Homework 1: Web Page 1

Homework 2: Infographic

Homework 3: Hotel Website 1

Hotel Website 2 

Homework 4: Hotel Internal 1

Hotel Internal 2

Homework5: Parrallax

Homework 6: Slider

Homework 7: Provost 1 and Provost Final

Homework 8:GameSalad Game (Inside my FileZilla in the gamesalad folder, no idea how to get it out)

Homework 9: Ecommerce Home and Ecommerce Internal

Homework 10: Scrollrama

Homework 11: Isotope- still working on it

Homework 12: Transitional- no chance of starting

I’d obviously like to have my last two projects dropped because they just don’t exist. You haven’t seen my Game Salad game- it’s similar to whack-a-mole with a 30 second timer and sharks instead of moles because everyone hates sharks. You have also not seen my Scrollarama, of which I am very proud so please look. I think it’s a great promotional-type site for my work. Everything is clickable also which is pretty cool. I’d like an A in this class because I think you can definitely see improvement in my work. I’m doing to do a little defending now:

My Parallax was intentionally dark and moody and I decided not to change it. I searched out those photos and shopped them to all look like that, so I’m sticking by that choice because I still like it. It’s Night Before Christmas-y

My Ecommerce site could definitely use more words, but I still think it’s pretty eegant while being functional and simple

My slider is one of my favorites because I started to shoot for these projects instead of searching for images. It was motivational

My Scrollarama is my favorite. It’s simple and matches my site and is pretty

Anywho, this class was really great and I will definitely be taking more web design classes, most likely after I graduate. I’m even considering a graduate degree… what have you done?!

Have a great Christmas!

Redos

Here’s my redo of homework 6: the sequence tutorial. I changed the background image so it wasn’t “sci-fi” like. And I changed the fireplace slide to something that would fit into the background better.

 

Here’s my redo of homework 5: the spritely animation. I restarted from scratch since my first one was pretty awful. Originally, I had a “sporadic balloon” bouncing across the screen. This time, I’ve made the animation into a night sky theme. I used a star spinning across the frame (hopefully smoother than my balloon). I also have a rocket ship coming up into the frame. Since my objects were cartoon-ish, I added a filter onto the sky background to make it look less realistic to fit the theme.

 

I’ll be resubmitting other projects as well, as I finish them.

Homework/ Class 5

This is my parallax slider, you weren’t specific about the type and this was much easier for me. I used the images and texts from the mood board that was previously assigned to us before.

 

This is suppose to be my sprite link, to see the actual animation it has to be opened in photoshop…in the process of figuring it out

I thought that the reading was very interesting how networks can actually build on good ideas. I feel that the person who shared their idea with the network is brave because they could have their idea stolen and could possibly not make money off their idea.

Review on Blog Article:

I thought this was a very interesting article that opened my eyes in terms of how much an impact an audience has on one’s performance, whether it be writing a book, a blog, or a Wiki post. What sparked even more interest was my thoughts while I was reading this article, as I have often been eager to start a YouTube account and  make videos, but I’m a little intimidated knowing the world is my audience. I also thought the article was 100% accurate when explaining how people think a bit more critically, and carefully, when writing entries or blog posts that will be published online. It’s some what motivational knowing that we live in an age where the Internet has had such a positive impact on our society, and being able to grow up while such change is taking place has been quite an experience. The Internet basically lets us share our thoughts, creations, etc., and let virtually the entire world have access. According to the article, this will push people to hopefully do better work as their global audience can be the hardest critics of them all.

Homework 5

After reading the article, I agree that due to the internet and technology I have been inclined to write a great amount more than those did before me.  Until this article, I had never really thought about how much I actually am forced to write due to the constant use of technology and social media. Email and facebook alone have led me to write infinitely more than I have written for any other reason. These same things have also allowed me to access ideas and thoughts faster, probably influencing the way I have grown up and my personal beliefs.  Television doesn’t interest me. Nor does newspaper. My only interaction with outside stories, opinions, or ideas comes directly from my contact with people in real life, and my contact with the internet.

homework 5 blog post

I thought this article was pretty cool because I’m much more traditional so it made me think of the web in a new positive way. I love binding books but then when it gets down to filling them I have a harder time. Maybe if I blogged more regularly or used facebook I would have more of a record. But in a sense a lot of it is pointless. But it’s kind of the only way to keep writing alive these days. I definitely agree with the part about writing for an audience. But there is the issue that not a lot of people are reading what people say. In a sense that does matter. Not for the writer but to keep reading alive as well. I think we just have to make sure more formal writing doesn’t die. It is easy and convenient to post on a blog, so people can do it without much effort. It’s a nice perspective but we need a little of everything to mark our place in history.

