This is just part of the Design Assignments my digital media 1 class is doing for (last week Feb. 20) and this week, if I read my assignment correctly. Since today was a snow day and the campus was closed, I decided to work on more of my Week 6 Design Assignments and have been super busy with the fifteen stars worth of design assignments. Most of them are harder than they appear, others only seem easy at first. I never did figure out how to create an animated comic book using a GIF. The last time I tried to follow GIF instructions on the internet, my computer was stricken with malware as a result. It was the most annoying time I spent with hijacked browers. I finally got that cleared up once the weather improved and was able to get the needed software to tackle that.
Instead of doing two daily creates like ususual, I did more than that, but wanted to wait and do some over the weekend as well before posting my daily creates, so here they are:

I've also been tagging on the design safari on part of this week 6 ds 106 assignment. However, it took me some time to figure out how to use the document to add in my Twitter handle and upload my flickr photos to the assignment. I listed mine under the "found examples" of color, metaphors/symbols, minimalism/use of space and form/function/message.
And while I was doing my fifteen stars worth of design assignments, I was unknowningly tagging them as "designblitz" instead and thought that these were part of the design safari. I reviewed the other examples submitted by others on the ds 106 website and stayed up late to post a few of my own. Since I'm snowed in I had to rely on stuff in my own environment for the time being and the assignment was confusing me at first. I have not officially turned in this design safari week 6 assignment yet, because I might find more found examples to add to the list. Plus, I'm not sure how many from the list we're supposed to find on the design safari or if its just a few, like four, for example. I've been keeping track of what I've submitted thus far for the design safari.
