I have always enjoyed the music from games, and when I first listened to Guile’s Theme I knew that I wanted to remix it, so I did, for my first 4-star assignment this week. I started with a MIDI file, and once I had started trying to actually make it mash up I kept running […]

A Moon Shot

For this assignment worth 3.5 stars, we had to create a story of 90 seconds or less. I decided that my story would be connected to my science fiction setting Fallen Heavens, and one assignment from this week had to be related to the character we had created beforehand, and my character is Markus Heyfield, […]

Thoughts on Audio Storytelling

I would agree that when Ira Glass says that writing isn’t like what you’ve been taught in highschool. Even if I had never taken a broadcasting or writing class in high school, I still understand that a paper or story isn’t going to necessarily start with any one particular topic – even if one idea […]

Above And Beyond

For my first assignment, worth 3 stars, we had to create our own logo for a company. I decided to work some on my sci-fi setting Fallen Heavens and made the logo for Heyfield Aerospace Industries, also known as Heyfield Industries, the first company to develop an air craft capable of both vacuum flight and […]

Thoughts On Canon

I feel like the Vignelli Canon was poorly organized, from a reader’s standpoint. As someone interested in design and who has dabbled in design, I didn’t exactly agree with all of what he said, especially when he wrote, “Design without discipline is anarchy” and “Without discipline, design is automatically horrible.” I would disagree because in […]

Fallen Heavens

The Battle of Luna had just begun, and the mercenaries and elite troops of the DLA had started their assault on the Mare Smythii, Interceptors and LRAVs leading the Kidal pilots above while heavy artillery pounded from the lunar vehicles. The War had just begun. Even the North Koreans had reluctantly agreed to join, but […]

Design Blitz

For this assignment, we had to take several photos that we felt represented four of the concepts of design that were discussed on the sight, and in order, I decided to use my photos to discuss minimalism and typography, contrast, color, and finally dominance, with the moon-like planet and the starship leaning in for a […]

Week 1 Summary

Here is the first daily create, the second daily create, and the third daily create. In addition, here is my photo safari. The last things here are my personal assignments for the week (a noble house, a camp poster, an edited game cover, and a spubble). I feel like the assignments for this week were […]

My Thoughts on a Photo Safari

I feel like the assignment was fun, but I also feel like fifteen minutes is by far not enough time to get all the photos I needed – when already I want my photos to turn out well, and then to get that many photos for such a large list of topics or ideas felt […]

Thoughts on Visual Storytelling

How do I feel about visual storytelling versus other types of storytelling? I feel like for me at least, trying to tell a story with just pictures versus audio or written descriptions is much harder – I feel it personally limits how exactly some could picture part of a setting, but then again, I am […]