How Successful Networkds Nurture Good Ideas

As someone who spends 90% of my free time on the internet, I can definitely agree that the collective mind of the masses helps to inspire great ideas that might not have been thought of otherwise. I get most of my inspiration from things online, whether it be from something that someone said, or something that I saw. If I didn’t have access to this massive network of people, everything that I do would be completely different. Thanks to the internet, I have a great network of friends from around the world. They come from a wide variety of backgrounds, and have a wide variety of experiences to draw from, and they help me to see the world in a completely different way than I otherwise would have.

The article mentions that 90% of everything created is crap, but I think that’s okay. You need to make the really bad stuff before you can get better. As long as you’re constantly producing things, you will eventually improve.

Homework 5

 The article, “Why Even the Worst Bloggers Are Making Us Smarter” is an interesting article. The only problem I had with the article is this sentence, “I’d argue that the cognitive shift in going from an audience of zero to an audience of 10 is so big that it’s actually huger than going from 10 people to a million.” A better word to describe it would be “larger” or “bigger”.

“Before the Internet, most people rarely wrote for pleasure or intellectual satisfaction after graduating from high school or college.”

And people are also writing more because blogs are easy to start and writers can write their opinion easier to a wider audience.

Homework part 3:

I love this article!! Power to the People!!!! Writing has always been very important to me: creative writing, poetic writing, lyrical writing, academic writing, personal reflections, and just general written communication. I typically imagine myself as having an audience whenever I write, and as a result I pay great attention to the cohesiveness of what I am writing, as well as my articulation and grammar. I love reading this article because it excites me to think of all the people who are sharing their ideas and expressing themselves. A greater outpouring and distribution of ideas has the potential to impact cross-cultural understanding and help bridge the gaps between our different, yet collective, human experiences. Moreover, the more people write, the more articulate they become, and this may increase a thirst for knowledge and a desire for better education systems internationally. Also, it is validating to know you have an audience when you write, which in turn adds more value to the expression of your ideas. This validation can lead to people searching for alternative solutions to their issues, rather than resorting to violence. I know I’m getting ahead of myself but these seemingly insignificant shifts have great power as they multiply, expand, and increase their reach to different demographics. Butterfly-effect-esque. And I say Power to the People (intentional caps) because we’re writing more than government! Okay, 90% of it may be crap, but the same ‘law’ applies to the government’s writing.

This is what I’m talking about: “accelerating the creation of new ideas and the advancement of global knowledge.” Hell yea!

Homework 5 blog

I have mixed feelings about this article. Since I don’t really write nor read for fun in my spare time, I can’t relate to the author’s viewpoint. I do, however, understand what the author is trying to convey to the readers. They want it to be known that it’s common for people to perform better when they know an audience will be judging them or looking/reading their work.

I agree and disagree with this statement. I agree because it makes sense why people would try harder to get a better review and leave a better impression on someone higher up. I, however, cannot relate to this statement 100%. When I do writing assignments for classes and such, I do try to do a better job than if no one was reading it. On the other side, when I do art work, I mainly focus on creating something I, myself, find pleasing to my eyes and what I think will look okay. I may keep a small bit of attention into others who may be looking at my pieces to make sure it could be pleasing to others and capable of being understood after some explaining.

I have seen this happening in myself, in particular when it comes to art critiques for school and writing music in my free time. I find it difficult to create anything if I’ll be the only one viewing it. It almost seems pointless. When I have a critique on an art project, I’ll work extra hard on it because I know it will have an audience of critical eyes. I want to impress my peers and not embarrass myself. With music, I find myself at my most creative whenever I’m soon to play for a live audience. This has only happened a few times, but whenever I play a show I’ve found that I write good songs quickly. If I have no audience to look forward to I write much more mediocre songs slowly. Due to this, I definitely agree with what this article has to say.
