So and So’s Greatest Hits! I chose Fetty Wap, he has been at the top of the charts ever since his hit single “Trap Queen”. For that reason is why he’s been in my music playlist for awhile now. I love how he has his own style he doesn’t follow anyone else, he is creating his on path. His mix of rap and r&b together just sound great together and a lot of people really enjoy it!

I already had these songs so it was pretty easy to import them into audacity and then simply create a mix of the 5 songs. I am pretty happy with the end result, (seeing how I’m not a DJ or anything:) !

Do You Hear What I Hear?

Do you hear what I hear??? These are sounds that I hear very often. All the rain that we have been getting in the last few weeks has been crazy, I basically have gotten used to it. I chose to throw in the traffic sounds also because I am always stuck in traffic on my way to school or when I am on 95, impatient drivers are always blowing their horns! The birds chirping should be a regular sound for anyone, even though they are going to start to slow down since the weather has started to break into fall.

The way that I did this assignment was I found my sounds on YouTube, then I converted them to mp3 files and simply imported them into Audacity. Didn’t take much effort since I have finally figured out how to work the program.

Weekly Summary #6

This week in Ds106 we got do more photography and design which I love! Reading different things about design really makes you wonder when is it going to stop, how far you can go before there is too much. But I realized there is no barriers on it. If you can think of it, you can design it, and add more and more onto it. There are many different categories that come with design like rhythm, balance, dominance and many more. Which I had no idea about, I didn’t know there was a long thought process being designs and pictures.

How well do you feel you completed the requirements of the week’s assignments?

  • I feel that this week I didn’t just put the media I was required but I added a lot more background to each of the assignments and I’m very satisfied with my work.

What gave you trouble? What did you enjoy most? What did you learn?

  • Nothing really gave me trouble this week, it was more fun than anything. I enjoyed doing all of assignment bank designs! And I learned a whole new background on design.

What would you do differently? What questions to you have?

  • I don’t really know what I would do differently because I am very satisfies on how I did all of my assignments.

DesignBlitz

I was assigned to create a “DesignBlitz”. I had to take 4 categories out of 10 and get pictures to represent all of them. At first, I had no idea how to incorporate the categories into photos, but in the end I think! HOPEFULLY

COLOR: I took a picture of myself while I was waiting to play a basketball game. Because I noticed all of colors that I had on and the colors in the gymnasium, so I took a photo and it came out really cool. Everything really POPS!

UNITY: I thought it would be hilarious to set my two nephews in the trunk of my car. They were having a blast playing with a basketball and I thought to myself, I had to take a picture! I think that it is a perfect example of unity, because they are twins so together they are ONE.

FORM/FUNCTION/MESSAGE: I took a picture of my Associates Degree that I got in the mail this week, I thought that It would a great example of something that shows a message. I think that it tells a message to people that if you actually try you can do anything. I was a TERRIBLE high school student, I never thought I would be in college until I put my mind to it and got a degree, now I am working towards my bachelors.

USE OF SPACE: For this category I took a picture of a mix tape cover. For the simple fact that I think it is so cool how designers can put so many things into one small photo and make it look like more than it actually it.

Create A T-Shirt

Created a shirt of my favorite saying “Basketball is Life”. Just because it is a huge part in my life, I wouldn’t be in College right now if it wasn’t for basketball. It is how i got through school all of these years, helped me meet all of my friend, and has kept me out of a lot of trouble. I have no idea what I would be doing with now if it wasn’t for this amazing sport!

I made it by finding a blank jersey template. And I used a photo editor to put a picture of a basketball on it and simply add the text on the shirt. Changing the color of the font and adding the fade effect on the side came last.
