For week 2 we focused on design and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little nervous to start, but once I got into the swing of things I actually enjoyed this weeks assignments and I feel as if I excelled in the assignments. The one thing that I had the most trouble with to start was creating the GIF’s. At first I made my GIF’s using GIMP, but when it came time to embedding them into my website, it came out very grainy and wasn’t playing back like it was supposed to. I kept trying and trying before I decided to explore other ways to create a GIF. After looking at a few different ways I found a program and after that I had no troubles at all creating the GIF or embedding it into the website. What I learned from this is that there are always many ways to do and create things and it just takes some time and practicing in order to find what’s going to work best for you and what you want to create. I really enjoyed doing the design blitz, it was similar to the photo safari we completed in week one. I enjoyed exploring different places and looking at landscape, art, and just designs in general to look at these things with a more artistic perspective. Below I will be sharing my weeks work, let me know in the comments below if you have any questions or comments!
