ds106zone: Introduction to Design


After some introductory admonishments from yours truly to start the episode, Tim Owens and I sat down to introduce the design portion of ds106 in some detail. We started off the discussion around the idea of what makes an artist, and then got into a brief overview of what elements make up good design as well as demonstrated some favorite design assignments from the assignment repository, such as The 4 Icon Challenge, I Can Read Movies, Children’s Book Cover, and The Big Hip Hop. as well as discussed a few web-based resources like The Noun Project, Dafont, and Kuler to name a few. Hopefully sometime on Thursday Scottlo and I will sit down to have a similar discussion about audio, but be sure to tune into his daily podcasts because he is already tearing the audio assignments up, as this show attests to.
