Assignment for Sept. 12

Our assignment for next week will once again consist of several parts:

– If you have not already, finish reading Chapter 1 of Digital Media Primer.

– Explore Getty Images. Conduct an image search and download a couple images related to a particular topic. Download 2-3 images in various sizes. Create a new post on your OpenLab ePortfolio site, including the images and a 1-2 sentence description of why you choose these images. Provide an additional 1-2 sentences describing the file sizes and resolution of the images you downloaded.

– Write a draft Bio statement for your OpenLab ePortfolio. This statement should be 3-4 sentences describing who you are, why you are interested in working in Communication Design, your specific interests within the field, and some of your career and/or education goals. In writing this statement, consider the fact that every single person in this department has written a similar statement. What can you tell us, or how can you tell it, to make your statement stand out? Share your draft statement as a new post on your OpenLab ePortfolio site.

– Sketch some concepts for a logo to use as a banner image on your OpenLab ePortfolio site. This logo should visually represent your biographical information. Consider how the design relates to your draft statement. You should draw these concepts by hand. Take a couple photos with your phone and create a new post on your ePortfolio site or bring the sketches to class next week.
