or making a […]

Weather Woman’s Weatherman Transporter

Weather Woman’s Weatherman Transporter

For my final assignment, I chose this 3.5 design assignment asking me to create an advertisement for a product I wished existed.

Weatherman Transporter

I created a product for my superhero. A Weatherman Transporter. One of her missions is to get rid of bad weathermen. This device allows her (or anyone really) to transport bad weatherman to a place where they can always be right and never disappoint the local residence: Antarctica (which I apparently spelled wrong on the picture.. sorry!). Since there’s never really a question of what the weather will be, he can never be wrong. Plus, they’ll have the penguins to keep them company. I went for a simple large ray gun design for my gun and used cutout so you could see the mystical transporting magic working inside. For the Antarctica side I included the newest resident, the Umbrella Hat Weatherman from my wanted poster a few weeks ago. This is an invention that I know Weather Woman would enjoy, but it is also something that the general public could use to defend themselves when she can’t be there.

Design in the Real World

Design in the Real World

For my DesignBlitz, I found the four following designs. I feel that this design is a good example of message. This is a payment plan poster for the payment plans offered by the Office of Student Accounts. The message is money, needing it and using […]

Super Tattoo

Super Tattoo

For my “select one” assignment, I chose to make my own superpower tattoo. I cannot stand driving. I don’t like sitting in the car sitting in traffic. I don’t like the drain of watching the road in front of me. The only times I do […]

Motivating You

Motivating You

For my second assignment I chose this three star assignment that said to create a motivational poster.

 

Motivational Poster

For this assignment, I was inspired by something last week and my superhero character. Last week, when I listened to the DS 106 radio, I listened to a Batman show where, for the most part, he was very tired and needed a break. I used that inspiration for my own character. Although my character is not fighting super villains every day, health is still very important. Everyone needs their sleep to operate. So “With great power comes great need to take a nap,” featuring miss Weather Woman’s cat Clara taking her own catnap. I feel like nothing gets a message across quite like a cat poster. The “Hang in there” poster with a cat on the rope is one of my favorite motivational posters. I can picture this hanging on Weather Woman’s area at work as a reminder to take a beauty nap so that she’s refreshed to give her daily weather report.

Movie Minimalism

Movie Minimalism

For my first assignment this week I chose one worth 3.5 stars. This one said to create a minimalist poster for a movie. WARNING! MOVIE SPOILER BELOW!!! For this poster, realistically you probably would have had to see the movie to completely understand the poster. […]
