I chose to do a design assignment through ds106. The objective is to take a word and manipulate the letters to corrorlate with the word. So I decided to use pouring.

First I made the letter P the biggest to give the sense of it as the full pitcher or glass.

Then I wrote each letter of the word to look like a pouring motion. Making the letters smaller as they decend to there ultimate destination which is the last letter to collect all together again like a liquid on the floor or another glass getting filled up.

I used ms paint which is not as good as photoshop because you can actually twist the words on it and it makes it a better look. The computer I am using and my mac unfortunatly doesnt have this so i was left to use paint making my letters one by one which took more time than acutally doing the whole word and manipulating it all at once. It a simple assignment but takes time in order to get the look that you want.


BumPeR StIcKerS

I chose to do a Bumper sticker design assignment. The theme is DS106 and make a few bumper stickers that you would put on your car.
Process, I found 3 images threw google images and photoshopped them.Image 1 I found and added my text inside the area.Image 2 I found this and wanted to put something where the road was divided and you had to stay on the right path sort of thing. Image 3, well thought I would through in a little something for free why not but beware of the small disclosure on the bottom…  I then added some personal text to spice it up abit and make it more appealing. After that I made my appropriate tags and published it.

This assignment was to make a Valentines day card because recent ones that are available on shelves are trash. So I chose to create this design assignment. Not sure if its better though.

First I found a good picture on google to use as my backround. Then thought of a nice little poem while still giving my personal opinion on the holiday itself. Typed the texed in the box did a little color manipulation. And thus created a card. Thought it might be a good assingment after the scary poem I posted before this.

Professor Lockman is Missing!!!!!!!!!!

Please Help Find Professor Lockman Before its to late!!


















Here I choose the design assignment but I made a twist of my own, instead of searching for Dr. Oblivion in honor of his birthday, and because of this hilarious picture I thought I would use our Professor. Can you help me find him? Or choose the best title for me lol.

The Process: First I found this wonderful picture via google images of our own Professor lockman. I then put it in to Gimp for mac. I also downloaded another image of ds106 that I used to put his face on as another layer. After that I added misc text to make it funny and put it on a layer of the checker board for the top to give it a little more backround.

I like this assignment because one I have our teachers picture on it with a really goofy set of glasses. I honestly thought of putting him in a large crowd dressed in white and read and making it a game… LOL “wheres lockman” instead of wheres waldo.

I gotta tell ya this has to be a picture that goes on a dating website I think he would get way to many hits what do you guys think? That should be a ds106 assignment to lol a dating profile made of a goofy picture of an individual.
