For homework, read the three articles/websites about avatars: “Professional protocol when choosing a Skype avatar“; Chad Renando, “An avatar analysis: Choosing your profile picture“; Michelle Venetucci Harvey. “Design avatars that make sense — and be more inclusive in the process.”
Choose an avatar that you want to use on the OpenLab, and add it to your profile. If you need help, you can refer to this page about adding an avatar from the OpenLab Help section.
Reflecting on that avatar, add as a comment to this post your answers to the questions below:
how does your avatar represent you as a design student with the interests, motivations, aspirations, etc you have written about?
If it doesn’t represent that version of you, you might change it.
Why is it important for it to represent you? Use examples from the readings to support your answer.
(Also, be sure to give credit to the creator of your avatar image, whether it was you or someone else! And be sure you have permission to do so!)
