Week 5….Off to Sail.

This week was entertaining and eventful! I enjoyed a lot learning about movie titles and the creativeness that comes with graphic designs. First, starting off with the daily creates. I did three of them. Here are the links:

Next, I thought it was very insightful on the information I learned about Bengiuat’s and Vigenill’s career. I feel they are both great graphic designer’s and have both culturally impacted today’s world. The are icons in the making. If you would like to read on my reflection on both artist’s careers, feel free.

Moving on to the assignment back. I had a fun time working with the different tools of editing. I used Fotoflexer.com for the most part to design my photos and designs. I found it pretty easy to use. I concluded with 12 stars with 4 assignments. Check out my unique designs I chose to create:

Lastly, my DesignBlitz! I found this assignment was fairly easy. I enjoyed picking pictures from the Stanton Library of Posters and Ad’s that came across my eye. I downloaded the pictures off my iPhone and shared them to Flickr. Check out my designblitz: (http://embracethegift.com/uncategorized/designblitz-ready-set-go/)
